Are you looking for surveillance solutions? There are two main categories of cameras for home security: indoor and outdoor. Within these categories are several subcategories of security cameras, including wired and wireless, battery-powered and AC-powered, and floodlight cameras and doorbell cameras. The primary difference between indoor and outdoor cameras is that outdoor cameras are weather-resistant so they can withstand rain, sun, and dust.
Wired Indoor Cameras
Wired indoor security cameras are connected to a central recording device by a coaxial cable or ethernet cable.
These are generally dome cameras, which can be mounted on ceilings and provide a wide field of view inside a home. They typically require professional installation.
Wireless Indoor Cameras
Also called Wi-Fi cameras or IP cameras, wireless indoor cameras connect to a Wi-Fi network and store their footage in the cloud. They’re easy to install as they don’t need a cable to transmit their video feed, but they still need to be plugged into power.
Wired Outdoor Cameras
Wired outdoor cameras are wired to a central recording device and are typically bullet-style cameras, named for their long, cylindrical shape. They can be mounted on walls or ceilings and don’t need to be plugged into an outlet. Many wired cameras can be used outdoors or indoors, and they typically require professional installation.
