We get this question from many of our existing and potential customers, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to address it here. When it comes to surveillance, you want the most secure and reliable connection possible, and at this time, a wired connection is the best solution. However, running cables throughout your home or small business is usually a non-starter. So we use the next best thing… your existing power lines.
Now I know that some of the other surveillance systems out there market themselves as wireless, but in reality, in most cases, it’s only the video feed that they are referring to as wireless. AC power is still required to drive the electrical components of the camera. While you can buy battery-operated cameras, they’re not a practical solution because they only provide video for a few hours or days before the batteries need to be recharged or replaced.
WiLife uses your existing electrical wiring to provide a secure hardwired connection back to your PC so you can enjoy the security and stability of a hardwire connection without having to run new wires yourself. If you ask me, that’s even better than wireless!
