Blink Outdoor

The Blink Outdoor gets the job done if you're bought into Amazon's smart home universe. It's hampered somewhat by weak night vision, and the need to pay extra for incident recording when alternatives sometimes include this for free, but Alexa addicts will find plenty to like about this affordable, long-lasting wireless security camera.

Retail price: $99.99

$99.99 at Amazon
