8 Benefits of Wireless Commercial Surveillance Systems

A video surveillance system keeps you connected to what’s going on at your business or facility, whether it’s for protecting property and assets or assuring the safety of your staff and clients.

Wireless technology advancements are making it easier for companies to implement reliable and strong video surveillance systems without the cost and hassle of hardwiring your premises or installing expensive monitoring consoles.

Analog cameras used to send pictures using specialized point-to-point cables. Only from a control console could videos be seen. Today’s digital IP video cameras, on the other hand, send footage in real-time over your IP network (such as LAN or internet) and may be seen on a range of devices.

The following are some of the ways network video systems are making in-house video surveillance more accessible, inexpensive, and practical than ever before:

1. Easy Installation

Today, all you need is a wireless IP network camera and a wireless router to get up and running, with no need for a hard-wired connection. Additionally, the cameras can be installed on the rooftops or even in-wall to provide maximum flexibility to meet your security requirements. Wireless IP cameras can also be installed in areas that would be difficult or impossible to wire.

2. Affordable

As with any new technology, early adopters pay a premium price. As the technology advances and more people adopt it, prices start to drop. In the meantime, it pays to be patient and wait for the prices to drop. Investing in a good wireless IP network camera system now will save you lots of money over time.

3. Easy Trouble-shooting

IP network camera systems give you more control and allow you to troubleshoot issues independently. You can quickly view live streaming video from the cameras to identify the problem and fix it.

4. Flexibility

IP network cameras allow you to easily change camera locations and change your network configurations as your needs change.

5. Interoperability

IP network cameras can be connected to various devices, including NVRs and video management software (VMS), as well as third-party security systems.

6. Secure

IP network cameras are built to withstand the harshest weather conditions, and they don’t have the electrical safety issues that traditional analog cameras have. They also offer full encryption with video motion detection and alerts and other network-level security features.

7. Better Overall Image Quality

IP network cameras are able to produce High Definition (HD) images. In addition, cameras can be deployed in high-petrochemical or high-dust areas such as factory floors and warehouses without worrying about the build-up of micro-dust and dirt.

8. Better Night Vision

Traditional analogue cameras require a lot of light to produce a clear picture. Typically there is a trade-off, making images look grainy during the day but clearer at night. On the other hand, IP network cameras use improved LEDs and image sensors that produce clear images during the day and offer night vision capabilities.


New advances in wireless technology allow your businesses to be cost-effective and convenient with video surveillance. Wireless IP network cameras are particularly attractive to small businesses with limited budgets and small facilities or locations that are tough to wire.
