So over the last few years the popularity of wireless cameras and surveillance systems have been gaining lots of momentum. From a professional installers point of view I cringe every time someone asks my company to install a wireless Cctv security camera system.

Most wireless cctv security cameras are not truly wireless

Most wireless security cameras still need a power source which means you have to run a power wire directly to the wireless cctv security camera. Then their are a small percentage of wireless security cameras that have batteries in them that have to be charged. This can be very challenging if you want an exterior wireless cctv security camera mounted up high, as it should be out of normal reach to prevent tampering and vandalism. I am not aware of any homeowner that would be enthused to pull out a ladder to charge their wireless security camera on a regular basis.
