Question: Can I "separate" my CCTV wired connection?

Hi, I currently have a 5-6 years old wired CCTV connected to my router in a landed house.

Questions:
1. What's the best way to secure my CCTV connection?
2. What are the pro/con between a wired vs wireless CCTV set up for a landed house? Wonder whether I should switch to a wireless setup up in the near future.

Thanks.

Can you CCTV be access via internet or just local view only?

Wired will be much more stable for CCTV/IP Cam as compare to wifi.

if you need a cheap method, for traditional ip cctv, set the camera and dvr to static ip under a different subnet (eg 192.168.1.x => 192.168.0.x)

If you can access you CCTV through the internet or remotely. Recommend to run all CCTVs under a seperate VLAN from other network. Run a quality firewall.

multiple ways but I think setting up seperate vLAN is a good idea like what TanKianW said BUT not all router support that features.

So you can create a vLAN "manually" with what miloaisdino said, to create different subnet and ONLY allow certain device to access that subnet.

As for Wireless or Wired, I always prefer WIRED but sometimes can be very troublesome to setup the wiring etc. Try WIRED, otherwise, no choice go wireless.

If you're concerned about security, the devices has to be secured physically.

Wired connection is recommended for secured transmission & speed.
