Unfortunately, the Belkin NetCam HD+ had the lowest audio quality in our tests; it was unintelligible. However, audio is arguably less important than video for the purposes of an inexpensive security camera. We had some trouble setting up this camera, largely because it felt less stable than other cameras we tested. After setup, it was relatively easy to use due to an intuitive mobile app, though it doesn't let you schedule when to record video. Belkin uses the cloud to store video recordings from the NetCam, as long as you pay a subscription fee of $5. 99 each month – very competitive with other cloud storage plans.

This security camera uses microSD cards up to 64GB to record video, so there aren't any ongoing fees. You can use the mobile app to customize the video quality to optimize camera performance or save storage space. This is an especially helpful feature that isn't in every security camera. The audio quality on this camera doesn't compare well with the competition, but is clear enough when using the two way audio function. We had some issues with the camera dropping its Wi Fi connection during testing, but not enough to make the camera unusable. The SmartCam's one year warranty is average for security cameras, but half as long as the warranties from Nest and Belkin.
