There are plenty of networked home security cameras on the market, but I’m not sure I’ve seen a better all-around package for $60 than this one.

Yes, the Yi Home Camera will let you monitor a live view on your phone, and even chat with a two-way intercom function. The real standout feature though is that if it detects any motion, it’ll automatically save the footage to an included 32GB microSD card. Many competing cameras offer similar functionality with a cloud DVR service, but that’s typically associated with a monthly fee. With the Yi, you just pay once upfront, and own all of your data.
