Cameras are a great add-on to any security system. They let you keep an extra eye on your home from afar, gather a record if anything happens and even offer a way to check why an alarm has been tripped before calling the authorities.
Frontpoint offers security cameras for both indoor and outdoor use. Both are wireless, meaning you don’t have to run wires back to a base station for them to work. You do need power, but Wi-Fi handles the rest.

The indoor camera has full HD with night vision, automatic recording when motion is detected and notifications when new clips are available. The outdoor version adds the ability to withstand freezing temps and other environmental hazards.
Clips from either camera are automatically stored for later viewing in the app or through the web portal. The cameras work alongside other add-ons, like the Skybell video doorbell, which lets you see who comes knocking.
You do need the Ultimate Package ($44.99 per month) to use the Frontpoint security cameras.
