Security cameras and video doorbells do more than monitor your property. They’re strong deterrents to burglars, intruders, and other ne’er-do-wells you don’t want trespassing. And should any unwelcome person be so bold as to stick around—or worse, attempt to break in—these devices can record the event and provide you with forensic evidence of the potential crime. Here are the best deals we’ve found in this category during Prime Day.
