Hi Andy here, in today’s post i will be looking at wireless routers.
Part of, in fact a very important part of your DIY home security cameras system is the wireless router, if you have no idea what i am talking about let me try to explain a little about your home wireless network.
First you have the internet which come into your house through a little thing called a modem.
This item is effectively the gateway to and from the internet so that you can watch YouTube videos and send out email to your friends and family telling them about the great YouTube video you just watched 🙂
Next most people these days will have a wireless router such as a Netgear Wireless Router
Like the one shown above, which is what they call a high end router, That means it may be more expensive than some other routers ( I have a Netgear Nighthawk router myself) but the money you pay is well worth it, because it is capable of doing so much more than a little cheap router that will not allow you to stream 2 or 3 movies at the same time or handle multiple wireless security cameras trying to connect to it.
So, the internet traffic comes into your house via the modem then the modem is connected to your wireless router which broadcasts a wireless signal around your house so that you can connect to and from the internet via your iPad, cellphone, wireless cameras etc etc, Still with me?
OK, so your wireless cameras are broadcasting a signal that can be picked up by your Netgear Wireless Router after you have synced them together of course ( I will produce a video shortly on how to connect your camera to your router) and that will allow you to be able to view what your camera is seeing, even from half way around the world.
I hope that this makes sense to you, and as always please feel free to contact me with any questions or problems related to your Netgear wireless router, or indeed any other aspect of your DIY home security cameras system.
Till the next time, be safe and God bless.
