Home and business surveillance systems come in many types, designs, and styles. Every application will require users to carefully consider their options, such as camera types, video storage systems, as well as specialized features. Fortunately, modern technology has led to a sharp decline in the cost of CCTV cameras and other security equipment. As a result, users are able to find an ideal surveillance solution that satisfies both the needs and budgets of individual, small business, and large enterprise security applications.

The Common Video surveillance Options

1.       Stand-Alone (Single-Point) Surveillance

This refers to a basic security camera installation consisting of one or two cameras, recordingVideo Surveillance Options to a DVR. The user may also include a CCTV monitor or television set to allow for viewing of surveillance footage. This type of installation is analog based, and thus lacks some of the advanced features and capabilities that are offered by IP-based systems. This setup is ideal for low-budget applications such as those for individuals, homes, and small businesses.

2.       IP-Based Video Surveillance

IP security systems consist of advanced cameras that operate on the regular computer networks. The cameras, video recorders (NVRs) and other CCTV equipment integrate seamlessly into existing computer networks to become independent devices. As such, it is possible to access the cameras from both the local network and over the Internet. This type of video surveillance system is best suited for business security applications, since it allows users to host and manage multiple security camera installations regardless of the geographical location.

Passive vs. Real-time Video Surveillance

Passive CCTV system: A passive surveillance system is deployed to record video for future viewing. With this option, users only retrieve the video for viewing post-event. As such, passive systems come in handy when investigating crimes and other incidences.

Monitored CCTV System: Sensitive security applications may require the users to have people monitoring the surveillance video in real time. IP Cameras are crucial in setting up monitored systems because of the remote viewing capability. Alarm monitoring companies such as I-Tech security rely on remote monitoring to verify threats and attacks that warrant an urgent response.
