SECURITY CAMERAS

 

Installing a home security system is a good idea for a number of reasons. Besides saving you money on your home insurance, a security system ‒ especially one with CCTV cameras ‒ can help police catch a criminal and restore stolen property. Prior to finding this home, I used a Lorex wireless camera system in my motel room.

I moved into this home six months before I closed the mortgage in order to repair extensive damage due to vandalism. During that time, I needed security (although this is a very fine neighborhood) because I had thousands of dollars in tools and PC equipment in the house. I elected to use the Lorex wireless camera system I used in the motel (adding two more cameras for a total of 4) for the interim The system was easy to install with no wiring at all. In case the deal on the house fell through, or I decided that I didn't want the house after all, I wouldn't have days of work invested in an installation that I would have to un-do to remove my equipment.

Prior to owning the home, my Internet access was gained with a LinkSys WWRT router connected to a parabolic antenna "borrowing" a wi-fi connected from a nearby "open" system. The speed wasn't great, but was tolerable. As soon as I turned on the wireless security cameras, however, the wi-fi signal slowed down to something comparable to Wild West Morse code ‒ my Commodore-64 in the late '80s was MUCH faster! This was because wireless security cameras use a broad range of frequencies (spread-spectrum) right on the same "channels" as wi-fi, and even switching the router to the 5Ghz band didn't help. When I installed cable wi-fi (Comcast), the problem persisted. I only needed the cameras "on" when I was out of the house, and so I turned the security system off when I was home. I didn't need to turn the (4) individual cameras off; all I had to do is turn the monitor off. The cameras don't transmit when the data "handshake" to the monitor is absent.

In addition to interfering with my wi-fi connection, I learned of an UNACCEPTABLE VULNERABILITY of wireless cameras, and wireless security systems (Internet or cellular network-based) in general ‒ they can be "jammed" with an Android cellular phone, or a cell phone jammer that any schmuck can buy over the Internet.

 

Although there is no wiring of signal cables to the monitor, "wireless" security cameras still need to be plugged in to the AC power outlet in order to work. Wherever you plan to put cameras, you need a power source. These cameras work on 9 Volts DC, but will NOT work on a standard 9 Volt battery. Conceivably, you could power (outdoor-mounted) cameras with a solar panel and a regulator circuit, but that would be prohibitively expensive.
