The really tempting option is the Blink Mini, which is down to just £24.99. If you're wondering about taking a first step into smart security, it's an ideal first buy, thanks to being easy to set up and use, a slick app, a great small design, and a really useful set of features including motion detection, night vision and cloud or local storage.

The Blink Mini is great for indoor, but if you want to monitor the outside of your home, you'll need something built for the weather, and the dark. The Ring Spotlight Cam Battery is now just £139, and this is a totally wireless outdoor security camera, meaning you just mount it outside, and you don't need to worry about drilling a hole for a cable through your wall, or anything like that.
It's battery powered, it includes infrared night vision for motion detection as well as two big lights for giving you a full view of anything that's happening, there's a built-in siren for scaring off would-be intruders, and it uses cloud storage to make recordings and video available to you anywhere.
