Wireless CCTV

How does a wireless camera work? Wireless CCTV cameras send their video and audio to a receiver via wireless transmission, not a cable. It’s worth noting that the camera will still need power, this part isn’t wireless. Either the camera will need to be plugged into a power source (the easiest option) or in some cases, they can connect to a battery if the camera is set up for this (the not to straightforward option). Using a battery isn’t ideal as the battery for your wireless CCTV camera will drain quickly, depending on usage. The battery may run out right before any of the good stuff starts to happen!

Using a battery isn’t ideal as the battery for your wireless CCTV camera will drain quickly, depending on usage. The battery may run out right before any of the good stuff starts to happen!

How to install a wireless camera? Installing a wireless camera is pretty easy and if you’re handy with a drill then you can do it yourself. The first thing to do is to plug everything in and lay it all out on the kitchen table and check that the camera and the receiver are ‘talking’ to each other. This saves you from mounting everything before finding out there’s an issue and you have to take it all down again. Once it’s all working then you can mount your cameras into position and run the cables to a power source.

Can you make a wireless camera wired? As a rule, no, most wireless cameras will not have this option unless it’s specifically built in. If you suspect that you may want to go wired in the future, then go wired now. Wired is far more reliable and will produce a higher quality image without signal interruptions. Don’t forget you can easily go the other way if needs be – convert a wired camera to wireless by using one of our transmitter and receiver sets.

Can you hack a wireless camera? This issue has been in the news a few times, read more about a 2016 CCTV camera hack here. Most of these scare stories, however, involve remote access Wifi cameras, which use a slightly different technology. For wireless cameras, it’s highly unlikely that your CCTV camera would be maliciously hacked, but someone with a receiver on the same frequency (2.4GHz) could potentially pick up the signal from a standard analogue wireless camera. Digital wireless cameras, however, are far more secure as they use multiple frequencies to pair the camera and the receiver. So if you’re concerned about someone picking up the signal from your wireless camera then go digital for extra peace of mind.

What is a digital wireless camera? A digital wireless camera is paired to the recording device (such as our LCD monitors) to ensure a clearer signal by using a wide range of frequencies. This reduces the risk of interference from other appliances in your house and makes sure no other users can pick up your camera’s signal. The clearer signal can also work from twice the distance of most analogue devices- up to 100m in direct line of sight with standard antennae.

What is the range for a wireless CCTV camera? This depends on the wireless camera that you’re looking at. We always display the wireless range of the cameras on the listing, measured in metres or kilometres. We sell specialist cameras that can reach huge ranges that are best suited to large properties and farms. If you find that your wireless camera doesn’t have the range you need then you can upgrade it or add a high gain wireless antenna to extend the reach of the wireless signal.

Do I need internet for a wireless security camera? No you don’t need internet for a standard wireless security camera. The wireless part refers to the signal sent from the camera to the receiver. We do have security cameras that use IP technology, which means they can connect to your network enabling remote access, but our standard wireless security cameras found here do not.

Do wireless cameras have to be plugged in? Yes, they do need to be plugged in. The wireless part refers to the signal sent between the camera and the receiver but the camera will still need to be powered. Think of it like a wireless radio - the wireless part refers to how the radio receives the signal, but you still need to power your radio. Like a wireless security camera, this can be down by plugging directly to a power source, or for some cameras, using a battery. Using a direct power source is preferable as batteries don’t last long and will need regular replacing. If you power your wireless camera directly to a power source then you will have uninterrupted footage.

Do wireless cameras need batteries? No they do not, unless they are a battery powered camera. Most of our wireless cameras are just plugged directly to a power source.

Do wireless cameras record? Most wireless cameras will need a separate recording unit such as a DVR to record your footage. Some of our top selling wireless kits have a screen which records to an SD card whilst enabling you to live watch your footage on the portable LCD screen.

Can I buy a hidden wireless camera? Yes, we have hidden wireless cameras too which are ideal for covert filming when you want to catch someone up to no good. Perhaps a neighbour causing damage to your car or a staff member helping themselves to your till. We have wireless pinhole cameras that can be hidden inside of everyday objects so that your subject doesn’t know they’re being recorded.
