Samsung SNH-V6430BNH SmartCam
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Why do we call this a smart surveillance camera? Because it does so many little things to help you keep an eye on your home, without the need for a separate hub or control system. It's a weatherproof HD camera that wirelessly coordinates with a free mobile app to keep you informed of what's going on when you're away.
You can choose up to 3 "zones" — such as doors or windows — within the camera's 130-degree field of view, and get an email notification when sound or motion is detected. The camera's WDR (wide dynamic range) settings will make sure you can see who's there, even if he's backlit. Two-way talk lets you converse if necessary.
