Our test covers indoor and outdoor wireless cameras that work locally and over the internet, giving you access via your computer, tablet or smartphone. This test includes cameras that plug into mains power and also includes "wire-free" models that are battery powered and don't require a power cable. Our expert testers give every wireless security camera a thorough workout to help find the models that:

  • are the best performers
  • are easiest to install and use
  • have the best features

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find which wireless security cameras have the specs you might need, such as pan/tilt and zoom functions, remote control, microphones and speakers, motion detection, battery powered operation, and local and cloud storage.

See how we test security cameras. Our security camera buying guide explains the features to look for.
