    Wondering if anyone out there has a recommendation for a DIY security system that would include video and possibly thermostat control that’s accessible via mobile. Nest seems like it would work but it’s a google product.

    This would be for a second “home”. Any ideas?

    I believe that Xiaomi has products that you are looking for.

    I would avoid wireless cameras at all costs; you will be sacrificing security, privacy, and the ability to use your own DVR (most of the time). On top of all of that, you will need to recharge your camera batteries multiple times a year depending on which brand/model you use.

    I would recommend a cheap IP camera system that includes a DVR. It's a lot of work up front, but they will last a very long time and you will have the ability to plug n play with new cameras in the future.
