Home security cameras used to be for the rich, but not anymore, as Belkin’s NetCam HD+ proves. WIth it, you get a feature-rich IP home security camera for a budget-friendly price. The NetCam HD+ is an update to Belkin’s similarly named NetCam HD. Like its predecessor, the NetCam HD+ captures 720p video in daylight and at night, and provides access to video over a mobile app available on Android and iOS. For $10 a month, you can add cloud storage and push alerts when motion is detected. New in the NetCam HD+ is two-way talk and integration with Belkin’s WeMo products, a line of home accessories that you can control remotely.

Things take a downturn when trying to use the camera as a security device. The movement detection is limited to five settings, and even on the lowest, it is still overly sensitive.
