The Ins and Outs of IP Camera Systems

There are currently two main types of security cameras available on the  market: IP camera systems and analog cameras. Here we take a look at the  differences between the two


Multiple Blue Rings

An analog camera captures an analog signal that’s sent along a coaxial  cable to a DVR (digital video recorder). In the recorder, the signal is  converted into a digital format. This is then compressed and stored on a  hard drive.

In contrast to an analog camera, an IP (Internet Protocol) digital  camera doesn’t require a DVR to function. Signals from the IP camera are  converted into a digital format inside the camera. The digital format  is then sent for viewing via a LAN (local area network).

Pros of IP Cameras

PROS: Higher Quality Images Added Extras (Regular Software Upgrades) Signals Straight to the Cloud Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) Easy Installation

Pros of Analog Cameras

PROS: Inexpensive Easily sourced Can easily replace existing analog cameras

Why are Lowcountry businesses selecting IP cameras?

The superior image quality that an IP camera provides makes it far  better at the job a security camera is meant to perform (capturing the  images of unauthorized personnel attempting to gain entry or remove  goods). If you’re a company that wants visual evidence that’s of sufficient quality to stand up in court, the IP camera is the way to go.
