home security review
Wi Fi is not great for maintaining a 100% reliable connection at all times, it was never designed for that purpose. Plus your wireless cameras then are dependent on how good your WiFi router is. At some point Wi Fi cameras will
lose their connection to the Internet and have to reconnect, worst case they may fail to reconnect automatically and you may not realise they are down. I have got wired cameras running for nearly 2 years straight without as much as a reboot. You want reliability like that for your home
security but you cant get that from wireless cameras. At least not yet. 2. Whatever CCTV system one chooses it will always need cameras, so a camera is a no brainer first purchase, assuming that one would opt for a ONVIF compliant system. One can then test this using Blue Iris or similar and a spare PC. However, in order to choose an appropriate camera one needs to understand how motion detection works. Is it done by the NVR or by the camera, or a combination of both?For example, a camera could have a PIR built in, whereas the NVR can only “see” the image.
