Is It Better to Install Wired or Wireless Security Cameras?
At Engineered Alarm Solutions, our experts always recommend wired commercial and home security cameras when compared to wireless options. This is because wireless cameras are far more dependable. Wireless home security cameras are often promoted from telecommunication services or chosen because of their seemingly simple installation, but they don’t offer the same level of dependability that can be achieved with hardwired cameras.
Wired Home Security Cameras vs Wireless Systems
The main benefit of wireless home security cameras is the ease in which they can be set up around your property. In some cases, the security camera installation is less invasive because there is virtually no going through walls or ceilings.
However, wired camera installation can also be quite simple depending on the existing infrastructure on your property. After security cameras installation, wired cameras offer more reliability and security. Wired cameras cannot be jammed, hacked, or overwhelmed like with wireless cameras. When bandwidth-use increases, real-time viewing and communication with wireless cameras is slowed down and the connection can quickly become compromised. Overtime, the costs of wireless cameras can add up, since in many cases you will have to pay for monthly cloud storage subscriptions in addition to the costs of hardware and installation.
Why Choose Wired Home Security Cameras
When you have reliable wired home security cameras installed around your property, you can increase your peace of mind knowing that you can access real-time views of your property and communicate through intercom systems without delays from poor connection or interruptions from burglars. Wired security cameras can still be connected to your smart devices for enhanced access and control but without any delays of a WiFi connection.
