Bedroom security camera recommendations?


Novice Member
Ok so I rent a room in a house with 2 other guys that I do not know very well. I met them on Craigslist. I trust them but I have a lot of very expensive computer equipment and other valuables in my room. I also keep all of my food and drinks and alcohol in my room. I am looking for a small security camera that I can place in my room. I want something battery powered with either cloud storage preferably but an SD card wouldn't be the end of the world. Motion activated and am looking for something that I can turn off with a remote or with an app on my phone or something. I want to be able to completely shut it off while I am home and easily turn it on as im walking out the door, to save battery. I've been having trouble finding a good option. There are a lot of $20-$40 cameras on Amazon that seem to fit most of my requirements but I don't want to waste my money on a piece of junk. I don't mind paying a couple hundred dollars if it means I am protecting my thousands of dollars of valuables.

If anybody has any recommendations or experience with a camera that will fit my needs I would really appreciate some advice. Thank you so much! I hope everyone is having a great day!

Sounds like you need a door lock to stop it happening rather than a camera to prove it has happened and to show who did it and thus to start the recriminations and unpleasantness that will cause...
