IP Surveillance


Network IP cameras connect to a computer network and act as video servers. This allows an authorized user to securely control the camera and view the video from any computer equipped with a web browser. Surveillance can thus be handled remotely from anywhere in the world, so long as a user has authorized access to the camera(s).

Some of the most common advantages of IP-based video surveillance as compared to analog CCTV are:

  • Password lockout of unauthorized personnel to prevent viewing images or altering the camera configuration.
  • Reduced system cost and added functionality due to general-purpose IP networking equipment infrastructure.
  • Lower cost of cabling in large installations (CAT5e instead of RG-59 coaxial cable).
  • Reduced space requirements because physically large and expensive video matrix switchers are not needed.
  • IP cameras have higher image resolutions and cover more area than their analog counterparts.
  • Capability for digital zoom of high-resolution megapixel images.
  • Independent trigger and frame rate control for each camera in a system, allowing control over storage requirements.
  • Ability to use Power over Ethernet allowing for one cable to handle power and data.
  • Remote access and control of cameras, including PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) functions.
  • Wireless compatible capabilities allow cameras to be placed nearly anywhere.
  • On-camera automated alerting via email or file transfer in response to video motion detection or dry-contact alarms.
  • Integration of video surveillance with other systems and functions such as access control, alarm systems, etc.
  • Remote configuration, diagnostics, and maintenance.
