Amazon has their Cloud Cam Indoor Security Camera [amazon.com] for $89.99 (free shipping). I believe this is the lowest ever.

Re Cloud Service on this camera:

Looks like a paid service plan enables additional features and recorded video storage:

Start your free trial
Watch the last 24 hours of clips for free. Or upgrade to a plan for additional storage and intelligent alerts like person detection to get notified when Cloud Cam sees a person. Or set Zones, which lets you select areas that Cloud Cam should ignore, like a fish tank or a tree outside a window

Intelligent alerts
Cloud Cam's motion detection and computer vision technology provides customizable notifications so you only get the alerts that matter. Unlock advanced features with a Cloud Cam subscription plan.

Weird. Surprised this didn't get more TU. I'd understand if it's because everyone prefers the free Netgear Arlo-type cloud offerings. But Nest cam deals get tons of TUs despite being far more expensive. And I'd rather have Amazon surveilling me than Google-owned-Nest.

Also, my understanding is the Netgear cams don't have AI-based zones to prevent false positives. You have to manually adjust sensitivity. My coworker's Arlo gets set off by bees landing on the cam.

Hi ibnuts,

Certainly compared to the higher priced indoor Nest and Netgear Arlo Q i would think you would see some more interest.

Perhaps because Amazon's camera is fairly new to this space people are reserved on the uptake until more reviews come out?

Also, the one downside I did see is that I do not get more advanced features unless I pay for the Amazon service offering... would be nice to see that included in the 24hr free tier.

Re:
Bees, other bugs, and birds right in front of a camera will be an engineering challenge to properly filter on motion detection - some people do use these cameras for wildlife cameras.
