  • Wireless Security Camera Systems Are Easy To Setup

    If you've been considering purchasing wireless cameras and are wondering how hard it is to configure a wireless security camera system then you need to watch this video we made. Up till now wireless security cameras have been riddled with issues. Up till 2012, the only kind of wireless security cameras available were those that used RF signals to transmit the video signal. Although RF signal is great for transmission of real time video (instantaneous transmission of action without delay), the signal is highly susceptible to interference from other wireless signals of the same frequency or from EMF transmitted by high power lines. Most importantly, RF wireless signals cannot traverse any obstructions whatsoever without significant degradation in video quality. Continue reading

  • How to use Wireless Security Cameras with a WiFi Router

    Connecting your Wireless IP cameras to a Wi-Fi router can be troublesome depending on your level of experience and expertise. Not everyone is well versed in networking terms and technologies. Let alone what to do when they see several series of numbers separated by periods. Let’s dive right in and get this accomplished. Continue reading

  • How to Change the IP Address for your Ubiquiti Access Point

    When you're setting up access points for Long Range Wireless Transmission, especially point to point access, you will need to change the IP address of the access points that you're using to make sure there is not an IP conflict on the network. An IP conflict occurs when two or more devices on the same network have the same IP address. In order for a device to communicate on a network, it needs to have a unique IP address. When more than one device on a network has the same IP address this gets noticed and the network interface on all of the devices with that particular IP address gets disabled. This causes each device to lose its connection to the network until the IP conflict is handled. It could be resolved by simply removing all the devices with that IP address and manually changing the IP address to a number that is unused on the network and outside of the DHCP range. That process is repeated until all of those devices are connected to the network with unique IP addresses. Continue reading

  • Wireless IP Camera Setup Guide

    We receive many requests for wireless camera streaming for security and other unrelated applications such as monitoring manufacturing processes or placing cameras on UAVs. Until 2012, the options available were limited to analog D1 resolution wireless video transmitters of 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz frequencies such as the one found in this outdoor wireless security camera. These RF or Analog wireless transmitters were limited to clear line of sight, meaning there must be a unobstructed view between the antennas connected to the receiver and transmitter. While this requirement was doable for outdoor applications, it made it impossible to use these devices for other applications because of interference from obstacles. Continue reading

  • How To Setup a Point To Point Wireless Access Point Link for IP Cameras

    Our 2.4GHz wireless access point radio is a great product to use for long range wireless video transmission, especially in cases where your camera's built-in wireless radio or wireless router are just not strong enough to provide a stable video signal. If you currently have a wireless IP camera and noticed your camera is frequently dropping frames or is getting disconnected, then a wireless access point at either the camera or router, or both, may resolve the issue.

    Let's say you don't even have ip cameras, and you would like to send your internet signal from one building on your property to another, then the setup described in this article will help you achieve that task. You will be able to tie in a powerful high gain wireless radio at each end to send a stable and robust WiFi signal. We show in this guide how to setup a Point to Point WiFi connection.

  • Wireless Security Camera System Setup Guide for Long Range Transmission

    This How To guide discusses the steps necessary to setup a wireless camera system for long range transmission that can be used indoors or outdoors. We show how our wireless security cameras with built-in WiFi radios can be used with professional 2.4GHz WiFi access points to establish reliable signals for transmission up to 600ft. Clear line of sight is recommended as obstructions can cause signal degradation depending on the density of the obstruction. This setup is great for outdoors where you can mount a radio on the exterior surface of a building and broadcast WiFi to cameras mounted in the signal path, for example, a parking lot, apartment complex, factories, warehouses, lumber yard, sanitation processing, mining operations, cranes, and other industrial applications. Since the signal is WiFi, the transmitting radio can also be placed indoors inside the home or business to broadcast a signal, however the signal strength will vary as explained above. You can also use indoor access points or your own router which are compact and aesthetically pleasing to connect to these WiFi wireless security cameras. The applications are countless in indoor business applications such as hospitals, offices, retail stores, warehouses, restaurants, and manufacturing plants. Continue reading

Admittedly, not every product that a company sells performs and incredible as you’d like. In defense of those companies, it’s what the market and consumer demands. If they didn't sell what people thought they wanted, they wouldn't be in business for very long. We’re certainly not going to tell you to take every sales person at their word, but it would behoove you to look into what some of them have to say. Continue reading
