Re: Security camera
If you're using a camera for security purposes, it really needs to be completely hidden or camouflaged or the guilty party is simply going to disable or destroy it.
This is the downside to non-cell or non-wifi wildlife cameras. The intruder just steals the camera. To be effective, you must have internet recording capability. They may still steal the camera, but you have a vid and notification of them doing it live.
The cellular wildlife cameras are an interesting alternative, but I noted the need to pay subscription services right out of the box, just like Arlo. Cheaper device tho. I wonder how smartphone functionality and battery life compare.
I'm not aware if the cellular wildlife style cameras allow you to just dial into your camera and see how things look. This would be of incredible value to check on docklines, etc, during a storm. With Arlo, you can.
