IP Cameras with a network video recorder

IP Cameras with a network video recorder

IP Cameras with night vision is the best practice to install in all-new camera systems. The wiring will be supported for many years to come and sends power to the camera through a single wire. You can install the cameras using network switches which greatly reduce installation costs. Night vision is also much better than analog cameras.

Analog Cameras with a digital video recorder

Analog Cameras with a digital video recorder

Analog cameras are considered 'legacy' monitoring devices, but they're still used by many property owners. Analog commercial security cameras have less clarity than IP cameras. It's usually cheaper in the short term to replace these cameras with high-definition analog cameras using the existing wiring. The existing wiring isn't always installed correctly which often causes issues with the new digital-analog cameras. There are wire converters to make IP cameras work over coax analog wiring but they're expensive and generally end up costing close to the same as new wiring.

 

  • Best if the wire replacement cost is high
  • Lower Install cost when updating an existing system

Wireless Cameras

Wireless Cameras

Wire-free wi-fi cameras are great for a do-it-yourself project at home where an unsightly power wire is ok. Unfortunately in a business setting these cameras are not reliable due to interference from other wireless connections and the nature of the wireless technology being broadcast in a full 360 from the device. We reliably connect buildings wirelessly by installing a point-to-point bridge between buildings. 2 antennae are aimed at each other with a very narrow transition area. This ensures the signal does not have interference and is strong. Multiple cameras are hardwired back to these centrally located antennae.

 

  • No trenching or aerial cable needed
  • Any distance with line of sight
  • Compatible with any networked device

Video Management Systems

Video Management Systems

A VMS is much more advanced than an NVR or DVR. These are purpose-built security servers design with corporate security in mind. This software can enable visible gun detection, facemask detection, unusual motion detection, or even integrate with a guard's radio.

FAQ

 

Surveillance system costs can range from anywhere between $350 - $2,000 per camera for an average security system. However, some business security cameras can easily cost $4,000 to $15,000 with special features and functionality. Color night vision cameras cost a bit more to install but provide full color at night which provides additional information to the police.

 

A professional security installation company will have the correct wiring to use for the installation. Outdoor cameras should always use outdoor-rated cabling if it will be exposed. Aerial cable is used between buildings or to poles. Then there is varying quality cat5 wiring with different amounts of copper in them.

 

For new surveillance system installations, IP camera systems provide the best ROI. Video quality is the best on network video recorders. It doubles as a business security system and can help you see if your alarm panel has a false alarm. Some businesses prefer color night vision to ensure their security system provides as much evidence to the police as possible.

 

Dome cameras are NOT reliable outside. They have motion detection and the same quality video feeds as any other camera. They even have the same night vision. The problem is that they have a gasket that "seals" them. Some prefer domes because they're easier to aim exactly how you want with more Axis of adjustment. They work great inside a building. Outside, even professional companies mount them flat to a building which allows water to build up on the seal then freeze. Freezing water expands and breaks the seal then water will penetrate once it unfreezes. A good company will mount a dome upside down outside down to provide this camera the best chance of success. Even then most dome cameras have a foam piece that shrinks when it gets cold. Once they get older they can fail and cause IR refraction into the dome lens at night. A good professional company will standardize on Turret or bullet cameras for exterior camera locations. Some multi-sensor cameras have no choice but to be a dome camera but are built to better standards than a regular one.

 

Yes, some models have audio inputs or microphones built-in. All camera video feeds have motion detection, some have person, vehicle, face, or license plate detection. Some PTZ cameras have extended night vision and can lock onto a person and follow them automatically.

 

Yes, an NVR can work without being connected to the Internet. You just need to ensure that your business security cameras are properly connected to the NVR without problems. NVRs use local storage which you access remotely. It will still get the outputs from your property's outdoor and indoor cameras. Most small businesses want motion alerts that require an internet connection.

 

Basically, the difference between NVR (network video recorder) and DVR (digital video recorder) is what cameras they're compatible with. An NVR works with digital IP cameras, and a DVR works with full cctv analog or digital-analog security cameras. NVRs also have more features for proactive notifications or AI (Artificial Intelligence). Motion detection, night vision, and all other features work the exact same.

 

In a nutshell, IP cameras are better than analog cameras. IP cameras in a surveillance system have the latest technology and are more reliable in terms of motion detection, remote access, field of view, range, and resolution.

 

Technically, closed-circuit television can refer to ANY security camera system that records locally and isn't a publicly broadcast video. Many professionals use the term "CCTV" to refer to the old-style analog cameras. So in this case, the IP camera is considered a CCTV camera.
