Wireless 2.4GHz band is 2.4-2.4835GHz
Consumer microwave ovens operate at 2.45GHz.

I don't even turn on the 2.4GHz band on my access point.
Everybody and their brother, (and their IoT crap), is on it, and it has only 4 non-overlapping channels.
The 5GHz band has 23 non-overlapping channels, and a hell of a lot less users.

2.4 is much more common than 5.4 and 2.4 has longer range.

In the past couple of years (like a year or 2), 5.4 is becoming more common for devices to support.

In Washington state I've heard that it's illegal to cover your neighbor's house directly with a recording camera but I haven't taken the time to verify that or what defines "coverage".

Because, other than a small part of a windowless wall (with that neighbor's permission) and a tall fence of another neighbor, I don't.

Any of my cameras that do view any portion of a neighbor's house, are pointed toward the public street, where the privacy issue is pretty much a moot point.

Yeah that's pretty much my range on one of them: down the open street of my short cul-de-sac up to my mailbox. And I didn't get any bargain with the $100 cheapie, sans HD, and with 4 cameras that don't provide the better night vision of the "Bunker Hill" brand setup w/HD, that a national chain store sells for $50 more. Even after finding, formatting then installing a suitable HD I've gotta put up more lighting than the "Bunker Hills" cameras would have needed........Those you sometimes have to recess into PVC or behind fabricated glare shields, because they are so light-glare sensitive.


And I don't do wireless 'internets' or cameras. For one thing I ain't nerd enough to set it up, some girls opinions notwithstanding. For another I don't want people that I know wondering where my cameras are. They are stuck outside where I wired them to stay put.

I initially started with 960 system, but I then decided to opt for an 1080p set up, after I viewed a male individual looking into neighborhood vehicle interiors one early morning by flashlight, since the 960 resolution was barely able to discern anything but highly visible features.

My cameras are hardwired as well, since the cost factor of my hardwired system was about half of a wireless system with half the number of cameras.
