Wireless security cameras are the cameras of choice these days due to the ease of installation as well as the fact that you can view the footage from anywhere.
An outdoor wireless camera will give you the freedom of not having to worry about a physical connection between your PC, TV or recording device.
There is no need to think about where cables should go (except for the power source) and installation requires minimal structural changes.
When there is no power source available, an alternative could be a battery powered unit that is self contained.
Another alternative is to buy a special adapter that will allow you to connect a battery to the camera unit.
The cameras are very easy to install and can be installed anywhere within the wireless range.

If you choose anyone of the top 3 units, you can’t go wrong, since most of our readers have bought one of the above three.
When we reviewed these security cameras, we were looking for a good price, best selling status, good quality, no negative reviews (this is almost impossible) and the best possible rating. It is almost impossible to find a product with 100% positive reviews, since no one product is perfect.
If you find a product with a 100% positive review, be careful. It is either a new product or the product has not been tried and tested enough.
✅Arlo Outdoor Wireless Camera
This security camera set is one of the easiest camera sets to install since it uses a “patented” 100% wire free design that mounts with magnets.
We are not exactly 100% sure how you can patent a wire free design.
Nevertheless, it is a wireless system that can easily be installed by yourself.
It uses batteries as a power supply which means that it does not have to be near a power source for installation.
This specific set has received mostly positive reviews with a lot of sales since this is also a best selling security camera.
Includes up to 1 GB cloud storage.
✅Ring Stick Up Cam Outdoor Wireless Security Camera System
This outdoor camera is a hugely popular system due to the fact that it has a two way radio.
You are able to speak to your visitor and your visitor is able to speak to you remotely… no matter where you are.
The actual video on the product page shows a burglar trying to enter a property and the owner asks “Can I help you?”.
Of course he was alerted by the motion based sensors that detected movement and an alert was then sent to him.
You should actually see the look on the burglar’s face as he leaves in hurry. Really funny.
If you are willing to fork out some monthly cloud based fees, then this security system could be for you.
✅See here why a lot of people chose this surveillance camera system.
✅ZOSI Wireless Security Cameras With DVR
The great attraction of this security system is that it is a complete wireless surveillance system.
It comes with a 1 Terabyte DVR hard drive that will allow you to record all the necessary details you require.

If you are looking for a cheap wireless surveillance camera, then this camera is one of the best for the price.
A nice feature is that live feed can be viewed by more than one user.
If you don’t want to install the camera yourself, someone else will install it for you at an extra charge.
When motion is detected, you will be notified by an alarm message and email so that you can quickly take action when necessary.
This is a single camera and the price per item is a bit higher that expected. Other systems as compared here are a bit cheaper per unit.
Still not a bad camera according to most user reviews.
✅Smonet Outdoor Wireless Cameras
This 4 camera set with a 1 TB hard drive is the ideal all in one wireless surveillance system.
The price is a bit higher than expected but we think that the price is still reasonable, since it also includes a standalone DVR.

Failed Wireless Security Camera Reviews!
Zmodo Wireless Security Cameras
At first glance, the price for this beautiful camera set looked good and it is also a best seller since quite a few units have been sold over and over again.
This would have been the top camera on our list and was to be highly recommended at the top spot.
However, upon closer inspection, consumer reports and reviews indicated a problem with the app used to run this system.
A second issue that came up is the poor customer support.
Based on that alone, this camera system is definitely not recommended.
We won’t even link to it.
