Now that the Easter holidays arrive many of you perhaps go travel somewhere looking for the long-awaited and well-deserved rest, leaving the family home for a few days on a fact that the foreign friends can take advantage of to enter and commit any wrongdoing during our absence.
A good solution to control everything when it happens at home while we are out is the use of surveillance systems such as e.g. IP cameras, that it will allow having everything under control in a comfortable and simple. Here we are going to offer you a selection of some of the most interesting, with prices and specifications for all tastes and needs.
Our first choice is video surveillance IP camera Netatmo Welcome arriving in this selection by offering the possibility of having to face recognition thanks to the integration of a specific software.

On the negative side, because not everything is good, highlight the absence of zoom (although it is not necessary given its angle of vision) and the fact that cannot be controlled remotely, even though they are “failures” that can be ignored.
The Netatmo Welcome addition is a relatively affordable camera that can be found for a few 200 euros in a large number of specialized web.
MyFox Security Camera
The MyFox Security Camera features with cylindrical design that draws attention, especially if we compare it with other cameras of its range and is part of a range of devices focused on home automation that cover functions such as alarms, doors and windows management control, lights…

Is a very interesting model of manufacturer D-Link that account with 5 megapixel optical sensor, resolution up to 2560 × 1920 pixels which It allows to achieve a high quality images well we can see in our smartphone or computer (uses H.264 and MJPEG codecs to reduce the file size) or if we want it, storing a microSD card that we will use as auxiliary support recording.
It integrates a night vision system based on LED lighting by infrared with a range of lighting up to 30 meters and processing of capture and image processing based on WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) technology that improves the quality of intakes when lighting conditions are not good, and especially when there are clear areas, with much glitter with areas in darkness.
A few notable numbers that translate into a high final price, especially if you compare it with other models that we have seen, for the figure to be paid by the D-Link DCS-7517 amounts to the 849,99 dollars.
We got a new step in the scale of cameras, so the Nest Cam that we now try descends to the 211 euros and offers some pretty interesting features that should review.
We have already spoken of Nest, the company that Google bought for just over 3000 million dollars, when referring to your other two devices, because it only has two, and now speak of the Nest Cam is one of the best IP camera video surveillance that can be found.

With regard to connectivity has connections via USB (which serves as a food), Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Internet and how in the case of the MyFox Security Camera has the disadvantage of not having storage system, so if you want to store the recordings we must hire a service provided by the company as Nest Aware, that allows to store up to 10 days of recording for 10 euros a month
