Wired home CCTV systems are the most traditional system used in larger properties. The key difference between this type of system and wireless options is the source of power, which with hardwire solutions is continuous and permanent. Unlike wireless, wired CCTV requires cables for power, video transmission and internet connection. This can normally be done through a cable that connects your camera to the recorder, going all the way through to your router.
Powering your camera may take form in two ways: you can either have a separate power cord or this can be done through a Power over the Ethernet (POE) cord, which simultaneously provides power and internet connection to your system. This can be decided after a thorough survey of your home and your necessities. Hardwire CCTV systems are also known for their great reliability. Due to being physically linked and connected, wired CCTV tends to be less affected by poor signal coverage.
