This Wyze Cam and Floodlight combination is the best floodlights and camera combo for your money. If you're trying to set up a security light but prefer more in-depth surveillance, this combo is easily installed in a junction box, and even has an extra USB port to add another Wyze Cam, which is pretty handy if you want to set this up on a corner.
The biggest benefit for this camera and floodlight combination, is that you don't have to pay for an extra monthly subscription, as you can add an SD Card to the camera of up to 256GB for local storage. As far as reliable, durable, inexpensive options go, you can't go wrong with the Wyze Cam Floodlight.
Its IP65 rating makes it weather-resistant to anything the world has to offer, and the 2600lm bright light, 105dB siren, and built-in motion sensor are sure to deter any unwelcome visitors.
Installation: This unit must be hardwired, so an existing junction box is a great place to install it. The camera will get constant power from the wiring, so it'll always be available to check in on, whether the lights are on or off.
