It’s hard to ignore that fact that anything with a wire seems to slowly but surely be going wireless these days. From the simplest of computer mice to the most intricate of ADT security systems, it seems that where there’s a wire, there’s the potential to get rid of said wire completely. For the most part this is nothing but a positive thing, as there are some serious and in most cases obvious benefits to wireless gadgets and tools. However, there are also some drawbacks that must be accepted and taken into account before making a final decision – especially where the subject of security is concerned.
In order to decide whether or not it’s a good idea to go for a setup of wireless security cameras for the home or the office, it’s important to weigh up the pros and cons of what’s on offer. So to kick off with the good stuff, the biggest and most obvious benefit of all that comes with losing the wires is that of convenience. When installing security cameras the traditional way, it’s a case of having to map out exactly where to run the cables, putting in place the necessary fixtures to hold them in place and drilling at-times massive holes in the walls to connect them to the recording devices on the interior of the building. By contrast, with a wireless system it’s as simple as putting the cameras anywhere needed and having them transmit their data wirelessly to a receiver on the inside – convenience at its finest.
Another benefit of wireless cameras is the ability to position the cameras in areas where it would be very difficult or even impossible to reach with standard cables. Be it the bottom end of the garden, at the top of a tall pole or really anywhere else imaginable, no cables mean no limits. What’s more, it’s also just as easy to extend and expand a wireless security system as it is to install it in the first place. Depending on the brand purchased and the system installed, adding extra cameras can be as easy as buying them, sticking them to the walls and hitting the power button.
As for the downsides to the equation, the most obvious of all is of course the fact that the best wireless cameras on the market right now are inherently more expensive than their simple wired counterparts. The differences in price are shrinking by the day, but if budget concerns are to some extent controlling the project, wired cameras tend to be the cheapest options of all. What’s more, it’s also possible for wireless cameras to suffer from interference depending on the other wireless devices that are being used in and around the property at the time, though this is rare and can usually be addressed with minor tweaks. Last but not least, wireless cameras use their own dedicated source of power – usually batteries – which must be kept under observation in order to prevent the power being lost entirely and the cameras shutting down, thus denying the property any additional security.
Don’t fear, don’t despair, I’m here to fix your employment woes. Well, not me personally. I’m just going to take credit for this here infographic. The infographic has two sections and both are important; however you’ll probably get most out of the first section. The top half is all about how people aren’t getting jobs because of their social media profiles and what they could do to rectify this. The second half is about using the various tools on sites like Facebook and Twitter to get jobs.
If you’re struggling, then both of these sections will be vitally important to you. If I were you I’d keep this bookmarked, or even print it off and make sure you follow it. Gumtree have done the research so that you don’t have to learn it the hard way. Job hunting is hard enough, so don’t make it harder.
