Netgear says that the system uses three layers of encryption, with restricted Web access on the Base Station and no local access on the camera or the Base Station. Also, in the interest of continually improving security, the company has been working with hacker crowdsourcing firm Bugcrowd to operate a private bug bounty program, which is open to the public as well.
So, the first decision you must make it what are you trying to accomplish by installing these cameras? If you are actually concerned about a break in or potential robbery, than you may look at more of a hard core system that includes some type of monitoring service. This way, if anything ever happens, the police and other proper authorities will be notified. This type of system is also actually much more affordable than many people realize. Of course, you will need to pay for the cameras themselves, which can be fairly expensive depending on the type of features and level of sophistication you are after. But that is a one time expense.
Other than that what some people have done is create virtual machine with screen broadcasting software. After logging into the Nest/Dropcam web app they setup Blue Iris to tap into the local broadcast stream.
One of the advantages of hiring a professional installer is having an experienced person help you determine which viewing angles are best for the security of your home. During your initial walk-through, discuss the precise areas you’d like to monitor and how wide or narrow of a view you’d like. This will help your installer determine which camera lens you need and to calibrate your system accordingly.

The positioning and location of your camera is important. The first step is to prioritize areas of your home that need surveillance. Make sure you choose areas where cameras cannot be tampered. Here are some of the main outdoor areas that need surveillance:
I suppose that ultimately the option which you choose comes down to your own personal criteria and goals. Maybe you are fine with having a wired system. Maybe you would prefer a wireless system (like me). In the end it probably does not matter. This Lorax camera is one of the better ones that I have seen.
Similar technology has often proven to be problematic and less than reliable in other products so it remains to be seen whether the Ulo development team can find the right combination.
Ulo comes only in black and is made of 655% recyclable ABS plastic. At the top of the head , a capacitive button is located which is the primary means of activation. The speaker and USB charging ports are located on the back of the unit.
In the end, this camera is a perfect example of a balancing act. What is more important to you? I like the strong construction and the picture quality. On the other hand, there are also a number of disadvantages.
