The HomeKit smart home standard from Apple means that all your smart devices can be organized under one roof, keeping everything safe and secure. One of the most useful gadgets you can hook up to a HomeKit setup is a decent HomeKit enable security camera so that you can keep your home secure from the comfort of your iPhone or iPad. That could be an indoor, outdoor, or video doorbell camera, but whatever you choose you'll get 10 days of iCloud footage storage, face recognition, Activity zones, and easy viewing through the Home app and Siri.
There are loads of security cameras out there, and we've boiled them all down to their key specs and where you can find them. This is our list of all the HomeKit secure video cameras and doorbells that you can buy today.

Logitech's Circle View provides up to 1080p video recording and includes a built-in microphone for speaking with those around your home. In addition, this wired camera connects directly to Apple's Home app without requiring a separate app or account, allowing for a quick setup in just a few minutes. In our review, we especially loved how the Logitech Circle View works indoors and out, making it a flexible option.
The ecobee SmartCamera is part of a whole-home security suite that leverages ecobee's iconic thermostat, smart sensors, and Haven monitoring service. The SmartCamera can detect motion events from sensors triggering notifications, and with 1080p image quality, you can see all of the happenings in great detail. We were quite impressed by the camera's slick digital motion tracking feature in our hands-on review.
eufy's Indoor Cam 2K is the most affordable option around for HomeKit Secure Video. Don't let the low price fool you; this camera produces high-definition 2K visuals and security staples such as two-way audio, motion zones, and even local storage via a micro-SD card. The only downside we could find during testing is that it is for indoor use only.
Aqara's upgraded Camera Hub G2H Pro adds full HomeKit alarm integration, additional storage options, and support for more voice assistants to an already feature-packed security essential. The G2H Pro also has a wide, 146-degree field of view, and it includes Zigbee 3.0 smart hub functionality to pair Aqara accessories directly to it with ease.
Loaded with extras
Like Aqara's G2H, the Camera Hub G3 supports the ability to act as a Zigbee hub for other Aqara accessories. The G3, however, adds motorized pan and tilt controls, IR blaster capabilities, HomeKit security alarm mode, and advanced Facial and Gesture Recognition technology, all while still being incredibly affordable.
For just a few more dollars than eufy's low-cost Indoor Cam 2K, eufy's other indoor camera — the eufy IndoorCam Pan 2K, adds support for panning and tilting. While pan and tilt are only available through the eufy Security app, we enjoyed seeing this 360-degree camera's fantastic tracking feature that follows subjects in view in our recent review.
A step up
Although it may look similar to the eufyCam 2, the upgraded eufyCam 2 Pro model beefs up the visuals with 2K resolution. However, even with the fancy imagery, the two-camera Pro 2K system retains the impressive 365-day battery life, complete with two-way audio and night vision that can shed light on things up to 25 feet away.
Like the eufyCam 2 and 2K Pro, the eufyCam 2C camera keeps it wire-free with a built-in rechargeable battery but comes in a smaller form factor. This camera also includes an integrated spotlight, which surprised us during testing by adding color to darker areas. The spotlight does come with a cost, though, as it only gets six months of battery life between charges.
eufy's upgraded 2C Pro wire-free cameras combine 2K image quality with the same six-month battery life, integrated spotlight, and HomeKit Secure Video of the original. As with all of the outdoor HomeKit-enabled eufyCam cameras, the 2C Pro works with the eufy Home Base 2, so you can mix and match models to best suit your needs.
Stick it up
Eve has been on team HomeKit for quite a while, so it is no surprise that its first camera — the Eve Cam, supports HomeKit Secure Video right out of the box. This 1080p model has a flexible stand that can rotate 360-degrees and allow for pivoting it up and down. This camera's frame also sports a magnetic base that can stick to many surfaces without mounting hardware. As mentioned in our review, Eve's Cam is an all-around solid HomeKit option.
The Netatmo Smart Outdoor Security Camera takes the place of a wired light fixture outdoors, combing a powerful floodlight with HomeKit Secure Video. It provides 1080p HD visuals, a 100-degree wide field of view, and IR night vision that reaches up to 50 feet away. Since it's wired, you don't have to worry about charging batteries every few months.
As with Netatmo's camera, the Eve Outdoor Cam is an all-in-one, hardwired solution that bundles a floodlight and camera into one package. Eve's floodlight delivers 1080p HD video feeds with a 157-degree field of view, making it an excellent entryway option. Plus, a special boost mode goes above the standard brightness setting to provide a better picture of what is going on at night.
VOCOlinc's affordable VC1 Opto Camera works exclusively with Apple's HomeKit Secure Video, keeping all of your home's activities safe and secure in iCloud. Despite the low price, the Opto Camera also includes essentials like 1080p HD video, two-way audio, and night vision, and it even comes with motorized pan and tilt controls.
The Logitech Circle View Doorbell keeps an eye on your packages with a taller 3:4 aspect ratio. With HomeKit Secure Video, the Circle View Doorbell provides a visitor's name using face recognition, and you can even use your HomePods as additional chimes. Despite being on the market for a while, we still stand by our review, which declared it as the HomeKit doorbell for Apple fans.
Ring them in
The HomeKit-exclusive Wemo Smart Video Doorbell provides an extra-wide 223-degree diagonal field of view of your porch, perfect for keeping tabs on your busy household. This doorbell supports 1080p high definition resolution, enhanced night vision, and stores 10 days' worth of events in iCloud through HomeKit Secure Video.
Keep an eye on your home with HomeKit
Adding a HomeKit camera is a great way to keep tabs on what is most important to you. Several cameras are already available on the market, including indoor, outdoor, wired, wire-free, and doorbells, so there is an option for everyone. We've reviewed almost all of the cameras on this list, so you can trust that you're receiving knowledgeable recommendations.
Logitech's Circle View is our favorite HomeKit Secure Video capable camera, thanks to its crisp 1080p imagery, built-in microphone, and easy setup without yet another app to download. This model's sleek design works great indoors, and weather resistance keeps you on top of the action outside of your home.
Are you looking for an outdoor wireless solution? The eufyCam 2C is a unique option that combines a floodlight with a high-resolution camera. Best of all, it runs on an internal battery that can last up to six months on a single charge, so you only have to top it off a couple of times a year.
Once you've got the security sorted, you can start looking at making some fun automation additions to your home too. Consider adding one of the best HomeKit light switches to your Home app setup for an inexpensive way of adding smart lighting controls to regular bulbs.
