Hottest Security Cameras Availble on the Market
Security cams allow you to keep track of everything that’s going on in your home and around it. There are a multitude of security cams available in the U.S. and Canada, different models by many different manufacturers, it may be difficult to choose the security cam best suited to your needs. We’ve gathered for you useful info about the five best selling security cams, info that will make it easier to zoom in on the model that fit the bill in your case.
In general what you should look for in a security cam is that it will be easy to set up and use, that it is attractive but at the same time discreet, that you will be able to check in easily from anywhere (via the internet, from your phone, a tablet or any computer), that it provides you with clear, high quality images, that it’s reliable and will serve you well for many years. Price is naturally also something to consider, especially if you intend to install a relatively large number of cams.

The Piper NV by Icontrol Networks
Although a relatively new player in the security cam market Icontrol Network has produced an excellent model, the Piper NV. This security cam doubles as a home automation hub allowing you remote control over any smart device you’ve installed in your home. It has night vision and a super fast processor.

It allows you to keep track not only of what’s going on (by way of streaming 1080p video) but also has sensors for monitoring air quality, temperature and humidity. This model is great value for money at around 200$.
