Northeast Remote Surveillance and Alarm, LLC Wireless security cameras explained, wireless security cameras seem to be confusing among customers. The wireless part is describing the way the video camera image is transmitted to the digital video recorder or live viewing screen. The wireless ip security camera and transmitting equipment must be plugged into an electrical source or powered with an alternative source such as solar panels with battery backup or a generator system with a battery supply.
For residential use on a small home interior wireless ip security cameras can be programmed to work on a router and plugged in anywhere. For outdoor use wireless cameras become more difficult due the fact they could easily be unplugged, the power supplies are not designed for use in the weather and the cords included are usually too short to make an interior connection. The wires also lack the heavy duty insulation protecting the internal conductors from weather and chaffing. In our experience, if you need to run a wire for power you are better off running a wire capable of transporting the video signal back to the recorder as well. We strongly recommend Outdoor Cat 6 wire for IP cameras or Outdoor rated Siamese 18/2 with coax for High Definition Analog Cameras. Some people prefer video baluns for HD analog camera systems but we find it is easier to make a long term professional quality water and moisture proof connection using coax cable with compression connectors and dielectric grease.
Our commercial grade wireless installations utilize Internet Service Provider grade equipment with IP security cameras. Capabilities of this equipment include building to building or multiple buildings, light poles etc. Projects we have designed and completed include town wide camera projects, business campuses, education campuses, industrial properties, commercial properties and more. Depending on terrain effective use can be up to 20 miles or more.
Dielectric grease allows the wire connection to be protected from moisture and the elements without diminishing the video signal or electric connection. We strongly recommend this procedure and implement it on all of our outdoor surveillance camera system connections. We offer 3-year warranties on all of our installations and we take the extra steps required to minimize service calls.
