If you've visited your local Bunnings Warehouse anytime in the last year, you'll have no doubt noticed the ever-growing smart home security section. Perhaps you've had a little peruse while en route to buy yet another indoor plant, but never quite felt ready to take the leap and throw a camera in your cart.

Well, to help out, we've ranked the best security cameras Bunnings has to offer. We've also linked to other retailers—as long as they offer the product for the same or cheaper price—in case you don't live near a Bunnos (or simply can't be bothered).

1. EufyCam 2C: Best Bunnings security camera overall

EufyCam 2C
$343.20
Price is accurate as of post date. Read full disclaimer.

Whether you're planning on building out a security system with a camera in every room or simply want one to keep an eye on the nursery and one on the backyard, the EufyCam 2C system is a great starting point. It comes in two, three and four packs, with add-on single cameras available for around $160.

The EufyCam 2C boasts just about every feature you could need in a home security camera, including HD resolution, two-way audio, colour night vision (thanks to the onboard spotlight), human detection and six-month battery life. It's also got a decent 135-degree field of view and is compatible with all three major smart home systems (Apple HomeKit, Alexa, and Google Home).

This starter kit also comes with the Eufy HomeBase, which also functions as local storage for your camera footage. Yep, that means no monthly fees for cloud storage like you'll find with Ring or Arlo. The HomeBase includes 16GB of storage, but on the downside, you can't expand it if you decide to add more cameras.

2. EufyCam Solo S40: Best solar-powered security camera

Though some of the security cameras Bunnings sells can be solar-powered, they generally require you to purchase the compatible solar panel separately. We like the EufyCam Solo S40 because it has its own integrated solar panel right there, making installation a cinch.

It captures ultra-crisp 2K footage with full-colour night vision up to eight metres away, so you'll always be able to see what's happening. There's also 8GB of onboard storage, meaning no monthly fees and better-protected data.

con Storage not expandable
con Placement limited by sunlight

The EufyCam Solo S40 has a good IP67 weatherproof rating, but by virtue of being solar-powered, placement is somewhat limited as the camera needs direct sunlight. If not, you may need to manually charge it from time to time.

3. Ring Spotlight Cam: Best Bunnings outdoor security camera

The Ring Spotlight Cam is a versatile little thing. It comes in both a battery-powered and wired version and in black or white, so it'll suit just about any outdoor area.

This HD camera boasts a solid 140-degree field of view, allowing for greater coverage of your outdoor space, plus two-way audio, LED light strips and a remote-activated siren to scare away would-be intruders. We also like that it includes Lifetime Theft Protection, which basically means Ring will replace your camera for free if it gets stolen.

con
Cons
con Colour night vision only works on wired version
con Monthly cloud storage fees

As for the negatives, there are a couple of major ones. First, this camera (and all Ring cameras) doesn't include local storage. That means you'll have to fork out $4.95 per month for cloud storage, more if you have more than one Ring camera. Also, colour night vision only works with the wired version, so keep that in mind if it's a key feature for you.

4. Orion Pan and Tilt Camera: Best budget Bunnings security camera

Best budget
Price is accurate as of post date. Read full disclaimer.

It's hard to find a decent security camera for under $50, let alone one with the features that the Orion Pan and Tilt Camera offers.

Ideal for keeping an eye on the kids or a four-legged troublemaker, this budget-friendly HD camera can be viewed live and controlled remotely via the Grid Connect app, allowing you to pan the camera 355 degrees horizontally and 90 degrees vertically.

Plus, setup is an ultra-simple plug-and-play affair, so no tools or batteries are required.

Pros
pro Affordable price
pro Pan and tilt functionality
pro Local storage up to 128GB

Cons
con Can be slow to respond
con Cheap build quality

Of course, there are some compromises that come with a price that low. The Orion Pan and Tilt Camera feels a little cheap, and it's not as responsive as more expensive cameras. Still, for $39, it's a total steal.

5. Arlo Pro 4: Best security camera for smart homes

If connectivity is key, the Arlo Pro 4 is the smart home security camera to beat. It's compatible with HomeKit, Alexa, and Google Home and comes with some seriously impressive smart features, like different alerts for people, vehicles and packages, with AI-assisted object detection.

With 2K video resolution, colour night vision and a massive 160-degree field of view, the picture quality is perhaps the best we've seen in a security camera.

Pros
pro Wide 160° field of view

con
Cons
con High upfront price
con Subscription required for cloud storage and some features

The major downside to the Arlo Pro 4, however, is that a lot of its hallmark smart features are locked behind a paywall. That said, with no onboard storage, you're practically forced to pay for the subscription anyway, which unlocks both cloud storage and all those paywalled features.

Final word

Next time you're in the Bunnings smart home security section, we highly recommend picking up the EufyCam 2C two-camera package. It's a fantastic all-rounder that offers great value, with no nasty hidden fees. Still, any of the cameras on our list are more than up to the task of protecting your castle.
