Wireless CCTV…A Popular, Effective and Affordable Way to Achieve Security In Your Home.

Wireless CCTV Due to the current level of crime, people are naturally anxious to keep their family and property safe and secure from intruders and a simple home surveillance system can markedly reduce the risk of burglary, theft and vandalism.

An increasingly popular, effective and affordable way to achieve this in the home is to install a wireless CCTV system. This is the best option where it is difficult or unsuitable to run a video cable back to the VCR or monitor.   Wireless CCTV UK Is easy to set up and use and will also save you money on expensive security surveillance installation costs including unsightly wiring.

Government regulations now permit the use of licence-exempt wireless systems that are able to transmit signals up to 100 metres in line of sight. This reduces to approximately 30 metres through walls and ceilings inside the house.

Wireless CCTV Systems There is an extensive range of products and prices to choose from in this market. Cameras and receivers are now available with 4 selectable channels making multi-camera installations possible. Even small covert cameras can be supplied with an integrated transmitter.

CCTV Cameras Can be activated by PIR detector or movement sensor, indoor/outdoor, colour or black and white, with options for integrated infra-red illumination and audio.

Remember that CCTV cameras require mains power to operate, since battery operation is unsuitable for permanent installations. However you can usually access power for the camera in some areas such as the loft of the house. The voltage required is usually 9-12V DC and typically supplied from a small power supply, which plugs into the mains.

Most wireless CCTV cameras operate on the 2.4 Ghz frequency, but please note, wireless cameras are not compatible within range of wireless PC networks.
Simply choose a suitable site for your wireless CCTV camera and connect the small receiver to your TV, VCR or PC and you will be able to view or record your surveillance pictures.
