Wireless home camera systems offer numerous benefits over wired security systems, such as flexible installation options. Lorex offers two different types of wireless security systems wireless and wire free. Wireless systems use an Analog DVR. Wireless security cameras provide 24/7 monitoring and need to be plugged in. Wire Free systems, on the other hand, include a specific DVR and wire free security cameras. These cameras are battery powered and only start recording when they detect motion. Both types of systems offer the same standard features as a wired systems, including HD quality recording, infrared night vision, and motion detection sensors. They also use DSSS Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum technology to ensure a secure connection while minimizing interference from competing wireless devices. Wireless security cameras are becoming more and more popular in the consumer market, being a cost effective way to have a comprehensive surveillance system installed in a home or business for an often less expensive price. Wireless cameras are also ideal for people renting homes or apartments. Since there is no need to run video extension cables through walls or ceilings from the camera to the receiver or recording device one does not need approval of a landlord to install a wireless security camera system.

Read the full reviewBest ValueBelkin NetCam HD+$119. 99 View at AmazonCheck Walmart?Best nighttime video quality in our testsVery affordableSmart home compatibilityAverage daytime video qualityPoor audio qualityNo scheduled recording optionsThe Belkin NetCam HD+ is one of the most affordable security cameras we tested, selling for around $75 on Amazon at the time of this writing. The price makes it an excellent value, especially considering it earned the highest nighttime video score in our tests with excellent range and clarity in total darkness. In daytime testing, the NetCam had average video quality in bright and low light situations, and while its 720p video resolution doesn't hold up to the 1080p cameras in our review, it’s sufficient for most people. Unfortunately, the Belkin NetCam HD+ had the lowest audio quality in our tests; it was unintelligible. However, audio is arguably less important than video for the purposes of an inexpensive security camera.
