Tablo’s over-the-air DVR software has gotten a lot better over the last year, and now it has hardware to match with the Tablo Quad. The $200 DVR box from Ottawa-based Nuvyyo can turn a single antenna into a whole-home DVR for cord-cutters.

The Yi Dome Camera 1080p packs a lot of home security camera into a small package. For $59.99, it offers mechanical pan and tilt, motion and sound detection, motion tracking, and local and cloud-based event recording. It also takes panoramic photos and has a Baby Crying alert feature (though we were unable to get the latter to work in testing). It offers lots of value for per dollar, though it doesn’t interact with other smart devices like our Editors’ Choice for affordable security cams, the D-Link Full HD Wi-Fi Camera DCS-8300LH. The Yi Dome Camera can be mounted on a ceiling, a wall, or be placed on any flat surface. The pear-shaped black enclosure stands 4.3 inches high and measures 3.6 inches in diameter at the base and 2.5 inches in diameter at the top. The top portion holds the circular camera, which captures video at 1080p and has a 4x...
