Locking the doors, keeping your fingers crossed, and hoping for the best is no way to leave the house anymore. These days there are a ton of home security devices you can access 24/7 from virtually anywhere to check on the status of your property. But what about the garage? Not to worry—we've compiled a great selection of home security cameras designed to fit a range of needs.
Whether you're old-school and want to stay far off the grid, you're tech-savvy and have all the smart home gadgets you can get your hands on, or you're somewhere in the middle, there's a garage security camera that's perfect for you.
The Phoenix M2 indoor/outdoor wireless security system offers high-quality video and long-range infrared night vision (up to 40 feet) for clear viewing at any time. The seven-inch LCD display allows you to view up to four cameras simultaneously, with a high-resolution full, split, or quad screen. Thanks to two-way audio, you can greet visitors and delivery drivers, and a security siren warns off intruders.
The Pro 3 has a wide 160-degree-diagonal-viewing-angle lens and offers automatic image correction to avoid the fisheye effect. Whenever someone enters your yard or driveway, the motion-sensitive device can project a 2000-lumen light beam and start recording in high definition. With mobile notifications and two-way audio, you can immediately communicate with visitors and delivery drivers. The wireless setup provides flexibility and makes installation easy.
Blink's outdoor, weather-resistant, smart security camera with motion detection and infrared night vision syncs with Alexa and other Amazon smart-home devices as well as your phone for around-the-clock protection whether you're home or not. With its real-time view and two-way audio features, the wireless system allows you to see and speak with visitors via the Blink app.
Optimized specifically for the garage, the myQ Smart Garage camera can work on its own or add live or recorded video and motion notifications to a myQ-connected Smart Garage door opener such as Chamberlain. Two-way audio lets you remotely listen and speak to visitors and delivery drivers. The magnetic mounting base (adhesive is optional) easily attaches to a garage-door opener or shelf. Best of all, the camera will operate in temperatures from –4 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
With the Nest cam, you can livestream video in full 1080p HD resolution. The app provides mobile alerts and notifications, allowing you to check in from anywhere 24/7. While this isn't designed specifically for garages, it offers night vision with eight infrared LEDs to provide clear video in dark conditions. Two-way audio lets you communicate with delivery drivers—or tell accident-prone kids to stop messing with your tools.
A vast improvement over previous iterations, the v3 offers color night-vision HD video, IP65-rated weather resistance for indoor or outdoor use, and motion detection that sends notifications and alerts to your phone. If you're looking to sidestep the high cost of branded security cameras—or wish to avoid Google and Amazon—the Wyze Cam v3 is for you.
The wireless Argus PT 2K can turn its head 355 degrees horizontally and 140 degrees vertically. It stays charged via a solar panel and a 6500-mAh battery, and the motion sensor and mobile notifications allow you to deal with intruders quickly. This gadget has functionality with most smart-home devices like Alexa and the Google Assistant, and a two-year warranty protects your purchase. Up to eight users can simultaneously access the camera view via the app.
