A wireless security camera captures video and audio of areas in and around your home. The "wireless" descriptor means the data is sent wirelessly. The security camera isn't completely wireless unless it's battery-powered - then it's called a wire-free camera. Otherwise, a wireless home camera system may still have a wire for electrical power. Within Wireless Security Cameras, products come with Mounting Hardware and Cables.
Are there multi-pack options for security cameras?
No, not all wireless security cameras need internet. Depending on the camera, you can also use an SD card or hard drive to capture footage. This is instead of uploading the video to the cloud. A Wi-Fi security camera doesn't need to connect to the internet and can run on Wi-Fi only - but this means you won't get remote access to it from outside your home network. If you're concerned about a security camera eating up your data or storage, find one that only transmits video footage when motion is detected.
What is camera resolution for security cameras?
Wireless security camera resolution ranges from 1080p to 4K (8MP), measured in pixels or megapixels. A good resolution is in the middle of this range, such as a 4MP or a 5MP. If you think you'll need to zoom in on details, go with a higher resolution camera. That way, the image will be clear instead of blurry and pixelated. However, ensure your Wi-Fi has the bandwidth to handle high-res images before opting for a 4K camera. Otherwise, your internet will struggle to stream the footage, giving you a patchy or lower-quality video. Within Wireless Security Cameras, the most common camera resolutions available are 1080p, 2MP, 1080 TVL, 3MP, 4MP and 5MP.
