Expanding Business Security Camera Systems

Analog camera systems are designed to support security cameras in multiples of four i.e. 4, 8, 16, or 32 channels; the number of channels represent the number of video inputs that are available on the DVR. Expanding an analog camera system is a bit tricky because users are forced to invest in higher capacity hardware than they may require. For instance, if a business needs to expand its security camera system from 4 to 5 cameras, it has to invest in an extra 4-channel DVR, or upgrade to an 8-channel DVR that can support the additional cameras.

IP surveillance systems on the other hand, are very flexible when it comes to expansion. Once the network infrastructure is in place, professional grade IP systems can handle any number of security cameras ranging from 1 IP camera to hundreds of cameras. IP camera systems support single camera increments.
