IP CCTV stands for Internet Protocol Closed-Circuit Television. It refers to a surveillance system that uses networked cameras to capture and transmit video footage over an IP network, such as a local area network (LAN) or the Internet. IP CCTV cameras digitize video signals and encode them into IP packets, which can then be transmitted over the network infrastructure.
At Videplus we strive to provide the best quality IP CCTV products & technical assistance during & after an installation.
Unlike traditional analog CCTV systems, which require separate cabling for each camera, IP CCTV systems use a single network cable (usually Ethernet) to connect multiple cameras to a network switch or a network video recorder (NVR). The NVR is responsible for receiving, storing, and managing the video footage captured by the IP cameras.
IP cameras typically provide higher resolution and image quality compared to analog cameras, allowing for greater clarity and detail in the footage.
IP CCTV systems are highly scalable, allowing you to easily add or remove cameras as needed. Since each camera connects to the network individually, it is relatively straightforward to expand the system.
IP CCTV systems can be accessed remotely over the Internet, enabling users to view live or recorded video from anywhere with an internet connection. This feature is particularly useful for monitoring security cameras from off-site locations.
IP cameras often come with advanced features such as motion detection, video analytics, facial recognition, and object tracking. These capabilities enhance the effectiveness of surveillance and can trigger alerts or automated actions based on specific events or criteria.
IP CCTV systems can integrate with other security systems and network infrastructure, such as access control systems, alarms, and video management software. This integration allows for a more comprehensive and centralized security solution.
