Stable and reliable
There is no need to worry about the power outage or the disconnection of the network, which will cause you to be unable to view the video remotely. The 4G security camera provides 365 days of protection.
The cost of 4G security cameras is higher than that of WIFI security cameras. This is a problem you have to face. Due to higher technology, 4G cameras are not only more expensive, but also you need to buy a cellular data plan.
