If you already have a wired network in place, the First Alert 7010B Est. $20 is a photoelectric smoke detector to consider. Also sold under the BRK brand, this smoke detector can be used on the same network with pretty much all current BRK and First Alert interconnectable smoke and CO detectors. You don't get the talking technology found in the pricier First Alert models, but there are latching indicators so you can see which smoke/CO detector in the network initiated the alert. However, that viewpoint is not universal. Though, as noted above, Wirecutter does not test basic smoke detectors, they do conduct research that includes talking to fire experts such as Joseph Keenan, assistant fire marshal in Burlington, Vermont, who says that the better approach is to use separate devices so that each can be placed in locations that are best suited to their type.

Really intelligent. Not only can it notify you if there’s movement in your home, it can differentiate between people and animals, and – what’s really remarkable – it can even identify if it’s a familiar or unfamiliar person. The Nest Cam IQ also has the best image quality of any of the cameras we’ve tested, shooting in 4K and HDR high dynamic range. If someone is in your home, you’ll have crystal clear images of them. The main drawback with the Nest Cam IQ is that to use its full range of functions you’ll have to purchase a subscription to Nest Aware. But if you want the best quality, the Nest Cam IQ is probably the camera for you, especially if you find a deal. It’ll be lighter on your pocket too. The Hive Camera doesn’t work with the Hive ecosystem, and instead has its own dedicated app, which is either going to be a positive or a negative depending on if you already have Hive products, or are planning on building out from your camera purchase. What’s nice is that the Hive Camera has a slot for an microSD card so that you can record footage directly on the camera, with no need for a subscription. The design is more traditional, with a white plastic casing, and a black surround for the camera lens. It has some tricks up its sleeve, like being able to sound an alarm or even replicate the sound of a barking dog if you see someone in your house who shouldn’t be there.
