Outdoor Wireless Cameras for Enhanced Security: South African Options and Installation Tips | Betafence SA

When it comes to security in South Africa, one of the best things you can install along your fence are outdoor wireless cameras. At Betafence, we often sell these cameras in conjunction with fencing mesh and other fencing material products, as the two go well together. 

Let's take a look at what kind of wireless security camera we recommend, as well as how to install it.

The Lymeta & Co Outdoor Wireless Security Camera

We supply the Lymeta & Co outdoor wireless security camera, which features a solar panel to keep the camera powered at all times. This advanced camera system allows for remote viewing capabilities, giving users access to live footage on the camera at any time using a simple smartphone or computer. 

The high-resolution video output at 4MP QHD ensures that clear and detailed footage is available to the owner, allowing them to see perimeter breaches or property activity with precision. 

Importantly, this camera offers day and night vision using advanced infrared LEDs that provide visibility in low-light conditions or even complete darkness, facilitating excellent round-the-clock surveillance. 

In addition, these cameras facilitate push notifications and video playback on mobile devices, so that recorded footage can be accessed at any time, and notifications can be given of incidents occurring in real time.

How To Install These Cameras Optimally

Strategic Placement

The most important thing to consider when installing an outdoor wireless camera for security purposes is to position the camera in such a way that it provides optimal coverage of the area. 

The angle of view, potential obstructions, and the range of the wireless signal need to be taken into account when choosing your placement.

Secure Mounting

Once you've chosen a location for your camera, ensure that the camera is securely mounted to a stable surface. Ideally, it will be mounted high up in a position where it cannot easily be reached to ensure that it is not tampered with or accidentally dislodged. 

Install the camera according to the instructions, using the appropriate mounting apparatus, and consider using tamper-resistant screws to ensure that it cannot be tampered with.

Wireless Connectivity

As mentioned, it's critical to ensure that the camera is positioned within range of the property's Wi-Fi network to ensure a stable wireless connection. If it is placed too far from the router or in an area where there is significant interference, the quality of the connection could be compromised, as well as the reliability of the footage.

Regular Maintenance

Once you've installed your camera and ensured that it operates correctly, schedule regular maintenance to ensure that the camera can function optimally for as long as possible. This means periodically checking that the solar panel is charging the battery correctly and cleaning the camera lens to ensure that dirt, dust, and debris don't compromise the video footage quality.
