Security Cameras – Wireless vs Hard-wired?

Posted by admin in CCTV, Home Security | 0 comments

When deciding on security cameras, there is always the debate between hard-wired or wireless.

Toowoomba Locksmiths always recommend hard-wired and here’s why –

A hard-wired security camera system conveys data to the NVR (recording device) and monitoring system via a cable. This system may take a little longer to set up, but in the end, it has various benefits compared to the wireless systems.

Security Cameras – Wireless vs Hard-wired

As the hard-wired systems are connected to an NVR, they can store a lot more data. A wireless cameras system, only has a sim and SD card to store data on. The hard-wired systems also have a better picture quality, as they do not have to run on radio frequency. Criminals will have difficulties trying to jam hard-wired security cameras compared to a wireless system which runs on a radio frequency. To interfere with a hard-wired system, a criminal would have to cut the cord running directly to the camera which is a very hard task as it is typically in the roof and walls.

Compared to a wireless system where a routine battery change is vital to have the camera recording 24/7, the hard-wired systems are powered by a cord. But what happens when your power is out? Don’t fret you can purchase a backup battery to power your cameras if you were to have a power outage. This allows the camera to still record data and store it on the NVR.

A hard-wired system is also ideal for all home types, no matter how big or small. You can have from 2 to 10 plus cameras on a hard -wired system.

There is also the option to view the hard-wired security cameras on a tv, computer and smartphone. With the flexibility to watch what is happening on holidays and while a work. You can always feel safe your house is being protected.

Hard-wired security camera systems are also the best options for business, with needing to reach multiple angles of a space and have the reliability for over the weekend and night when the store is empty.

No you know why we recommend the hard-wired option.  Contact Toowoomba Locksmiths now to organise your quote!

Posted by admin in Locksmith | 0 comments

Step N Pull Contactless door openers are the best way to reduce the spread and transmission of germs and diseases. With the Covid19 pandemic, these are the best way to ensure that you are safe from many of the germs that can be spread on door handles especially on bathroom and toilet doors.

Step N Pull - In action

The Step N Pull is a contactless door opener that is secured to the bottom of a door and can be easily opened with your foot allowing you to keep germ free. Schools, shopping centres, and businesses are often high traffic areas, with a lot of surfaces being touched by customers, staff, and students. One of these high traffic areas is the bathroom and toilet door handles on swinging doors, the Step N Pull can limit the contact made to these areas and reduce the spread of germs.

To combat the spread of the germs, Toowoomba Locksmiths have recently started to supply a contactless door opener – The Step N Pull.

A lot of people will use some paper towel to pull the door open, a contactless door opener doesn’t just stop the spread of germs, but can also limit you carbon footprint but limiting the amount of paper towels used to open doors.
