High-Performance Video Surveillance IP Cameras
The Gold Standard in Video Security Technology
IP cameras are the latest revolution in high performance video surveillance. IP cameras, also known as Network Cameras, are Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras that use Internet Protocol to transmit HD quality image data signals over a Fast Ethernet link. IP cameras are used for surveillance in the same manner as analog closed-circuit television. IP Cameras have higher megapixel image capabilities, which allows for larger images and clearer quality.
Cutting Edge Cameras for Your Security System
IP cameras can help increase security and improve safety across any business premises.
Choosing the Right Cameras
IP Cameras come in a wide range of models, and some are better suited for specific industries than others. However, all cameras in this category come with a number of benefits, including: high definition video recording (from 1080p to 4K), relatively simple installation, and the ability to install almost anywhere on your property. These cameras are built with simplicity and performance in mind, and have been put through testing to ensure they exceed industry standards. With so many options available, it’s important to consult with local security experts to determine which cameras are best for your needs and security goals, and how many cameras you’ll need for your premises.
Choosing IP Camera Accessories
Various accessories may be required to get the most out of your IP cameras. Popular accessories include mounting brackets to allow for installation in more places, microphones, and speakers. If you’re installing cameras outside, you may need weatherproof housings to protect your cameras from sun, rain, hail, and wind. Additionally, well-build casings can keep animals and insects away from the delicate components to help prevent damage. Similarly, heavy-duty casing can help prevent or reduce damage caused by vandals and thieves that intrude on your property. A security specialist can help you decide which accessories are best for you based on your unique needs.
Specialized IP Cameras
While all IP Cameras can supply you with high-definition video streams and recordings, some cameras are built with extra features. Recording in low-light conditions can product less-than-ideal results, but night vision enhancements can utilize IR (infrared) illumination to capture video clearly at night. An alternative to IR cameras are Thermal Imaging cameras, which record video based on the energy emitted from objects. These military grade cameras can be see through smoke, rain, fog, and other obstructions. PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) IP cameras allow operators to pan across an area, tilt up and down, and zoom in to get a better look at any suspicious activity.
IP Camera Integration
IP Cameras can improve any security system because they can be integrated with other technologies to help keep your premises safe. These cameras can be integrated to work with facial recognition systems and access control systems to help ensure only authorized personnel can access areas of your building and property. In addition, these cameras can be integrated with an intercom system to allow one or two-way communication. They can be integrated with motion sensors to allow panning, tilting and zooming (if using PTZ cameras), and can stream video to a live security team and/or recorded and archived onsite or in the cloud.
For All Your Video Surveillance Needs
3D Security, Inc. has experience integrating IP cameras in security systems for businesses of all types and sizes.
IP cameras can improve security systems for just about any company or organization. They can be installed almost anywhere and can be equipped and customized based on your unique needs and security goals.
In cases of suspicious activity, IP cameras allow for further enhancing and zooming into the recorded images to search for clues and evidence when necessary. Video recording can be transmitted through a network and made viewable through an internet link. This allows for 24/7 remote accessibility of images or live video which may be viewed from a computer or mobile device from virtually anywhere. Any number of IP cameras can be deployed together with a network video recorder (NVR) to form a video surveillance system. That extends to multiple locations with no regard to the camera location.
However, choosing the right IP cameras for your needs can be daunting. It can be difficult to know which cameras and accessories will best suit your needs, how many cameras you’ll need to effectively surveil your property, where to install your cameras for maximum coverage, and how to integrate the cameras with your existing security system.
