Wired vs. Wireless

When it comes to outdoor security cameras, the question always pops up whether you should go wired or wireless. The wired outdoor security camera uses wiring to connect the camera to the receiver, very precise and simple. The wireless outdoor security camera, on the other hand, uses more advanced technology. These wireless outdoor security cameras use radio transmitters to send the videos to the receiver.

Wired outdoor security cameras not only have bulky and obtrusive wiring, but these wiring will make it complicated to install because you have to have nearby outlets, wire placements, and all that. Since wireless outdoor security cameras no longer require wiring, it will be hidden in the shadows, and also, it will be easy to install wireless outdoor security cameras.

Set It Up

Before you install your wireless outdoor security camera, you will first need these items to set it up:
  1. a broadband internet connection or WI-FI router
  2. a wireless recorder and receiver device
  3. a web-enabled computer, tablet or mobile phone
  4. batteries for the security camera
All these will help you get ready to set up your wireless outdoor security cameras. Here are three steps to set it up...

  • Connect the wireless camera to the WI-FI by clicking a button found at the back of the device. Once connected, you will be able to link it to your recorder and receiver device and access the videos through your computer, tablet or mobile phone.
  • If your wireless device has no button that connects it straight to the WI-FI, then you will need an Ethernet cable to plug (this plug outlet is also found at the back of the wireless camera) it to your WI-FI router or broadband. Then you can link it to the recorder and receiver device.
  • Never forget to put in the batteries to turn your wireless outdoor security camera on.

 With these simple steps, your wireless outdoor security camera is ready to use.


Decide the Location

One reason why it is so easy to install wireless outdoor security cameras is that you can decide on any location and any angle. Because it is wireless, you don't need to worry about installing it within range of an outlet. Because it is wireless, you can position it in a way that provides wider angles for surveillance. Because it is wireless, it is now much easier to keep it unnoticed and unharmed by intruders.


Install

Once you have your wireless outdoor security camera set up and you find the perfect location for it, it is now time to install it. The installing process is also easy because you only need a few tools. If installing on a soft surface, you can simply use a screwdriver to secure the screws of the wireless outdoor security camera in place. However, if you install it on harder surfaces, then you will need a drill to drive the screws inside the wall.
If you want it to be in perfect position, then using a pencil to draw where the screws will go in is a good idea.


Result
