What is an Analog Camera Security System?

An Analog Camera Security System uses analog video signals and transfer that signal over coax cable to a Digital Video Recorder (DVR) or a Monitor for continuous live viewing. Each camera is connected directly to the DVR or Monitor by using cable which bundles the video and the power together.


Who uses Analog Security Systems?

Analog Camera Security Systems are widely used in condominiums, apartment buildings, gated communities, office buildings, clubhouses, elevators, private residences, industrial sites etc. due to their cost effectiveness and ease of use.


How do I view my Analog Cameras?

A monitor can be connected directly to the cameras or to the DVR for viewing by a security guard, building manager, office staff, etc.

A DVR converts the images and stores it on a hard drive for retrieval. Intelligence is built into the DVR to handle scheduling, motion detection, digital zoom, remote viewing via the internet, etc. The DVR which stores the images can be set up to broadcast over the internet. The video for all of the cameras linked to the DVR are transmitted as one stream (one IP address). It is very efficient and secure for viewing.


How many cameras can my DVR record?

DVR's (Digital Video Recorders) come in a variety of sizes. Typically DVRs have 4, 8 or 16 channels. Each channel represents a camera. If you have a 16 Channel DVR you can record up to 16 cameras on that one DVR.

The amount of storage available is dependent upon the size of your DVRs hard drive (250GB, 500GB, 1 TB, 2TB, etc), the amount of cameras being stored and the resolution of the cameras.

What is an IP Camera Security System?

An IP Camera Security System captures an analog image and immediately converts it to digital at the camera itself. The digital video stream is then broadcast over the IP network using Ethernet cable. Each camera is connected to the cable which feeds directly into a network hub. The IP Camera signal is broadcast over the internet much like DVR signal. The difference is that each camera has its own unique IP address.


Who uses IP Camera Security Systems?

IP Camera Security Systems are widely used by large facilities with their own IP network dedicated to the camera system, especially if the cameras will be spread out over a large area or if wireless cameras will be used.

Casinos, Law Enforcement, Universities, large Nursing homes, Hospitals, large Office buildings, etc. are many of the ideal candidates for IP Camera Systems due to the additional set up requirements for an IP system.


How do I store images from my IP Cameras?

A high-powered PC with hard drive space is required to store the camera images.


How many IP cameras can I have on one system?

The amount of IP cameras on one system depend on your network's bandwidth. Video uses a lot of bandwidth and many facilities create an entirely separate IP Network to run their camera system. For instance, a megapixel resolution camera offers intense image clarity, however it uses a great deal of bandwidth.

The amount of cameras on the system and bandwidth requirement should be determined when considering the hard drive for the PC.
