Frequently Asked Questions
- What's Included?
We install 1 through 8 Cameras, a 2TB or 4TB Recorder (depends on the number of cameras you order). We connect the Recorder to your Internet router and configure your video management software. Then we show you how easy it is to use!
- Wireless vs Wired
What’s the difference between a wireless security camera and a wired one? Is one better than the other? There are pros and cons to both types. With a wireless camera, there are no cables to worry about, but you will have to plug the camera into a nearby power source. With a Wired camera, you will have to connect a cable between it and the recorder, but, a wired camera gets its power from the same cable, leaving you with more flexibility about where you place the camera. Wireless cameras are susceptible to interference, whereas wired cameras are not. Wireless cameras tend to be less expensive than wired cameras and are easier to relocate. Wired cameras typically produce better image quality.
- Alert Notifications?
Can I be alerted when my camera(s) detect something? With video motion detection cameras can be configured to alert you when activity occurs.

- Video Storage?
Where are my video recordings stored? The Companion Security Camera System records and stores footage on the Recorder that comes with the system. Is that better than storing footage in the Cloud? It’s a matter of control, convenience and cost. Storing on a recorder gives you more control, while cloud storage is convenient. Do compare the cost of the recorder to the cloud service subscription cost as they all vary.
