The tale of the evolution of security surveillance solutions from being bulky hardware set up to wireless security cameras is quite fascinating. It is a display of the advancements in technology that by time has reinvented the appearance, utility, functionality, and most importantly the applications and purpose of security monitoring CCTV.
As a quick recap, security cameras in the very beginning used to work on the basis of electric power supply and a monitor and recorder connected through data wired to broadcast live videos. Gradually, IP cameras and NVR came into the picture that eliminated the need of connecting cameras to the recorders. IP cameras were connected with the recorder through a network cable that sent the recorded data over the internet. And sometimes later, wireless security cameras were introduced in the market.
A product of innovation, wireless security cameras leverage the wireless network to transmit live footage to the receiver connected to a display screen. Moreover, such cameras are capable of broadcasting recorded audio-videos directly to the cloud without any intervention of a recording device. Wireless video surveillance systems offer convenient installation and streamlined operations that make them more popular amongst customers.
Working criterion of wireless security camera
Wireless cameras operate either on batteries or power supplies to record visuals and audio but they are all wire-free in transferring the recorded data to the receiver. Such cameras translate the recorded video into digital data and use a wireless connection to send it to the receiver, where it is stored. Prominently there are two types of wireless connections: Wi-Fi or radio transmission that are used by wireless cameras for data transfer. Users can access the recorded data through a video management system that comes built-in in smart devices such as desktops, mobile phones, laptops, and tabs.
Wireless security cameras also deliver the option of cloud and local storage. Cloud storage allows users to upload recorded data directly on the cloud servers and gain remote access to the data for utilization from anywhere at any time. Wireless cameras feature a built-in SD card slot for local storage. The data stored in an SD card can be transferred to other devices through hard drives or USB cables and remains less vulnerable to hacking.
