3 Wireless Security Camera Systems with Remote Viewing

Easy to Install, Wireless Cameras with Apps to Watch Them on

Security cameras are becoming more and more necessary today because of all the online shopping that we do. People are seeing a rapid increase in packages getting stolen from their porches. Also, if something were to happen to your property it would be nice to see who did it and have video evidence of that person.

In this article I am going to cover the 3 best wireless security cameras that allow for remote viewing from a smartphone or computer.

What is the best wireless outdoor home security camera system?

Ring, Arlo, and Blink are some of the best wireless outdoor security cameras. All of these cameras come with an app on our smart phone to view things remotely.

These cameras are all affordable and run off of batteries. This makes installing them super easy since you don’t have to drill any holes to run wires through. The batteries last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on the camera.

  • Mobile App to Watch Cameras

  • Weatherproof

  • 1080p and Night Vision


  • Not very many smart home features

  • High upfront costs

  • No touchscreen keypad

The Ring Stick up Camera is one of the best in my opinion. It comes with an app on your smartphone that allows you to watch the cameras anywhere you are at as long as you have cell service or wifi. Built inside of the camera lens is a motion sensor that can alert you whenever something approaches the home. You can also just watch everything in real time from your phone as it happens. If you don’t have access to your phone you can always stream it to your computer.

Ring Outside Camera Lifestyle

The camera streams everything in a full 1080p video and is night vision. The battery lasts about 6 months before it needs to be recharged. Since it runs off a battery you don’t have to worry about installing any wires and running them through the house. The other nice feature about this camera is the two way talk ability. You can have a full conversation with anyone around the house all through your phone! This is a great feature to make it look like you are home even if you are away.

Arlo is another great wireless camera option. Arlo has cameras for inside and outside the home. This makes it a great camera system for anyone who wants to be able to see all angles of the house. Once you have the cameras installed, you can download the app on your phone and watch the cameras from there. You can also do it from a computer.

These cameras are similar to Ring because they also have a full 1080p video quality and are night vision. So this will leave you with great video quality to see what is going on around the home. These also come with two way talk ability so you can have a conversation with anyone that is around the home all through your phone.

##How far can a wireless security camera transmit?

Since the cameras need wifi to stream the video, they can be placed as far out as your wifi signal goes. If you need to install a camera in a place that doesn’t have wifi you can check out my articles here reviewing cameras that run off cell phone towers

Blink Outside Camera


  • Most Affordable

  • Camera Battery Last 2 years

  • 1080p and Night Vision


  • No Magnetic Mount

Blink has some of the most affordable camera options. Just because the camera is cheap doesn’t mean bad quality! These cameras also come with an app that you can download and watch everything that is happening around the home. You can also stream it to a computer. Built inside of the camera lens is a motion sensor that allows you to be alerted whenever someone walks in front of the camera. Once you get the alert on your phone, you can just pull it out and see who is there!

These cameras pack a punch with their tiny design! They are equipped with a 1080p lens and night vision. They also offer two way talk. This is always a nice feature to have because you can tell people to just go away!

I believe that for the price you pay and for the quality that is offered, Blink is the most bang for your buck.
