You Should Protect Your Home With Wireless Security Cameras

You Should Protect Your Home With Wireless Security Cameras

Protecting their family is the foremost worry on homeowners' minds. Homeowners have the right to feel secure behind their own doors. They search for home security systems, only to come across both wired and wireless security cameras. What's the difference? What's so great about wireless cameras? Serrano Rey has answers for you.

What Are Wireless Security Cameras?

Wireless cameras have one or all three of these things in common:

  • The system uses cell phone frequencies to send signals to a central monitoring office
  • The camera connects to the home's system using WiFi
  • The window and door sensors are connected to the system using the same frequencies

These are powerful points to recommend wireless security systems as opposed to wired systems. There are no wires an intruder can cut, and they don't blink off when the power goes out. So why protect your home with a Serrano Rey wireless system? Here are the advantages of doing so.

Benefits of Using Wireless Cameras

Wireless cameras aren't hooked to a landline, but they must be in range to be picked up by the security system. This gives homeowners the freedom to place them anywhere on their property.

Since the cameras aren't wired, homeowners who have little to none DIY abilities can just place the cameras and then peel off the sticky tape to place the keypad on a wall. No holes drilled in the walls! The system can be monitored from a smart phone or computer in the house. Bonus: the homeowner isn't paying a security company for labor.

The receiver will pick up a signal as far away as ten miles from a camera. That means if homeowners live on a 30-acre farm, the receiver will pick up a signal from the far corners of the property. Homeowners should check the distance before they buy a wireless camera. The receiver will pick up signals from anywhere in the house as well. Homeowners should be aware that such things as baby monitors could interfere with the signal. It hasn't happened to us, but it's a possibility of which buyers should be aware.

Wireless security cameras offer the added benefit of being expandable. Let's say the kids are still small enough to get into everything. Sensors on cabinet doors, the oven door, and the freezer can easily be placed. The monitoring system will allow parents to notice when the little ones escape their babysitter's notice to get into something they shouldn't.

A new camera may be added when the new baby arrives. Mom and Dad will know instantly when the baby cries due to hunger, she needs a change, or she's just bored with playing with the mobile hanging over her crib.

Moving to a larger or smaller home? Take the camera system with you. It's portable and simple to install at your new home.

Homeowners have a choice in security cameras. Night vision security cameras use the same heat-sensing technology used by the police and military. Cameras are also available that only turn on when they sense movement. This is a great battery saver for homeowners. Homeowners may also choose to have their system monitored professionally for a small fee.

When a new technology presents itself to the public, it usually costs an arm and a kneecap to buy. Wireless cameras aren't like that. Homeowners can buy a low-end system and upgrade when they're able.

Last but not least is how insurance companies view home security systems. Few give homeowners a discount on their home insurance. Some do, though, which allows homeowners to add or subtract security cameras and take them along when they move.
