Truly Wire-Free Webcams

If you’re considering using webcams to monitor your home or business, there are a plethora of options in both wired or wireless configurations.
But a wireless webcam really isn't wireless if you have to plug them into an electrical outlet, right?
Not only does this make them unsightly, it can drastically limit where you are able to setup the webcams.
If you want a truly wire-free option, take a look at Netgear’s Arlo security webcams.
They are HD webcams that are also weatherproof and use long life battery system so they truly are wireless.
They are not made for constant streaming of video, they're designed to provide a motion sensing monitoring system that alerts you when motion is detected.
I've been using them to monitor a rental properties front and back doors when it’s not being used, so I get an alert any time someone approaches the house along with an option to watch a 10-second video to see what's happening.
Instead of paying a monitoring service, you're alerted directly via your smartphone!
