Visible lag on security camera


 Share

Question

+jnelsoninjax

So my current setup is a PoE camera mounted and facing the door (second PoE camera is on the other side of the home watching that side), and a WiFi camera facing towards the road but also sees the door. While monitoring the cameras via Blue Iris, I noticed that when someone walks up and opens the door and comes inside, I see it in almost real time on the WiFi, but there is about a second delay on the PoE, which to me I would of have thought it would be the other way around (lag via WiFi) In both cases the physical distance from camera to router is ~30 ft, I have 50 ft of Ethernet cable running to the PoE camera not that I expect that would make any difference. Is the lag simply due to the camera? I.E. do the 'higher' end cameras have zero lag, or is the issue something more simple?

Have you personally tried both protocols? That should tell you what is best. I mean, it's not hard, right?
