If one of your resolutions is to worry less in the new year, it might be time to invest in home security. And this Amazon deal can help: Today the Foscam R2 home security camera is on sale for $56, down $29 from its list price of $85 and an all-time low.
Foscam might not be as well known as Nest or Ring, but the R2 camera has plenty of strong features to help you keep an eye on your home, with a 110-degree viewing angle and HD streaming. It's also equipped with up to 24 feet of night vision thanks to to a ring of LEDs around the lens, as well as two-way audio, and motion and sound detection. Its best feature, however, is its ability to adjust the angle both vertically and horizontally right from the app, so you can get a better view or follow the action from anywhere. It also includes 8 hours of free cloud storage, with subscription plans available for longer durations.
As we noted in our review, this camera does have one sticking point: it's a bit tricky to set up, with a complicated process and unhelpful instructions. Installation aside, however, we loved its strong video quality, easy-to-use apps, and remote pan and tilt abilities, and at this price, you can afford to spend a little extra time setting it up.
