HOW DOES IT WORK?
IP based surveillance systems use existing networks and internet technology to transmit images from analog or IP cameras. You have access to live streaming video and still image transfer at a speed of 30 frames per second. This can result in a reduction in cabling costs as we are now transfering video and power (POE) over CAT 5e network cable rather than coax.

Some of the advantages of IP-based video surveillance include:
- Reduced system cost and added functionality due to general-purpose IP networking equipment infrastructure.
- Choice of open-platform video recording hardware and software.
- Greatly reduced system cost due to low-cost cabling in large installations (CAT5e instead of RG-59 coaxial cable).
- Ability to use Power over Ethernet allowing for one cable to handle power and data.
- Flexible and seamless support for a variety of standard and multi-megapixel image resolutions way beyond NTSC, PAL and SECAM.
- Transmission of commands for PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) cameras via the same cable.
- On-camera automated alerting via email or file transfer in response to video motion detection or dry-contact alarms.
- Support for different streaming media and compression formats to relieve transmission bandwidth and data storage requirements.
- Support for new embedded intelligent video motion detection with shape recognition/counting applied to objects, people, and vehicles.
- Integration of video surveillance with other systems and functions such as access control, alarm systems, building management, traffic management, etc.
- Future-proof installations with field-upgradeable products due to the ability to upgrade camera firmware over the network
- Motion detection features
- Criminals can be more accurately identified as IP cameras
provide superior resolutions.
- Easily expand and add on additional IP cameras in any
- IP Surveillance (Video + PTZ + Audio + Power = ONE CABLE).
