Network or IP (internet protocol) surveillance systems are becoming the standard for demanding situations that require the identification of a person or object in a scene at a distance or in precise detail.
IP Surveillance systems simply refers to a digital video camera that can send and receive data via a computer network, as opposed to sending a feed to a Digital Video Recorder (DVR), which is done with analog systems.
The benefits of IP Surveillance:
- Superior Image quality- The resolution and image quality allows the user to more closely follow details and changes in images, making way for better and faster decisions to more effectively safeguard people and property.
- Accessibility- Being a network system, you can access real-time video from anywhere in the world so long as you have an internet connection to your facility or property. This connectivity also allows APS to monitor and support the system remotely.
- Scalability- A network video system can grow with a user’s needs - one camera at a time, while analog systems can often only grow in steps of four or 16 at a time
- Quick, reliable installation- With only one cable needed per camera installation is fast and efficient.
