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.
