Secure video

Adding a HomeKit Secure Video-enabled camera is a great way to keep tabs on what is most important to you. Several cameras are available on the market already, including indoor, outdoor, wired, wire-free, and doorbells, so there is an option for just about everyone.

Logitech’s Circle View is our favorite HomeKit Secure Video capable camera, thanks to its crisp 1080p imagery, built-in microphone, and easy setup without yet another app to download. This camera’s sleek design works great indoors, and weather resistance keeps you on top of the action outside of your home.

Are you looking for an outdoor wireless solution? The eufyCam 2C is a unique option that combines a floodlight with a high-resolution camera. Best of all, it runs on an internal battery that can last up to six months on a single charge, so you only have to top it off a couple of times a year.
