Wire free video surveillance is a major trend amongst consumers.
But wire free systems tend to be designed for few cameras, lower resolution and short battery life (related see IPVM's Blink test, IPVM's Netgear Arlo test, IPVM's Hikvision Ezviz Mini Trooper Test).
FLIR's Lorex has introduced their 'Wire Free Security Camera System', kits including up to 6 cameras claiming 6 months battery life, 1080p video, and 450'+ wireless range. And FLIR is bullish enough about this offering, their executives cited this on their most recent investor's conference call (see FLIR Security Business Struggling).
Our test coverage :
- Wireless range: How far can it really reach vs its high specification?
- Image quality: Was the image quality impacted by its use of wireless and battery operation?
- Battery life
- Integrated IR performance: How good was low light performance?
- Physical construction: What, if any, quality issues were detected?
