Home and business security camera systems need to be upgraded from time to time, in order to satisfy the increasing consumer demands. These demands are usually occasioned by evolving crime trends, an increase in human or vehicle traffic in and out of the home or facility, as well as the desire to increase the size of the area under surveillance.

How to Upgrade a Security Camera System

CCTV surveillance systems consist of three main components that can be upgraded, namely, the security cameras, the video recording system, and the CCTV network infrastructure.

1.    Upgrade Security Cameras

  • Upgrading from analog to IP security camerassecurity systems nyc
  • Installing additional cameras in the system
  • Replacing some or all of the cameras with more advanced security cameras. For instance, a user might decide to upgrade security cameras with higher resolution IP Cameras, or replace standard cameras with IR cameras.
2.    Video Storage System Upgrade
  • Upgrading from analog to IP video storage
Analog security camera systems use tape recorders and digital video recorder (DVRs) for video storage. Upgrading the surveillance system from analog to an IP based system will require the DVRs to be replaced with the more advanced network video recorders (NVRs).
  • Adding extra storage capacity

Any adjustments to the initial CCTV system installation including adding new cameras, changing the mode and quality of recording, or extending the video storage period will require the storage capacity to be upgraded. This can be achieved through various means, depending on the type of video recording system that is in place. 

3.    Network Infrastructure Upgrade

When making the switch from analog to IP surveillance systems, users have two main options pertaining to their network infrastructure, namely, to upgrade the analog network or to abandon it entirely in favor of IP network infrastructure. Upgrading the analog network involves using baluns to convert the analog cameras to enable them to work with IP devices. In addition, the ever-changing security demands may necessitate network upgrades in order to support additional cameras and CCTV equipment, as well as integration with other types of security systems.
