Wireless cameras are wireless in the sense that they do not require a cord to connect them to an outlet. However, wireless is not wireless when it comes to security. Wireless Cameras can be hacked and used for nefarious purposes. If you’re considering purchasing one of these wireless cameras, please read this article before making your purchase decision.
1) The Foscam R2 1080P HD Wireless IP Camera with Pan/Tilt/Zoom Functionality ($349)
You want to make sure your home is safe and secure, but you don’t want to spend a fortune on wireless cameras.
The Foscam wireless camera solves this problem by giving you the security of wireless cameras without the high price tag. This wireless IP camera has pan/tilt/zoom functionality and records in 1080p HD quality video with night vision up to 32 feet away. It also includes free cloud storage for 24 hours worth of footage so that you can keep an eye on what’s happening at all times, even when you’re not there.
For just $349, this wireless IP camera provides everything that most people need from their wireless cameras – including affordability!
2) Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX10 ($649)
This wireless camera is great for vloggers and travel bloggers alike as it offers 4K video quality, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and a built-in electronic viewfinder. However, there have been some complaints about the autofocus not being very accurate and the wireless range not being that good.
Users have complained about wireless connectivity issues from anywhere from 15-20 feet away from the wireless router, which isn’t great if you’re trying to connect your wireless camera to a wireless network in your house or office building.
3) Netgear Arlo Q 1080p VMS3130 Wireless Smart Home Camera ($162)
This wireless camera has all the bells and whistles one could ever want in a wireless camera: 1080P HD recording, motion detection alerts and scheduling, compatibility with Alexa and Google Assistant and the ability to record directly to cloud storage. However, wireless range is limited to about 100 feet; therefore, wireless connectivity won’t be an issue if your wireless camera is placed near your wireless router.
4) Wyze Cam 1080p HD Indoor Wireless Smart Home Camera ($25)
This wireless camera is a great option for those on a budget as it offers 1080p HD recording, motion and sound detection, night vision and cloud storage for just $25. However, wireless connectivity is limited to about 30 feet; therefore, wireless placement of your camera is key.
5) Yi Home Camera 2 1080p Smart Indoor Security Camera ($50)
This wireless camera has a lot of the same features as the Wyze Cam wireless camera (1080p HD recording, motion and sound detection, night vision and cloud storage) but it retails for $50, which is double the price of the Wyze Cam wireless camera.
While all of these wireless cameras are great options, please keep in mind that wireless security is not 100% foolproof and that you should take all the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of your wireless camera and the data it is transmitting.
