Business-grade video surveillance is usually either hardwired to a digital video recorder (DVR) or a network digital recorder (NVR); an analog closed-circuit television (CCTV); or in IP HD video camera technology where digital cameras connect via Cat5 (Networking) Cable and wireless cloud signals that records and displays on centralized monitors for viewing.

The Analog cameras system is a cost-effective solution compared to the IP system. It is built on older technology and uses coaxial cable to transfer the image from the camera to the Digital Video Recorder. The DVR translates the image from an analog signal to a digital signal and then records it. Even though today’s Analog cameras can reach some very nice resolutions, this technology is limited and offers a lower quality video. Analog systems are also less secure.
The IP camera system works on a more advanced technology that translates to a high-quality image and video and increased security. The camera converts the video into a digital signal using advanced coding protocols and sends it to the Network Video Recorder using a network cable (Cat5/6). The data is then decoded and recorded on the NVR’s hard drive. Each camera on the system is protected from hacking and holds a locking mechanism in case of an unauthorized hacking attempt.
Both systems are accessible from remote locations through the web or a smartphone’s App (both iPhone and Android) as long as the DVR/NVR is connected to the internet, though some devices support HD live streaming and some don’t.
Besides the cost and the quality, there are a few other factors to consider when inquiring about a CCTV system, for example:
Size of Hard Drive or how long do we want the DVR to record?
Scalability, or would we add more cameras in the future?
Centralization of different locations through one software
Installation field limits
And many more
Most CCTV systems consist of cameras and recording devices. This setup is known as On-Site storage or On-Site recording. The advantages of this setup are maximal recording quality and fast full control over system functions. From a security perspective, the downside of this setup is that if the device is stolen, all the video is lost. For most of our clients, this setup is enough.
In the past few years, Cloud technology has come a long way and few companies today offer streaming devices that would record the video of the IP cameras directly in the cloud. Even though this service does not come cheap (starting at 15$ per cam/month for 1 month of recording storage), it has the obvious advantage of protecting your video recordings from theft. The recordings are accessible from anywhere and anytime through the internet and are of good quality (though not maximal).

The primary differences between analog and IP camera systems lie in their video quality, security, and technology used. Analog systems use older technology, relying on coaxial cables to transfer images from the camera to the Digital Video Recorder (DVR), which translates the analog signal into a digital one for recording. While they can achieve decent resolutions, their video quality is lower and less secure than IP systems. IP systems, on the other hand, use advanced technology that results in higher video quality and increased security. These systems convert video into a digital signal using advanced coding protocols and send it to the Network Video Recorder (NVR) using a network cable (Cat5/6). Each IP camera has built-in protection against hacking and unauthorized access.
When selecting a CCTV system, consider factors such as the hard drive size (how long you want the DVR to record), scalability (the ability to add more cameras in the future), centralization of different locations through one software, installation field limits, and the type of camera best suited for your surveillance needs. It is essential to evaluate your requirements and prioritize your needs to make an informed decision.
On-site storage, also known as on-site recording, involves using cameras and recording devices at your location. This setup provides maximum recording quality and fast control over system functions. However, if the recording device is stolen, the video is lost. Cloud storage involves recording the video of IP cameras directly in the cloud. While this service can be more expensive, it protects your video recordings from theft and allows you to access them from anywhere, anytime through the internet with good quality (though not maximal).
Various camera types are available for residential use, including dome cameras (mostly for ceiling installation and abuse-prone areas), bullet cameras (typically for sidewall installation), fish-eye cameras (providing wide-angle views), varifocal lens cameras (allowing users to zoom in on small details), and PTZ cameras (permitting pan-tilt-zoom control). These cameras offer features such as IR night vision, vandal resistance, weatherproofing, motion detection, and tampering alarms.
