simple wifi security setup

I live in an apartment so don't want anything elaborate or disruptive (e.g. if a maintenance dude accidentally opens my entrance and an alarm goes off, won't be good). So thinking of just getting something like a wifi camera w/ motion detection and perhaps wide angle or moving capability, plus maybe so window alarm sensors. Do you guys have anything like this set up at your home? Any suggestions for peace of mind? TIA.

Researching more on this topic, does it make sense to have a wifi/cloud storage capable camera? I assume that means it automatically uploads all recording footage into the cloud instantaneously? Do you guys have any free cloud sites to recommend or you just use a memory card? I would assume that cloud is the best/safest/most efficient way?

For simple, not serious use, get a Wyze Cam.

Can record to an SD card.
Can view remotely.
No port forwarding.

The cameras are rediculously cheap, so there is some idea that the video data may be going 'somewhere else' for mining, but if you are all fine with that, go nuts.

Tx, I'll check that out.

I've found these online, I think a *must* feature for me is that it has to be instantly uploaded into the *cloud* when recording starts, so if a thief comes it and steals the cam, at least the footage is still retrievable. What do you guys think of these? Is 1080p a must? I think night-vision is a must also.

Nothing, and doesn't everyone have a security sys? Just preventative measures.

No, I would say the vast majority of people don't have security systems.
