4 Unexpected Benefits of Wireless Home Security Cameras

How To and Guides · Mar 22, 2021

Easy Installation & Less Clutter

Compared to the sometimes complicated setup of a wired security system, installing wireless security cameras is quite easy. Wireless cameras connect to your home Wi-Fi network and transmit footage from the camera to your smartphone. Once you find an ideal spot for your security camera that allows you to see areas of your home you want to keep tabs on and connect it to your Wi-Fi network, simply pair it to your device and you’re all set. If you do run into trouble, we’re always here to lend a hand with DIY installation.

Easily move your security cameras throughout your home

One major benefit of wireless security cameras is how easy it is to move them to different spots around your home. Without wires, your cameras aren’t anchored. As long as there’s a power source and there’s a strong enough Wi-Fi signal, you’re free to move them throughout your home. With multiple wireless cameras and the flexibility to freely move them throughout your home, you can also cut down on possible blind spots. This can come in handy when you know you’ll be away from home for a long period of time. You can easily adjust the positioning of your cameras to cover specific areas you’d like to monitor.

Monitor your home from your phone

The ability to pair a wireless security camera to your mobile device allows you to monitor your home from anywhere. Checking in on your home from your phone isn’t just to see if there’s a break in. Security cameras allow you to keep an eye on what’s happening when you’re not there. So, you can watch a pet when you’re away or check on a doorstep delivery with a doorbell camera while you’re at work, knowing you can see inside your home when you’re not there is helpful.

Easily manage all your smart devices in one central app

Wireless security cameras can also seamlessly integrate with your overall smart home security and home automation setup. This means you can view your camera footage from the same place you control devices, like your smart thermostat or an appliance connected to a smart plug.
