There are many types of security cameras on the market now. They carry different functions, and some of them are with AP hotspot function. What is AP hotspot? And what are the benefits?
AP is the abbreviation of access point, which is equivalent to a bridge connecting wired and wireless networks. Its main function is to connect various wireless network clients together, and then connect the wireless network to the Ethernet.
A camera with AP function means that the camera itself can send out a Wi-Fi hotspot. After power-on, it will send out a WiFi named after the camera's ID number. The mobile phone forms a local area network with the camera by connecting to this WiFi, and the camera is connected to the mobile phone by searching the local area network.
One of the biggest benefits of a camera with AP hotspot function is that when the home is suddenly disconnected from the Internet, if the mobile phone is connected to the camera through the AP hotspot, the picture taken by the camera can still be seen on the mobile phone within the range where the signal can be received. No need to worry about the phone being disconnected to the camera when the power is cut off. Just check the phone screen, you can clearly know the situation of your home
The wireless camera with AP hotspot function is a very important part of all wireless security cameras. It is safer and more convenient, allowing you to enjoy the fun of wireless security cameras.
