What is the difference between Wi-Fi and wireless security cameras?
A wireless home security camera, also known as a Wi-Fi camera, transmits its footage over Wi-Fi and is powered by AC power. This means it must be plugged into an outlet using a power cable. A wireless camera isn't wire-free; rather, it's called a wireless camera because it uses wireless internet (Wi-Fi).
Do wireless security cameras need Internet?
If you're using a camera that records to the cloud, then it will require the internet to function. However, if your cameras can record to an SD card, hard drive, or local network storage, then they should be able to function even if they're not connected to the internet.
Do wireless CCTV cameras need power?
Several wireless security cameras do need to be connected to a power source to function. So despite having wireless transmitters, they still aren't exactly wireless.
Is it better to have wired or wireless security cameras?
The choice between wired and wireless security cameras depends on factors like your location, installation preferences, desired features, and budget.
