Some of us are old enough to remember when phones had a curly chord securing a handled earpiece to the dial pad. Those were the days: Being a teenager trying to have a very important conversation about high school shenanigans while standing in a kitchen corner, while the rest of the family would walk by. Ah. The wonder years.
Then, technology took over. First came cordless home phones. Then cell phones. Then TVs. No longer would we have an unsightly mess of cables hanging from our wall unit. Then we got cordless headphones. Because who wants to listen to music with a cable hanging down from our head?
Say hello to wireless security cameras
It was only a matter of time before this trend reached security systems; and for a while, it’s been useful. However, contrary with what happened with telephones, it hasn’t completely replaced wired installations. Why is that?
Benefits and drawbacks of a wireless system:
The convenience of wireless electronics is undeniable: It looks better, it’s portable, you don’t have to pre-install a security network all over your business. However, it fails in some substantial aspects: quality of feed, and reliability.
When you have a wireless camera, the images that come through may be lower in quality; while if you have the same problem with a wired system, the issue may be easily fixed by doing simple work in its infrastructure.
Also, signal interference from other tech devices may disrupt your feed. That said, the instances when this occur are rare. To maximize your peace of mind about it, you have two options: call a regular Joe Blow who can install security cameras, or hire sophisticated engineers in information technology who can do it for you.
