It’s great to be able to crawl into bed at night and know that your home is totally secure. We’re not talking about full-on laser grids or guard dogs, but a little added security goes a long way. That’s why we’ve set out to make a list of the best wireless security cameras currently available. We also have a separate list of the best smart security cameras, including wired options, which you can check out via the link below.

Wireless cameras are great if you have a reliable Wi-Fi setup, and you don’t mind changing the batteries every so often. The list includes both indoor and outdoor models, so everyone should find something that suits their needs.
The best wireless security cameras:
Editor’s note: We will update our list of the best wireless security cameras as new options launch.
Arlo Pro 4
Arlo’s Pro 4 security system is an amazing camera system you can control right from the palm of your hand. You won’t need to go full-CSI with zooming and enhancing either — the Arlo Pro 4 records at 2K, and in HDR. It has an integrated spotlight too, just in case your backyard is too dark. But there’s also night vision for when that light is not enough.
It’s completely wireless and connects directly to Wi-Fi. This means you won’t have to spend extra or deal with a hub. And if you’re worried about battery life, it’s expected to be about 6 months.
The Blink Outdoor is a great option if you’re looking for a durable exterior camera. It’s not only IP65 water-resistant, but it also lasts up to two years on just two AA batteries. If you’re used to having motion around your house, you can also set up specific activity zones, so you only record what matters. The Blink Outdoor works well indoors as well, and you can get a kit of up to five cameras.
Ring Stick Up Cam Battery
Ring security cameras are very popular. Amazon makes them, so they integrate very tightly with the company’s ecosystem. The Ring Stick Up Cam Battery isn’t the best the brand offers, but we believe it’s the better option in terms of value. Design, functionality, and ease of use are also outstanding.
The camera is completely wireless, as it connects to Wi-Fi, needs no hub, and comes with a battery life that can last up to 6 months. The unit is weather-resistant, so you won’t need to worry about it being under the rain. Other features include 1080p video, real-time notifications, 2-way communications, motion detection, and more.
The Canary Flex is another option that doesn’t require a hub to connect all of your cameras. While the Canary Flex system only saves recordings for 24-hours as standard, the two-camera kit includes a one-year premium service. The premium service makes it possible to save recordings for 30 days, and you can use two-way audio to communicate throughout your house.
Blue by ADT
The Blue wireless camera from ADT shows that there aren’t just startups in the home security game. ADT has been around since 1874, and Blue is just the latest security measure from the company. Blue is smart home compatible, so it’ll work with your favorite assistant, and it even offers facial recognition so you can be notified when loved ones are approaching your house. The Blue camera can also broadcast a siren using your smart speakers if its motion sensors are tripped.
The last few options have been wireless security cameras that you have to monitor yourself, but Deep Sentinel boosts security to the next level. Deep Sentinel includes a Live Guard service where trained professionals will monitor your videos and respond to incidents quickly. Of course, live professional service doesn’t come cheap, but it could make a difference in response time.
The Deep Sentinel cameras and hub utilize AI to identify threats, showing the future of security systems.
