Traditional, analog security cameras seem to be getting a short shrift these days with the wide-spread marketing of IP security cameras. However, there are major differences between the two types of equipment that can work for or against a user. So it's important to understand the differences, particularly in cost.

Side-by-side on a dollar bases, IP security cameras are going to cost 1.5 to 2 times what a consumer will pay for the same in analog camera format. They involve a newer technology, with more features and  thatSecurity Cameras NYC tends to make their price point higher. Furthermore, the cameras have an added on cost of licensing to actually use them and gain access to the Internet. That said, there are practical methods that can reduce the cost of IP Cameras and make them less expensive in use versus analog security cameras. One approach involves the wider coverage capability of an IP camera. Because it can observe a wider range, an IP camera can replace multiple analog cameras covering the same range of space. 

IP Cameras can offer up to 10 megapixels of resolution, which provides more detail and clarity compared to analog cameras. 

The downside to IP Cameras is that they tend to use a lot of bandwidth than analog cameras.  When installing an IP system, it's important to work with a company that can design a system to prevent your network from slowing down. A professional security camera company will be able to install an IP camera system that will not interfere with your existing network.   I-Tech Security has this expertise.

Analog cameras typically have fewer features than IP Cameras (such as digital zoom).  Also, analog signal is not encrypted, the quality can be less reliable over long distances, and typically max out around 700TVL of resolution on most recording devices.

IP security cameras installation cost (wiring) however will be about the same as an analog system. Many businesses will find that comprehensive use of IP Cameras will give them much clearer and thus more usable images than a standard analog camera system. A professional security camera company will be able to demonstate the two systems to you so you can see the different quality of the images before you make a decision to purchase. Make sure you have seen a demonstration of the system prior to the installation.
