Not too much is better than laying down to sleep at night and knowing your home is totally secure. You don’t need a full-blown Mission Impossible-style laser grid, but a little added security goes a long way. That’s why we’ve put our heads together to make a list of the best wireless security cameras currently available. We also have a separate list of the best smart security cameras that also includes 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 be able to find something that suits their needs.
Best wireless security cameras:
Editor’s note: We will update our list of the best wireless security cameras as new options launch.
Arlo Pro 3
Arlo’s Pro 3 security system is an Amazon’s Choice product that can be easily controlled from the palm of your hand. You won’t need to go full-CSI with zooming and enhancing either — the Arlo Pro 3 records at 2K resolution in color or black and white.
The Arlo Pro 3 system requires a hub that’s included with bundles of two or more cameras. If you already have the hub, you can select the Add-On Camera option on Amazon.
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.
Reolink Argus 3
Reolink’s Argus 3 is another waterproof and wireless security camera. The newest version, unfortunately, drops the included solar panel, but the 5,200mAh rechargeable battery should last you a while. Argus 3 offers a 120-degree viewing angle, PIR motion detection, and two-way audio so you should hear and see everything that goes on. It matches the Blink’s IP65 water-resistance rating, so you should have no trouble recording in any weather.
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 goes to show 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 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 when it comes to response time.
The Deep Sentinel cameras and hub utilize AI to identify threats, so it might be a look at the future of security systems.
