IP Security Cameras

 Mixed imageWhat is IP surveillance?

IP surveillance is a digitized and networked version of closed-circuit television (CCTV). In an IP surveillance system, an IP camera records video footage and the resulting content is distributed over an IP (Internet protocol) network.

Digitization offers a number of benefits over traditional analogue CCTV, including:

  • Improved search capability.
  • Greater ease of use.
  • Better quality images and no degradation of content over time.
  • The ability to record and play simultaneously.
  • The ability to compress content for improved storage.

Adding networking capability to security ip cameras provides additional benefits, including:

  • Improved ability for remote viewing and control. Anyone on the network can potentially see video from any camera connected to the network.
  •  IP Storage makes it possible to store data in any geographic location.
  • Greater ease of distribution. An image of a crime suspect, for example, can be immediately distributed to officials.
  • The ability to connect to email and other communications systems so that alerts can be sent automatically.

DCS-100_mainThere is a growing industry trend towards replacing analogue CCTV with IP surveillance systems. Not just because of the benefits above, but also because the gap in price between IP surveillance and traditional CCTV has reduced considerably.

Why do I need IP Security Cameras?

It’s the same old story….it isn’t until something goes wrong that you wished you had bought that insurance, locked that door, braced that ladder etc. The same applies with video Surveillance. In an ideal world we wouldn’t need it at all. But as we know we don’t live in an ideal world.

Of course cameras are useful not just for stopping or identifying dishonest behaviour. They allow you to be in more than one place at once, making you more efficient. And being able to access your images via everyday devices such as smart phones and tablets, has made it simple to keep an eye on what is important to you.
