Security Camera Technology

IP (Internet) security cameras provide superior technology to older analog CCTV cameras that use coaxial cable. IP video cameras provide a higher resolution and a wider and deeper viewing field compared to CCTV cameras. The advanced digital technology of IP cameras enables excellent vision at high and low light levels during both daytime and nighttime.

Security cameras for commercial use are specially designed for high quality video that can watch and track people, vehicles, and their movement that may be far away and important details that may be small in size. Commercial cameras feature megapixel video resolution with superior lenses and imaging sensors. In addition to cameras, an effective video surveillance system typically includes a network video recorder (NVR) for video storage, lighting for superior night video, Internet access, network cable, wireless equipment, and affiliated system design, equipment, software, installation, setup, and training.
