Wired vs wireless security cameras, which one is better?
Here we’ll walk you through the pros and cons of both wired and wireless security cameras and systems, and help you pick the most suitable one within several minutes!
#1. Understand Wired CCTV Security Cameras
Wired security cameras, such as PoE IP cameras and hard-wired analog cameras, need wires to realize video transmission and power supply.
Wired PoE IP security cameras typically use Cat 5 or Cat 6 Ethernet wires to communicate with your home network router or NVR. In other words, you can just use an Ethernet cable to connect to your router or NVR for both data and power transmission.
Traditional hard-wired analog security cameras need 2 cables, one for power and one coaxial cable connecting to the DVR for data transmission.
While wired PoE security cameras can work standalone, analog surveillance cameras need to connect with the DVR. The images of PoE security cameras are much clearer than that of analog type.
You’ve got the 2 main types of wired security cameras. Let’s view the positives and negatives of wired CCTV security IP cameras.
Wired security camera pros:
No interference from nearby devices
More stable data transmission
Ideal for several zones of protection, good for large homes
Hard-wired CCTV security camera cons:
More challenging to install
Drilling holes needed to run wires throughout your home
#2. Introduction to Wireless (WiFi) Security Cameras
Wireless security cameras are typically divided into 2 types: battery or solar powered wire-free security cameras and traditional wireless security cameras.
The video transmission of both security camera types is totally wireless. The biggest difference between them is the way in getting the power supply.
Battery or solar powered wireless security cameras are powered by batteries or solar panel, which makes them zero wire. This type of security cameras is the most portable and easy-to-install home smart security cameras.
Traditional wireless security cameras need to be plugged in to get power. The communication between the camera and your home router is also through the wireless signal. (more…)
Heard about all the talk of starlight cameras? Sounds rather high-tech and seems to be a big leap forward in the night vision, doesn’t it?
However, after hours of Google search for starlight Wiki or buying guide, you may still confused about what exactly is the starlight IP cameras, how does the starlight security cameras work, what’s the difference between the starlight and IR night vision, and the cost, of course.
Here, we will share with you the most exhaustive and leading insights into starlight CCTV cameras from a senior hardware engineer, Daniel, who has been in the industry for over 20 years and knows all ins and outs of the starlight cameras.
After months’ waiting in line and hours’ interview, finally, here is what we got. Click the sections below to see what the expert has to say about starlight CCTV cameras.
What Are Starlight Cameras?
As the name suggests, starlight cameras could see objects clearly even with the weak illumination of mere starlight – normally above 0.01 Lux, by using the specialized starlight standard sensors, like the Sony Starvis and Starlight sensors.
What does that mean to you?
You know, human eyes could hardly identify anything when the illumination goes below 20 Lux. Well, the starlight cameras, with its 0.01 Lux super night vision, could give you sharper and clearer images than your eyes could see in the dark night. And that means “see things clearly that your eyes can’t see”!
Generally, you will find two types of starlight cameras on the market: the one that records with black and white images with high clarity, and the one produces color images just as your eyes could normally see in the daytime. The key lies in the sensor that the CCTV camera uses. (more…)
