Wireless technology continues to increase in popularity and demand because it is proven more cost-effective than traditional analog/cable technology. Though wireless cameras cost more than traditional analog CCTV and IP cameras, they eliminate the need to spend on cables and wires. Also, going wireless gives you the freedom to place your cameras and equipment where you really need them to be.
Here’s how wireless camera systems can benefit you:
- Less clutter – Wired cameras need cable connections to transmit image data to the recorder and receive power from a power source. This can be inconvenient for large buildings that need more cameras; more cameras mean more cables and wires, and more cables and wires mean more clutter along walls, ceilings, and floors. These not only look unattractive but can also pose potential hazards, not to mention the wear on the exposed lines.
- Simpler set-up and installation – Wireless cameras are easier to install because you don’t need to unroll yards of cables to connect them to the recording units and with other cameras. You simply need to place the transmitters, sensors, and receivers correctly and strategically into their positions and you can start recording right away.
- Less electric consumption – Unlike wired cameras that need to be connected to a direct electrical power source, most wireless cameras run on batteries that you only have to change periodically to sustain its performance.
