08 Apr How to Connect your WiFi or Camera Over a Mile Away!
Through the use of fixed point-to-point technology and two access points, you can connect your camera or WiFi over extremely long distances. This allows you to keep your cameras off the same network so it doesn’t slow down the internet. Simply place two access points within a clear line of sight, and your IP camera can connect over a mile away! This is more common for barns and apartments to use the range wireless bridges.
But how do you do it? Here’s how to connect your WiFi or camera over a mile away!
PtP and PtMP
Fixed outdoor wireless communications focus on two primary deployment methods which distribute wireless: Point-to-Point (PtP), and Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP).
- Point-to-Point (PtP): Connects two locations within line of sight, usually at a distance of multiple km. Essentially forms an Ethernet bridge.
- Point-to-Multipoint links (PtMP): Connects three or more locations, using one Base Station (or Access Point) and multiple Service Provider devices (Stations) connected to the Access Point.
Base Stations and Range:
Base Stations should usually be located on the top of a tower, building or mast. The height will determine maximum coverage. When planning the Base Station, it’s usually ideal to plan for an antenna with the smallest coverage that still covers the desired area. Antennas with a wider beamwidth, covering a wider zone reaching more stations, may be more susceptible to interference. This would result in decreased scalability and performance.
The sleek Ubiquiti Wi-Fi Nanobeam pivots on a ball joint for mounting as well as alignment flexibility. While Incorporating innovative industrial design with proprietary airMAX ac technology, the NanoBeam AC works best for Networking deployments requiring maximum performance from the smallest possible footprint. Furthermore, it’s compatible with other Ubiquiti products found here.
Point to Point Directing allows it to connect through weather and other active frequencies. Furthermore, this design allows the connection to reach up to up to 15 kilometers (9.32 miles)! While producing up to 450+ Mbps(Mega-Bytes Per Second)!
We installed cameras from these two detached buildings without needing to hard-wire each camera to the NVR, connect each camera to the Wi-Fi, or trench wire. The Wireless Bridge technology enables connection to hard to reach locations while providing your home or business with quality connection.
