These home security cams — starting at $18, today only — record 24/7 without a subscription

Zosi DVR security systems

Everyone wants home security, but no one wants to pay high-end prices for it. Zosi offers introductory-level security systems at really reasonable prices — we're talking a camera on sale for only $18. They use DVR, so you'll get 24/7 recording without an expensive subscription. Right now, several Zosi cameras and kits are on sale at Amazon, but only for today. Here are the standout deals.

This camera is a great addition to an existing Zosi system. It connects to your CCTV setup.

If you have a smaller system already and want to expand it, snap up this Zosi cam. "It's like you're there!" raved a five-star fan. "This camera is so clear I can see my neighbor's truck tags from 50 yards away. An EXCELLENT buy!"

If you don't yet have a system, consider one of these starter kits.

With four cameras and a DVR system, this system can give you continuous coverage of your home and property.

This is an eight-channel system, which means you can add up to four additional cameras and monitor what's happening on all of those cameras at once. It can also be set up to automatically overwrite the oldest footage so that you have continuous recording. The cameras themselves are IP67 weatherproof, which means they'll hold up to most rainstorms or dusty conditions, and they have night vision up to 80 feet out.

"I have had my first Zosi system for over two years and it's still in use every day. I just ordered a second system to expand my coverage and memory. Company has been great to me and I would recommend," said one five-star reviewer.

This kit includes eight cameras, a 1TB hard drive and 1080p resolution.

"I upgraded my home security to the Zosi [and] I'm still smiling. ... It was very easy to install (I installed it by myself), the picture quality is far superior to the system I had before, the hard drive is capable of storing much more data, and I am able to access the system on my phone to perform various tasks from anywhere," said one fan.

For particularly large homes, this 16-channel camera system lets you keep a close on eye on every possible angle.

"I work for a casino and install/maintain non-gaming surveillance equipment, including cameras. The [Zosi cameras] are not $1,000 apiece surveillance cameras; in fact, I spent less than one third [that] for this entire system than the price of our least expensive camera at work. With that being said, the quality of video I'm getting from this Zosi system is 90% the quality I get from my systems at work at less than 10% of the cost (eight cameras and a storage server)," raved a fan.
