Ranging from embedded to through-hole, to wall-mount form factors: you will find omni-directional and directional antennas tuned for a high gain at your desired frequency.

You can also find on our site, a very useful tool for cellular RF signal detection: the Snyper.

For further information, or to discover which antenna is best for you – please don’t hesitate in contacting us on: sales@theiotgateway.com or +44 1270 615999.

Please note: If you are looking at using another type of antenna, the use of an RF cable should be taken in to consideration. Due to attenuation, it is optimal to keep the length of RF cable between the antenna and the unit to a minimum. We offer low-loss cables for applications that require the use of a cable.

I think WiFi access is important to consider when purchasing electronic components for CCTV equipment. With WiFi, IP CCTV systems become wireless as cable connections are unnecessary. However, as security cameras still work effectively without WiFi, the difference depends on aesthetic tastes. Thanks for the blog!
