As part of an ongoing series, the CNN Underscored team showcases outstanding deals you can shop right now on the CNN Store.

It doesn't matter if you're away from your home for three weeks or just three hours -- scary situations can arise at a moment's notice. That's why to get the ultimate peace of mind when you step out of your house, you'll want to invest in a wireless security camera.

When you're shopping for an option, there are a few things to look for, the biggest now being encryption. The last thing you want is a hacker tapping into your security camera feed. Another feature you'll likely want is the ability to access your home security camera from your smartphone or other devices, so you can always check back in even if you're away from home.

Then there are other, more standard features to be on the lookout for: night vision capabilities, a discreet design and a full scope of camera visibility among them.

One option that checks all of those boxes is the iPM World HD 360-Degree Wireless IP Camera ($44.99, originally $129.99; store.cnn.com). This highly functional camera keeps your footage private with multiple encryption protocols. With it, you can securely view your home with panoramic views. Other notable features include motion and alarm detection, as well as a built-in microphone and speaker system.

But what really seals the deal for us is its current price of just $44.99 -- that's 65% off its typical price tag. We think it's a small price to pay to help ensure your home and your belongings are safe while you're away.
