Light socket security camera

Looking for Light Bulb Security Camera that meets my needs
My wife doesn’t want us to make any holes in the outside concrete wall.

We have three light bulb sockets on the front porch and on both sides of the garage door. Right now, we use smart bulbs, but we’re okay with using one for a security camera.

Here’s what we want:

  • We don’t want to pay any monthly fees.
  • If there’s no free cloud storage, we’d prefer to store footage locally, like on a shared storage drive.
  • We want it to work with Google Assistant.

Do you have any ideas?

This type of security camera offers both illumination and surveillance simultaneously, enhancing home security.
Typically, these cameras can be directly screwed into a standard light socket to access the power required for operation.

Guy you are really specific about the light camera you want :face_with_hand_over_mouth:!
Despite the numerous specifics, I would recommend you try:

  • Galayou 360 Light Bulb Security Camera: This camera is common for its numerous functions and excellent affordability. It is also compact, discreet, and offers wide visibility, WiFi connectivity, two-way audio, and more.
  • RakeBlue Light Bulb Camera: This camera offers a 1080p resolution, color night vision, and two-way audio. It’s noted for its value and should be sufficient for most applications.
  • LaView 4 MP Bulb Security Camera: It has solid detection and motion-tracking capabilities, along with Starlight color night vision. It also supports Alexa, which indicates potential compatibility with Google Assistant.
  • Google Nest Cam (Battery): Despite not a light bulb camera, this camera does not require a subscription and is designed to work with Google Assistant, offering an alternative solution for the above cameras.

Finish your dealer to confirm on the cameras available and their specifications for a better experience.
Thank you
