IP CCTV cameras are the best surveillance cameras you can install for your property. IP, which stands for internet protocol, means your CCTV system can transmit images and audio over a network or internet connection, giving you greater flexibility over traditional analogue CCTV cameras.
IP cameras are also easily integrated with intruder alarms and access control systems. This means your security and surveillance measures can work together to prevent criminal activity and prohibited access, or provide you with the evidence you need should your building’s security be breached.
Benefits of IP CCTV Cameras
There are many benefits to installing IP CCTV cameras instead of traditional analogue CCTV systems, which is why high security risk areas such as London St Pancras and Heathrow Terminal 5 have opted for this state-of-the-art technology.
Unlike analogue CCTV systems, IP CCTV cameras don’t have to record locally. Instead, they transmit their images across the internet or local networks, where they can be recorded, monitored and managed.
IP CCTV systems produce images as data, which means there is no restriction for the quality of the image. Analogue CCTV systems however, process images with a maximum of 414,720 pixels and therefore produce lower quality footage.
Easier Installation Process
Traditional CCTV cameras all need to be wired to the DVR or monitor, but because IP CCTV cameras are connected to a network or the internet, installing them is a much simpler process and creates less disruption than installing traditional CCTV systems.
An IP CCTV system can be connected to any other security measures you may have (subject to compatibility), such as access control and intruder alarms, enabling the systems to work together. Analogue CCTV systems are not connected over a network and therefore are unable to communicate with other systems.
Managing Multiple Sites
IP CCTV makes managing more than one site much easier. With a traditional CCTV system, you will need a recording device in each location, but with an IP system, you will be able to monitor and manage all your footage in one place.
