Security camera FAQs

(Last updated April 2023)

Is it better to have wired or wireless security cameras?

When you’re installing a complete home security system, wireless security cameras are the way to go. With a hybrid wired Wi-Fi connection, your cameras can easily connect to and communicate with the other smart devices in your system. And because wireless security cameras utilize cloud storage, you can view security video remotely.

Integrated with your smart home system, Vivint wireless security cameras can even connect to your Amazon or Google assistant, like Google Home or Alexa.

The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro is both a WiFi security camera — connects to your system over Wi-Fi — and a wired security camera that you can plug in to a POE (power over ethernet) bridge. The Vivint doorbell and indoor security cameras are wireless.

Read more about what to expect from wired and wireless security cameras.

What security camera system is the best?

The best, most effective security system is one custom-built for your unique home—one that protects your property, privacy, and peace of mind. Vivint equipment packages, designed to fit your specific needs, range from basic protection to advanced coverage, and the customer has the option to customize.

When building your own security camera package, begin with the basics—the Vivint Starter Kit—then choose additional products to complete your smart home system. The Vivint Starter Kit includes a Vivint Smart Hub, $300 worth of security sensors, the Vivint app, and 24/7 monitoring, starting at $39.99 per month. You can add on security cameras, which can be paid for upfront or financed and added to your monthly rate.

Alternatively, equipment can be financed and bundled with 24/7 monitoring fees, requiring a five-year contract and monthly payment.

How do I install home security cameras?

Many of today's IP-based home security cameras can be installed, placed, and configured by homeowners without the need to hire a contractor. With Vivint home security cameras, the convenience of professional installation by Smart Home Pros is part of your smart home purchase. But once you have security cameras installed, you may want to make small adjustments sometime in the future, such as relocating cameras or adjusting angles. If you decide to do the work yourself, we suggest paying special attention to these four points:

  • Camera height — Mount cameras well out of reach to prevent tampering.
  • Signal strength — Make sure camera placement is within your WiFi range.
  • Power supply routing — The closer to the power source, the better.
  • Mounting — You want a secure and weatherproof attachment.
