IP CCTV Systems

IP based cameras are the future

They work by turning images and audio into data then transmitting this data over a network or Internet connection. The ultimate benefit of this over analogue CCTV systems is:

  • Greater Flexibility
  • Better Performance
  • Easier Installation

Whilst IP CCTV has been available for around 10 years...

It is only in the last few years that the technology has matured, leading to the developments in Mega-pixel IP. Read below for a summary of benefits of using IP based systems:

Greater Flexibility

IP CCTV systems do not require local recording, they can transmit their images across Local Networks, the Internet and Wide Area Networks to a central location, where they can be recorded, viewed and managed.

Better Performance

IP CCTV systems convert all images to data and have no theoretical limit to resolution, providing the relevant bandwidth to transmit the images exists. Our IP cameras offer especially high detail precision with Mega-pixel resolution, at least 3x better quality than standard analogue cameras. These are very affordable, with pricing equivalent to analogue CCTV systems.

Easier Installation

IP CCTV systems run over existing IP networks, wired or wireless, this makes wiring IP CCTV systems simple, causing less disruption, reducing the time required to install them and minimizing unsightly cables.

For anyone familiar with networking, setting up an IP based system is simple with intuitive operation and evaluation.

Simple 1 camera systems only require an IP Camera connected to a network/internet connection, and they can then be viewed by a PC using Internet Explorer. If POE (Power over Ethernet), IP cameras and networks are used, then the IP CCTV cameras do not even need separate power, they can be powered via the network cable.
