Wireless vs. Wired Security Cameras: Which Should You Choose?

cam1With the advent of wireless security cameras (also known as IP cameras), many homeowners and consumers become fixated on the idea of being “wire free.” While wireless security cameras do offer benefits in some situations, they are not the end-all-be-all solution to everyone’s surveillance needs.

Let’s begin by settling the concept that wireless cameras are not completely “wireless”– these cameras do not need the standard video cable to work. However, wireless cameras still need to be powered, and power is sent through a wire. Any wireless camera will still need to be plugged into an outlet or other power source, unless it is battery operated (which is a completely different discussion and would require the exchange of batteries on a near constant basis).

cam3.jpgAnother downside to IP cameras is their strain on network bandwidth. The average consumer does not have a commercial-grade network that can handle the constant streaming and recording of 6+ high-definition security cameras. Multiple IP cameras on a standard home network would bog down the user’s Internet speed tremendously. Wired cameras are routed into a DVR which does not use nearly as many resources as individual IP cameras. Some IP cameras use an NVR, which is similar to a DVR, but this will not solve the issue of each camera needing a power source. The most viable advantage that wireless cameras have is their transmission length: a wireless camera system can be transmitted across an environment or terrain that would be extremely difficult or infeasible to run traditional camera cable across.

cam2Wired cameras appear to be more labor-intensive to install than their wireless counterpart, but their reliability and sustainability far make up for the installation effort. Once installed, wired cameras do not require an Internet connection to capture and record; they can also be installed with little to no networking or IT knowledge.

If you are debating whether wired or wireless cameras are best for you, call or stop by Mid Florida Audio & Video today for an estimate or consultation.
