The Benefits of Switching from Analog to Digital Security Cameras

IP digital cameras

Switching from analog to digital security cameras can significantly improve your security system.

For the best security system, you will want to convert your existing analog system to a digital IP-based security design. Security cameras, in particular, can be affected by this change and significantly improved. An improved security camera system can help your facility maintain crystal clear and low-loss security footage for multiple locations around your property. FiberPlus has extensive experience with IP-based security designs and can help you reap the following benefits of digital security cameras. 

Multiple Sensors

IP digital security cameras can contain three or four cameras in one, which can cover a vast area that would typically require multiple cameras. Additionally, these sensors can go in as one signal through one cable in your system. These multiple cameras-in-one streamline your security system significantly.

The Costs Are Not Prohibitive

Like most technologies, as IP security cameras become more commonplace, their cost is coming down. This means that you can get entry-level IP-based cameras for a reasonable price and see if this system works for you. Investing in conversion to digital security cameras is often well worth the price, as fewer IP cameras are needed to do the same job as a higher number of analog cameras. 

Ease of Installation

While one analog camera requires two wires, an IP camera only needs one for data and power. You can also focus and zoom in on the camera from a remote location, so you don’t need to physically adjust the camera after choosing the desired angle and placement. 

Improved Resolution

The resolution in digital security cameras keeps improving every year. IP cameras have a superior image quality to that of analog cameras, and you can select from multiple cameras that offer different resolutions and aspect ratios for your needs. You no longer have to worry about grainy, unclear footage with new IP cameras. 

Intelligent Cameras

IP security cameras are essentially like small computers that can compress and store footage and are programmed to provide you with analytics. Different cameras can detect motion or smoke, count people, track specific colors, set off alarms, and sense when something disappears. Additionally, the video from IP cameras will be encrypted and authenticated to keep your transmission secure and free from hacking or other dangers. 

More Flexibility 

Digital security cameras offer you greater flexibility because they require less equipment and can be used with other technologies. You don’t need an encoder or decoder, and you can add new functions to your system much more easily. 

When you invest in IP digital security cameras, you can start building a smart, flexible, and effective security system
