How do they work?

A wireless camera transmits radio signals to a receiver, which is connected to a monitor or a recording device. Although the camera is technically cordless, it is still connected to a power source. You can opt for a recording device if you wish to view the videos later.  In most homes, a camera surveillance system is connected to the main home security system.

The camera is fitted with a wireless radio transmitter (RF) that transmits the video footage to a receiver. Both devices must be paired with each other for functioning. Cameras are typically either 2.4GHz or 5.8GHz. 2.4GHz cameras have a range of approximately 700 feet; can carry out approximately 4 transmissions, but are prone to interference. On the other hand, 5.8GHz cameras have a range up to 2000 feet, can carry out 8 transmissions, and are less prone to interference.

Before you select a wireless security camera system, make sure you keep in mind the following:

  • License requirements in your state - Most states have certain license laws for video surveillance.

  • Wireless range – The size of your home matters greatly. Obstructions such as concrete walls, trees etc., can disrupt the transmission.


Easy installation – Wireless camera systems are easier to install. You don’t have to worry about wiring and drilling the house.

Low costs – Wireless systems can be installed without the need of a professional. This means you can save on unnecessary labor and wiring costs.

Security – One key benefit of wireless systems is that they are difficult to disable. Burglars can easily disable wired systems by simply cutting the wires. But in the case of wireless cameras, there are no wires to cut.

Remote monitoring – Depending on your service provider, you can also opt for cellular monitoring services. This means no matter where you are, you can keep a check on your home and view recorded or live footage.
