Wireless IP Camera

Wireless Security Cameras are a combination of three components: A camera, a transmitter to send the signal, and a receiver to receive the signal. A Wireless Camera transmits video from a built-in transmitter to a receiver, which is in turn plugged into either a monitor or other recording device.

Wireless Cameras come in all shapes and sizes; some look like traditional Security Cameras, while others are inconspicuous, Spy Cameras that resemble just about anything. The possibilities are as endless. Wireless Spy Cameras are true masters of disguise, like a chameleon, they observe everything while blending effortlessly with their surroundings.

Can I make a Regular Camera Wireless?
A separate transmitter and receiver can be added to any camera to make it wireless. By choosing your camera, transmitter, and receiver separately, you can design a system that fits your exact needs.

How far can Wireless Cameras Transmit?
Wireless Cameras come all shapes and sizes and are capable of transmitting to different distances. The transmission range of a Wireless Camera is usually rated by using the Line-of-Sight (LOS) measurements.

What is Line-of-Sight (LOS) Range?
Line-of-Sight (LOS) Range refers to the ideal broadcast range of wireless audio/video link (transmitter and receiver) systems. Line-of-sight means the range when there is a visible pathway between the transmitter antenna and the receiver antenna.

Just like home cordless telephones, TV reception, and cellular phones, these cameras can be temperamental and will not operate properly if they are placed too close to another electronic device, such as a cordless phone, television, or microwave.

What is the difference between various frequencies?
Most cameras operate on a 2.4 GHz frequency, as do cordless phones. There are three other frequencies: 2.4 GHz, 1.2 GHz, 900 MHz, 5.8 GHz, each with their own specifications.

2.4 GHz
A 2.4 GHz Wireless Camera comes with multiple channels. No tuning is required. Overall video quality is better. Range varies from 200-700 feet.
1.2 GHz
High resolution video transmission and outdoor medium range potential makes 1.2 GHz a good choice for multiple system applications, especially when going through ceilings, floors and most walls.

900 MHz
This is an amateur band. 4 channels are available in the 900 band. Range varies from 200-700 feet or more depending on environmental conditions. Its receivers have a tuning knob that you must adjust to attain a clear, sharp picture.

5.8 GHz
5.8 GHz is the latest and greatest in CCTV Wireless Security Equipment. You can record and view up to 4 channels of video with a range of up to 300 ft. with direct line-of-sight.

When using this frequency, you are not sharing a radio frequency that is considered to be part of the public band, eliminating interference from other devices. It can also send a strong signal up to 2,000 feet.

Will other electronic devices interfere with Wireless Cameras?
The signal generated by a 2.4GHz Wireless Camera may be disrupted by the 2.4GHz cordless phone or other 2.4 GHz devices. Your microwave oven might also generate a conflicting signal since your wireless cameras and the microwave operate on the same frequency. This will not damage your camera.

What is the difference between a Wireless Camera and a Wireless Network Camera?
An ordinary Wireless Camera transmits its A/V data via RCA or COAX cable to a monitor or a recording device (either a VCR or DVR).

A Wireless Network Camera (aka "Wireless IP Cameras" or "Ethernet Cameras") transmits its signal via standard computer networking cable. It has software built-in on its chip that allows anyone on the network to view the A/V data, just like a computer on a network. There is no special software needed to view the camera. You can view the images in a web browser by pulling up the IP Address assigned to the camera.
