Finally, a Home Security Camera That Easily Mounts inside a Window

In theory, home security systems should make us feel safer — in practice, however, they are anything but discreet, can be difficult to install and can be subject to weather and battery failure. The result is often a poorly positioned indoor security camera looking out through a window — which can lead to annoying reflections caused by interior lights. Fortunately, you can still get reliable home security footage without turning your house into a surveillance bunker — no holes required. Panasonic's HomeHawk WINDOW is a super wide-angle home monitoring camera that mounts discreetly to the inside of any window. The camera features built-in person detection, 24/7 full HD recording with color night-vision and Alexa compatibility right out of the box — and with no monthly fees or contracts, it's one of the most convenient and low-commitment options out there.
