Defender Wi-Fi security cameras are not only great for a wide range of home and business needs: they are also dependable and reliable. Having tested a wide range of smart cameras from many different manufacturers, including Defender, I can attest to the value and usefulness of their cameras. I have also tested this particular camera and there are many things that I love about it that I’ll get into below. If you are looking for a security camera, learn about Defender, then enter below for a chance to win a new Defender Guard Pro 2K Wi-Fi camera for your home or business.

What should you look for in a security camera

There are a lot of manufacturers of security cameras and I’ve installed some really good ones and some that were not very good. Most home and business owners are not looking for “maximum security prison” level of security for their home; they want cameras that are easy to install, use, and maintain and that will do what they promise: detect movement, record that movement, and enable us to use that recording in the future.

Some of the main considerations affecting a smart camera purchase will be:

  1. internet connection: there are systems that don’t require the internet (using onsite monitors and storage), but if you want event notifications, and be able to view live and recorded events on your phone, you’ll need either wired ethernet to your camera system, or a camera system that supports Wi-Fi connections. The camera we are giving away in this contest can be do both, though most people will connect it to Wi-Fi for convenience.
  2. Power options: Some camera systems get their power from their connection to a DVR (like this Defender system does); some camera use a battery (requiring regular battery recharging). The camera we are giving away is the type that plugs right into an outlet.
  3. Cost: there is no limit to how much people can spend on a camera system, but there are also reasonably priced systems like those from Defender that will suit the needs of most people. The prize we have for this contests doesn’t even require any additional fees for video storage. Most Wi-Fi cameras these days charge you a monthly fee to store video in the cloud. The Defender Guard Pro camera stores the video footage on the camera itself: no fees required.

Why should you consider a Defender security camera

Defender cameras offer a lot of value. I believe that anyone, regardless of technical skill can set up a Defender camera and use it effectively. The instructions that come with it are very clear, and the company’s website has lots of useful videos—you could just follow a video and set it up in minutes! The image quality you’ll see on your phone or tablet will be as clear or more clear than most other cameras on the market. Read my review of the new Defender Guard Pro 2K Wi-Fi camera to find out why I really like their newest product.

I have 3 different Defender systems connected to my phone and on all of them the video is clear, easy to magnify an area of interest, and quick to load. Each of their apps are simple to navigate, very responsive (no waiting for 10 to 30 seconds for a video to start like you’ll find with many other companies), and offer a wide range of sensitivity settings to suit most people. And importantly, these cameras are very reasonably priced so you will want to add multiple cameras to the one app and have your home covered front, back, and sides. You’ll often find them on sale for great savings at Best Buy too.

Defender Guard pro 2K Wi-Fi cameras may be exactly what you are looking for

The prize we are giving away in this contest is likely going to be perfect for your needs. I have areas of my property where a wireless, battery powered camera is necessary. However, both driveway entrances have buildings with electrical power and outlets, so I prefer a camera like the Guard Pro so I don’t have to charge a battery. I have some cameras that are wired directly into my electrical panel which is great. But the Guard Pro has an advantage over those that I can move it from one location to another: something I can’t do as easily with my other wired cameras. I also pay cloud storage fees for some of my cameras (and have no other choice with those options). The Guard Pro is like some of my other cameras that have on camera storage: this option works great. Lastly, the 2K resolution means you can zoom in on someone in the video and still see clear details to aid identification.

If you have plans this summer that will require you to be away from your home, then a security camera may be just what you need so you can keep an eye on your property while travelling. Also, I know many people will have a wedding to attend which can require gift or other package deliveries to your home. A camera like the one we are giving away is a great way to keep entrances monitored: you can even talk to the delivery person through the camera, giving instructions about where to place the package!

  3. I love how the Defender Guard Pro 2K Wi-Fi security camera connects to WiFi. This is a huge selling point and really appeals to me. Thanks!

  4. The top-selling point for me is that the set-up does not require a high level of technical skill and the on-line instructions are user-friendly. So there’s a good chance that I could do it myself.

  5. “2K resolution means you can zoom in on someone in the video and still see clear details to aid identification.” I love the 2k resolution. When you zoom in on something, or someone you want to be able to see more details, not lose them, so there is no mistaking someone, for someone else.

  6. Having the ability to remotely monitor the camera would be a great asset for me as we live in a rural area and would be able to keep an eye on our property when we are away.

  7. Sounds like it’s a very flexible camera system from storage to the way it’s powered to even the internet connection types. Hard to say which feature is most appealing but I’ll go with 2K resolution just for the fact you could zoom in and have a clear picture of someone’s face if you needed it.

  8. I love the the 2K resolution. Its important to be able to have clear details to aid identification just in case.

  9. I love the remote monitoring, great quality camera, video storage, and east to set-up the Defender.

  10. ” the set up was fast and simple, the manufacturer’s instructions were clear, the connection to the app was quick and without incident, and the performance of both camera and app were exactly as expected”
    Love that it is easy to set up and use.

  11. I like that it can connect through wi fi. It’s one of the more important features for me aside from picture quality.

  12. IT is such a great feature rich camera for such a great price.
    I love that the Defender doesn’t require any fees for video storage.
