Arlo Smart Indoor Security Camera
Netgear Arlo Q
Arlo Q (UK version here).
Unfortunately, Netgear Arlo indoor models (Arlo Q and Arlo Q Plus) don’t come with battery option. This maybe an issue when the mounting spot is far from the power source.
However, the 7 days of free cloud storage for video recording is the most generous among the competing brands. This’s because most of them provide 24 hours of free storage only. The standard smart features are notification, motion detection, 2-way audio and so on. And they don’t need a base station to work since they’re Wi-Fi standalone devices.

Where to Go From Here
Due to the international shipping costs and custom duties, it’s worth buying locally even when the price is slightly higher than overseas prices. The only 2 reasons why you should buy the recommended items here are: 1) the items are not available locally, 2) the local prices are significantly higher.
