What is a Cellular Security Camera?
There are a variety of options when it comes to home security. So, we are going to take a look at what a “cellular security camera is,” what the benefits are.”
Now, your traditional home security camera relies on a dedicated internet connection to maintain its capacity to record, store and stream footage.
A cellular security camera operates similarly to the way your typical cell phone does. Which means, a cellular module is installed inside that allows a connection to any 3G, 4G, or 5G network is available in the area.
Thus, a cellular-based security system does require the need of a carrier network, such as: AT&T, Verizon or T-Mobile. And these providers supply a variety of products to meet every customer’s needs.
What does this mean?
Being able to ditch the wi-fi connection will allow customers to get more flexibility from the security cameras they purchase.
Say, you have a family cabin located in the woods that you only frequented for family reunions. The necessity to have a security system that did not need a Wi-Fi connection to operate would be ideal.
A security camera, such as the Arlo Go utilizes 3G, 4G, or 5G to operate, store and connect to the owners’ smartphone.
What if cell reception isn’t that great?
While this ultimately depends on where you install that camera system itself. The idea of having a cellular-based security system, such as the ReoLink Go is a moot point if the reception in the area is either impossible to connect to or just non-existent.
