May I know which is the best to use on a Raspbery Pi USB slot: a LOGITECH 15MP 1080P HD WEBCAM C920, a LOGITECH HD Pro Webcam C910 or a LOGITECH Webcam C525 8MP HD? I need this info because I am not sure which one is good for a home automation system. Thanks

Here is somebody using the C920 with a Raspberry Pi.

General advice, do not use a USB webcam on a Raspberry Pi. Find a suitable camera that can use the dedicated camera port, it will take a huge load off the CPU. See here.
Try using one of the new Raspberry Pi v2.1 cameras, as they don't require as much power (both amperes and processing power), and they have a smaller footprint than most USB webcams.
