Why Choose Wired Security CCTV Cameras?
Choosing a CCTV camera for your home or your business could be a big deal especially when you are very much concerned about the safety and security of your family and your property. Now that crime is as its peak, you can never be safe enough which is why more and more homes and business establishments use security cameras.
But the debate as to whether a wired security camera or a wireless model is the best choice is one of the most common concerns of homeowners and business owners. While the popularity of wired cameras continues to impress consumers, smart individuals still choose traditional wired security CCTV cameras over wireless types. This is so because of the following reasons:
Wired setups are technically more reliable compared to wired systems. Wired CCTV units transmit signals with the use of cables and wires to a storage system while wireless systems rely through signals that are transmitted from the antenna to the receiver. There are so many ways that signals from a wireless system may be interfered; aside from physical obstructions routers and other devices that transmit signals may also interfere from the transfer of data.
And since wired cameras are more reliable, the video quality is better. You can clearly see your subject as well as the surrounding areas with a video recorded from a wired security camera. Wired systems also offer more features related to video image like an automatic focus, better video resolution, farther night vision capabilities, facial recognition, missing items or image recognition and so many more. These are just some of the most important features why more and more consumers are choosing wired systems compared to wireless units.
Some homeowners and business owners are hesitant to use wired systems since power and video cables may be easily cut by intruders since wiring is often exposed. There are however new cabling systems like “Siamese” cables that combine power cables with video cables that may be installed discretely from the camera; this will offer better security as well as practicality since you can basically install a wire system anywhere even when there are no power outlets available nearby.
Wired camera systems are often available with 6 or 8 camera units, a receiver, remote controls and cables which offer versatility and savings for the homeowner or business owners. This system is ideal for indoor and outdoor CCTV surveillance as well as home or business security.
Wired cameras are built to be more durable and more resistant to outdoor weather compared to wireless systems. Most wireless cameras look fragile and are mostly made for indoor use while wired systems come with an all-weather housing which can still record in perfect quality even when there is rain, wind, snow and other terrible weather conditions.
Wired systems are very affordable and are often available on a set providing users more savings in the long run. Installation may be costly for wired systems but all the benefits clearly outweigh this disadvantage.
