What is IP CCTV?

IP based cameras are set to revolutionise the way people think about CCTV. They work by turning images and audio into data then transmitting this
data over a network or Internet connection. The ultimate benefit of IP based systems over analogue CCTV systems is greater flexibility.
IP based systems deliver better performance, easier installation, improved systems integration and ultimately mean better value.

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 Megapixel IP.

Being IP they integrate into the network and work via the Network cabling and/or Wi-Fi set up and alerts can be set up to allow remote viewing and notification via laptops and mobile phones. It can be used in conjunction with entry systems to visually see who is trying to access the premises.

In conjunction with a telephone system it allows communication to be established with the person from any phone on the system. Storage is via a server or P.C so no discs and tapes to get damaged and lost and backups can be locally or remotely stored. Uses include:
