Through the years, the technology involving surveillance and security had evolved so much. Try to look for analog CCTV cameras that were used 10 years ago and you’ll see the huge difference between them and the modern cameras. Try to look for old recording devices used for surveillance and you’ll get the same comparison.
Today, you’ve got the Digital Video Recording system and cameras. The cameras are more sophisticated – smaller in size but definitely bigger in functions. In most cases, if you are going to install surveillance systems for your homes, you’ll have cameras which will be wired to the DVR system. Lately though, many are opting for wireless cameras to go with their DVR systems. In fact, wireless cameras are becoming quite popular among home security systems. Why is this so? Well, for the fact that most homes don’t have easily accessible walls, doors, windows, basements or attics for installing wires.
Mostly homeowners would opt to include surveillance system installation upon building their homes. But, in the case of older homes and those which opted for surveillance system installation too late into the building of their homes, wireless cameras are the perfect option. Some experts, however, cautioned that wireless cameras have drawbacks. These include maintenance of batteries for each camera. The good thing is that most batteries for these products can last up to 3 years of regular use. And features like long range sensor outweighed the drawbacks.
Surely, wireless cameras have great benefits especially if you have a 5 or 10-year old house and you want to install surveillance system as the latest addition to your humble abode. And if this set-up can keep your home protected, I think it’s worth it to check on batteries once in a while.
