Of course, the stronger the transmitter inside the router or AP, the farther it can transmit the signal. Since video sent over WiFi is a data signal, as long as there is signal penetration you will see a clear picture without interference lines. The worst that will happen is the video refresh rate will be low, meaning the video will be choppy and it will not be real time video transmission. When compared to analog transmitters, if there is even a single obstruction, it would cause lines to appear in the video. In this setup we will show you how to setup a wireless camera system for long range wireless transmission using a WiFi security camera that already has a built in WiFi radio and a powerful outdoor wireless access point. Clear line of sight is recommended as obstructions can cause signal degradation depending on the density of the obstruction. This setup is great for outdoors where you can mount a radio on the exterior surface of a building and broadcast WiFi to cameras mounted in the signal path. By using one AP, you can connect to up to four 1080P HD security cameras and view them using your computer, or integrate them in to a NVR for recording. Click here to read more. The first and extremely important step when considering a wireless security camera system is understanding the limitations of wireless equipment. You can purchase expensive wireless equipment and still have poor signal due to interference or thick walls.

Looking to move beyond the current 21 percent to 22 percent penetration among broadband households, professional monitoring providers may be hard pressed to find a single silver bullet. Among consumers without a home security system or professional monitoring service subscription, no single feature had high levels of appeal. A service without a long term contract was the most appealing to this group, with other features such as the ability to monitor a system using a smartphone or one that includes control of the thermostat scoring between 23 percent and 29 percent. Most alarming is that half of those without systems just aren’t interested — today or under any offered conditions. This creates added importance to maintaining existing customers, and Parks Associates research shows these customers largely value price savings. When those who terminated service in the past year were asked the reason for terminating their service, 36 percent said they didn’t feel the service was worth what they were paying for it. This is why smart home kit vendors offering self monitoring have the potential to grow more quickly by addressing the needs of non traditional security customers. These customers are increasingly interested in home control and potentially security but not in professional monitoring fees. — Contributed by Tom Kerber, Director, IoT Strategy, Parks AssociatesAs Managing Editor, Karyn Hodgson writes exclusive cover stories, such as SDM’s State of the Market series, as well as other feature length articles and case studies.
