Wireless Security Cameras System


How to Choose the Perfect Home Security Camera System

Home security camera systems allow you monitor activity in and around your house. Whether you want to monitor your children while they are in the other room, or the handyman as he works around your valuables, or even monitor the outside of your home for suspicious activity, a home security camera system is invaluable. If you have not yet chosen to do so, installing a home security camera system is imperative to providing a peace of mind for you and your family. For those individuals who are currently in the market for a home security camera system, there are some things to consider to help you find the perfect product for you and your family’s needs.

Wired or Wireless

While wired or wireless home security cameras will typically provide you with the same results, the biggest difference is the installation. If you hardwire all of the cameras with video and power cables, it can not only take a long time to install, but it can cost a lot of money as you may have to cut into walls or floors to do this properly. Also, if you are not handy, you will need to hire a professional to do this, which can also run a pretty penny. On the other hand, a wireless system is quick and easy to install and can be done by anyone, tech savvy or not. While wireless camera systems will run on batteries to avert the need to run any wiring, it’s a good idea to hook up the power cables if you plan on monitoring 24/7. Changing batteries can become a hassle, so it may be worth it to plug the cameras into a power source to avert this. Luckily, power outlets can be found all throughout and around the house, whereas video cables must be run through walls, ceilings, attics, or basements. Since wireless security camera systems transfer all video monitoring wirelessly, it makes more sense for DIYers to choose this type of system of a wired system where you would have to run power AND video wiring throughout the house.


The type and number of cameras you will need will depend on your needs. Do you plan to monitor every door to the outside plus every room, or do you just want to monitor the front and back doors? Also, if you plan on monitoring the outside, it’s wise to think about an infrared camera that offers night vision so you can spot any suspicious activity in the dark. Finally, do you just want the cameras hooked up to a monitor so you can see what’s going on at that current time, or do you want the camera system to include a DVR so you can record activity and play back as necessary? Once you get an idea for what your personal security needs are, you can choose the number and type of cameras you will need to suit those issues.
