I`m considering installing one or maybe two of the wireless cameras but have
a few questions. Maybe someone has them, I would like to know your opinion.
Since video senders work on 2.4Ghz as well, what prevents say a neighbour
from tunning in to the signal? I don`t really want neighbours being able to
watch our back garden like it was Big Brother, especialy since it is a next
door neighbour that we are worried about.
I tried some of the small wireless cameras and was not very impressed by the
quality. They seemed to drift out of frequency and the picture would
distort. Ended up with a wire system. Much better.
Open wireless systems are never secure, so they should be avoided where at
all possible. You can buy cheap and cheerful hard-wired CCTv systems for
around the home, with many new designs in camera technology making them very
discreet. Look on the web, or better still ebay.co.uk, for CMOS colour
camera, and you should have many good hits to follow.
