Strengths and weaknesses of Wi-Fi / IP CCTV cameras


Of course, there are many more advantages:

1. You can organize video surveillance where it is prohibited or impossible to lay cables for a number of reasons.

2. The work and the system itself are cheaper - there are fewer cables, the amount of manual labor is reduced, it is not necessary to buy a DVR (the statement is true only if there are few cameras, and the territory is small - in other cases, you cannot do without data consolidation on NVR).

3. System Flexibility - Since the cameras are not as tightly tied to cables as wired Pasang CCTV Jakarta, and sometimes not tied at all, they can be mounted anywhere, providing a complete view.

4. They can form the basis for a fixed wired network - they support not only wireless communication, but also connection via Ethernet or ONVIF. That is, if circumstances require it, cameras can be easily transferred from wireless to wired. For example, when expanding the system or to provide a more stable signal.

5. Really wide range of devices for different conditions - budget and multifunctional; with different angles and viewing angles; with or without microphone, speaker and two-way audio; waterproof and not; IP cameras with POE power supply.

All weaknesses boil down to two points:

· The communication range is small - a maximum of 50 meters, so it is worth using signal amplifiers in a large room or spacious yard;

· The maximum signal transmission distance can be reduced if thick walls, metal products, etc. appear in its path;

· Signal stability may drop in adverse weather conditions - for example, heavy snow and rain are actually a mechanical obstacle.

However, the first two points can be easily bypassed using a signal amplifier and wisely choosing a place for installation. That is, they have only one real drawback - the "meteosensitivity" of the signal.
