Is Prime Day the best time to buy a smart home security camera?

Amazon’s Prime Day is one of the best sales events to buy a smart home security system. The Prime Day sales event comes with discounts on a huge number of products, smart home security cameras being some of the products that are discounted.  

Not only are smart home security cameras discounted on Amazon for Prime Day 2022, but they’re also discounted by the online retailer’s competitors. For smart home security cameras, Best Buy is the first place we’d look for additional smart home security camera deals during Prime Day 2022.

Which smart home security camera should I buy?

To figure out which smart home security camera you should buy, consider the following:

  • How many rooms or areas do you want to monitor? This decides how many cameras you should buy.
  • Do you want to monitor outdoor areas? This decides whether you should get weather-proof models. 
  • Do you want wireless smart home security cameras? Or wired? This applies to whether you want cameras outdoors, but it also applies to convenience indoors, too. Wireless cameras give you more freedom for placement, as you don’t have to place the camera near a power outlet. Plus, no wires mean less clutter. Just note that wireless smart home security cameras run on batteries that need to be charged, usually every few months. 
  • Check out the subscription plans for each platform. Most home security cameras have simple functionality without a subscription plan, but you’ll get the most out of your system with a subscription plan, like saved videos and enhanced motion sensing. Check what you get with and without a subscription plan, as well as the cost of the subscription plans.
