With security becoming even more important for businesses regardless of the industry, a number of businesses have reached the point where they need to improve and change their current CCTV systems to IP CCTV.
This is commonly known as IP Surveillance. IP CCTV is a simple system of security cameras linked by a single network which allows businesses to monitor all areas of their property.
The IP CCTV allows businesses to stream live images of their property perimeter and keep them on a internet connection.
CCTV over IP can offer a host of advantages compared to standard analogue CCTV. Inexpensive to install and manage, IP CCTV doesn't need large amounts of wiring and the data images captured are very cheap to store. A great advantage to normal CCTV systems is that IP CCTV allows the users to quickly convert images into data and then sent via a network. Once saved on the network the data can be viewed through the desired data centre.
This kind of security system can also easily be integrated with existing analogue CCTV camera systems, meaning that you will not have to undergo large changes to your current system to reap the benefits of IP CCTV. When it comes to using the system often IP CCTV offers far more flexibility when it comes to capturing clear images, along with higher resolution when compared to analogue CCTV systems.
The technology of IP CCTV means that businesses don't need to spend hours looking through footage and images because they have more control over the original footage from the very beginning - each individual camera has its own unique IP number which makes cross referencing cameras a breeze. All of the data gathered is saved onto one network, which makes it much easier to search for the correct date and times thus making your life much easier.
One of the main advantages of IP CCTV is that the images can be accessed from any browser if the desired user has the correct login information. The cabling is much easier to have installed by a company than you may have thought. This means that rather than traveling to the office security guards can look at without having to leave the house. In addition to saving time, this also allows managers to subtly access the images without raising concern with individuals in the office. structured cabling is an essential part of the system and if done correctly will provide you and your company with the tools to monitor security seamlessly.
Popular with businesses in all industries including construction government and retail - IP CCTV can be installed in a range of existing buildings by qualified CT technicians. IP CCTV is mostly used on new builds to offer businesses high quality security from the beginning of their contract, which will allow them to be one step a head of security breaches should anything come to light in the property. What's more important is that the IP system can run along side multiple network connections without disrupting others.
The IP CCTV system can save businesses hundreds of valuable pounds a year if fitted correctly. The number of companies looking to have IP CCTV installed in today's business world means that it is expected to take over existing systems.
