some of theI recommend , But the number of great options that cost less money is increasing. Here or here is my curated list of the cheapest home security cameras priced under $ 100. These three cheap home security cameras abound in terms of features and functionality, but they are all solid options.

If you are looking for an inexpensive security camera system with solid performance, you really can’t beat the voice cam. Here is the gist:
- It costs $ 20
- It comes with two weeks of free cloud storage
- The camera has optional local storage via a built-in microSD card slot
- You can set a custom motion detection zone for free
These things make the combined voice cam monitoring system difficult to match. Yes, it is indoor-only and the app is not perfect, but if you want a live streaming indoor camera then the Vise Cam is a great option that works well in a short time. It also works with Alexa voice commands – and other voice devices. Read more from Tips Clear

Tend Secure’s Lynx indoor camera (now called Indoor 2 camera) will set you back $ 60. This indoor cam has all the regular features of a typical home security camera, such as live streaming, motion detection and night vision. But this indoor security camera comes with free seven-day video clip storage and facial recognition capabilities.
Use the application to build a custom database of friends, family members, and any other regular visitors (although with social disturbances in full effect, visitors are probably on minimal authority). The camera will then detect the faces and send an alert to your phone to let you know that he saw, “Dave” or “Molly.” Camera facial recognition performance improves over time, even with use.

The Blink XT2 starter kit comes with a Blink XT2 camera and an essential Wi-Fi module – all for $ 100. After that, any additional XT2 cameras you buy cost the camera system for $ 90. (Looks like it should be less than that because the Wi-Fi module is alone for $ 50, but it’s still a good deal.)
The camera itself is battery powered and runs on two AA lithium-metal batteries. It is designed to last for two years. So far, the XT2 I’ve been testing for a long time has been running uninterrupted since last July. It also has free video storage which you can see in the Blink app.
Blink’s XT2 camera is weather resistant, so you can put it in an external camera anywhere (as long as it’s within the Wi-Fi range). The test I’m doing as an outdoor camera has survived 100-plus-degree days, snow, hail and regular ol ‘storms. A windstorm knocked over the second-storey deck at the Tips Clear Smart Home – and it was fine. Read more from Tips Clear
