Improve Safety With Low Light Wireless Security Cameras

Maybe you've been trying to catch the neighbor's cat sleeping ontop of your car so you can prove it has been scratching your convertible top, or perhaps you'd like a way to see who is at the front door when it's after hours before answering the door. Wireless security cameras are an effective way to get a visual preview of what's going on at the other end of the camera, working in conjunction with your home computer or even your smartphone to capture the evidence. Here's a couple of models offering wireless security...

Zonet Wireless IP Cam
Wireless 2-Way IP Cam w/Night-Vision. This Wi-Fi compliant with IEEE 2.4GHz 802.11b/g devices; supports both Infrastructure and Ad-Hoc Modes. We like that at least has 128-bit WEP and WPA-PSK encryption and that you can view and record video up to 16 cameras simultaneously with two-way voice communication. Additionally, you can capture video in super low-light situations, supporting 3x digital zoom, motion detection with 3 scalable windows, using web configuration with password protection. It has 6 IR LEDs for perfect night vision capabilities.

Cisco WVC210 Wireless-G PTZ
The Cisco WVC210 Wireless-G PTZ Internet Video Camera sends live video through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world. The camera supports dual codecs (MPEG-4 and MJPEG), which can be used simultaneously. MPEG-4 gives efficient bandwidth consumption with good-quality compression and is optimal for real-time viewing of video. MJPEG gives optimal video quality, making it ideal for large-volume storage to a network attached storage (NAS) device.

Swann NightHawk Wireless Security Camera
Designed to be a consumer level plug-and-play affair, the weatherproof Swann NightHawk offers 380 TV Lines of image resolution at up to 26ft of infra-red night vision. The system relies upon a wireless 2.4GHz transmission between camera & receiver up to 165ft/50m, and is meant to be hooked up to a television or compatible monitoring system. But note, unlike the other two systems above, this is not a wi-fi based system and might actually affect wireless networks (Swann also offer a wi-fi model called the ADW-300 offering similar nighttime vision and audio recording).
