Wireless Transmitters

Wireless Transmitters

Wireless video transmitters are used when a physical connection between camera and recorder exceeds the cost of transmitting the video wirelessly. Another reason an installer might use a wireless transmitter is because the distance between the camera and recorder is greater than the distance electricity and power can be transmitted.

Wireless Transmitters FAQ

What is a wireless transmitter?

Even though wireless video surveillance is high in demand, a good understand of how the technology works is important when considering a wireless transmitter for your surveillance system. Some wireless video transmission systems offer a set number of frequencies in which an analog camera can operate. A wireless installation can reduce the cost of installing long distance cable, tubing, and trenching. It also gives users the freedom of installation the camera in different locations instead of being limited by a wire’s specifications.

A transmitter can be used for applications which require video be transmitted remotely. Applications such as mobile video deployment, construction site monitoring, ranches, undercover surveillance, can all benefit from the use of a wireless transmitter. Some radios are capable of streaming high resolution video up to 200 miles! Indoor radios are available for applications which don’t require the ruggedness you might need in the desert.At A1 Security Cameras, we specialize in finding solutions to obstacles encountered in the field. Let our wireless specialists assist in designing the right wireless security camera system for you.

How does wireless transmitters work?

Wireless transmitters work by converting electrical signals into radio waves for wireless transmission and communication. They consist of a transmitter unit and an antenna. When electrical signals, such as audio, video, or data, are applied to the transmitter, it modulates these signals onto a specific radio frequency. The antenna then broadcasts these radio waves wirelessly, allowing the signals to travel through the air. Receivers tuned to the same frequency can capture and demodulate these radio waves, converting them back into the original electrical signals for use in devices like radios, wireless cameras, or data communication systems.

Is Wi-Fi a wireless transmission?

Yes, Wi-Fi is a wireless transmission technology. It stands for "Wireless Fidelity" and is commonly used for wireless local area networking (WLAN) and internet access in homes, businesses, and public places. Wi-Fi uses radio waves to transmit data wirelessly between devices such as computers, smartphones, tablets, and routers. It allows these devices to connect to the internet and communicate with each other without the need for physical wired connections. Wi-Fi is a key technology for enabling wireless connectivity in modern digital environments.
