Wireless Webcam : What is it?

Wireless Webcams

Wireless webcams communicate with the computer through a wireless network or radio signals. They allow users to send or receive images from remote locations, without being physically connected to the computer. They may be used for personal communication or for security and surveillance. Some models are battery-powered, while others run on the computer's power supply.

Choosing Wireless Webcams (Buying tips)

Power supply: Choose a wireless webcam that runs on both batteries and computer power. This will allow you to reserve battery power for backup in case your computer fails. Look for one with a power indicator to alert you when the batteries need recharging or replacement.

Frame rate: Choose a wireless webcam with a frame rate of at least 24 frames per second (fps) to capture smooth movements. For recording fast action such as running or sport events, look for a frame rate of about 30 fps to prevent blurring.
