Best Motion Detection Camera For Home Security System?

We have gotten this question a number times - What is the best motion detection camera for a home security system? In other words, what cameras is the most reliable / accurate in generating alerts based on motion detection?

What is tricky here is that, for home use, people are rarely going to spend on professional video analytics (i.e., it's hard to justify VideoIQ at your house unless you have serious security issues / are quite rich).

I do not have any experiences with home / budget cameras / systems where motion detection was accurate / reliable, certainly when aimed outdoors.

Anyone with positive experiences with inexpensive home quality motion detection?
