Should Your Upgrade To IP CCTV Cameras?

If you had your closed circuit television (CCTV) installed years ago, it may be time for an upgrade. Older analog systems are generally connected to a closed television monitoring system. The quality of the video is often grainy. Even if you experienced a robbery, it is hard to identify the suspect with the video image quality. New internet protocol (IP) CCTV cameras offer clearer images and easier access to the videos than traditional analogue systems.

IP CCTV cameras are able to capture clearer images than analogue cameras. The image resolution of a 2.0 megapixel IP CCTV camera offers a resolution about five times higher than its analogue counterpart. There are IP CCTV cameras which offer even higher resolution as well.

You can even have high definition IP cameras installed. The image is similar to that of your standard high definition television. If someone breaks into your business or your home, you will have no problem identifying them with the clear image produced by your high definition IP CCTV camera.

In addition to having higher quality images, when you update to an IP CCTV system, you have increased access to the video footage. With standard analogue CCTV systems, you had to watch the video on a closed circuit television system. With an IP CCTV system, you can view the video activity on your cameras through your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Even if you are away from your home or your business, you can check in and access the video feed.

The best part about IP CCTV systems is that they are extremely affordable. It now costs about the same to install an older analogue system or a newer IP system. For the same amount, you can have access to higher quality images that you can access on the go. If you want to stay on top of your security, install a new IP system.
