I want to set up security cameras around the perimeter of my home and possibly a couple inside.  The problem I am encountering is what type of system do I use.  I’m frustrated with the term “wireless” because I find that even wireless requires a power source.  This to me is more daunting than running cables because of having to install outlets vs just trying to hide the cable. I already have a monitored security system but the company I am with quoted an absurd (to me) installation price, a higher monthly fee and required an extended contract duration.  I’m pretty handy when it comes to DIY but why go to the trouble of running cable if I don’t have to.  

Can anyone provide some guidance as to alternatives?  Thanks for the help

Hello,

 

A wireless set-up would require your cameras to be powered as well, and you could have local runs to outlets instead of them all going back to your recording device. Generally speaking, you would want to utilize a combination of both wired and Wi-Fi cameras. Using the Wi-Fi cameras for those hard to run places. The reason I saw this is because wireless cameras will require wireless router, extenders, etc and is not as consistent as a hard wire connection. 

 

Please reach out to us at 866-573-8878 option 2 and we can go over the wide variety of options that are available to you at security camera king.

 

Thank you and good luck!
