IP Cameras for Business Owners
- Simple to set up and use
Can you use a smartphone or computer? IP security cameras can be set up within minutes making a tech novice look like an engineer
- Higher Resolution than standard CCTV
IP cameras are digitally streamed, scanning progressively to optimise camera images- allowing up to and above 25% more resolution and clarity than analog CCTV cameras with similar imagers. IP megapixel cameras, deliver high resolution footage with at least 30 frames. Ensuring excellent quality imagery.
- Lower Cost to You
Analog cameras can require up to three cables - video, audio, and power - for each and every camera. IP cameras can transmit all three (and more) wirelessly to a router or on a single network cable. With savings made from the non-use of cables and less labour in the set up. You save substantial costs.
- Future Proof your Business
IP gear is easily updated for new capabilities and compatibility as technology advances. Don’t waste money on analogue CCTV systems only for them to become obsolete.
- Lean and Efficient
Continual monitoring of live activity is quickly becoming an expense of the past. IP systems can easily alert personnel when problems occur by sending live video to laptops and smart phones instantly. This functionality can also be used for non-security applications, such as customer service, deliveries, work monitoring and more.
Today's IP video systems are equipped with on-board processors to analyse events in real-time, like suspicious or criminal activity and knows to overlook benign matters due to its sensor triggered software that alerts you by e-mail.
- Secure Transmissions
End-to-end, IP video systems encrypt your data to ensure your complete privacy, eliminating the need for expensive fiber optic cable.
- Reliable and Redundant
Paired with the advances in today’s computers, IP systems leverage decades of technical evolution to deliver proven reliability. IP video systems can be easily set up to store video at multiple remote locations for security against disasters and theft.
- System Integration
IP video systems can easily team with your alarm systems. Many can also integrate with lighting, environmental and access controls for a virtual presence anywhere. And thanks to industry standards and alliances, IP video systems are increasingly compatible across manufacturers.
- Infinite Distance
IP data travels exactly like computer data. Just as computers may communicate with each other from anywhere in the world via the Internet, a camera can be across the room or across the world and your recorder doesn't care.
No longer do you need to buy an entirely new recorder just to add a few extra cameras in problem areas. With IP video, you can add additional licenses for the recording software to match how many cameras you need when you need them. This can save thousands in comparison to Analogue systems, which often require a new DVR to add even a single camera.
- Backwards Compatible
IP technology allows you to leverage your existing cameras. Using video servers to convert standard cameras to IP, you can use your existing analog cameras in installation situations that would typically best be suited for IP.
Hybrid recording systems also allow the peaceful co-existence of IP video devices and analog camera installations. This allows you to continue to use your existing cameras, while expanding with IP cameras, reaping the benefits of the new technology, without having to replace entire security systems at one time.
- High Speed Recording
Analog cameras will often produce a blurry picture when recording video containing fast moving objects. IP video provides crisp resolution on every frame enabling effective investigation of events.
- Lower Total Cost
Considering that IP video can leverage your existing cabling and computer network infrastructure, the cost of installation can be half or more than an analog system. And given the added benefits and related cost savings provided above, the reduction in total cost of ownership can be significant.
