However, the Safe and Sound requires a hard wired connection, and we found that the location of these connections doesn't make it the most conducive for using all of Alexa's capabilities. What Owners Are SayingOf the 200 odd reviews on Amazon where it has an average rating of 3. 3 stars, the most positive commenters noted its ease of installation, as well as the fact that they could stream music, and that the alarm's nightlight was bright. Chief complaints were that it doesn't support all of Alexa's features such as Drop in, and that it's expensive.

Therefore, we assessed the brightness of the nighttime picture instead, with brighter video producing more detail. The top nighttime security camera was the Belkin NetCam HD+, which illuminated our room better than other cameras. AudioOur audio tests took a simple approach:we listened for loud, understandable audio. Some cameras were loud but the audio was distorted, while others cameras lacked distortion but were too quiet, making it harder to hear activity. The Foscam C2 was the only camera we tested with no audio distortion. Built in speakers on each camera we tested, except the Y cam Indoor HDS, let you use the mobile app to talk to anyone near the camera. Ease of UseTo test ease of use, we tracked setup issues and whether we had to contact customer support. Cameras that quickly connected to Wi Fi and had simple setup steps scored well. The Samsung SmartCam HD Pro had the easiest installation. Next, we looked for useful smartphone apps that show recordings, live streaming and basic settings on the first screen you see. The apps from Oco and D Link were the easiest to use.
