The purpose of security cameras is to capture footage, especially in any vulnerable or high-crime places in and around your building. You have several basic security camera options to choose from:
Wired security cameras use cables to transmit footage and conduct video surveillance, but the signal can weaken when the transmission range exceeds 300 meters. Using the appropriate networking cables, switches, and signal boosters can help overcome this problem. Several cameras can be interconnected to a single monitor located in a security room.
Analog cameras have been around for years and are still the most common type of CCTV camera installed today. They have basic functionality and store video onsite.
IP (Internet protocol) cameras carry out the same functions as their analog counterparts, but with vastly greater capabilities. IP cameras boast sharper, higher resolution images and more flexible features like remote zoom and repositioning. They also give you the option to view footage on a web browser. This makes it possible to receive notifications regarding anything peculiar your cameras records—such as movement inside your business at 3:00 am—and view it live from anywhere via a computer or smartphone. The major drawback of IP cameras is their higher price tag.
STRUCTURED CABLING SERVICES
All CCTV systems require some amount of cabling, even those with wireless cameras. Cables link different pieces of equipment together, including monitors, recorders, modems, and wired cameras.
