For many people will want a wireless security surveillance camera that they can view from anywhere. There are some cool new services that allow people to check their cameras from anywhere with any Internet device like a laptop or even iPhone or smart phone.
For some people having a device that is an IP (Internet Protocol )camera is hard to do because they don’t have regular cable or DSL service available at the office or home that are trying to protect.
However, with a Mobile Broadband card like the ones from Verizon, Sprint, or T-mobile and Mobile Router, you can have a Wi-Fi network that will power your security cameras anywhere! Now, just like regular Internet, mobile Internet does have a monthly charge, but think of it as insurance for protection your property and safety 24/7. Now you can see what is going on back at your house even in a Car, RV or your hotel room on vacation as well! This is only limited by your imagination.
For achieving this function, first off you need an IP camera. These will work great with regular Wi-Fi or with the Mobile Broadband Wi-Fi service I mentioned earlier. You could get a fixed camera or a PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) camera that lets you remotely point the cam in any direction.
You can also install motion detectors that will have the camera record the video only when motion is detected, so you don’t have to store tons of blank and useless video. This is especially recommended if you are using one of the Mobile Broadband services since most of them have a 5GB data limit per month. There are some other ways of limiting the bandwidth as well so be sure and test your usage so you don’t blow past the 5GB limit. Of course, this can be also be stored on your computer and viewed anytime.
Pairing a good Wi-Fi video camera with mobile broadband and a mobile router will greatly expand the areas where you can operate these cameras and safeguard your life.
