Business owners have the task of protecting their property, visitors, and employees from crime while managing company operations. Depending on your type of business, the unpredictability can make these tasks difficult.
As social unrest escalates more daily, safeguarding your business against vandalism and other crimes is critical. You need the right tools in place, and you likely already deploy video surveillance, but if you still have analog cameras, your hardware is outdated. Bring the future to your property by upgrading to Internet Protocol cameras (IP).
The Benefits of IP Video Surveillance
IP surveillance cameras have many benefits over analog cameras. Here are some of them.
Picture Quality and Resolution
High-definition Internet Protocol cameras have a higher-resolution, so they aren’t as blurry and grainy as analog cameras. Technology continues to increase the megapixel resolutions that security cameras come in, which gives them better zoom-in capabilities. IP cameras today offer from 1080p to 4K.
Low Maintenance and Flexibility
IP cameras reduce costs by eliminating the need for tapes, cataloging, and other video equipment. Antiquated DVR setups are a thing of the past. With IP video cameras, you can add more cameras to one switch that’s connected to the Network Video Recorder (NVR). You also need less cable for installation.
IP Cameras are More Secure
Analog cameras are easier to hack while IP video footage is authenticated and encrypted. This extra layer of security ensures the transmission of your data is always reliable and secure.
IP video cameras are much easier to access. If you have an internet connection, you can access your cameras and footage from anywhere. There’s no need to run to work to get critical video footage or check camera footage. In fact, sharing videos from the cloud is even easier with IP cameras.
Digital cameras on IP systems can cover more areas than multiple analog cameras because they have a wider view field. Also, analog security cameras lose definition as distance increases making their range limited.
These are just a few of the great benefits of IP video surveillance. For more information on upgrading your video surveillance system, contact IDS Alarm Services.
