A cheap motion sensor for under $30 is one thing, but a motion sensing camera for under $30? Yes, please! When we tested the $29.99 (at the time of writing) Wyze Cam Pan motion sensor camera and learned that it offers 360-degree motion tracking video with no monthly fees, selecting it as our top pick was a no-brainer.
Wyze also provides free 14-day rolling cloud storage, and its free mobile app lets you view footage and control camera settings from your smartphone. The Wyze app sends a push notification to your phone when it detects motion, and it will start recording the motion-triggered event. The camera can even tell the difference between people and pets.
Unlike some of the other devices on our list, Wyze Cam Pan isn't connected to an alarm or a bright light to scare off intruders, but it does have two-way audio. You can access the camera's microphone and speaker from your app so you can talk to people at home, even when you're not there. Plus, it's super easy to install.
