Is Wireless Surveillance Right for You?

Is Wireless Surveillance Right for You?

Understanding wireless security systems
Wireless security cameras are a tempting option when looking to purchase a new security system. With all the standard features of a wired security camera, including IR night vision and motion detection (as well as audio monitoring on select models), wireless security products provide convenience without compromise. Just connect your camera to a nearby power source and your security system will be up and running in no time.

Save time and money
No video cables run through building materials or underground.  The only requirement is connecting he camera to an electrical outlet.

Placement flexibility
It’s easy to monitor detached buildings and move your cameras to different locations (provided there is a nearby power source).

Tamper-resistant
Skilled intruders can disrupt a wired security camera by tampering with the video cable.  This is not a worry for wireless systems.

Long distance range
Perfect for large outdoor areas and detached buildings

Wireless cameras can typically transmit video to a receiver up to 500 feet away with a clear line-of-site.  An optional antenna can be used to boost the wireless signal and extend the range even further.

When wireless may not be right for you
The HD wireless security cameras becoming more prominent, the video quality difference between wired and wireless cameras is no longer a determining factor.  But image quality isn’t everything.  Wired security systems can still provide a few other advantages that might be critical to your security monitoring needs.

Need many cameras?
We recommended that no more than four wireless cameras be used on the same system. Doing so increases the risk of signal interference issues.
If your property requires more than four security cameras then consider a wired and wireless hybrid security system.

Where's the power?
Wireless cameras transmit video wirelessly but still need to be plugged in. This means you may have to install a power source near every camera. 

Competing for attention?
Competing signals from other wireless devices (WiFi routers, cordless phone systems, etc.) may create interference and cause a drop in signal strength. 

If you live in a densely populated area, a wireless system might not be right for you. Instead, consider a wired security camera system.

Analog and Digital Wireless Technology
There are two types of wireless cameras - analog and digital. Analog wireless cameras use a separate transmitter to connect them to a digital video recorder (DVR). Digital wireless cameras (or WiFi cameras) connect to the internet and are designed to be used with computers, smartphones or tablets.

How do I power a wireless security camera?
It is important to note that wireless cameras still require electricity to power them and need to be plugged into an electrical outlet.  The term “wireless” refers to the lack of a video cable between the camera and the receiver.  There are wireless security cameras on the market that are battery operated, but they wouldn’t provide 24/7 recording and require plenty of maintenance.

Is the connection secure?
Each wireless camera includes a specific and unique receiver.  Some wireless cameras pair with a single receiver.  Other cameras will come with their own receiver.  This specific pairing:
§  Creates a steady and reliable connection with SignalGuard.
§  Diminishes signal interference using Adaptive Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology.
§  Blocks interception by third parties from picking up the signal.
