Can Burglars Jam Your Wireless Security System Or Hack Them? 📡

The simple answer is yes. Purchasing a WI-FI camera is a strong visual deterrent. Most criminals are unsophisticated and opportunists. You should think about a camera as part of your overall security strategy, it’s another layers to securing your home or car. We want to deter thieves, make them think twice and move them onto the next location.

No system is impenetrable, with technology moving so fast there will be vulnerabilities. A good security camera brand will offer robust protection and regular software updates.

 

What Resolution Do You Need? 💻

In this day and age you want at the very least 1080p that offer a wide angle view. 1080p doesn’t take up loads of storage when recording and have no problems steaming onto your smart phone.

Most cameras are now moving to 4k (ultra HD) the problem with 4K at the time of writing you will need a 5g connection or strong Wi-Fi signal to stream without the live feed lagging out. Recording in 4k will cause a lot of data that needs backing up in the cloud or storage device that could become expensive. If your camera has the option, then it’s worth testing out and switching between the resolutions to get a better understanding of your requirements.

All the cameras above come with night vision the standard range is 30 feet for most WI-Fi cameras.

 

Motion Detection A Good Idea? 🏃🏽

It’s a must. Having a review sent to your phone or table when the camera triggers is a way of detecting any suspicious activity around your home or car.

All the above cameras come with motion detection, but not all come with the alarm system. A motion detection will trigger the camera to record when motion is detected. They can be overly sensitive, so tweaking the setting is something you will have to do. Most WI-FI apps are easy to set up and have a function for you to experiment with the sensor settings. When setting up my Ring flood light camera, I spent about a week trying out all different formats the one thing that Ring has going for it is the recording and cloud back up. The sensor can be triggered but will continuously record throughout the day and night for me that’s a bonus.

 

How Do Security Cameras Store Video? 📼

There are several ways to have your video stored, most offer a free cloud storage for a week or seven days before deleting or overwritten. Most are now offering a subscription plan for 30 days so you don’t have to worry about losing any data as it’s automatically uploaded to the cloud. You can also purchase internal hard drives that connect to the camera or Micro SD card. Personally, I pay for a cloud back up as its cheap and easy.

 

What Weather can a outdoor security camera handle? ☔️

Most outdoor security cameras have an IP55 rating that means they can withstand most weather. If they have an IP55 rating or above, they can withstand rain, snow, heat and cold.

End Notes

Choosing an outdoor wireless security camera will depend on budget and where you locate the camera. Most WIFI cameras are easy to set-up and almost all have an app that will provide the correct notifications. I have the RING camera that hasn’t missed a beat since installing, so I can recommend the RING after a year of use. Remember, installing a security camera won’t keep you safe, but it will give you peace of mind when you’re away or sleeping. You need to think about security from a multiple attack approach adding extras to ward off any potential villains.

I hope this blog has been of use to you and you have found the correct outdoor wireless security camera for your personal needs and home security.
