Ring Cameras and Wifi

Active Insite Company Blog Santa Fe NM, April 4th, 2024

Recently we were invited to a property with several ring cameras. The occupants complained about slow wifi in the house, though a previous company had installed several access points.
Slow Wifi Speeds

During our investigation it was found that the 7 ring cameras onsite were interfering with the wifi. Even though the Access Points were rated at gigabit speeds, the continous cloud streaming from multiple devices was enough to bring wifi speeds to a crawl. We offered the customer a wired surveillance system, and instead they opted for twice as many access points, with a network specifically for the ring cameras. This worked, though it is not something we recommended as the EMF noise floor was quite high at that point. With technology, the harder it is to install, the better the result. While cameras like Ring and Arlo might work for your front and back door, lining your property with wifi cameras usually does not end well.

Custom hidden surveillance cameras, powered by Axis F series technology, are cleverly concealed within outdoor lamp posts.

When motion is detected via a PIR motion sensor, the low-voltage lighting system activates the lamp and simultaneously triggers the Axis camera and surveillance software for recording.
