    Imagine trying to rob this guys house lol

    Thank you for this video.

    But which brand/cameras is best.
    I don’t feel like paying money every month in a cloud.
    I was thinking of Eufy myself

  4. Chris B on December 28, 2021 at 1:55 am

    I agree that a wired NVR is the best system to have. I grabbed a Ring floodlight camera and Ring doorbell PRO 2 to compliment it. The Ring devices do have some lag and after the recent update noticed that the detection zones aren’t working anymore. I looked but couldn’t find a video doorbell with local recording that I liked.

  5. Owen on December 28, 2021 at 1:56 am

    nice video could u check the u bolt pro? thanks happy holidays

  6. gurjantsinghhundal on December 28, 2021 at 2:01 am

    Hello sir which is the best solar light for the wall like you have ?

  7. Patrick C on December 28, 2021 at 2:06 am

    Nice tour man! I used this channel this past year when I was researching for my own home security camera setups and I will continue to do so as I continue to expand my home security as well this coming new year.
    Cheers ✌️

  8. GOD on December 28, 2021 at 2:11 am

    Reolink needs to hurry up and release a poe doorbell camera… or at least a poe dome with two-way talk.

  9. Sukhdeep Singh on December 28, 2021 at 2:12 am

    Looks like you dont have much interest in eufy as compare to Ring. I m usin Eufy from last three months and i have good and bad review.

  10. Paul Miyagishima on December 28, 2021 at 2:13 am

    Love how professional you have set everything up! I also appreciate your record keeping on all of your products. Especially the solar lights. That shows attention to detail. Thanks again! Happy New Year!

  11. Ololade Ogunyale on December 28, 2021 at 2:15 am

    Do what you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. You are excellent at what you do brother. Great job, not just for this particular video, but great job generally in what you do. You do it best, for real.

  12. slosync on December 28, 2021 at 2:16 am

    Great video as always, thanks for the reviews, comparisons, and security hacks, they are really helpful! It would be great if you could do a security tips video for when you are not home or on a vacation, like randomly turning lights on and off or using dog sound effects to give the impression there’s someone at home. Is that a eufy Smartdrop delivery box at 03:36? Thanks again, cheers!

  13. Reginald G on December 28, 2021 at 2:16 am

    Thanks for the tour. After seeing your video I don’t feel so bad with the number of cameras I have around my house. As always thanks for keeping us well informed. All the best in 2022.

  14. ft Long on December 28, 2021 at 2:19 am

    I like ones that are wired and need like 280 degree camera. My internet has very poor WIFI. Any suggestions.

  15. M on December 28, 2021 at 2:19 am

    Awesome video! What about your Ring Solar path light used for the plant box- how is that working now?

  16. xander on December 28, 2021 at 2:20 am

    the best floodlight cam ? i need one that records almost 360 . i have a long driveway so need to cover the entrance and the side of my house , currently using the wyze cam floodlight with the additional camera but the eufy floodlight cam pro is looking good .

  17. Lala Jee on December 28, 2021 at 2:24 am

    Good luck breaking in his house lol

  18. Auroramystic on December 28, 2021 at 2:24 am

    You could be missing out in some money. Just design one your self because it’s just rubber it seems like in just a different shape you could also file a Patent for it and Just find someone from China to manufacture it or drop shipping like how most people do withmerch

  19. Eagle-owl on December 28, 2021 at 2:26 am

    OK I will watch it when you put it in 20 hours ago

  20. BreakTime101 on December 28, 2021 at 2:28 am

    Does the NVR system offer 2 way talk cameras or cameras with lights on them? Also, do you plan on reviewing the outdoor Ring gate sensor?

  21. JCM on December 28, 2021 at 2:29 am

    Guess is the new Eufy secure package holder.

  22. shawn rooks on December 28, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Which one of the reolink would you recommend just need four camera system…thanks

  23. GrumpySalmon on December 28, 2021 at 2:33 am

    Did you ever need any of your security system? Was there ever a burglary for example?

  24. DG on December 28, 2021 at 2:33 am

    Nice set up! I personally like the google/nest cams but if it works for you that’s all that matters

  25. Eric Kessler on December 28, 2021 at 2:33 am

    Life Hackster,
    Wow, a thorough report of all your goodies!
    I really appreciated your summary recommendation of having a hardwired system… and … a wireless. I’m getting ready to start building a home in spring. I will definitely run CAT6 for hardwire per your recommendation. Privacy and security of my data is Essential!
    – However, I truly don’t want my data going out to the cloud or be charged any kind of monthly fee. This seems to eliminate Ring and many others!
    – Further, I really would like to have as FEW IT ecosystems as possible!

    What SYSTEM, or if needed SYSTEMS, for camera (property and entries) lighting security do you recommend if you were building a new home today!


  26. Battle TV on December 28, 2021 at 2:34 am

    Thanks for all your 2021 Tips my friend. Your an asset to YouTube.

  27. Pro - R on December 28, 2021 at 2:36 am

    Nice vídeo

  28. - W I N T E R - on December 28, 2021 at 2:39 am

    I just want to say thanks for not actually saying ALEXA.

  29. zx6guy on December 28, 2021 at 2:39 am

    Looking forward to the video on the Ring subscription pricing

  30. Tobore on December 28, 2021 at 2:41 am

    I’m surprised you didn’t include any nest security cameras.

  31. Yogi P. Ringler on December 28, 2021 at 2:41 am

    Hi! Merry Christmas! First- thanks for all your videos on home security- very informative! Since there are so many to choose from nowadays, I would like to get your recommendation on which ones are the best with the ff features:
    1. With rechargeable battery (not wired)
    2. Compatible with Alexa (and with Live View)
    3. Budget under US$100

    I have been thinking of getting Ring Video Doorbell or Blink, let me know your thoughts, pls.

    Walmart has a light similar to the lupos, the hyper tough 500. Mine has been going two years and only needed to sand and refinish the solar panel once.

  33. 123abc on December 28, 2021 at 2:46 am

    We need ring to become as good as an NVR and allow viewing footage on the NVR remotely with no fees.

  34. Ai on December 28, 2021 at 2:46 am

    @3:35 I’m going to guess that you’ve installed some sort of parcel box?

  35. Joshua Haney on December 28, 2021 at 2:47 am

    You make some of the best videos out there

  36. Gerald W on December 28, 2021 at 2:47 am

    Great review. Have you tried home assistant? I’m in the market of wifi base camera and wanting to learn how to integrate with home assistant, but there are so many cameras and brands out there.

  37. Robert touroo on December 28, 2021 at 2:48 am

    I have a question I have some cameras in and outside I have family that’s wants to come over but they don’t because of all the cameras they thing something illegal is going because of all the cameras I just like tech. How do you deal with friends and family coming over and asking what’s with the cameras? Thanks for the info

  38. ur12cujo on December 28, 2021 at 2:49 am
