Samsung's entry in the home video surveillance arena is the SmartCam WiFi Home Security Camera (SNH-1011N). It's a nice-looking device with a breezy setup process, some useful features, and remote access for whenever you have an available Internet connection—even via iOS and Android smartphones. The SmartCam ($149 list) lacks features that the same-price and the Editors' Choice offer, such as Logitech's on-board video storage on SD Cards, and "DVR" recording (like that of the Dropcam) is only available via a third-party service for a fee. If you can put up with a few performance glitches, such as occasional crashes and slow-to-load video streams, at least until Samsung updates the firmware, you'll probably be more than happy with the SmartCam.
