Best home security cameras with Simple Control?

What is currently the absolute best security camera that works with simple control and why? I would like to get images on my control screen without flipping around to too many screens. Ideally a small window on my main simple control screen would be nice.

Along these lines what is the best and most easily integrated home alarm system into simple control?

Does Vivint work well? Nest? What direction would you guys go knowing that these systems often lock you into multi year deals.

Hello, I am new to this form and was browsing the posts. There are many compatible cameras out there that work with SC. For a home based recording solution check out Security Spy. It is a Mac based recorder and their app for iPhone works great as well. I have an old Mac that is used to just record and the system has 6 cameras recording 3-5 MP cameras. A cheap and high quality camera like Hikvision works well.
