A Wi-Fi-enabled security camera is an excellent way to keep an eye on your home while you’re away. If you can find an Alexa-compatible security camera, it makes watching over your home that much easier. For example, you can check in on the pets while you’re at work, and, in the case of those with built-in microphones, quickly tell your kid that they’re supposed to be studying instead of playing video games. With these cameras, you can ask Alexa to show you what is happening at any point in time and connect your cameras to Alexa routines and smart light bulbs for further home automation.

The sleekly designed Google Nest Cam gives you a 24/7 live stream of your home. You’ll also get alerts in the Nest Aware app, with the ability to control all of your Nest products from one place. You’ll also get two-way audio, and you can hide it just about anywhere, thanks to its diminutive size.

Wyze Cam V3
The latest Wyze Cam v3 comes with all the great features of the favorite v2 camera plus the bonus of 1080p color night viewing thanks to its impressive Starlight Sensor. This means you’ll be able to easily spot your dog playing in the backyard even after the sun goes down. Also, unlike its predecessor, it’s water-resistant with an IP65 rating so that you can use it both indoors and outdoors. Wyze did suffer from a security vulnerability recently but has patched it for devices like the Cam V3.
Wyze Cam Pan V2
Pan and tilt
Another budget option, Wyze Cam’s Pan V2, has a 360-degree horizontal range and a vertical range of 93 degrees. When it detects motion, it’ll even follow the target and tag it within its field of view. You get 14 days of rolling cloud storage from alert video, which is 180p at 15FPS. It also offers many of the features found in the Cam v3. This camera also received the security patch as the Wyze Cam V3 did.
Cream of the crop
The best Alexa devices combine excellent features with ease of use and convenience. For a great Alexa-compatible security camera, you really can’t go wrong with the Arlo Pro 4. Though it is on the expensive side, with its excellent feature set, and solid Alexe integration it is a winner.
