IP Network Security Cameras

One of the most popular type of camera systems available today are IP surveillance camera systems. These systems are also known as networked or PoE camera systems. IP cameras are the modern choice for security cameras today because they provide the highest video resolution in the market. Most IP security cameras come with night vision (IR), which allows them to see clearly even on the darkest nights. There have been many different types of night vision technologies introduced to the market. So it is crucial to pick the correct IP camera based on the location, light condition and camera placement. IP video surveillance systems bring many important benefits such as vastly improved video quality, better scalability, intelligent video, and lower cost of ownership.

Unlike the analog camera systems that operate over coaxial cable, IP camera systems transmit over Cat5/6 cable. This makes installation easier because you can send video, audio, and power all through the same network cable. IP camera video quality is measured in megapixels and can record high definition video up to 4K. These camera systems use a network video recorder (NVR), which records IP cameras that are transmitted via a Cat5/6 cable. IP cameras connect to an NVR by way of a network switch or router and some connect directly to the recorder itself.

There are many different types of NVRs, some record at lower frame rates and resolutions that don’t match the quality of your cameras. When picking an NVR it’s important to select one that will compliment the type of cameras you choose. Most NVRs allow you to record in three different settings, 24/7, motion activated, and via scheduling. The NVR recording can be retrieved by date or time, and viewed on any internet capable device.

Analog (HD over Coax)

One of the most common type of camera systems installed today are HD over Coax (Analog) surveillance camera systems. HD over Coax cameras are the economic choice in the security camera industry today. This type of surveillance camera system was developed specifically for the CCTV industry. This surveillance camera system allows HD video, audio, and data control signals to transmit over older RG59 analog cable. So, if you had a previous CCTV system installed and wanted to upgrade, you could use the existing wire. That is why this type of surveillance camera system is referred to as the more economic choice. You save money on not only the wire but the labor involved in running the wire.

Most HD over Coax security cameras come with night vision (IR), which allows them to see clearly even on the darkest nights. There have been many different types of night vision technologies introduced to the market. So it is crucial to pick the correct HD over Coax camera based on the location, light condition and camera placement. These camera systems use a digital video recorder (DVR), which records HD over Coax cameras that are transmitted via a RG59 cable. All DVRs convert analog signals to digital then compresses it, and then stores it on a hard drive for later retrieval. There is some intelligence built into DVRs to handle things like motion detection, scheduling, and digital zoom. Since power is not transmitted over RG59 cable, a power cable has to be ran alongside it.

This allows power to be transmitted to the camera. There are many different types of DVRs, some record at lower frame rates and resolutions that don’t match the quality of your cameras. When picking an DVR it’s important to select one that will compliment the type of cameras you choose. Most DVRs allow you to record in three different settings, 24/7, motion activated, and via scheduling. The DVR recording can be retrieved by date or time, and viewed on any internet capable device.
