4 Ways You’ll Benefit From Wireless Security Cameras

Anyone who owns property know the uneasy feeling that goes along with leaving your space unattended.  While camera systems have long  been a useful way to keep a watchful eye on your home and/or business while you’re away, installing a wireless surveillance system offers additional benefits that mitigate many of the issues that run concurrent to a basic version.  Not only can they provide significant options for location, but they offer the same standard features as their tethered counterparts — such HD recording, infrared night vision and motion detection.  State of the art surveillance technology will afford you, your colleagues and/family members with the peace of mind to focus less on your property and more on whatever you schedule warrants.  To get you started, we’re discussing 4 benefits of wireless camera surveillance.

No Wires, No worries

The most overt benefit of a wireless camera system is eliminating any need to worry about wires.  A wireless system provides you the ability to place your camera(s) wherever you think is best without the frustration of having to be concerned about making sure an outlet is in proximity.  Additionally, eliminating wires not only removes unflattering aesthetic eyesores, but makes it much, much easier to conceal and/or hide your unit if you’re using it for security — nothing identifies a security camera more than a large, thick wire running down the side of your home or building.

Interactive Surveillance

One of the neatest components or a wireless camera system is that it allows you to connect your tablet or even cell phone to monitor your property remotely.  The connection will allow you to watch live video feeds from every camera you set up.  Just think of the possible benefits — external surveillance could allow you to identify unwanted individuals on your property while internal cameras are a great way to keep an eye on caregivers who may be watching over loved ones while you’re away — allowing you to make sure proper care is given.

Options

Flexibility is an advantage wireless cameras bring to the table.  Not only can you place the unit wherever you need it, but you’ll have a myriad of settings and options at your disposal.  Additionally, you’ll be able to physically relocate the unit to different locations depending on your specific needs — without having to account for pesky wires.  You’ll save yourself a myriad of frustration by having the option to maneuver the unit and fasten it to high and/or low locations that typically don’t have adequate power sources near by.

What About the Receiver?

A wireless camera receiver can be located within ranges of 650-feet to approximately 10 miles away from the dominant unit and still pick up signal — albeit the actual distance will alter depending on the specific unit.  Additionally, it will also be able to infiltrate as many as seven walls and most objects — including wood, glass, metals, plastics.

Home Security Systems | 5 Best Locations for Wireless Security Cameras

Park Place Installations offers the best home security systems and home automation systems available, anywhere in Western New York. Combining wireless security cameras with a home automation package allows you to keep an eye on your home, and ensure the safety of your family and belongings.

So you know you want to get moving on a new home surveillance camera system, but you don’t know where to start. You know you want security cameras on your home, but you’re don’t need Tony Montana’s level of surveillance either. So how many cameras do you need? Where should they go? Park Place Installations has your back mang.

 

Our best advice would be to start with 3-5 cameras, depending on how big your house is, and the layout. The goal, place cameras on the first level of your home, where intruders are most likely to attempt to enter. You can have the best camera and automation system on the market, but if it isn’t in the right spot you’re wasting your money.

Here are the best locations to place wireless security cameras.

  1. Front Door– No brainer here. It has been known amongst the home security industry that the majority of home break ins occur through the front door. Your camera should provide you with a full view from either the ceiling or opposite wall of both the doorway, and porch or entryway.
  2. Back Door– Burglars are not extremely creative. The next most popular entry point for an intruder is the back door, which usually has direct access to an important room. Your family room, stairs, basement, or kitchen could have direct access from the back, so remember to stick a camera somewhere on the ceiling that gives a full clear view of the back door.
  3. Side & Back Windows– It doesn’t look normal for someone to enter a home through a window. Typically a burglar will enter through an open window if it isn’t visible from the street. You’ll want to have your cameras monitor the windows that are along the sides of your home, or in the back, that might have access to your expensive belongings.
  4. Basement Access– If your home has a basement door entryway, this is a good place to put a camera. If you have windows that could be broken into easily, or a door that may be obscured from view, mount a camera in the basement that provides a broad sweep of the room’s entryways.
  5. Back Yard– An external camera mounted to give you a view of your private back yard is a good idea. You can mount from your roof or from a porch roof, hidden and out of reach. This enables you to see intruders from further away, and allows you to keep an eye on kids when they are playing in the back yard remotely, using home automation.
