Securing your home has never been easier, but the options for smart gadgets can be overwhelming. So we found some of the best home security cameras and deadbolt gadgets to help you lock down without breaking your bank.


1. LightCam


Let’s start our list of best home security cameras with LightCam – a screw-in smart light bulb and high-definition camera in one. “LightCam requires no drilling, no wires, no hassle. You just plug it in, turn it on and it works,” explains its commercials. “Your actual lens comes out, so you can aim your camera down. If you have a vertical sconce, you can actually go ahead and switch that so you can get the viewing angle you want.” The camera has motion detection, infra-red and two-way communication. Plus, the lens can point and record in almost any direction. LightCam will hit the shelves in June with prices starting around $110.


2. U-Bolt


Next up – the classic deadbolt gets a 21st century upgrade with the Ultraloq U-Bolt Pro six-in-one smart deadbolt. This bad boy uses your fingerprint as your key, which means it’ll never get stolen or forgotten! It can also be locked and unlocked by a smartphone app, passcode, and handsfree with Bluetooth when the phone is nearby. Plus, the app lets you give temporary codes for guests and neighbors. The U-bolt Pro will be available in June starting at around $130 dollars.


3. Brinno Duo


Last on our roundup of best home security cameras is the Brinno Duo smart peephole door cam. So how does it work? There’s a monitor on the inside of the door that lets you see who’s outside. And when you’re not at home, you can see who’s at the door through the smartphone app’s live view. The Brinno duo smart peephole door cam is available online with prices starting at around $200.
