New camera units, a new monitoring system and state of the art remote recording and storage.
You already have wiring in place from the old system, but it may or may not be compatible, so what to do? You could make sure that the new cameras match the old wiring, but then the signal required for the best picture may not come through as well as needed.
You could run new wiring throughout, but then that raises the cost of the upgrade.
Wireless is convenient, but what if there are signal issues and you lose it at an important time? These are all factors involved in deciding which direction you want to go.
A wired system, while costing a little less than wireless, gives you the confidence of no lost signals or fuzzy video if the signal fades.
A wireless security camera system, however, lets you reposition the cameras at anytime with no rerouting of wires through walls and costly visits from electricians or alarm installers.
Both of these systems have their good points and deciding between them will be difficult.
You need to look at future expansion and possible building remodeling if your space is not to your liking.
This is going to be a sizable investment no matter which way you choose, so leave yourself some wiggle room.
A wireless security camera system gives you the most flexibility of the two.
The ability to expand and change is almost limitless with being able to move cameras at will without altering walls or wiring.
This is the main advantage of this type of system.
The wired system is very stable when it comes to signal though, since the wire is connected, you are almost guaranteed a picture.
This bit of security makes this system the preferred by some.
Whichever way you go, a security camera system will protect you and your space.
