Cellular Video Cameras Powered by eSIM: The Future of Surveillance

Why Reliable Connectivity is Critical for Cellular Video Cameras

Cellular video cameras have become increasingly popular for a variety of uses. Whether it is for monitoring construction sites, parking lots, warehouses, wildlife, boats, commercial trucks, or even drone enabled surveillance, these cameras are being used all around the world. However, for these cameras to function the way they are intended, reliable connectivity is critical. In this blog, we’ll discuss how eSIM technology is enabling faster deployment of cellular-enabled video cameras and ensuring that these cameras remain connected to the best networks worldwide.

How eSIM Overcomes Common Connectivity Challenges

One of the biggest challenges with cellular-enabled cameras is the need for constant connectivity and eSIM offers benefits such as easy scalability and worldwide connectivity. Traditional SIM cards require extensive manual work to manage and can be time-consuming to set up, especially for larger deployments. This is where eSIM technology comes in. eSIM or “embedded SIM” technology makes it possible to connect cameras to the best networks on demand. With eSIM technology there’s no need to swap physical SIM cards. eSIMs are programmable and profiles can be easily switched OTA (Over-The-Air), making it easier to manage large scale deployments of cameras. The technology also provides global network coverage which can be leveraged to expand the reach of these cameras beyond the traditional cellular network coverage areas. eSIM technology provides a simpler and more flexible approach to remote SIM management. This means that if there are any changes to the network while the camera is active, eSIM technology ensures that your cameras can connect to the best available network. For example, if a 4G network is congested, eSIM technology ensures the camera can dynamically switch to a nearby stronger network. Read on to learn about some of the other key benefits of eSIM for remote surveillance cameras.

More Secure

Compared to Internet-based security cameras, cellular-enabled security cameras are more secure, making it difficult for intruders to hack into your video surveillance system. Additionally, battery/solar-powered cellular-enabled security cameras and systems remain functional even during unexpected power failures.

Fast Setup

Just like wire-free security cameras, cellular security cameras can be quickly installed by anyone in a matter of minutes. All you need to do is power your cellular security cameras and insert an eSIM card into the camera. With eSIM technology from Teal, you can easily connect your cameras onto any network worldwide at the click of a button. Ensure that your cameras have are connected to the best networks and switch between any global network over-the-air (OTA) with Teal.

Many cellular-enabled video camera options are available on the market, including LiveView Technologies (LVT),  Tactacam, and Samsara. These cameras are built to provide quality footage, reliability and to remain connected 24/7 in any environment. They are easy to install and come with user-friendly interfaces, so there is no complex setup involved.

Industries That Are Deploying Cellular Video Cameras

Cellular enabled security cameras are especially ideal for the areas where a strong Wi-Fi signal or hardwired ethernet and an electrical power source are not available. Always-on video cameras can provide further security and peace of mind for businesses across many industries including:

  • Retail
  • Infrastructure
  • Construction
  • Law Enforcement
  • Transportation
  • Agriculture
  • Wildlife
  • Government
  • Education
  • Entertainment
  • Property Management

When it comes to cellular-enabled video cameras, having a reliable connection is vital to ensure that the camera functions correctly. eSIM technology significantly simplifies and streamlines connectivity for these cameras, ensuring they remain online, providing high-quality footage throughout the day and night, adapting to the best networks on demand. With an array of cellular-enabled video cameras available, business owners and homeowners alike should consider deploying these cameras to add an extra layer of security to their property.
