Do Environmental Factors Impact Your IP Video Surveillance System?

Posted by Sean Murphy on December 1, 2017

IP video surveillance system technology continues to surpass analog security camera systems. IP surveillance cameras have built-in capabilities that allow them to adapt to environmental conditions automatically. As a result, they can help produce quality surveillance video feeds for NVRs and trained live security monitors.

Outdoor Surveillance Camera Catches Late Night Trespasser in California

Suspect Hides Out at Union City Industrial Property

In this video, our trained IP video surveillance system operator helped lead Union City police to a late-night trespasser at an industrial property. At 1:05 a.m., a trespasser snuck onto the property. He examined several of the structures and equipment. The trained security operator called the Union City Police Department.

Officers arrived at the industrial property, but the suspect was not there. After further investigation, police discovered a hole in the metal security fence. Later that night, Union City Police officers found the suspect and arrested him.

The video surveillance system at this industrial site adapted to low light conditions. Many IP surveillance cameras have infrared capabilities, giving trained commercial security operators better visibility in lower light settings.

IP video surveillance system cameras can adapt to more than just lighting conditions. Many security cameras can function in extreme weather like flooding and strong winds. Stealth Monitoring's IP video surveillance system solution still operated during Hurricane Harvey. Some surveillance cameras can even function in sub-freezing temperatures, which is very important for clients in the northern United States and Canada.

According to a study titled The Influence of the Seasons of Crime Rate, there are more reported incidents of property theft in the winter months. Several reasons may contribute to these increased numbers. One theory is that there is more pressure to satisfy basic human needs like shelter and transportation when it's cold. Another potential factor is based on the job market. Seasonal unemployment reaches a high during the winter season. Concurrently, heat, clothing, and electricity expenses also increase and people may have difficulty paying these bills. This may fuel thieves with an inconsistent income.

An IP video surveillance system can help protect your property from theft and damage. Trained operators can look for unusual activity, activate a speaker alert, and call the local police.
