Wireless systems use the Internet, allowing users to connect their new security system utilizing a wireless router that treats each camera as a device. Most homes already have a wireless router that people use to connect their computers, laptops, smartphones and other smart devices such as smartTVs and thermostats to the internet. Now, one can use the existing router to also install a wireless security system.

Another major benefit of wireless systems is that they enable live audio/video streaming and/or continuous recording at specific times, on demand, or when activated by an event or happening. Videos can be kept at a distant location or locally.
