Easy to Use
Can you use a computer mouse? If so then you can use IP video. IP video systems have easy to use menus that can make first-timers look like experts.
IP cameras are digital end to end, and use progressive scanning to make full use of camera imagers – providing up to 25% more resolution than analog cameras with similar imagers. IP is also available with Megapixel cameras, delivering super-high resolution images with 30 frames per second of real-time video.
Lower Cable Cost
Analog cameras can require up to three cables – video, audio, and power – for each and every camera. IP cameras can transmit all three (and more) on a single network cable. Even better – cable is less expensive, a single cable can handle 4-8 or more cameras, and network cable is probably already wired throughout your building. That results in significant savings – especially considering the cost of copper these days.
Like computer devices and programs, IP gear is easily updated for new capabilities and compatibility as technology advances.
Continual monitoring of live activity is quickly becoming an expense of the past. IP systems can easily alert personnel when problems occur by sending live video to laptops or even cell phones for immediate review. This functionality can also be used for non-security applications, such as customer service, deliveries, work-flow monitoring and more.
