We have gotten quite a few people asking about wireless cameras lately and we would like to go over a few things to know about wireless cameras. We will give you some pros and cons surrounding wireless security cameras and then you can decide if you think wireless is the way to go for you.
Pros: The biggest advantage of wireless cameras is that there is no cable to run to the DVR. This makes it very convenient when you need to put a camera in an area that it would be a little harder to run cable into the wall. For example, on a cement or brick wall. These cameras only need a power outlet close to them to operate. If there is no outlet the camera will not be able to operate as it will have no power.
Cons: Wireless cameras are not completely wireless. As explained before they still must have power with in a small distance so that the power chord will reach. This can be a problem for some people when it comes to their idea of wireless. Another issue with wireless cameras is the fact that just like baby monitors and cordless phones they communicate through frequency waves. If there is anything in the area of the cameras that is putting of the same or even higher frequency waves it can interfere with your cameras causing a disturbance and possibly loss of video feed. This also means that they are able to be hacked by people who know about hijacking radio frequencies and can be viewed by outside of the area that they are meant to be viewed. You are also limited on the number of cameras you can have for the same reason. If you have to many cameras all communicating at the same time it can cause interference with the other cameras as well. For this reason we recommend wired cameras.
In any case you can make the decision yourself. For some people wireless is the perfect solution and for others they are not. If you want more information about cameras and installation please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions you might have. Let us protect what matters to you!
Many of us get comfortable in our lives with our day to day routines and commonality of every day being just like the one before. Then someone comes along and violates our comfort and “Peace of mind” by breaking into our home, business or even our vehicle as it sits in front of our home. Your home is supposed to be the one place you feel the safest and in today’s society crime is on the rise and it happens more than ever before. You wake up in the morning and go about your everyday routine and as you leave your home to go to your job, take the kids to school or even just to take care of daily tasks like running errands and buying groceries and in your very own driveway is the car you work so hard to pay for in shambles. Glass everywhere, the door open and your personal items scattered because items of monetary value is what they seek and they have taken what they want and left the rest behind. Your heart sinks and you feel violated. Even though most of are smart enough to bring in the items that thieves look for so they aren’t stolen while we sleep, it still feels like an invasion of privacy and most of all it cost us money to repair or replace the damaged parts of the car. Car break ins are common and no matter how or where it happens it is a very uncomfortable feeling. Even more uncomfortable is if someone invades your home or business. Coming home from work to find your home wide open and your most valuable items taken right from under your nose.
Being in the security industry we hear all the time that “Surveillance cameras are for businesses not for homes.” “Security cameras are to expensive for the everyday application of a home.” This is just simply not true. The story above happens on a daily basis all around the world. It happened to you at one time or to someone you know and love. You call the police and they come out and fill out a report and you have a choice… file a claim with insurance or replace the items yourself and save yourself the insurance cost increase because of course insurance is available but if you use it they penalize you by increasing your rates. Why are these the only options? Well because without proof there is nothing the police can do.
Here is another scenario, after finding your car or home disheveled and broken, you go into your house and go to the security footage. You now have something to go on! You have video proof of what happened and when. This is the proof the police need to track down the thieves that have broken into your car or home. They can take finger prints and unless you have something to identify the person who has violated your privacy or unless they are a repeat offender and in the police database, there is not much the police can or will do about it. It is a very sad fact.
Time and time again we hear stories of vandals, thieves and criminals being caught on camera and when that happens it brings us back our “Peace of mind.” Justice is served and one less criminal will get away with violating the laws that are in place to protect those of us who actually work for the things we have. We install surveillance systems in homes and in businesses and often time we get calls from our customers that because of our system, they were able to catch the intruder that took away their comfort in a split second when they invaded their space. If you have had this happen to you or someone you love has or even if it hasn’t happened but you want to ensure it doesn’t, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to come out and give you a free security evaluation and bring you the “Peace of mind” you so rightly deserve whether it is in your home at night, while you are away at work, on vacation or even just out for a couple hours running errands.

Homes as well as businesses face a very big challenge and that is dealing with the word security. In this era there is a huge need for a term called “planning your security”. A good security plan helps you to be safe and secure to all the threats up to appropriate levels. We as humans have become so security savvy that we tend to protect everything and believe me it’s a need. Starting from protecting your mobile phone to installing antivirus in your laptop to secure your information to having insurance to secure your assets as well as your own self.
Securing your home or offices with technological equipment is also necessary. Technology helps you to be better secured. Many types of equipment such as wireless cameras, CCTV, led TV, security camera installations etc have come up in discussions. They are of a great use as they are one time installations and help you protect your assets in a better way than humans can.
Wireless cameras are coming up after use of CCTV cameras and have become a lot more popular than them. These are very cheap as well as a perfect solution for people who wish to monitor other people living in their house for a short period or in some situations when a house is for rent. It is also a great solution for renters because it does not require permission to be installed as long as it is totally wireless.
From technological point of view we have come up with a solution that provides you with wireless cameras. These basically are cameras which help to transmit information with the help of a radio band and they work the same as CCTV cameras with out wires being used. These are more useful because:
- Easily mounted – you can easily mount it anywhere and because it doesn’t need wiring at all it can be used as hidden camera.
- Low cost- these have lower cost than CCTV cameras as a whole.
- Easily accessible
- Provides seamless video streaming
- You can transmit commands and functions.
- A wireless camera is also a great option for seasonal monitoring and surveillance. For example, one can observe a pool or patio in summer months and take down the camera in the winter.
Security Surveillance System provides you with both analogue as well as digital camera solutions.
Analogue cameras transfer your information using digital radio frequencies vs. wireless cameras which transfer information in encoded format over high bandwidth.
Either way you go, as long as you have the ability to monitor your investment then you can go about your life knowing that at any time you can trust that your home or business is being watched.
