At Nova Alarms, we provide our customers with the highest quality installations using IP cameras instead of analogue cameras. But why should you choose IP cameras over analogue CCTV, what are the advantages of IP cameras?
Also known as Wi-Fi cameras, an IP camera is a digital video camera that sends data over an IP network. This means that you can view or record footage through a web portal, enabling you to check up on your cameras through devices such as your smartphone.
As long as they are connected to both power and the internet, your IP cameras will provide 24/7 surveillance and recording.
This means that should you be away from your home or commercial property (such as going on holiday), your camera will continue to monitor and record your property.
This is in clear contrast to older CCTV models which use physical tapes to record, or even newer models that record onto digital discs.
With these styles of CCTV, if you leave your property for a length of time, you need to make sure the tape or disc has enough space to record whilst you are away, otherwise, you’ll have a period of time where your cameras are effectively just sitting there.
Thanks to their internet connectivity, IP cameras allow you to check and monitor your property anytime anywhere.
Using a smartphone, you can quickly check previous recordings, watch live feeds from your property, and more.
Some IP camera systems even allow for motion sensors to send alerts to your smartphone should movement be detected.
The peace of mind this ability gives is extremely beneficial. If you’re away from your home or business for an extended period of time, you no longer have to worry ‘if everything will be okay’ thanks to smart CCTV cameras.
Another clear advantage associated with IP cameras is their flexibility. They can be positioned almost anywhere, whereas analogue CCTV is more restrictive.
Due to this, you can position your cameras in the most advantageous spot, this allows you to cover any blind spots on your property.
As previously mentioned, analogue cameras store data physically, which necessitates a physical storage solution, taking up valuable space.
However, IP cameras typically store data using the cloud. In addition to enabling wireless access, it also provides an extra level of security as the physical tapes themselves cannot be stolen.
The IP cameras used by Nova Alarms have superb image quality. Providing you with a clear vision of your property, and peace of mind in the knowledge that should the worst happen, and an intruder commits a crime on your property, you will have high-resolution footage, ready to provide to the local authorities to assist them in their investigation.
