Wired security cameras transmit video and audio signals through a wire to a central hub. The footage can either remain local on the hub for later viewing or it can be sent outside of the home to a network. The network allows users to view the video live or watch it later.

Wired security cameras receive their electrical power via a hardwired cable. This power might come directly from a power outlet. Or the power may be sent through the wire that connects to the central hub: the PoE cable.

The central hub is usually located in or around the home. The hub is sometimes a digital video recorder that is attached to the cameras with coaxial cables.

Alternatively, the hub may be a networked video recorder system, which is used with the newer Internet Protocol cameras. Instead of coaxial cables, the NVR system uses PoE cables.

With the prevalence of low-cost wireless security cameras, it’s easy to perceive wired camera systems as a thing of the past. This is far from true. Wired camera systems are a strong option for home security and they offer advantages over wireless systems.

The chief advantage of wired camera systems is that the feed to the hub remains safe. The signal will not break or degrade. As long as the wire is in place, the hub should always be receiving the feed uninterrupted and at maximum fidelity.

Wired security camera systems work well for multiple camera installations throughout many rooms of the house and to the exterior because the signal will not be impeded by walls.
