When purchasing security camera systems, most consumers focus only on finding the best hardware - security cameras and equipment - but do not take time to evaluate the IP Security Camera Software. The software acts as an interface between the user and his/her surveillance equipment. As such, failure to choose the right software application results in limited performance. Users never get to experience the full power of their surveillance systems.

Factors to consider when selecting IP Security Camera Software

1. Cost: Cost is always an important factor when purchasing any product or service. In the case of IP security camera software, users have a choice between the software that is usuallyIP Camera Software bundled with most CCTV Systems and third-party software solutions. The cost of the bundled software is not usually quoted separately; this gives the impression that it is freeware. On the other hand, third-party security camera software is usually sold as a stand-alone product and thus, might be seen as more costly. However, the third-party software solutions are usually more powerful and offer extended functionality.

2. Functionality: The wide variety of video surveillance software available offers different levels of functionality. Home users can benefit from the simple features and functionality that come with the bundled CCTV software. Business users on the other hand, have more specialized video processing requirements, which may necessitate additional functionality that is not offered by these basic software applications. Some of the additional functionality includes:

  • Facial Recognition
  • Vehicle Number Plate Recognition
  • Remote viewing

3. Compatibility: Professional-grade IP security cameras are very easy to integrate with other home and Business Security Systems. In addition, users can monitor and manage their security cameras using a range of devices including tablets, laptops, and smartphones. However, the selected CCTV software must be sufficiently flexible to allow users to interface all these security devices and Operating Systems on one platform.

4. Security: IP surveillance systems are exposed to various security risks owing to their accessibility from over the Internet. However, users can adequately protect their security cameras and equipment through their IP camera software.  Some of the security features that CCTV software can offer include data encryption and password systems.
