WIRED OR WIRELSS CANERAS?
My customers always ask me about this and wonder if they should purchase wireless smart cameras or wired smart cameras?
What is the difference and what are the benefits and basically what are the cons and pros of each camera?
I m telling you a same advice I would give to my family and friends and my own customers.
Beacuse there is nothing worst than buying a product and installing it on the wall and after few day finding out this is the wrong product for what you needed!
WIRED SMART CAMERAS
Before buying small cameras for your HOME or BUSINESS and getting all excited and drilling holes in your walls ask yourself these questions please!
Number one question is are you going to monitor the place and use the camera all day or you just need to know when the delivery person delivered your packge?
For example if you own a store or a business where customers walk in and out all day and you also need to record everything for security purposes I would suggest a wired smart camera .
Beacuse wireless cameras normally run on a lithium battery and they have a life time of a year or two or 3 years and after that you have to probebly change them or replace them with new ones.
so if you own a business and you have to constantly record record and monitor those batteries would not last you very long .
How ever with a smart camera that is plugged in and connected all day you wouldn't worry about batteries life time anymore.
How ever if you are buying a home smart camera for your back yard or garage or for your cottage you probebly don't need to monitor it all day and all night.
Beacuse you can set them up to only record when events happens such as when someone walks in and enter your property like the mail man or a delivery person .so there sn't really a need to record everything all day long.
WIRELESS SMART CAMERAS
Another important factor to keep in mind when buying smart cameras is where is the camera going to be used?
Let me explain it with a great example. Most parents buy a smart camera for the baby's room or kids rooms to keep an eye on them.
In this case a simple wired smart camera would do the job .beacuse you can easily set it anywhere in the room or a book shelf or etc.
But if you need a smart camera for the front door you probebly need to set it up somewhere on the wall or corner of the roof or somewhere that isn't easily accessible for visitors to reach or to disable!
So probebly wireless smart cameras would be a better choice in this case
Another factor to keep in mind is the power source..depending on where you would like to put the cameras you want to make sure there is power source for them to operate.
If you own a property or own a business and need to protect the it with cameras from few diffrent angles or from diffrent entry points it might just creat more work to use extention power cords all over the place and it's just more headaches than convenient!
Although wired cameras are typically little bid cheaper...if you planing to put few around the house it just make sense to go with the wireless one
It will just make your life that much easier to set up and install.
If you are buying a camera for inside to check on the KIDS or Mayne your pets it's a lot easier to get a WIRED camera and plug and good to go .
But if you are thinking for protecting outside your property or garage or etc we strongly suggest WIRELESS smart camera s
Hopefully this gives you a good idea and helpfull to make a right decision for your home or business.
