Neos Smart Cam
Website: neos.co.uk
Price: £19.99

Neos’ home insurance product uses sensor tech and wireless connectivity to reduce home-related risks — like fire and water damage, break-ins and burglary — by having customers install a range of internet-connected sensors inside their home, included in the price of the insurance product. Customers can monitor and control the connected components from its SmartCam.

The Neos SmartCam is equipped with motion and noise sensors, and sends alerts direct to your smartphone should anything unusual occur. The camera offers live Full HD streaming, which you can access at any time via the app. You can also hear what is happening and respond through the built-in microphone and speaker.

Blink XT
Website: blinkforhome.co.uk
Price: £99.99

Blink’s cameras are motion-detecting. Any movement instantly triggers the cameras to begin recording HD video and audio through the built-in microphone. When the Blink cameras detect motion, you will be sent an instant alert to your device, notifying you in the activity around your home. From here, in the Blink Home Monitor app for iOS and Android devices, one-click will allow you to watch the cameras’ HD footage in Live View, as well as viewing and managing previous clips that the cameras have recorded.

In low-lighting, Blink is equipped with an LED illuminator to ensure clarity of full-colour HD footage. Furthermore, every Blink camera features a temperature sensor that will notify you of dramatic temperature changes that can be monitored in the Blink Home Monitor app. Through the app, you will also be able to make the most of Blink’s multi-system support which ensures that you can monitor different Blink systems – regardless of your location.
