Specs-wise, the Mi Home Security Camera is solid. It offers 1080p HD recording and has a 130-degree wide-angle lens so you get more in the frame. It has advanced night vision so it can record day or night and motion-detection with smart alerts to keep you posted on any suspicious activity in your home. There's also a built-in speaker and mic for two-way communication. It can even be configured to not record when specific phones are within a certain distance of the camera so you or your partner being home doesn't trigger it to record unnecessarily.

You can see what your camera sees via the Mi Home app for iOS or Android. Alternatively, you can use your Alexa device with a screen to easily see what's going on. The Mi Home Security Camera supports microSD cards up to 64GB.
