Most people would agree that home security is a worthwhile investment, but whether or not you can actually make that investment is another story.

Thankfully, good home security equipment doesn’t have to run you hundreds and hundreds of dollars. As of Jan. 23, sales of eufy security products at Amazon and a SimpliSafe system at Best Buy prove it.

Whether you need a single indoor camera or an entire indoor and outdoor system, you’ll find some savings in these sales. The only catch is that you’ll need to act today to score these savings — both Amazon’s and Best Buy’s offerings are deals of the day, meaning that come Jan. 24, these items will likely be back at full price.

To help get you started, we’ve pulled a few of our top picks, and be sure to check out the rest of the sale.

Best indoor camera pick

Why we like it

Not everyone needs a full security system to feel more secure in their space — a quality camera or two can get the job done just fine. At full price, this eufy camera is already a great deal, which is part of what makes it our favorite indoor camera. Down to $36 for the day, this deal is pretty much unbeatable, offering 360-degree motion capturing, a 2K camera, a built-in alarm we promise you’ll hear, and free local storage (a rarity in the indoor camera space).

Best full system option

Why we like it

SimpliSafe is our absolute favorite company for home security systems, thanks to their reliability (over 4 million people in the country use their systems) and thoroughness. This 17-piece system comes with eight entry sensors, two motion sensors, one panic button, an indoor camera, an outdoor camera, a glassbreak sensor, a keyfob, security decals for your yard, a base station, and a keypad. Plus, it’s compatible with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. And if you want to pay a bit extra for a monthly subscription, you’ll get around-the-clock professional monitoring. We told you — they’re thorough.

Best video doorbell option

Why we like it

Did you know that Ring doorbells are actually not all that great about protecting your privacy? A nice alternative is this eufy pick, which provides footage at a 2K resolution, no subscription fee (if you forego cloud storage), and a base station to locally store your footage.
