CCTV for Businesses
We all know that businesses need to be protected, even the most basic. This protects your business and other people’s livelihoods. However, a slightly more costly kit-out can provide many benefits that will make your life easier and less stressful.
What is IP (Internet Protocol CCTV)?
IP CCTV (Internet Protocol Closed Circuit Television), is a digital camera that records live footage. If your alarm is triggered, it will send you notifications from your WiFi.
1. An analog CCTV system is obsolete
Older systems are more expensive to maintain because of the maintenance costs associated with upgrades and replacements. Old systems are less reliable over time. It is important to look elsewhere in the event that your current system fails you when you most need it.
2. Video Analytics
IP CCTV can capture a lot of footage. This is a great advantage because it doesn’t seem necessary or cost-effective to have someone watch the footage all the time. The only time you need to inspect the footage is when there’s a crime. If you’re fortunate, that could be almost never. The software will alert you if your alarm goes off, giving you back control. This software allows you to view your cameras and determine what next steps should be taken.
3. Remote monitoring
Remote monitoring has many advantages. You can monitor the cameras from anywhere you are. Remote monitoring from an ip camera is ideal for people who travel with their work. You have complete knowledge of what’s happening, even if your not there.
4. It is easy to install
It is easy to plug-in and have everything running in no time. You will need to download software if you want to access other devices’ cameras. This will take only a few seconds.
5. Flexible and adaptable
The scale can be adjusted with ease. If you need more cameras to place in difficult-to-see areas, they can add them one at a time. This is a far better system than the old systems that required you to increase your scale by four or sixteen units at once. There are two options for connecting to the internet: wired or wireless.
6. Use your existing infrastructure
You can save some money by preserving the basic structures that you used to keep your analogue system in place when you are removing it.
You don’t have to upgrade your existing system when you can get an IP CCTV that will keep watch 24 hours a day for you. It may also save you money in the event of a break-in. Burglars are quick to leave the scene and want to be out as soon possible. This could help you avoid having to pay extra for insurance or replace stolen property. This reduces the likelihood of you having to close your doors for any length of time.
8. Compliance with regulations
Many companies have to keep footage for a certain period of time. The old system’s footage must be kept on-site, which can prove dangerous. However, the footage from the new system is kept using an NVR (Network Video Recorder), which is much safer.
9. Image quality
IP CCTV is more accurate than analog, and can zoom in on faces. This is ideal for catching criminal activity.
