CCTV WiFi House Protection

Recommended Posts

We are buying a house near TGF's village up 100 km NE of Ubon.

The house is not far from the village but rather isolated and since we'll not live there permanently we would like to install a WiFi CCTV system.

I checked at Lazada and found this :

Anybody has an installed CCTV system and can comment ?

Thank you for any input 🙂

Call me an old fuddy duddy but I would be reluctant to use WiFi to connect the cameras, LAN cable is more reliable...you already have to run power cable to the cameras and yes you'll need a "switching hub" for all the LAN inputs...WiFi maybe for 1 or 2 cams but after that they could start eating up a lot of WiFi bandwidth, possibly easier for attackers to block the WiFi signal ? ?

You can get 3G/4G signal/frequency blockers too...really if someone is intent on bypassing /breaking a system they will find a way...or just wear a wig and stockings on head and break in anyway ! sometimes they just don't care what security measures there are.

Indeed. But casual burglars may not have jamming equipment.

Anyone can cut the internet line. Often by accident since they hang so low.

3g/4g would be safer.

3G/4G you would need a sim card for each camera, or a modem/router with a sim card. This may get expensive as you have to keep the sim alive

The 1080 digital pictures are far superior picture vs analog cabled.

Because they are cabled doesn't make them analog. Your cabled cameras are probably lower resolution or different format. Digital IP camera's can also be connected by LAN cable

I have 4 cameras on a hard wired hard drive, the mechanical connections need contstant looking after also the cables are subject to rats eating them.

 

I also have six 1080 wifi cameras that can be viewed on a computer or on a phone they record to a cloud and on a 16gb memory card inside each camera, The 1080 digital pictures are far superior picture vs analog cabled.

 

Look at Viewstarcam wifi range on Lazada

I may also buy 6 of these Rimmer ....

What else is needed ?  do I need a control box or similar ? power box ? base station ?

Thanks,

No base station just a power supply and your own wifi and the vstar app on your phone and or computer to view real time anywhere.

Slot in a memory card (class10 less likely a fake) and it will then record for about four days. Access the stored recording on your computer or on your phone.

Try one first see how you get on with it before you buy six 😁

ok ,  will try a couple first ....  I'll buy the class10 memory cards ....  will let you know later how we get on after trying them. thanks for the advice.

If you want indoor cams to look at one room or the kids that you can pan around from your phone have a look at the C7837 / C7824 range, they are cheap enough and they also take a memory card, access from your phone and only need plugging into a power supply.

do you have problems with the wifi camera after a power failure? does it all reestablish connection on power up? 

 

any weak spot in your system due to power failure?

 

what about power conditioning?

All the outdoor cameras power up automatically after a power outage, no problem at all as long as the wifi also powers up. If the wifi did not power up when the power returns the wifi cameras would still be recording on the TF cards.

 

The wired in cameras  also power up no problem they are all Hik vision cameras running through an  Atashi system and hard drive.

 

The little indoor cams in rooms when powering up swing side to side and up and down and when they come to rest they could be pointing at the ceiling but easy to adjust on the phone.

 

I dont have power factor correction as I have my own TP 50kva transformer pushing out a steady 228v so cant really comment on that aspect, though I could see it maybe a problem for some with fluctuating voltage.
