The Top 7 Best Outdoor Security camera’s

smart home security

We look at the Best outdoor security cameras for 2022 which are simple self install meaning no costly electrician and or fitting. As we look and review are all wireless and work via your homes WiFi how easy can it be to keep your home secure and with so many of us now returning to work its a great time to invest in that little piece of mind.


More and more of us securing our homes we overlook securing the ground around our homes which has become a bit forgotten and with 60% of home burglaries the intruder has entered from the back garden via a fence or gate. Making sure this access is point is covered with a camera that is motion triggered and floodlight can be just the deterrent that’s needed and with added two way talk can be that added threat needed to see off the baddie

Covering the area that’s easiest accessed sometimes this is all you need. Before buying or installing the best Outdoor security camera always check the area you want to cover and checking the Wifi strength is essential.

What do you need before you buy ...

You need broadband with WIFI capabilities with a minimum of 10mbps with an additional 2.5mbps to access High definition video (check Broadband supplier). The Wifi connection is also used to hook up and to access the video via your smart phone and tablet as some manufactures use a cloud based storage.

Are outdoor Cameras weather proof..

First of all make sure you buy the outdoor model firstly as the name will suggest outdoor cameras will be fully waterproof but I would suggest fitting somewhere which is clear of high winds as these can distort the picture and sound quality. Also as some models have magnetic fittings they could be blown down and damaged but the majority of the models (some may differ) will guarantee water proof with what is called a IP56 certification which it means simply put it should be protected from a high pressure water jet in any direction.
