How Do Wireless Home Security Cameras Work?

Jul 27,2022 | LongPlus

What is a home security wireless camera?

A home security wireless camera is also called a "Wi-Fi camera" or "Smart camera." It conveys its footage over Wi-Fi and runs on AC power. You can see your home footage on your smartphone, tablet, or a PC from anywhere if you are connected to an internet connection. Moreover, you can plug wireless cameras into an outlet via a power cable. Essentially a wireless camera is not wireless; rather known as wireless as it works on wireless internet (Wi-Fi).


How do home security wireless cameras work?

  • Wireless security cameras interconnect through Wi-Fi with the base station or home security system's router.
  • Most have a power cord, while others work on a battery system.
  • They save their footage on a cloud server and can be quickly reached from anywhere.
  • Some of them can also save video on local media, like a micro-SD card in the camera. Furthermore, you can easily install a wireless camera on your device and view its detection.
  • Wireless cameras typically start recording at detection motion or sound. However, you can set some cameras to record 24/7 when plugged into power.
  • These cameras record high-definition video and can record in the dark if they are supported with night vision.
  • They generally come with two-way audio characteristics. It means that you can communicate with the person the camera is watching.
  • Some latest wireless cameras work on machine learning which supports them to send alerts at detecting something suspicious.
  • Moreover, you can also install them on your device and connect them with Bluetooth to check activities on your phone or tablet.
