What to Look For
When you watch your video, you need to be able to identify what you’re seeing. It should retain its quality when you transfer the video to your computer. Look for cameras with 1080p video or 4K video resolutions.
Get a camera with a decent sensor. It determines how much light it needs to create a clear video. Having larger sensors allows you to increase the resolution and have less digital noise.
Having a large memory card size will allow you to leave your camera to do its job for a longer period.
Now that you know what to look for, here are some gadgets that have the best quality, sensors, and memory.
1. Arlo Pro 3
This camera is one of the best outdoor wireless security cameras because it doesn’t need a power cord power and it has the best battery life.
It can record 2k quality videos and has built-in infrared night vision and spotlight. However, Arlo Pro 3 needs a more secure base station which you can get when you buy two or more cameras.
2. WCCTV Video Dome
