As a business owner, having an adequate security system is essential. With CCTV surveillance, you can spend more time focusing on things that matter without worrying about theft or vandalism. Element security specialises in IP Surveillance Solutions and CCTV installation in Sydney. We offer a number of security solutions to meet the needs of home security and business security alike.
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) uses an analogue camera system that records video footage onto a local hard drive. Conversely, an IP security camera system records the footage and transmits it over an IP (internet protocol) network for storage and review if required. Aside from the way footage is stored and retrieved, there are a number of differences between the two systems which will need to be considered when selecting one for your home or business.
When it comes to video footage, quality and sharpness of the image is directly related to the number of pixels the camera can produce. An IP security camera is able to record in high definition with up to 10 megapixels, while a CCTV camera can usually only muster up to 0.4 megapixels. As a result, IP video surveillance systems provide a more detailed image.
IP surveillance systems need to be installed by someone with an intermediate level of networking knowledge, with large installations demanding more advanced networking and technical expertise. CCTV cameras, on the other hand, are quite easy to install as they do not need to be set up with a wireless network.
Given the quality of the camera and difficulty of installation, it’s no surprise that IP systems will set you back more than a CCTV installation. However, they can be a more economical option in situations where one IP camera can cover an area that would normally require two or more CCTV cameras.
All in all, both forms of surveillance cameras provide effective security solutions.
The major advantage of IP technology is that it offers higher quality video and wireless compatibility; conversely, CCTV cameras are a more practical choice when it comes to operation, installation and cost.
As specialists in the field of home and business security, the Element Security team can provide professional advice on what surveillance camera system best suits your needs and budget.
