The traditional analog CCTV Systems present a great challenge when it comes to restricting unauthorized access. The only mechanism that business owners can use is to physically, restrict employees and other people from accessing the security cameras, or the control room. However, the introduction of the more advanced IP surveillance systems provides a complex, yet simplified solution to this problem.

How IP technology Addresses the Problem

The shortcoming with the analog technology is that, the security cameras capture and thensecurity camera access transmit raw video footage - the cameras lack video processing capabilities. For this reason, anyone tapping into the analog signal is able to view the recorded video.

IP Cameras on the other hand, come with advanced video and image processing capabilities, which enable them to encode the captured video and images into digital data formats before transmission. IP surveillance offers protection from hackers on two fronts:

  • Encryption: IP Cameras have the ability to encrypt the digital data streams before transmitting to the NVR, which in turn decrypts the video data to allow for viewing. As such, any hackers that tap into the signal are prevented from viewing the video images.
  • Password System: IP technology doesn't require special monitors to view surveillance footage, as is the case with analog systems. Therefore, the case for physically restraining employees from the control room does not arise. IP systems are more intelligent - they come with inbuilt security features such as passwords and firewalls to prevent unauthorized access.

The Effectiveness of the Password System

The fact that IP security cameras can be accessed remotely makes them vulnerable to attacks from hackers. However, the IP CCTV Systems offer a robust role-based password system that enables you to control access to the system. You can give each of your employees a different level of access, depending on his/her role.

For instance, you can assign an employee with "view only" rights, meaning that he/she can use his/her password to login and monitor the events being captured by the security cameras. However, he/she cannot tamper with the system settings or alter the video images.
