Wireless Camera Systems - Are They Perfect For Your Surveillance Needs?

Jan 4, 2008
How times have changed the advancement of technology in the recent years has revolutionised so many aspects of people's lives. The security industry has undergone radical changes in technology and today's systems are excellent. The advent of the computer and the advancements over the last twenty years has been huge and with wireless technology available the security camera systems have been overhauled. These systems are now a common part of many people's homes or business, how do they work and what are the wireless camera systems.

They operate using the wireless technology available for any pc network. To get the system operational you will need a pc, wireless camera, router and some surveillance software. These systems are now at the cutting edge of technology and are becoming more and more advanced. The feeds from the wireless cameras can be directed in color straight to your TV or monitor and can even send color footage straight to your video recorder.

Some of the systems are so easy to setup it is quoted that they can be installed and running within 10 minutes. Installation is a simple process, just mount the cameras in the position where you want them to point, plug them into the power source, connect your video receiver into the power source and there is your wireless camera system installed. Obviously this is a very basic setup and they can be more sophisticated than this. Usually the wireless networks will transmit up to a radius of 100 feet and it can transmit through floors, doors, walls and ceilings.

If you want to step up a level with your system then you may wish to have a radio controlled unit or also an outdoor night time wireless system. Whatever system you choose the principals of the wireless setup remains the same with the wireless transmitter for the audio and video. It is also possible to boost the wireless signals and get a long range transmitter, where as the standard transmitter length will be around 100ft the long range wireless transmitter will be around 1000 feet. If this is a requirement for your system then this will come at a premium as it is rather more expensive than the standard transmitter. For the top end camera systems you can get a transmitter that will broadcast up to 1 mile, should be unnecessary for the everyday user though.

Make sure if you are purchasing a unit for outdoors you get a suitable product in terms of the environment. Don't buy an indoor camera system and put it outdoors, there are special systems that will be made just for outdoors, the indoor ones will not last if they get wet or the temperatures drop. It is also possible to get radio controlled wireless camera systems, if you have the cameras positioned and would like to move them if they are fixed you would have to go out and manually reposition the camera. The radio controlled cameras allow you to move the direction of the camera from the control centre to which every area you would like to monitor within that camera range.
