Wired vs Wireless CCTV Cameras

Whether you are looking to install a security camera for your home or business, ensuring you get the best features and video quality is vital. You can get these by installing either a wired or a wireless CCTV camera, but you must be thinking, what is the difference between the two? 

Wired Security Cameras

Wired CCTV cameras require connecting cables from the camera to a recorder to your router. There are two main types of wired security cameras. 

HD-over-Coax security cameras 

These work by connecting different types of cables to power the cameras and also record any footage captured. 

IP security cameras 

These security cameras offer the best video quality; they use ethernet cables to power the cameras and record any video footage.

Overall they both require cables for power, a great internet connection and video transmission. They are also highly reliable and are fully capable of supporting larger systems. 

Wireless Security Systems

These are perfect for those looking for a more convenient, flexible and easy to use solution. There are not as many cables involved as they require a power source. They transmit footage wirelessly and stores it in the cloud, making it easy for you to access it anywhere. 

The wireless security system is excellent for homeowners and those who are constantly travelling, so they can keep an eye on their property when they are not at home.
