Cellular Surveillance Cameras - The Key Facts - WCCTV USA

What Are Cellular Surveillance Cameras?

Cellular surveillance cameras are a type of security camera. They do not require an Internet connection, cabling, or WiFi access - instead, they connect to a cellular network for data transfer.

They operate in a way that is similar to a cell phone: a cellular modem is built-in to the cameras, allowing video to be wirelessly transmitted to the operator or to a remote monitoring centre.

As these surveillance cameras operate over the cellular network, a SIM card is required for their operation, and this SIM card uses data in a similar way to your cell phone when it connects to the internet. 

What are the Typical Use Cases For Cellular Surveillance Cameras?

Cellular surveillance cameras are ideal for security and monitoring applications where installing a fixed security camera network is either impractical or impossible. 

Such examples include construction sites, where the project will only last for a number of months. Installing permanent security cameras at these locations makes no sense, and using security guards is often expensive and inefficient. 

Cellular cameras have become the new 'must-have' for construction job site security, based on their cost-effectiveness, convenience, and reliability.

Cellular surveillance cameras are also often provided with solar-powering options, which makes them ideal for locations with no fixed power or internet connection.

Other key use cases include:

  • Parking lot security 

  • Temporary law enforcement applications 

  • Events security 

  • Vehicle storage facility security 

  • Oil, gas and energy site security

What are the Benefits of Celluar Surveillance Cameras?

Cellular surveillance cameras have a number of unique benefits, the three key ones we have chosen to highlight are:

Deployment Flexibility:

As cellular surveillance cameras are typically completely wire-free systems, they can be installed at practically any location.

The only limitation of where a cellular camera can be deployed is the availability of a 5G/4G network, which is becoming a smaller and smaller portion of the US every day. 

WCCTV's cellular-based surveillance units are plug-and-play systems, so they can be installed and ready to stream in a matter of minutes. 

They are also incredibly easy to move from location to location should your monitoring requirements change.

Remote Viewing Anytime for Anywhere:

When utilizing a mobile surveillance unit from WCCTV, you get license-free access to our mobile app and desktop software. 

This means you can view live or archived footage from your cameras no matter where you are, at any time of day. 

Having on-demand remote access to your cameras can significantly reduce your requirements for site visits, and dramatically improve situation awareness.

Access Your Security Cameras From Your Phone

Secure and Reliable:

Traditional wired surveillance cameras are a popular target for malicious hackers.

A wireless camera can be hacked through their Internet connection, and traditional security camera networks can be manually deactivated by removing their power source.

WCCTV's cellular surveillance cameras remove these risks as cellular cameras are nearly impossible to hack, and, as they are power autonomous, they will continue to operate during a power outage.
