Our Verdict

Mountain has taken all it’s learnt from its first keyboards and created the best-feeling, most usable 60% gaming keyboard I’ve ever used. It’s solid, reliable, responsive, and offers the best typing experience around. It’s also good-looking and surprisingly expandable with the numpad accessory, alternative switches, and PBT keycaps.

For
  • Great typing feel
  • Reassuringly robust
  • Responsive
  • Optional modular numpad is great
Against
  • Base Camp software remains a minor weak point
  • Overall package gets expensive

I don’t like 60% keyboards. That’s the sort of admission so early in a review of a new 60% keyboard that might have you questioning my suitability for said review. Plus I’m aware you will have already seen the high score, the award badge, and may now be finding this whole opening spiel somewhat ludicrous. But while every other 60% keyboard I’ve ever used has been admittedly adorable, they’ve been utterly unsuitable for actual day-to-day use. 

The Mountain Everest 60, however, is just as ickle as the competition, just as cute, and has all the enthusiast keyboard extras you could want, but crucially has the total utility to be your daily driver of a keeb.

Previously, a tenkeyless (TKL) board was as small as I would reasonably go for my home setup. And it’s actually been the Mountain Everest Max which has been my go-to keyboard since it first launched nearly 18 months ago. That’s a board which is able to be both a TKL unit and a full-size keyboard thanks to its detachable numpad. That offers the extra space afforded by a small form factor board, as well as the utility of a standard one.

As a newbie company Mountain has come into the crowded enthusiast keyboard market determined to make the best board around, and damned near pulled it off. The modular nature of the full Max setup, as well as the fact the Core version could be a pure barebones base for your own pick of switches and keycaps, meant it offered everything you could want from a modern gaming keyboard.

Well, not everything, because now every peripheral manufacturer who has ever considered shipping a keyboard is bending over backwards to pack a miniscule 60% board into their lineup. But now, so has Mountain, and it’s bringing its somewhat unique perspective to the tiny keeb market, too.

Mountain isn’t the first to create modular keyboards—Asus even made its own years back—but it’s the first to get it right. Offering a solid, secure fit for the modular components, as well as multiple mounting options, makes the whole setup actually useful and not just some marketing gimmick. On its own, though, the Everest 60 isn’t modular, but there is a dedicated numpad that can be purchased separately, and it’s hot-swappable. Crucially, for me, it will also attach to either side of the board.

If you’re still rocking a numpad on the right-hand side of your gaming keyboard then you’re just plain doing it wrong. The key benefit of a smaller keeb is that your mouse and WSAD hands are closer together, and switching the numpad to the left means you still get to use the extra buttons and the extra desktop real estate for your gaming rodent. 

And, hell, it’s also way more convenient when thrashing your way through a good spreadsheet, too. Those benchmark numbers don’t enter themselves, you know.

That extra mouse space is the main reason 60% boards can have a place in gaming, but, at least for me, the traditional lack of cursor keys makes them incredibly frustrating to use full-time. Mountain obviously thinks so, too, and has squeezed them into the right-hand side of the board, squishing down the right shift key and adding in a del key as well.

The tiny right shift key does take some getting used to, but the addition of the cursor keys makes a huge difference to the overall utility of the Everest 60. But that’s not the only reason I’ve fallen in love with the board, however: this thing just oozes quality.

Easily the best typing experience I’ve ever had… a real joy to use

The original Everest Max is reassuringly solid, and feels good to type on, especially after I swapped out all the original Cherry MX Red switches it shipped with and installed my own Halo True switches. But the Everest 60 feels sooo much better. It’s easily the best typing experience I’ve ever had, and is a real joy to use.

The base of the keyboard has a layer of silicone inside it, to add weight and dampen the sound, but then there are also two layers of foam, on either side of the PCB, to again improve the aural experience. Mountain has used genuine Cherry stabilisers on the board, too, but has made sure they’re fitted and lubed properly for the Everest 60 to ensure there’s no rattle on even the broad spacebar.

And I’m impressed with the Mountain mechanical keyboard switches the company is shipping inside the Everest 60 for the first time. Mountain is also selling them separately, in Tactile 55 (denoting the 55cN force needed for actuation), Linear 45, and Linear 45 Speed (which have a shorter travel and actuation point). I’ve been using the Tactile 55 in my sample, and they feel great. Really stable, responsive, and factory lubed so there’s none of the grittiness you can sometimes get from a tactile switch.

It’s been interesting testing the Everest 60 alongside the new Function MiniTKL from NZXT. They’re both trying to do similar things, striding into the crowded enthusiast keyboard space with new offerings, but it’s clear Mountain has learned a whole lot from its first release, while NZXT is falling down in a few key places that will surely be ironed out if its subsequent keebs.

The Everest 60 package isn’t completely perfect, however. The main thing that lets it down is—as always seems to be the case with peripherals—the software. It’s mostly fine. Mostly. But there are quirks, and the odd little bug I’ve experienced both in early review testing of the Everest 60, and in my time using the Base Camp software day-to-day with the Everest Max.

Thankfully, once you’ve set your preferred RGB lighting layout, and maybe picked a few macros, you can pretty much just ignore it and get on with enjoying the experience of an outstanding gaming keyboard.

The standard Everest 60 comes with PBT double shot black keycaps, and they’re absolutely fine, but I do have a soft spot for the Aquamarine set that’s now adorning this review sample. That’s just aesthetics, though, and you’ll still be getting the same great feel from the original keycaps.

All this good keeb stuff does come at a price, however. The Everest 60 is $140 (£110) on its own, while the hot swappable numpad is $50 (£35), making the whole package a lot. There are some bundles, packaging the two together, and ones that include the colourful new PBT keycap range, which can make it a bit cheaper. But not by much. 

I guess that’s enthusiast keyboards right now, and honestly, there is a feeling of quality to the design and manufacturing of every part of this package—the base, the switches, the numpad, the connections, the keycaps—that makes the pricing almost understandable. 

But the modular nature also means you don’t have to go for everything right away. Pick the base board, then grab a numpad some other time if you find it makes sense for you. And then later on maybe pick a mineral PBT keycap set, or some new switches if you feel the need for a change. Because if there’s one thing I’m confident of, this board will be with you for many, many years to come, it’s certainly earned a place on my desktop.

Asus ROG Azoth gaming keyboard review

When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn an affiliate commission. Here’s how it works.

By Dave James

Our Verdict

The ROG Azoth is easily Asus’ best ever gaming keyboard, and one of the best enthusiast boards I’ve used. But it’s over $100 more than the Mountain Everest 60’s full numpad package, and that’s at the very limits of what I could conscience spending on a peripheral.

For
  • Outstanding build quality
  • Great typing experience
  • Solid, speedy wireless
  • Useful OLED display
Against
  • How much?!
  • Damned Armoury Crate

PC Gamer’s got your back
Our experienced team dedicates many hours to every review, to really get to the heart of what matters most to you. Find out more about how we evaluate games and hardware.

The Asus ROG Azoth is the Taiwanese tech giant’s first real enthusiast gaming keyboard. And, honestly, it’s a doozy. That’s a technical term which translates as a quality keeb that ticks all the boxes, then draws in some more at the bottom of the list and ticks those off, too.

Asus is no stranger to mechanical keyboards. I’ve tested a bunch of its previous ROG mech boards, even its almost smart hybrid Claymore board which got ahead of Mountain in the detachable numpad game, but failed to make it stick. I mean, literally. The floppy attachment of the extra keypad was one of the reasons I hated it so much.

But it’s only really ever just dipped its toes into the enthusiast keyboard market. Well, the ROG Azoth is Asus going in with both feet, which is no real surprise given the burgeoning market for high-end custom keyboards.

Bizarrely, despite being in the midst of a global economic fustercluck of bordering apocalyptic proportions, there’s never been a better time to release a stupidly priced gaming keyboard because people are buying them. And when I say ‘stupidly priced’ I’m not messing around; this thing is the first $250 Asus keyboard I’ve ever seen. But that didn’t stop us from giving it the Best gaming keyboard of CES 2023 award, and doesn’t stop me from loving it.

ROG Azoth specs

(Image credit: Future)

Size: 75%
Base: Hot-swappable
Switches: ROG NX Linear|Tactile|Clicky
Backlighting: Per key
Display: 2-inch OLED
Anti-ghosting: N-key rollover
Polling rate: 1,000Hz
Dimensions: 326 x 136 x 40mm
Weight: 1,186g (w/out cable)
Connections: 2. 4GHz|USB Type-C|Bluetooth
Battery life: 130-hours (w/out lighting)
Price: $250 | £270

It is though offering everything you could possibly want from an enthusiast keeb. The build quality is absolutely exceptional and the weight of the Azoth is extreme. And I love it for that. It’s also been built with all the pre-lubed, gasketed, dampened trimmings you’ll want for that premium typing experience.

And premium it is. The Azoth is a delight to tap away on, even more so now that I’ve completely replaced all of the supplied ROG NX switches the board shipped with. Not that they’re bad at all, the custom linear mechanical switches are Cherry MX Red analogues, but do have a nice feel. No, it’s just that I’ve got a bunch of delightful Halo True switches that I bought to go into my Mountain Everest Max board. That board’s been retired in favour of the Everest 60, and I’ve left the Mountain Tactile switches in place.

That’s one of the must haves for any keyboard with enthusiast pretentions—hot swappable switches. Us keyboard nerds love needlessly replacing switches for an infinitesimal difference in feel that even the princess of pea fame would struggle to notice. And the Azoth happily caters for that, and with what I will say is my absolute favourite switch puller bundled into the package. Yes, I actually now have a favourite.

(Image credit: Future)

Maybe I should get out more?

But I’ve torn finger flesh on other pullers, and the bundled keycap-puller Asus supplies in the box is just as ergonomically effective, too. That’s not all, however, because the company has gone all-out to prove its enthusiast leanings. With lube.

It’s surprisingly easy, unsurprisingly tedious work.

Yes, lube is the new keeb enthusiast badge of honour. Of course good switches ought to come pre-lubed. Of course. But with the Azoth Asus provides a little doohickey that easily splits either the standard MX style of switch, or the new ROG NX switches, so that you can access the mechanism inside. Then, with the li’l jar o’ lube in the box, and the brush with which to apply it, you can lube up the necessary plastic for super smooth action.

It’s surprisingly easy, unsurprisingly tedious work, and you should absolutely never do it yourself.

All that enthusiast shiz aside, this is also a very effective gaming keyboard. It’s primarily wireless, offering both 2.4GHz and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as a USB Type-C wired connection for both power and data. And it’s also a small form factor board, though vitally not an ultra-restrictive 60%.

It’s listed as a 75% keyboard, so although it dispenses entirely with a numpad you do still get a full row of function keys across the top, Ins, Del, PgUp/Dn, and more importantly than all that you get cursor keys. It’s an inevitably larger board than the Mountain Everest 60, but that also means there’s more separation and no frustratingly small shift key. I hate the positioning of the Delete key personally, but that’s my only gripe with the layout itself.

ROG Azoth vs. Mountain 60 (Image credit: Future)

Peripherals software, it’s the worst.

Then you also get a two-tone OLED display in the top right hand corner, with a three-way switch that can be customised via the weakest part of the whole kit. 

As is its wont, the ROG Azoth relies on Asus’ horrible Armoury Crate software, and it just takes…so…damned…long…to do anything. Just switching between tabs in the app, or trying to check for firmware updates, oh it’s interminable. And sometimes it just doesn’t work at all—particularly when you switch from USB to Wi-Fi and vice versa—and the app will get stuck on a permanent loading animation, tanking all the tweaked profile settings you’ve saved into it, somehow completely resetting the device. Peripherals software, it’s the worst.

The frustrating thing is that once you’re in there it does actually offer some pretty handy knobs to tweak regarding the controls or the display. Aside from the requisite LED backlighting controls you’re also able to adjust the control knob to deliver exactly what you want it to do. As standard the control has five discrete modes, which you can cycle through via a button on the end of it, but in the app you can add a customisable sixth and that can be for practically anything. There are three ‘buttons’ on the switch (up, down, and a click) and each can open a website, an application, further multimedia, keyboard or mouse functions, or even some preset input text.

It’s pretty damned powerful.

I also like the fact that you can disable any modes you don’t want. I did have it showing off a host of system info, but I’ve got it currently set as a multimedia control only, so just with the volume adjustment and track play/pause/skip functionality. That means I don’t have to cycle back around to get to the mode I’m after. I’ve also got the OLED set to display the track info and EQ, though sometimes Armoury Crate craps out and either flips it back to the image of Princess Leia (no, not that one) I loaded to test out its custom image/gif chops many firmware updates ago.

The ROG Azoth is absolutely the best gaming keyboard Asus has ever released, and the best enthusiast keyboard I’ve ever seen from a proper established brand that doesn’t focus on the segment. The utility of the Everest 60 and its detachable numpad still gets my personal vote, but this is a very close second in terms of its day-to-day use. And it’s certainly going to be my new office board… though only if I can swing it with Asus to leave the expensive Azoth with us. Because the real sticking point is that price. 

I’d never spend $250 on a gaming keyboard, so I don’t really know how I can recommend that you do. I love it as a keeb in its own right, but unless that’s mere pocket money in your world, the cost of the ROG Azoth is beyond prohibitive.

Asus ROG Azoth

The ROG Azoth is easily Asus’ best ever gaming keyboard, and one of the best enthusiast boards I’ve used. But it’s over $100 more than the Mountain Everest 60’s full numpad package, and that’s at the very limits of what I could conscience spending on a peripheral.

Wireless keyboard and mouse set ⌨🖱: the best sets

Gaming keyboard and mouse sets have been on the market for a long time. Yes, not all users manage to find the perfect match for their preferences, but a wide selection of devices is still available. That is why we decided to create our own list, which includes models from Logitech, Razer and other companies.

It should be noted that most often when buying a keyboard, the selection criteria are limited to the switches used, special multimedia or gaming keys, including programmable ones, as well as their total number. On the other hand, a wireless mouse will feature Bluetooth technology, programmable buttons, comfort and design. However, when looking for a keyboard + mouse kit, you have to find a middle ground. That is why we advise you to look at the factors that you should pay attention to.

What to look out for?

Switches

The type of keyboard switches has the greatest impact on the life, performance, and personality of the device. There are three types of switches: membrane, scissor and mechanical. Membrane switches feature rubber or silicone pads, resulting in softer buttons that don’t even need to be pressed all the way down. However, they are not very durable due to the wear of the rubber over time. Scissor switches use rubber dome grommets, but a special plastic “scissor” mechanism is used to connect the keycap to the stem. These types of switches are mainly used in laptops.

The most relevant for gamers are mechanical switches. They are more sophisticated and of higher quality than all the others, since each key is equipped with its own switching mechanism, which is activated when the cover is pressed enough. In most cases, the key is activated approximately at the middle of the stroke length.

Programmable Hot Keys

If you’re an avid gamer, you’ve definitely used programmable keys more than once. Not only do they save time when accessing certain features, but they also improve usability and don’t require you to close another program. In addition, they display repetitive game tasks. There are also keyboards that have special multimedia keys and controls. Thus, you can control the sound in all your favorite multimedia programs at the same time.

RF and Bluetooth

Both types of wireless devices transmit 2.4 GHz signals, but the RF mouse uses a USB connection to transmit RF signals (instead of Bluetooth). The latter, however, requires a working Bluetooth connection on your device. The USB-based mouse is compatible with any computer that has the appropriate port.

Ergonomics and comfort

Of course, no one wants to experience carpal tunnel pain due to excessive use of peripherals. Thus, every user wants a user-friendly design from a mouse and keyboard. There are a number of highly ergonomic models that maintain comfort. You can choose a foldout keyboard with a dedicated sector on the left and right, or just use the standard keyboard layout that we’re all used to.

When it comes to mice, you have to choose between three different grip types: palm grip (most popular type), claw grip (for RTS players), fingertip grip (for extremely fast movements).

Optical Resolution

This is what controls the sensitivity of the mouse. Generally, a higher optical resolution of a wireless mouse means higher sensitivity. If you need a device for everyday tasks, then a higher resolution is not required. However, if you are a gamer, you will need a high optical resolution laser mouse.

Batteries

Even the best wireless mouse and keyboard have a certain amount of battery life. In most cases, these peripherals will use AA or AAA batteries, which are thankfully easy to replace.

Logitech MX900 Performance Combo

Logitech MX900 Performance Combo is probably the best keyboard and wireless mouse combo around. Not only are the devices comfortable, but the design is very elegant. The keys on the keyboard are concave, the letters and numbers on them are laser engraved and designed for long-term use. The overall design is simple and stylish, and you can easily swipe all day without getting tired.

The battery life of both devices is impressive – they are able to work for a week! The best part is that the kit is rechargeable and therefore does not need batteries (charging via micro USB cable). Speaking of the mouse, there are plenty of buttons that can be customized using Logitech software. This is especially handy for designers who use the mouse to complete their work. The wheel allows you to work flawlessly, and the hand does not get tired thanks to the comfortable design.

As for the keyboard, it doesn’t have mechanical switches, but it’s still good for gaming. Yes, we would not recommend it as a gaming device, but this combination works well in simple titles. The keyboard is backlit so you can use it in the dark without any problems. We highly recommend the Logitech MX900 Performance Combo to people who don’t like wires but don’t want to sacrifice quality. The wireless kit works flawlessly in good range so you can relax and work comfortably.

Razer Turret

Most gamers require portability which is why this kit is quite useful as the mouse pad is built into the keyboard. Razer has created a true gaming keyboard paired with a 3500 DPI touch mouse. In addition, the mouse works equally well for both left-handers and right-handers, however, the mouse pad is still focused on the latter.

In addition, the Razer Turret combo can work with both RF and Bluetooth, which is quite rare. As for the mat, it is magnetic and can be detached. However, some users complained about its size. The Razer model does not lag behind the Logitech MK800 in terms of battery life – if you use the device for a couple of hours a day, the keyboard will last about three weeks. The batteries are rechargeable, which is also good.

For video games, the Razer Turret uses state-of-the-art anti-ghosting technology, allowing up to 10 keys to be pressed simultaneously. The keyboard has a simplistic design, so it doesn’t have a lot of programmable hotkeys. Moreover, there is not even a digital block on the right (because of the rug).

Logitech MK235 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse

The Logitech MK235 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse delivers superior design and quality at a great price and is one of the best budget kits available on the market. Logitech makes many different products, and the MK235 combination is an example of the manufacturer’s available models. Of course, the kit is incomparable to others in terms of quality, but it has an excellent price and does not look cheap.

The keyboard does not have media keys or any indicators, but there is an Fn key. As many may know, this allows you to increase or decrease the volume, pause and play videos, forward and play the previous track, as well as a few other hotkeys. The mouse has an advanced optical tracking sensor that is quite accurate for the price. The ergonomics are great and the design makes it suitable for both left and right handers. It has two standard buttons and a scroll wheel.

The keyboard has a water resistant design and the kit generally boasts good battery life compared to many other models on the market. The Bluetooth connection range is up to 10 meters, so you can easily relax while sitting on the couch.

Logitech MK710 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo

If you need a keyboard and mouse to work, the more comfortable the devices, the better your productivity. The Logitech MK710 Wireless Combo has the best ergonomics and is also in the affordable price range. The main advantage of the Logitech MK710 keyboard is the palm rest: it is soft and comfortable, so you can work with the device for a long time.

The keys have a concave design and the ergonomics of the keyboard are amazing. In addition, this key design and comfortable palm rest are aimed at providing maximum comfort to the user. The mouse is also comfortable and fits easily in the palm of your hand. The sensor on the mouse is laser, not exactly the best on the market, but the tracking is really good. The keys are positioned according to the palm of your hand, so you don’t have to exert much pressure when pressing. Super fast scrolling makes it easy to browse the web and get the information you need.

The MK710 Wireless Combo also features an LCD panel that lets you know if the Num, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock blocks are active, and there’s also a battery life gauge so you can always know the battery charge. It is worth mentioning the multimedia keys for quickly switching music or pausing it. Logitech claims the battery can last up to 3 years under normal operating conditions.

RII RKM709

Although a very obscure company, Rii products have received good customer reviews from the very beginning. The model is great for users who have limited space on their desktop, and finding such a compact keyboard and mouse combination is quite difficult – at least among products with high ratings. Even at this low price, the devices have highly reliable wireless connectivity, excellent build quality, and even a wide range of compatible devices.

Buy

LOGITECH MK750

When we said that Logitech releases absolutely any type of device, we were not joking! Logitech MK750 solar powered keyboard kit! Although the device is only officially compatible with Windows, Mac users can also use it without any problems. The mouse runs on conventional batteries, but they can last for several years.

    Take Our Advice

    How to Stay Safe

    Security cameras are great tools, but you also need to protect your security from those cameras. You don’t want to find out that a stranger has been watching you sit in your bathrobe bingeing trash TV for the third day in a row, or worse. If you follow these tips, you can be a vigilant and conscious consumer and still feel like your home is protected while you’re away.

    • Avoid no-name cameras: If you type “security camera” into Amazon’s search bar, you’ll come up with hundreds of cheap options from brands you’ve never heard of. We don’t feel comfortable recommending those. You should always go with brands that clearly outline their privacy policies and make it easy to set up security protocols. That doesn’t mean they can’t be hacked—Wyze, Nest, and Ring have all had breaches—but you probably won’t be hung out to dry by a brand intent on protecting its reputation. Somewhat counterintuitively, it may be better to pick a brand that has had issues, because the increased scrutiny typically encourages them to improve their security practices. (This also depends on how they have responded to previous security breaches.)
    • Use a strong password and set up two-factor authentication: Setting a strong password you don’t use for anything else is extremely important. You should also change the password for your Wi-Fi network from its default if you haven’t already. Set up two-factor authentication as soon as you create an account with the camera brand you’ve bought. It will make it harder for a hacker to gain access to your device, even if they do figure out your password.
    • Keep it updated: Make sure you’re frequently checking for software updates (for your camera and router) that can patch any security issues that may have come up. Set your camera to auto-update if possible.
    • Turn it off: When you’re home, or at least when you’re doing something personal you wouldn’t want someone to see, turn the camera off. Some cameras have a physical shutter that you can close. You could also turn the camera around for good measure.

    Best for Most

    Cync Indoor Smart Camera

    I prefer cameras that pan (see many choices below), but this one from Cync (9/10, WIRED Recommends) beats out everything else with one important feature: a shutter that covers the camera lens when you don’t want it watching—or listening!—to you. Plus, the app has two-factor authentication, and you can’t opt out of it. That’s a good thing.

    Live video feed is pretty sensitive information, so if you’re going to invite a camera into your home, it’s wise to take some precautions. You can turn your cameras around, turn them off, or unplug them, but the shutter here makes it easier. Slide the shutter up when you’re home and you see bright red plastic and a crossed-out camera symbol, and the lens sees nothing. Ready for it to monitor? Slide it back down. This Cync (formerly C by GE ) camera is affordable, captures 1080p video, and offers two-way audio. The app is easy to use, so you don’t have to be a tech wizard to figure it out. To get more than a live view, you’ll need a MicroSD card, or sign up for a cloud subscription (from $3 per month).

    Another Great Camera

    Arlo Essential Indoor Security Camera

    With a compact design, clear video, and two-way audio, this camera from Arlo matches our top pick on features and performs reliably well. It can sit on a shelf or be wall-mounted, it has a privacy shutter that comes down when the camera is not in use, and it stores video in the cloud.

    It’s relatively expensive, and cloud storage requires a subscription (starting from $5 per month), but the accurate subject detection and smart alerts it unlocks are top-notch. I’m also a big fan of the app for its ease of use, loading speeds, and two-factor authentication that enables you to log in to the live feed with your fingerprint or face scan (phone permitting). There’s also a built-in siren and robust smart home integration for Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, Samsung SmartThings, and IFTTT. For folks with video doorbells or other cameras from Arlo, this camera is an obvious pick to keep things in a single app. But the lack of local storage might be a turnoff.

    Best Panning Camera

    Wyze Cam Pan V3

    The latest panning camera from Wyze replaces the Cam Pan V2 (our previous pick here), bringing 180-degree tilt so it can scan a room up and down, IP65 weather resistance, and a new privacy mode. The refreshed design is two blocks with a hinge between them, enabling the enhanced tilt and privacy mode, where the lens faces down. The Wyze Cam Pan V3 can spin 360 degrees, and you can set up to four waypoints in the app to have it cycle through. The automatic motion tracking worked well in my testing, and I love that the camera returns to your chosen view. It’s much quieter than the previous version when moving. The video quality is decent (1080p at 20 frames-per-second), and night vision is solid, though the frame rate drops to 15. There is two-way audio, but the sound quality is poor.

    The basic plan only gets you snapshot alerts, but you can record locally by inserting a microSD card (up to 256 GB). If you want cloud storage with person, package, vehicle, and pet detection, you can subscribe to Cam Plus for $2 a month. Wyze has optional home monitoring for just $10 a month if you want to upgrade your system with more cameras and sensors. That’s a fraction of what other services cost. Wyze also works in conjunction with the Noonlight app, which you can read more about in our Best Personal Safety Tech guide.

    Note: You cannot use Cam Plus Lite (free 14-day cloud storage) with this camera, but you can still buy the Wyze Cam Pan V2 ($50) if that’s something you want.

    Smartest Security Camera

    Google Nest Cam (Wired, Indoor)

    With an understated style, Google’s indoor Nest Cam comes in a few elegant finishes (including one with a maple wood base) to help it blend in with your decor. It has HDR, the 1080p video quality is clear, and night vision kicks on automatically when the lights are out. There’s also two-way audio, enforced two-factor authentication, and accurate detection to alert you about people, animals, or vehicles. You can install and use the Nest Cam through the Google Home app, and it’s quick to load on Nest displays or a Chromecast with Google TV. (It’s even now accessible via a web interface.)

    You only get three hours of history unless you sign up for a Nest Aware subscription, which starts at $6 per month for 30 days of event video history and familiar face alerts. Once you have tagged familiar faces, your notifications include their names, which is handy (and can be reassuring). It’s good to know when your kids get home versus when an unfamiliar face pops up. It’s not 100 percent accurate, but it’s closer than any other camera I have tested. Sadly, there’s no local storage option, and the thing that really sets it apart (familiar faces) requires a relatively expensive subscription. It also lacks a privacy shutter. Try not to buy it at full price, as it’s frequently on sale.

    Best MicroSD Cards

    Security Camera Storage

    Many security cameras support local storage, enabling you to record videos on the camera or a linked hub. A few hubs have built-in storage, and some provide slots for hard drives, but most rely on MicroSD cards. Here are some details on what to look for (and a few recommendations).

    The MicroSD card you choose should have fast read and write speeds so that you can record high-quality video and play it back without delay. We recommend going for Class 10 MicroSD cards rated as U1 or U3. You can dive deeper into what that means in our SD card explainer. Before buying, check the card type, format, and maximum supported card size for your security camera. Consider how many hours of video each card capacity can store. For example, you might get a couple of days of HD video on a 32-GB card. If you want to record continuously, you likely want a higher-capacity card.

    We recommend formatting the card as soon as you insert it into the camera. You will usually be prompted to do this, but if not, there is generally an option in the settings. Just remember, formatting will wipe anything on the MicroSD card, so back up the contents first.

    Some security camera manufacturers, like Wyze, offer their own branded MicroSD cards. They work just fine in my experience, but for maximum reliability, here are my favorites. Always remember to check the specs. Even different sizes of cards in the same range often have different capabilities.

    • Samsung PRO Endurance MicroSDXC (128 GB) for $21
    • SanDisk High Endurance Video microSDXC Card (256 GB) for $27
    • PNY Elite-X microSDXC Card (64 GB) for $20

    Honorable Mentions and Competition

    Other Security Cameras

    There are a lot of security cameras out there. Here are others we tried that didn’t earn a top spot.

    • Nooie 360 Cam 2 for $70: We liked the original Nooie 360 Cam. This version sports a similar design, allowing for almost 360-degree rotation and 94-degree tilt, and bumps the video resolution up to 2K. It takes microSD cards (up to 128 GB) and cloud plans start from $1 per month for 7-day event recording. Unfortunately, alerts are not reliable (sometimes they didn’t come through to my phone). The Nooie app is buggy, and often took a frustratingly long time to load the video feed. Any motion triggers a recording (there’s no person or pet detection) and you can set the camera to track a subject or pan and tilt manually, but annoyingly, it doesn’t return to a default position. There is 2FA, but it’s optional.
    • Panasonic Home Hawk Window for $150: This camera sticks to the inside of a window, so you can keep an eye on the outside of your house without mounting anything—a huge plus if you’re renting. The image quality is surprisingly clear, it has a decent 150-degree wide-angle view, and you can set detection to just people to avoid notifications for every car that drives past or bird that pops up. But, it’s pricey, there’s no 2FA, and there’s no cloud storage, so you’ll need a microSD card to view anything outside of a livestream.
    • Ezviz C6 2K+ for $100: A cute design, crisp and clear video, and onboard AI and storage make this a compelling prospect. I like that the 2FA allows fingerprint unlock, it has a privacy mode, and it gives you the option to have gestures trigger a call. But the C6 struggled in mixed lighting, repeatedly identified my cat as a human intruder, and must be positioned low for the best view.
    • SwitchBot Indoor Camera for $30 and Pan/Tilt Cam for $40: These cameras are affordable and offer clear video, but both struggled with exposure in mixed lighting. The app is a little flaky and crashed on me when I tried to play back video from an inserted microSD card, and there’s no 2FA. If you enable motion tracking, the pan cam also has the unfortunate habit of staying in the last position it tracked movement.
    • Wyze Cam V3 for $30: While it offers good-quality video and works well on the whole, a price rise and limitations on the free service make this far less of a bargain than it used to be. It does boast local or cloud recordings, 2FA, and a choice of smart-home integrations. But this is one of the cameras that had a major security flaw that Wyze failed to fix for several years.
    • Blink Mini for $35: Compact, versatile, and cheap, the Blink Mini offers good quality video, two-way audio, accurate motion detection, activity zones, and integration with Alexa. It worked reliably well in my testing, the problem is that you need a subscription (from $3 per month), and it detects any motion (it can’t distinguish between pets and people).
    • Kami Indoor Camera for $60: This camera is very similar to the panning cameras we recommend above. It has location bookmarks, like the front door and living room windows, so you can get the camera’s focus back to that exact spot without having to fuss with the controls. Unfortunately, this camera doesn’t have two-factor authentication, though you can set a pin separate from your password to view the live feed. (If you sign in using Facebook, you can use two-factor authentication, but Facebook has its own security issues.) It also isn’t as widely available as other cameras.
    • Ezviz C1C for $30 and C6CN for $80: Ezviz’s cameras are as affordable as Wyze. The app has a really nice grid view, so you can easily watch a live feed of all your cameras, but there’s a small delay when detecting motion—I set up the C6CN panning camera in my living room, and it didn’t start recording until I made it from the door to the other side of the room. It always detected motion accurately, but the delay might be an issue if you’re dealing with an intruder.
    • TP-Link Kasa Spot for $23: I tried the Spot and the Spot Pan Tilt ($30), and both are impressive and inexpensive offerings from TP-Link. They have a wide field of view and decent motion detection that alerts you instantly. These cameras lacked two-factor authentication when we tested them, but the company has since added the feature to the Kasa app.
    • Homam Camera ($400): I wanted to love this camera despite its high price. It looks like an adorable eye, and it comes with sassy stickers (“Homam is shooting a video here. Act naturally and don’t look at the lens”). Plus, it has 64 GB of storage, and the company says video is internally encrypted—no cloud to hack here. Unfortunately, its live view is extremely delayed, and it rarely sent motion notifications even in Nanny mode, which is supposed to trigger notifications at the slightest movement.

    DIY It

    Use an Old Smartphone

    You don’t need to spend money on a new security camera—an old smartphone will do as long as it can still connect to Wi-Fi. Just download a camera app (we like Alfred) to both your old phone and your new phone, then sign in with the same email address. Find a spot to mount your device and keep it charged, and you’ll be able to view the camera feed through your current phone.

    The field of view won’t be as wide, the battery won’t last as long, and the mount will probably be a lot less secure. Still, if you’re going on a weekend vacation, it’s a quick and easy way to set up something essentially for free. Alfred is available for iOS and Android. It offers motion detection and can set off an alarm when it detects someone.

    What About Ring?

    Why We Don’t Recommend It

    Amazon’s Ring system has a wide selection of cameras and doorbells. They’re easy to install, work well, are reasonably priced, and are integrated with Alexa. But we’re not comfortable recommending Ring cameras, for a number of reasons. Amazon employees have snooped on Ring feeds; Ring also partners with law enforcement in a more thorough and less transparent way than other companies. There have also been a significant number of hacks.

    Wyze and Nest have suffered hacks as well, and Eufy’s recent glitch brought up a number of other privacy concerns. We put all the companies we recommend under the same scrutiny. We’ll continue to monitor Ring, and we may change our recommendation in the future.

    What About Eufy Security?

    Why We Don’t Recommend Eufy Security

    We recommended several Eufy Security cameras in the past, but it recently emerged that camera systems sold with the promise of local data storage were, in fact, uploading images to the cloud, as demonstrated by security researcher Paul Moore. Further, it proved possible to stream video from a Eufy camera without encryption through the cloud, as reported by The Verge. Considering this, on top of the software bug in May 2021 that exposed Eufy users’ camera feeds to other users, even giving them full control of the pan and zoom functions, we decided to stop recommending Eufy cameras for the time being.

    Eufy’s parent company, Anker, has responded to our queries, admitting that most of the allegations are true. It claims to have fixed these issues, changing the language around its push notifications (which send images to the cloud for alerts), ensuring end-to-end encryption through the web portal (as well as the mobile app), and removing the need to upload a user’s face photo for setup. The company insists that video streams are, and always have been, encrypted with a dynamic key. Anker is promising a full risk assessment with penetration testing, an independent review of its current security and privacy systems and practices, and a new security bounty program to encourage researchers to find vulnerabilities. It has also officially engaged PWC and TrustARC to conduct a comprehensive security assessment.

    These are all positive steps, but we are still concerned about the company’s initial denials. We will continue to monitor the situation and await the results of independent audits before we start recommending Eufy cameras again.

The Best Indoor Home Security Cameras of 2023

Indoor security cameras play a big role in home security. They keep watch of the most intimate part of your house, the indoors, keeping you, your family, and your valuable possessions safe and secure.

A good indoor camera functions more than just a virtual eye, however. For example, having two-way audio enables you to communicate with your loved ones when you’re away. Also, we often use a security camera to communicate with our pets when we’re out during the day.

Finally, a good indoor camera must have features like night vision, a wide viewing angle, motion detection, and one of the most important of all, good video resolution.

We compiled a wide range of indoor home security camera options in the reviews below. Read on to learn about the best indoor security cameras for your priorities and budget.

Detailed List of the Best Indoor Home Security Cameras

  • 1.

    Lorex – Indoor Camera With the Most Options

    If you’re serious about security cameras, you can’t do better than investing in Lorex products. Lorex makes commercial-grade equipment but at prices that make it affordable for outfitting home security systems as well. The company has recently begun offering a full range of security system devices, including door sensors and motion detection sensors, but Lorex began as a security camera company and that’s where its focus remains. Lorex doesn’t offer any security system packages, and it doesn’t offer monitoring services. In short, Lorex knows cameras better than any other company out there because it only does cameras.

    Lorex Camera

    Lorex offers plenty of camera choices, which means it’s easy to find exactly the right device for your particular situation. The company offers over 50 different kinds of analog cameras alone. In addition, Lorex manufactures digital, Wi-Fi, and even wire-free cameras. In terms of style, you can purchase bullet cameras, dome cameras, pan-and-tilt cameras, video doorbell cameras, even cameras that come with floodlights. All of these have the look and feel of profession-grade equipment, with metal finishes in black or white.

    All of Lorex’s cameras come with minimum 1080p HD image quality, and some, such as the 4KMPX44, have resolution up to 4K. In addition, all models include Alexa and Google Home compatibility as well as night vision and person detection. Of course, with so many different cameras to choose from, it’s impossible to list all the different feature options. Here’s what we got, though, when we tested Lorex’s lowest-priced option, a 2K Indoor Wi-Fi camera, model W461ASC-E.

    • 2K resolution
    • 125 degree field of view
    • Camera head capable of bending 90 degrees
    • Two-way audio
    • Night vision up to 32 feet
    • Person detection
    • Push notifications through the Lorex app
    • Google Home and Alexa integration
    • Up to 16 GB of onboard storage
    • SD card slot for up to 256 GB of additional storage
    • Magnetic base

    As you might expect, with so many choices, Lorex cameras come with a wide-range of pricetags. Lorex’s price for a single 2K Indoor Wi-Fi, for example, is just $49.99 In line with its commercial focus, though, Lorex also offers whole camera systems. A set of four 4K motorized varifocal smart IP dome cameras is $949. Keep in mind that you’ll only be paying a one-time equipment cost. Lorex doesn’t offer monitoring, so there are no monthly fees. Of course, if you’re looking for monitoring, you can sign up with another security system and add what Lorex cameras you need. They’re compatible with essentially any system out there.

  • 2. Wyze Cam – Most Affordable Indoor Camera

    Wyze caught our eyes as the most affordable indoor camera brand for DIY home security. The company slogan “Making Great Technology Accessible” was best exemplified with the Wyze Cam V2, a mere $36 buy.

    Although affordable and not very stylish, the Wyze Cam v3 is a hardy camera. It is IP 65 weather-resistant, so even if you accidentally spill juice on it, it’ll still be functional.

    It also packs quite a punch in terms of features, especially for a camera that cheap. It has person detection, it can record both locally and to the cloud, it has powerful night vision, and it even has a mini siren.

    Other features of the Wyze Cam v2 include:

    • Plugs in with 6-ft cord
    • 1080p resolution
    • 110° field of view
    • 8x zoom on livestream
    • Infrared night vision
    • Two-way audio
    • Motion detection zones
    • Motion and sound-triggered footage saved free to cloud for 14 days
    • Smart sound alerts send smoke/CO warnings to your phone
    • Compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant
    • Works with IFTTT
    • MicroSD card slot for continuous recording to local storage

    One point of concern about the Wyze Cam v3 is the narrow field of view. 110 degrees covers a minimal area compared to the industry standard 130 degrees. That said, if you want a broader coverage from one security camera, Wyze offers another option: The Wyze Cam Pan v3. This camera rotates sideways, up, and down mechanically, and can even rotate on its own to patrol its surroundings. Plus, at just $33.99, it’s just as affordable as the Wyze Cam v3.

    Wyze Indoor Camera

    Any compromises? Cloud storage with Wyze was inadequate for our needs, as the cameras were limited to recording one clip every five minutes. Also, the free clips are under 15 seconds long. Granted, this same technology worked for others we knew.  A better option with Wyze was to use a memory card for continuous video recording saved to local storage. Another drawback was that the infrared video wasn’t so crisp; the brands above had more impressive night vision.

    Again though, Wyze was exceptionally affordable. We even integrated a Wyze camera with basic security sensors for a mini DIY home security set. The Wyze Sense kit provided two entry sensors, one indoor motion sensor, and a camera connection for just $20. If a sensor was triggered, the camera started to record.

  • 3. Ring – Best Indoor Cam With DIY Installation

    Editors Rating:

    9.5 /10

    View on Amazon

    Ring was best known for smart video doorbells and other home security cameras that worked with smartphone apps. Acquired by Amazon in 2018, Ring also made complete smart home security systems for DIY or low-priced professional monitoring. We used a Ring indoor camera on its own or connected it to a multi-part Ring Alarm system. If motion was detected we received a push alert and viewed the action live via our smartphones or Amazon Echo Show. The Ring mobile app also let us check-in anytime via livestream, so if we were worried about our older children home alone after school, we could ease our fears.

    We could also use the Ring Neighbors app to get alerts from our neighbors and or share footage with sections of the neighborhood as part of neighborhood watch efforts.

    We focused on Ring’s cordless Stick Up Cam Battery with a $99 MSRP. It was our nominee for the best indoor home security camera overall. One reason it received this title was literally in its name: the Stick Up Cam Battery was battery-powered! This made it more flexible in terms of placement options compared with other top-rated security cameras that required AC or USB outlets.

    Ring Stickup Cam Wired

    We had a choice of black or white camera housing to help it fit with our home decor. For ultra-quick setup, we simply set the camera on a shelf or table. It stood up with a magnetically attached base. We also had the option to attach the base to a horizontal surface, wall, or ceiling using the one to three screws included in our product package.

    Features of the Stick Up Cam Battery included:

    • 1080p resolution
    • 130-degree viewing field
    • Rechargeable battery
    • USB cord for an alternative power source
    • Two-way audio with noise cancellation
    • Night vision up to 30 feet
    • Motion detection
    • Privacy zones (Can exclude parts of the viewing field)
    • 110 db siren
    • Alexa and IFTTT compatible
    • No hub required

    It was an impressive specs list for DIY video surveillance. In addition to DIY, we also subscribed to Ring’s professional security monitoring service for just $10 per month or $100 per year contract-free. Ring also made entry sensors, indoor motion sensors, and other components. Their hub’s Z-Wave compatibility gave us  infinite options for home automation to enhance home security and/or streamline everyday life with Alexa commands for remote-controlled locks, appliances, and much more. If an entry sensor or other part of the security system was tripped, Stick Up Cams started recording automatically and a Ring emergency dispatcher took action.

    While we called it the best indoor camera, we liked that Stick Up Cams worked as outdoor cameras as well. After all, Stick Up Cams are weatherproof and work from -5° to 122° F.

    We purchased this versatile home security camera for $99.99 with shipping included, and maintenance costs were minimal since

    1. Our included battery was rechargeable.
    2. We got motion-triggered alerts and livestreamed on our smartphone for free.
    3. We stored motion-triggered clips to the cloud for only $3 per month or $30 per year if we paid annually. This allowed us to keep each video clip for up to 60 days.

    Ring Stick Up Cams carried a 30-day money-back guarantee and were under warranty for one year from the date of purchase.

    FYI: Ring also sells an even more affordable indoor-only camera. The Ring Indoor Cam costs $59.99. It has a slightly smaller form factor as the Ring Stick Up Cam, but it’s powerful nonetheless.

  • 4. Nest – Best Wired Indoor Cam

    Editors Rating:

    9.2 /10

    View on Amazon

    While Amazon’s Ring features the best battery-powered camera, Google Nest offered the best wired or plug-in indoor security camera that worked over Wi-Fi. It’s called the Nest Cam IQ Indoor and had a MSRP of $299. Also available was the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor for the same price. Of course, this was also triple the price of a Ring Stick Up Cam. So, if it was so expensive, what was its big appeal? Keep reading to find out.

    First, the “IQ” in Nest Cam IQ cameras referred to familiar face recognition. This made security alerts smarter than ever, and we could eliminate alerts about people we trusted. We also enjoyed using facial recognition to notify us when a familiar person arrived home.

    Another big selling point with Google Nest IQ was its continuous recording. This contrasted with most other home security cameras that only record motion-triggered events. The Nest mobile app made it easy to filter all the data and find the clips we needed.

    Nest Cam

    We also made familiar face recognition and continuous video recording possible through our subscription to Nest Aware, which started at $5 per month.

    Installing our Nest Cam (indoor) camera was easy. After connecting it wirelessly to our home Wi-Fi, we simply set the camera on a bookshelf or other flat horizontal surface. It stood on a magnetic base. For wall or ceiling mounting we would have attached the base with screws.

    Nest Cam features include:

    • Plug-in power with battery backup
    • 1080p resolution
    • 130-degree field of view
    • 180° swivel, 160° tilt
    • Activity zones
    • Familiar face recognition
    • Two-way audio with echo suppression, noise cancellation
    • Night vision approximately 20 feet
    • Google Assistant and IFTTT compatible

    We purchased it directly from the Google store,  it was under warranty for two years.

  • 5. Arlo – Best Wireless Indoor Security Camera

    Arlo had the best wireless indoor security cameras made for DIY surveillance. The brand was popular for its high-quality equipment and free options for video storage. Around the time of our review, Arlo upgraded to an optional e911 service to accompany smartphone alerts.

    Cameras by Arlo shared many features with the Ring and Nest cameras above: 1080p resolution, night vision, two-way audio, activity zones, voice assistant compatibility, and so forth. One special Arlo camera feature we liked that most competitors lacked was sound-triggered recording. This gave it an edge over only motion-triggered recording, as Arlo often started recording before anyone appeared on screen.

    Free video storage with Arlo took two forms: some Arlo cameras had card slots for local video storage, and all cameras had free cloud storage for motion-triggered clips. Arlo’s free cloud storage let us keep each clip for up to seven days. Paid plans from $2.99 to $14.99 per month extended video storage options, activated continuous recording and added other camera features, like e911 service to our account.

    Choosing a favorite Arlo indoor camera wasn’t easy; they were all impressive. Here, we focused on Arlo Q Plus, which had a $149 MSRP. It was also a great option for DIY video surveillance, and didn’t require us to have a smart home hub. It directly connected with our home Wi-Fi network and worked up to 220 feet away from the router. Ethernet was an option too; an adapter was built-in. The camera was powered via a USB cable, and we had the option to store video in the cloud or locally (data card not included).

    Arlo Ultra 4K Camera

    Arlo Q Plus features included:

    • 1080p resolution
    • 130° field of view
    • Motion zones
    • Familiar face recognition
    • Night vision
    • Sound-triggered recordings
    • Two-way audio
    • Compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant
    • Works with IFTTT
    • Local storage (data card not included)
    • Free cloud storage

    Installing the camera took about 10 minutes. We connected to an app, attached the camera base to a flat surface, and snapped the camera into place.

  • 6. Canary – Best Smart Indoor Security Camera

    The smart home company Canary makes two indoor security cameras: the Canary Pro, formerly called the Canary All-In-One, and the Canary View, the less expensive option. Both cameras offer:

    • 1080p HD video
    • The ability to zoom in three times
    • 147 degree fields of view
    • Impressive infrared night vision
    • Two-way audio with the Canary Premium Service ($9.99 a month or $99 a year)
    • Local storage with the Premium service
    • 24 hours of free cloud storage or 30 days with Premium Service
    • Person detection with the Premium Service
    • Integrations with Alexa and Google Assistant.

    Canary View

    The Canary Pro also boasts a 90-decibel siren as well as climate monitoring, if you want to see what temperature or how humid it is in your basement before you go downstairs. Of course, Canary is more worthwhile if you buy the Premium Service, as you can see above; read more about Canary camera pricing here.

    Now, let’s talk about those smart home integrations. With Canary’s indoor cameras, it doesn’t matter if you’re in the Amazon or Google smart home ecosystems, as they work with both Alexa and Google Assistant. Here’s what you can do with each, hands-free:

    Alexa
    • See your Canary footage on your Echo Show or Fire TV.
    • Stop your camera from streaming.
    Google Assistant
    • Speak through two-way audio.
    • Ask for the temperature or humidity level, if you’re using the Canary Pro.
    • Ask for the battery level.
    • Ask Canary who is in your home.

    Better yet, you can pair your Canary indoor cameras with a Canary security system, making it a one-stop shop for indoor home security.

  • 7. Blink Indoor Camera – Easiest to Use Indoor Camera

    Editors Rating:

    8.4 /10

    View on Amazon

    Blink home security cameras were cordless, low cost, and low maintenance. We nominated them as Easiest to Use partly for their convenient wireless setup and long-lasting batteries: Blink cameras often served for two years before the AA lithium batteries needed replacing. Alexa helped make camera operation easy, too. The cameras sold for under $100 and included free cloud storage for two hours, rolling or motion-triggered video clips. The cameras connected to home Wi-Fi with the Blink Sync Module, a gadget that handled up to ten cams. Amazon sold the module with one Blink camera for just $79.99.

    Of all Blink cameras, the second generation Blink X2 Outdoor/Indoor Security Camera was the most advanced for indoor use. This $99.99 camera had an IP65 enclosure, which made it safe for outdoor use as well. Features included:

    • Long-lasting battery power
    • 1080p resolution
    • 110-degree field of view
    • Infrared night vision
    • Motion detection
    • Customizable motion zones
    • Two-way voice communication
    • Temperature sensor
    • Compatible with Amazon Alexa
    • Weatherproof against dust and rain
    • Free cloud storage

    We armed and disarmed the Blink X2 by voice with an Amazon Echo speaker, and Alexa sent video to Amazon Echo screens.

    Blink Indoor Cam

    Amazon, which owned Blink, temporarily halted sales of the premium Blink XT2 camera shortly after it launched. The Blink XT2, now for sale, was an upgrade over the glitchy first-generation product. Now, the main drawback was that cloud storage was limited to two hours of clips. This made Blink most appropriate for those of us who could check security alerts pretty quickly. If we delayed a few hours, any incriminating video might already be replaced by new clips! With the free Blink Home Monitor mobile app, we checked our live view anytime we wanted.

We all agreed. The foundation of determining any smart security camera’s value was our necessary features test, which was primarily how we picked out the best indoor cameras of 2023 . After we researched and tested tens of indoor cameras, these five came out on top, with superior audio, video, night vision, and more.

Pricing Rundown of 2023’s Best Indoor Cameras

Camera Price
Nest Cam IQ Indoor $299
Nest Cam Indoor $199
Canary Pro $169
Canary View $99
Tend Indoor 2 $60
Ring Indoor Cam $60
Wyze Cam Pan $30

We were surprised by the large price range for the best indoor cameras of 2023. Reaching from only $30 to nearly $300, costs averaged around $130. But we didn’t pick out our favorite cameras based price alone, although it was undoubtedly a factor. To see more options, be sure to check out the best home security cameras of 2023 as well.

Methodology Behind Our List of the Best Indoor Cameras of 2023

Nest Cam IQ Indoor

When it came to shopping for an indoor security camera, we deferred to our necessary features test. It set standards for video, audio, night vision, storage, smart platform integrations, artificial intelligence and more. Not every camera needed to have every solitary necessary feature to be worth buying. The following list is not exhaustive, but provides a comprehensive overview of what we looked for when selecting our choices for best indoor camera and a starting point for assessing other indoor cameras of interest.

  • Video: We searched for indoor cameras with 1080p HD display, optical zoom, and a wide field of view (120 degrees at minimum).
  • Audio: We preferred indoor cameras that came with built-in speakers and microphones, allowing for two-way talk with whoever we were recording.
  • Night Vision: While both color and infrared night vision were available in indoor cameras, we looked for cameras equipped with infrared night visions, as they provide the clearest image in the dark.
  • Equipment Cost: We primarily selected cameras that costed us less than $200. If a camera we chose was priced higher, it usually included innovative features that made it stand out.
  • Storage: Indoor cameras that offered both local and cloud storage were a priority for us, as were cameras that offered free storage. We liked cameras that had card slots, which allowed for free local video storage, and searched for cameras made by companies that provided options like free seven day cloud storage. Of course, even several hours of free storage was preferable to none. As for paid cloud storage, we looked for plans that offered 30 to 60 days of storage for less than $10 per month, but favored plans like Ring’s, which charged us only $3 per month. We also saw a lot of value in options that allowed us to save money by paying annually.
  • Installation: We prefer indoor cameras with DIY installation, as it saved us in cost, and many companies created easy-to-install hardware with frequent customer installation in mind. However, we really liked cameras that offered both DIY installation and an option for professional installation at a fee of less than $15o.
  • Smart Integrations: We tried to find indoor cameras that integrated smart assistants such as Alexa or Google Voice.
  • Artificial Intelligence: We liked indoor cameras that had person detection. With person detection, we were notified when someone was in our home. As a result of this artificial intelligence, our phones didn’t receive countless notifications while our cat were playing around. We only received alerts for people because cameras with this technology could discern between pets, people and other objects. Ideally, we were interested in indoor cameras with facial recognition, so we knew when someone familiar was in our home rather than a stranger. However, this was a newer quality in artificial intelligence, so it wasn’t as common as we’d have liked.
  • Durability: Fortunately, since we were looking at indoor cameras, we didn’t need to worry about durability and susceptibility to solids and liquids like with outdoor cameras, as they weren’t going to get rained on or face heavy winds that were filled with dust particles.
  • Power Source:  For wired cameras, we wanted to make sure the cord was long enough to reach where we intended to place the camera. For wireless cameras, we cared most about battery life and preferred cameras with batteries that last more than six months without needing replacements.
  • Appearance: We also cared about our camera’s overall aesthetics. We weren’t worried about it appearing decorative, but we didn’t want it looking very bulky or unattractive either. We applied these standards to camera cords as well.
  • Monitoring: Cameras associated with companies that allowed both self and professional monitoring were highly desirable. We wanted to know the cameras we selected offered good deals on both types of monitoring. Obviously, we wanted indoor cameras with motion detection, especially for when we were all away. We also looked for cameras that offered both with motion-triggered and continuous recording as well as the option to set up activity zones and sent us mobile notifications as a result of motion or sound and allowed us to livestream our footage whenever we wanted.
  • Mobile Application: Once we decided we liked what an indoor camera had to offer, we also did some research on its mobile app. We wanted to know that it was available in Apple and/or Google Play stores, depending on the types of phones we had. We also made sure the app had high ratings and wasn’t frequently the subject of serious complaints.

FAQs About Indoor Cameras

  • What are the best indoor security cameras?

    We recommend the Nest Cam IQ Indoor, the Ring Indoor Cam, the Canary Pro, the Canary View, the Tend Indoor 2, the Nest Cam Indoor, and the Wyze Cam Pan as the best indoor security camera.

  • What is the best indoor wireless security camera?

    The best indoor wireless security camera is the eufyCam E, which can also be used outdoors.

  • Do we need Wi-Fi for home security cameras?

    Some home security cameras require Wi-Fi, while others can use cellular data. On the other hand, we’ve seen some security cameras that don’t connect to the Internet at all, not allowing for livestreaming, notifications, or remote control.

  • What is the best cheap home security camera?

    The best cheap home security camera is the Wyze Cam, which sells for only $19.99 but offers 1080p HD video resolution, infrared night vision, two-way audio, and other premium features.

Indoor and outdoor security cameras: what’s the difference?

If you want to equip your home or business with security cameras and provide complete property coverage, you will most likely need both indoor and outdoor security cameras placed inside the home or building and around the facade, respectively. But what is the difference between them? Is it possible to use an outdoor camera indoors, and vice versa? Keep reading to find out.

Strength and weather resistance

As you might guess, the main difference between indoor and outdoor security cameras lies in their ability to withstand the different elements they are in.

Surveillance cameras, as the name suggests, are located outside. As a result, they are usually built to very high standards of quality and durability to withstand weather conditions such as rain, humidity, snow, extreme heat and cold, even wind. They are also usually shockproof as well as dustproof to keep dirt and other elements out. They will almost always have an IP rating, a designation that indicates exactly how waterproof or impact resistant they are.

Often outdoor security cameras are also made of metal as they are more prone to hacking than indoor security cameras.

On the other hand, indoor cameras are not exposed to bad weather in a climate controlled environment. For this reason, they are often not waterproof and do not always meet the same ruggedness and extreme standards as outdoor security cameras. They can be quite durable, dustproof and shockproof, but are not designed to withstand the changing seasons and unpredictable elements that outdoor cameras usually have.

Size

While not a general rule, outdoor security cameras are also usually much larger than indoor ones, as a result of their more durable, often waterproof construction. Outdoor cameras also tend to care less about blending in with their surroundings than indoor cameras, which are often designed to be thinner and less conspicuous in order to be less of a distraction from the interior.

Possibilities and software in low light

Design and size are not the only things that distinguish indoor and outdoor security cameras. In many cases, they also differ in their ability to see under dynamic lighting conditions. Outdoor cameras have traditionally had extended dynamic range and low-light capabilities, allowing them to see in challenging lighting conditions. They were also designed to handle flashes of light and blackouts.

However, with the passage of time and advances in technology, many indoor cameras now have the same capabilities, allowing them to adapt to even more challenging lighting conditions.

For example, a camera placed in a warehouse or garage needs to have a wide enough dynamic range to see different lighting situations, such as a dark warehouse interior and a much brighter building exterior.

It is expected that these differences in technology between internal and external cameras will become smaller and smaller in the future.

Can you use the inside camera outside and vice versa?

This will depend on the specific camera being used, but in most cases a purely indoor camera won’t be a good choice for outdoor use as they simply won’t be built to the same standards of water resistance and durability. Likewise, most outdoor cameras, while more than reliable for indoor use, will simply be too big and heavy to mount comfortably indoors.

With that said, there are so many cameras, such as dome cameras and PTZ cameras, that cater to both locations, so whatever your needs, you’ll have more than enough options to choose from.

BSP Security – External or internal camera

Before choosing a security camera, you need to decide where it will be installed. Cameras are divided into external and internal, and are used in external and internal surveillance systems.

External chamber – any chamber installed in a suitable heated enclosure, or a special chamber that is resistant to the external environment. As a rule, such cameras have an anti-vandal housing that complies with the IP protection standard (degree of protection of the shell).

What is IP 66?

Video surveillance professionals often see the term IP66 on equipment. In this case, we understand that video surveillance equipment can be used outdoors, but what exactly is the IP66 marking?

Typically rated IP66, this refers to the ability of an IP or analog camera to keep foreign matter (solid and liquid) out of the housing. IP stands for degree of protection (not a digital signal). The first digit (in this case it is 6) characterizes the rating, which is given to assess the security of the camera from solid objects. Rating 1 is the lowest, which determines the security of the camera only from large objects over 50 mm in diameter. Rating 6 is the highest rating, meaning that the camera is dustproof.

The second digit in the code (again, in this case 6) determines how well the surveillance camera can withstand liquids. Rating 1 means no special protection at all. A rating of 8 is the highest rating, meaning the camera can even be used for continuous immersion in water.

Below are 2 tables describing the rating of two digits IP:

Degree of protection against hard objects

1st digit

Designation

Description

0

No protection

No special protection.

1

Protected against solid objects larger than 50mm

Protected against large objects, feet and hands (without protection against deliberate access), solid objects exceeding 50mm in diameter.

2

Protection against solid objects larger than 12mm

Protected against fingers and other hard objects larger than 12mm in diameter.

3

Protection against solid objects larger than 2.5mm

Protected against tools, wires, etc. with a diameter or thickness of more than 2.5 mm, other solid objects exceeding 2.5 mm in diameter.

4

Protection against solid objects larger than 1mm

Protected against solid objects larger than 1. 0mm in diameter.

5

Dust protection

The ingress of dust is not completely prevented, but the dust does not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with the normal operation of the equipment.

6

Dust tight

Complete dust/pollen protection

Degree of protection against liquids

2nd digit

Designation

Description

0

No protection

No special protection.

1

Protection against drops of water

Protected against dripping water (vertically falling drops)

2

Protected against drops of water falling at an angle up to 15°

Protected against water in the vertical plane. Dripping water must not be adversely affected when the housing is tilted up to 15° from the normal position

3

Splash guard

Water splashing at an angle up to 60° from the vertical must not cause harmful effects.

4

Protection against splashes and small water jets

Splashes of water against the housing in any direction shall not cause harmful effects.

5

Protection against water jets

Large jets of water against the enclosure from any direction shall not cause harmful effects.

6

Heavy and salt water protection

Sea waves and powerful jets of water may not penetrate into the body of the equipment or have any other harmful effect.

7

Protected against momentary immersion in water

When the housing is immersed in water under certain pressure conditions for a short time, no water enters the equipment.

8

Immersion protection equipment

Equipment suitable for continuous immersion in water under conditions to be specified by the manufacturer.

Therefore, marking Weatherproof IP66 for CCTV cameras will mean that the manufacturer guarantees that the cameras are dust-tight and protected even from severe water jets and coastal waves.

Best iphone photo printers: 6 Best Photo Printers for iPhone

6 Best Photo Printers for iPhone

Digital photos are great, but there’s nothing quite like a real physical photo. Learn more about some of the best photo printers for iPhone in this guide.

They say that the best camera is the one you have with you. For most of us, we have a high-quality camera built into our smartphones. The trouble is, the beautiful photos we take rarely get looked at, staying hidden on our phones or in the cloud.

If you want to bring your images into the real world, then a portable iPhone photo printer may be just what you need. These printers can turn your snaps into stunning prints in a matter of seconds. Photo printers are often small enough to take with you so you can print your images wherever you may be.

Let’s take a look at some of the best photo printers for iPhones below.

1. Lifeprint Photo Printer

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, like to see excellent use of AR capabilities, or just want to print high-quality images from your iPhone with a single click, the Lifeprint Photo Printer has you covered.

Its USP is that, by using the app, you can print a thumbnail of a video clip you’ve recorded on your phone. When you view that photo through the Lifeprint app, you’ll see the photo in your hand come to life with the embedded video. It’s a smart trick, and a great way to get your videos out into the real world, as well as your photos.

If you prefer your photos to remain still, then the Lifeprint Photo Printer also prints high-quality prints with just a tap on your phone. There are versions that can print 2×3 inch or 3×4.5 inch photos, and the printer uses Zink photo paper, so there’s no need to buy ink. The prints also have sticky backs, so you put them up wherever you wish.

2. Fujifilm Instax Mini Link Smartphone Printer

(Image Credit: Fujifilm)

The Fujifilm Instax Mini Link Smartphone Printer lives up to its name; it’s small enough to fit into your pocket. The prints it produces are also mini, coming out at just 1.8×2.4 inches.

The printer uses Instax film that doesn’t require any additional ink, and you can buy this paper in a range of different colors and styles. The prints have a nice retro feel, with a white border that gives them a classic Polaroid look.

The printer also has motion sensing, so you can use the printer to control your smartphone camera. For example, you can zoom in and out by tilting the printer to the left or the right. You can also print a second copy of the same photo just by turning the printer upside down.

The latest version of the printer also has a nice feature that allows you to use the light on the printer itself to draw in the air when taking a photo in the app.

3. Liene Photo Printer

(Image Credit: Liene)

If you’re looking to print more traditional-style photos, then the Liene Photo Printer could be a great choice. It produces classic 4×6 inch prints, which are the largest prints of any printer in this list. The larger photos inevitably mean that this isn’t a printer that you can fit into your pocket. It’s still small enough to take out with you, however.

The prints use dye-sublimation rather than inkless tech, so you need to use ink cartridges and traditional photo paper with this printer. The good news is that the cost per print works out similarly to many other printers in this list, and the quality of the prints is excellent.

It’s not the most attractive-looking printer, either, but if you want high-quality 4×6 prints, then the Liene Photo Printer can give you exactly that.

4. HP Sprocket Photo Printer

(Image Credit: HP)

The HP Sprocket family has grown over the years, with a line-up that can meet most needs. The original Sprocket is a Zink printer that produces 2×3 inch prints on self-adhesive photo paper so that you can stick the images wherever you want them. The small prints match the small size of the printer, which is just over 3 inches wide and less than 5 inches long.

If you’re looking for larger prints, there are larger printers that produce 3×4 inch prints, or the HP Sprocket Studio Plus can print 4×6 inch photos. Unlike the other printers in the Sprocket lineup, the HP Sprocket Studio Plus uses dye-sublimation cartridges rather than Zink technology.

The Sprocket app also includes a few nice features, such as custom stickers, collage creation, and an option to split a photo into nine parts, so that you can create a bigger image by placing the nine printed images together.

5. Polaroid Mint

(Image Credit: Polaroid)

You can’t have an article about instant photo printing without including a printer from the company that put instant photos on the map. The Polaroid Mint is a great little iPhone printer that, at just three inches wide, 4.5 inches long, and less than 6 oz, is incredibly portable. It produces 2×3 inch prints on Zink sticky paper. You can print out a photo from your iPhone in under a minute.

The printer has a decent battery life when in use, but does tend to run down quickly when on standby, so don’t expect to pull it out of a drawer with any charge left in it. The companion app allows includes useful photo editing features as well as filters, stickers, and borders to spice up your photos.

The Polaroid Mint is a fairly uninspiring design but comes in a choice of funky colors that really make it pop.

6. Canon Selphy Square QX10

(Image Credit: Canon)

Thanks to Instagram, it’s hip to be square. If you’ve got a ton of photos that were taken with Instagram in mind, then the Canon Selphy Square QX10 may be just what you need. As you might expect from the name, it prints square 2.7 x 2.7-inch images on slightly larger paper, creating a classic Polaroid look with a large bottom border that you can use to add your own captions.

The printer uses dye sublimation, so you’ll need to purchase both paper and ink for this printer. Canon does sell paper and ink combinations, however, so that you’ll have exactly the right amount of ink and paper for the number of prints you want to produce.

The dye sublimation tech produces high-quality prints that Canon says will last up to 100 years, although you may not be around to hold them to that claim. This is also the smallest dye-sub printer on this list, offering great printing in a small package.

                The best iPhone photo printer we’ve tested is the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300, a professional-grade unit that produces amazingly detailed and vibrant photos. You can connect your iPhone to the printer via Wi-Fi, and since it supports Apple AirPrint, you can start printing immediately without needing to install any drivers or third-party apps. The Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY companion app allows you to print, copy, execute maintenance routines, and order ink, among other things. The PRO-300 supports borderless printing and various paper sizes up to 13″ x 19″.

                So, the print quality is amazing; what’s the catch? First, this is a print-only model, meaning it doesn’t have a scanner to digitize or copy physical photos. Second, its printing speed is very slow, taking nearly two minutes to print a 4″ x 6″ photo. Third, its ink cartridges yield only about 400 color prints, which means you’ll have to replace them regularly, and they aren’t exactly cheap, so it can get expensive if you print a lot. Nonetheless, this is the one to get if you’re only looking for the best print quality.

                If you only print photos for personal use and don’t need a professional-grade model, get the Epson EcoTank Photo ET-8550 instead. This all-in-one has a scanner that produces high-quality scans, so it’s great for digitizing your old photos. Epson’s mobile companion app even has features exclusive to the iOS version, allowing you to change settings like the paper type and size, the paper source, and the color space (Adobe RGB or sRGB). There’s also a secondary app called Epson Creative Print, which you can use to make collages and apply special effects to your photos before printing.

                Broader assortment of features aside, this printer has one notable downside when printing photos compared to the pricier Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300: color accuracy. It still produces very nice and detailed photos but tends to oversaturate the colors to make them appear more vibrant. Thankfully, since it’s a supertank model, you won’t need to worry about high ownership costs. A full ink reservoir yields thousands of prints, and ink refill bottles are cheap. This model also supports paper sizes up to 13″ x 19″. If you don’t need to print tabloid-size and would rather save some money, there’s a smaller variant that performs identically but only supports up to 8.5″ x 11″ paper: the Epson EcoTank Photo ET-8500.

                Our mid-range pick is the Epson EcoTank ET-2800, also sold as the Epson EcoTank ET-2803 at Walmart and Target. It’s also an all-in-one supertank model with a high page yield and cheap ink, keeping maintenance costs low. It reproduces very fine details and most hues accurately and has a wide color gamut. The only complaint about the print quality is that the photos look slightly grainy. Unfortunately, speed-wise, it’s pretty slow, taking about a minute and a half to print a single 4″ x 6″ photo.

                You can connect to the printer via Wi-Fi, and yes, you still get Apple AirPrint support and compatibility with the Epson mobile app. The scanner produces good-quality scans too. However, if you’re looking to digitize photos, know that it has trouble capturing finer details, and it tends to boost the contrast and saturation a bit, so you may need to do some retouches if you want the scan to be as close to the original as possible. It supports borderless printing, but unlike our picks above, it can only print on paper sizes up to 8.5″ x 11″.

                For people shopping on a tighter budget, we recommend the Canon PIXMA TR8620a. Now, right off the bat, it’s important to note that the Epson EcoTank ET-2800 is currently on sale for a similar price to the Canon TR8620a and represents a better value proposition in some ways; the Epson’s supertank design results in a much higher page yield and lower maintenance costs. Regarding photo printing quality, the Epson also does better in resolving fine details, and its scanner produces sharper copies than the Canon. The Canon has its fair share of upsides: color accuracy is markedly better, and the printer is significantly faster when printing photos.

                The Canon supports various paper sizes up to 8.5″ x 11″. You get the usual suite of Wi-Fi, USB, and Ethernet connectivity and support for Apple AirPrint. You can also print directly from an SD card.

                If you need a cheap printer to print the occasional photo, the Canon PIXMA MG3620 might be a good fit. It prints good-quality photos with well-rendered fine details and decent color accuracy. Printing speed is also pretty quick, as it takes only 50 seconds to print a 4″ x 6″ picture. It has a flatbed scanner that’s well-suited for digitizing photos, too, not to mention Wi-Fi connectivity and Apple AirPrint support. Again, it prints borderless, but only on paper up to 8.5″ x 11″ in size.

                Unfortunately, this model uses a two-cartridge system with one black and one tri-color cartridge. These ink cartridges yield only about 200 prints, about 100 fewer prints than the more expensive Canon PIXMA TR8620a. Also, since there’s only one color cartridge, you have to replace the entire cartridge if only a single color runs out, which is wasteful. On the upside, these cartridges are cheap, so your long-term maintenance costs won’t rise too quickly.

                For on-the-go photo printing, get the Canon PIXMA TR150. You can connect to the printer via USB or Wi-Fi, and thanks to its Apple AirPrint support, you can start printing without installing any drivers or third-party apps. Though slightly grainy, the photos it produces still look detailed and colorful. It prints on glossy paper and supports various paper sizes, including 4″ x 6″, 5″ x 7″, and 8″ x 10″. The ink cartridges yield only about 190 color prints, meaning you’ll have to replace them often; however, they’re relatively cheap, so your maintenance cost won’t rise much if you print a lot.

                As a portable printer, it has a built-in rechargeable battery, allowing you to print anywhere. The battery is good for around 330 prints and takes about two hours to fully charge. If you want something even more portable, check out the Canon SELPHY Square QX10. It’s much more compact and easier to fit into a small bag. It uses dye-sublimation to print photos and can only print on Canon’s 2.84″ x 3.35″ proprietary paper. However, print quality isn’t as good as the TR150, although that’s normal since it’s designed to produce polaroid-like photos. Another tradeoff compared to the TR150 is that the cost per print is much higher, so it can get expensive if you print a lot. Also, you can only print about 20 photos before the built-in battery runs out of power.

The Ultimate Guide To Using Wireless Microphone To Speaker In 2023!

Table of Contents

A wireless microphone to speaker connection is a type of audio system that uses a wireless transmitter and receiver to send sound signals from the microphone to the speakers. The wireless signal transmits through radio frequency (RF) waves, which travel from one device to the other without needing any physical wiring or cables between them. This makes it easy for users to set up and use their systems in different locations.

The RF wave signal generally has a range of approximately 100 feet, but this can vary depending on environmental factors like walls, furniture and other objects blocking its path. To ensure an optimal audio quality setup, users should use compatible devices with similar frequencies as well as high-quality equipment such as microphones and speakers that are designed for this specific purpose.

The use of a wireless microphone to speaker setup is an increasingly popular way for musicians, performers, and audio engineers to enhance their sound. By eliminating the need for physical cables connecting the microphone to the speaker, a wireless solution allows users more freedom of movement and greater flexibility when setting up their equipment. Not only does this make it easier to transport gear from gig to gig or venue-to-venue but also increases overall sound quality due to fewer potential sources of interference.

Wireless microphone systems are becoming commonplace in both professional and home recording studios as well as on stage at music festivals and other live events – offering an unprecedented level of convenience without sacrificing performance.

Wireless Microphone for Bluetooth Speaker

Wireless microphones for Bluetooth speakers provide an easy way to take your audio experience to the next level. These microphones connect wirelessly with any compatible speaker, allowing you to stream your music or amplify speech without the need for additional cables and cords. Not only are they ideal for public speaking events, but they can also be used at home or in a professional setting when you need high-quality sound on the go.

With their convenience and affordability, wireless microphones are quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to bring audio into any space.

Microphone With Built-In Speaker

The microphone with a built-in speaker is an incredibly useful tool for anyone who needs to amplify their voice in order to be heard. With its integrated design, it eliminates the need for an additional amplifier or sound system, and provides clear audio quality that can easily be adjusted depending on the desired volume and sound level. Additionally, this type of device has several features such as noise cancellation technology and echo control which further enhance the user’s experience when speaking into it.

Bluetooth Microphone With Speaker

A Bluetooth microphone with speaker is a convenient and modern way to amplify your voice without having to rely on bulky, wired equipment. This type of device allows you to easily stream audio from a compatible device, like your phone or laptop, directly through the mic itself. Not only does this make it easier for people in large groups to hear each other more clearly during conversations, but also provides an enhanced listening experience when used with audio sources like music or podcasts.

Portable Microphone And Speaker for Presentations

Portable microphones and speakers are the perfect tool for making presentations. They provide crystal clear sound, portability, and ease of use. Whether you need to make a presentation in a small conference room or a large auditorium, these devices allow you to project your voice with clarity and precision.

With their lightweight design, they can be easily carried from one venue to another without any hassle. Furthermore, most microphone-speaker combos come with an array of features such as Bluetooth connectivity, rechargeable batteries and even audio recording capabilities that make them ideal for virtually any situation!

How Do I Connect My Wireless Microphone to My Speakers?

If you want to connect a wireless microphone to your speakers, it can be done relatively easily. First, you’ll need to make sure that your microphone is compatible with the type of speakers being used and that they are both connected to the same frequency. Once this is established, locate the audio output on your speakers and plug in an adapter cable or audio receiver (depending on what kind of connection you have).

Next, power up your wireless microphone and set it up according to its instructions. Finally, press play on the receiver or adapter cable and adjust the volume as needed – just like how you would normally control any other sound device. And there you go!

You now know how to successfully connect a wireless microphone to your speaker system for live performances or streaming content.

Can You Connect a Wireless Microphone to a Wireless Speaker?

Yes, you can connect a wireless microphone to a wireless speaker. Wireless microphones are becoming increasingly popular and allow users to use their microphone without the need for any cords or wires. To make this connection, you will need two compatible devices; one that is capable of broadcasting audio signals (the transmitter), and another that is able to receive them (the receiver).

The most common way of connecting these two devices is through Bluetooth technology, which allows them to communicate wirelessly with each other. Once connected, sound from the microphone should be broadcasted through the speakers at a distance depending on your equipment’s range capabilities. In addition to this convenience, having both pieces of equipment eliminates the need for extra cabling and setup time – no more plugging in cables before every performance!

With proper pairing procedure between both devices, setting up a wireless microphone and speaker connection has never been easier!

Can a Mic Be Connected Directly to a Speaker?

The answer is yes, a microphone can be connected directly to a speaker. This connection allows the audio signal from the microphone to be amplified and heard through the speaker. The direct connection of a mic to a speaker requires an amplifier, which can either be built into the mic or come as an external device.

A direct connection also means that there are fewer components in between the microphone and the output sound, resulting in better quality sound. Additionally, connecting a microphone directly to a speaker allows for more flexibility in terms of placement and portability since no additional equipment is required other than what comes with both devices. However, it should also be noted that amplifying any audio signal has its own set of issues such as feedback loops and distortion due to over-amplification so some caution should always be taken when using this type of setup.

Can You Connect a Wireless Microphone to a Jbl Speaker?

Yes, you can connect a wireless microphone to a JBL speaker. The process is relatively simple and only requires that you have the right equipment. First, you will need an audio receiver with wireless capabilities such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi; this will allow your microphone to send its signal wirelessly to the speaker.

Once this is done, all that’s left is to plug in the receiver into your JBL speaker and turn it on. After doing so, you should be able to pair your microphone with the receiver and then begin using it with your JBL speakers without any further setup required. Additionally, if needed, some receivers also offer various options for sound mixing which may come in handy depending on what type of performance you are planning on having.

All in all, connecting a wireless microphone to a JBL speaker is quite simple when equipped with proper equipment and knowledge!

Conclusion

This blog post has illustrated the numerous benefits of using a wireless microphone to speaker system. From convenience, portability, and enhanced sound quality – it is clear that the use of such devices can be advantageous for any application. Whether you are hosting a large event or simply need to listen to music from your phone wirelessly, these systems provide an easy solution.

With their low cost and wide range of features, there is no question why they are becoming increasingly popular in many types of settings.
