Wired Security Cameras vs. Wi-Fi Cams: Which Ones Should You Buy?

There are so many options to choose from when it comes to home security cameras. Most, however, fall into one of two categories: easy-to-set-up WiFi cameras (like the Nest Cam) and wired surveillance systems that come with a DVR-like box and a handful of cameras.

Both categories have their own benefits and downsides, but one might be more suited for your needs than the other. Let’s look at some of the standout pros and cons of each, and when one might be more appropriate than the other for you.

  

With most WiFi cameras, the installation and setup process is about as easy as it gets. All you have to do is to set the camera somewhere, plug it in, connect it to your WiFi, and you’re off to the races.

Wired camera systems aren’t even close to being this easy to install. First, you have to mount them to a surface using screws, and then fish wires through walls and attics so that they can connect to the DVR box, which holds all of the recordings.

With that in mind, you might wonder why anyone would opt for a wired system—but there are some definite advantages.

 

Wire cameras are more reliable

 

The biggest benefit of having a hard-wired camera system is that it’s usually much more reliable than using Wi-Fi cams.

Wi-Fi cams rely on a wireless connection, which can be reliable, but more often than not, the video will glitch, lag, or freeze at certain times. Plus, the farther you have your Wi-Fi cam placed away from your router, the more problems arise.

With a wired camera setup, there’s rarely a moment when the video feed decreases in quality, glitches, or lags. Instead, you get a constant video feed that maintains its same high quality 24/7.


Some WiFi cams offer a completely subscription-free experience, but a large handful of them require you to pay a monthly or yearly fee in order to get access to all of the features, including the ability to save video recordings to view later on. 


 

With a wired camera system, there’s no need to pay for a monthly or yearly subscription at all. You’ll still get 24/7 recording with the ability to view past recordings whenever you want, because it’s all stored on a box at your house.

Most wired camera setups will store video for around 2-4 months depending on the hard drive. This is plenty of time to look back on an event and save it permanently if you need to, greatly surpassing Nest’s 30-day time period.
