Wired Vs. Wireless Security Cameras: Which One Suits Your Needs

Any homeowner is concerned about home security and protection. You want your family to be safe and your home secure. Even if you live in the safest area of your town, it’s still nice to have peace of mind with a great security system set up. Here at SPL Security we specialise in providing exactly those kinds of systems, and security cameras are an important feature. Just like the majority of gadgets these days, there are plenty of different varieties to choose from, and the main battle in the camera arena is that of wired versus wireless. We will always advise on which we think is best for your set up but here is some basic information regarding wired versus wireless security cameras.

Wired versus wireless security cameras

One of the best benefits of wireless systems is that a large area of a property is able to cover without the problem finding outlets and having long lengths of cabling to complete the job. With a strong Wi-Fi signal, you can cover the entirety of your home without having to worry about bulky additions to walls.

On the other side of the coin, something that a wired system can give you is consistency. Anyone who lives in a house where Wi-Fi frequently drops in and out of rooms will know that a wired connection to TVs and computers is the only way to go, and that is the same for wired security.

Wireless systems tend to offer more smart features that can be accessed by tablets and smartphones. For people who like to keep abreast of their security situation when away from home, being able to drop in using a phone to check things out is a massive plus.

And one final benefit of wired systems, is the simple fact that they tend to be cheaper. Not having to use various outlets and wires means that the price is lower than wireless, but you are essentially getting the same degree of security for a lower cost.
