Good morning Joel,
My reasoning for possibly hardwiring is the following;
I don’t need/want to hardware my entire environment, just two cameras - front door and front outside wall that faces the front yard/street.
I’ve had to replace these batteries(once) already within the first month of purchase/setup.
But I contribute the early battery replacement to a lot of testing/tweaking and learning curve early on.
I want the two front cameras to basically trigger on everything; cars driving by, family, delivery drivers and or people I don’t know on my property and not have to worry about battery failure.
But I realize there are limitations to battery powered camera systems.
Other than that, my wife and I are 100% confident in this system and happy with our purchase.
