Wired CCTV Cameras Vs WiFi / Wireless Security Cameras in Pakistan

Wired or Wireless Security Cameras in Pakistan ? This is a question most of people, who are ready to install a security system at their premises, are asking at our professional business Paktron CCTV Company in Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

WiFi / Wireless Security Cameras vs Wired Cameras

We decided to make the answer online for everyone. Our technical staff always guide new customers that both i.e. hard wired and wireless security cameras have their pros and cons.

Wireless cameras are truly not beneficial till the end of the electricity load-shedding in Pakistan, because you have to provide power to all cameras through UPS or centralized power system so wiring is required to power all cameras for their non-stop working.

If you have already UPS-enabled power sockets near to the locations where you want to install cameras then this a other case. :)

There is no fully wireless camera up till now because they always need power for their working and for their charging in case of battery powered cameras.

If you want one or two cameras, but not more than two, then you can go for wireless as it requires minimum wiring for power, and are cost effective.

Quick Pros and Cons of Wired and Wireless Cameras:
