The Kami Indoor Camera
The fifth product on our list is the Kami Indoor Camera. Resembling a mini droid from Star Wars, what the Kami Indoor Camera lacks in stealth it makes up for in value for money and usability. The chief appeal here is an unobtrusive desktop or bedside surveillance or security unit with a rotating camera that provides 360-degree coverage, with decent video quality and attractive looking design. Power is provided via a micro USB port near the base, and what’s even more interesting is that the camera’s base is also motorized, enabling it to pivot and track any movement it detects. As with most things these days, the camera is controllable and set up via a smartphone app, with user-selectable settings to governing behavior. Through the Kami and Yi home app for iOS and Android, and with its dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity, you get 24/7 access to your camera’s live feed anytime.
You can also access Kami cloud, live view, adjust privacy settings, communicate over two-way audio, and much more with these apps. Kami also provides you with smarter alerts, so you will only be notified when it matters. Its pros are: * It comes with a 360-degree rotation, so it covers an entire room from one location. All you have to do is mount it on a surface or on the ceiling and it gives you the control over what you want to see; and * It provides extra data security. With the help of Microsoft Azure, your data is protected with the same security and privacy level that protects millions of businesses worldwide. However, the cons are: * It does not support Alexa or Google voice commands.; and * There is no interaction with other smart devices or support for IFTTT applets. A generous feature set and sharp image quality make the Kami Indoor Camera a compelling choice for anyone who wants to keep tabs on their home while they’re away.
The Tapo C200
the fourth place is the Tapo C200. A sturdy product that provides wireless indoor security and up to 30 ft night vision, the Tapo Smart Camera is backed by TP-Link’s 22 years of creating high-quality security products. The Tapo comes with a smooth Pan and tilt feature that provides a 360-degree horizontal range and 114-degree vertical range. It offers a high definition crystal clear video quality output of 1080p, even when you’re using it at night. It also provides visual distance up to 30 feet.

The Fredi Hidden Camera
The Fredi Hidden Camera may be the size of an after-dinner mint or a cheese cracker. However, it is smart enough to detect motion, shoot 1080P video, capture images to an optional microSD card or record on a constant loop, and even ‘see’ in the dark. It provides you with live full HD videos both day and night. Like many of its ilk, Fredi can set up an alarm notification to your smartphone through the Mycam app. It sends images to your email address, so you can monitor how the nanny is getting along with the kids, or how the dog you’ve left home alone is bearing up. This hidden camera works perfectly to detect danger or movement in the area with its 110-degree wide-angle lens.
That’s not all though, as this miniature wonder features six infrared LEDs and a night vision distance of five meters, so you can leave it monitoring proceedings while you sleep if desired. Its pros are: * It can record on a constant loop; and * It sends image notifications straight to your phone. However: * Its battery only lasts up to 4 hours. Small but terrible, the Fredi Hidden Camera wins the prize for the most compact spy camera while providing you features and functionalities that you can get from bulkier devices.
