Should I buy a standard or digital IP security camera system?

The 2 main rules for security cameras are placement and function. IP cameras are great, if you purchase higher end models you can cover more area and see more detail from a distance, meaning, you can cover more area with less cameras. The downside to IP cameras is the cost per camera and network bottleneck. A good IP camera can range from $150 to $400 while a higher end IP camera can range from $500 to $1,200. IP cameras are also Internet data hogs. If you have a regular DSL or cable Internet setup at your location be prepared to suffer a very slow Internet  connection. Some clients order separate or expensive T1 or T2 Internet service to compensate for the drop in Internet speed.

Analog or standard security cameras can actually give you the same detail as IP cameras as long as you follow the rule of placement. If your trying to cover a door or entryway, even with a low resolution camera you will get very good picture as long as the camera is placed within 15 feet from what you’re covering. If you need to cover up to 40 feet, make sure you use a higher resolution security camera. I recommend 700 tvl. You will still pick up facial features, tattoos and other small details. A good standard resolution camera can run from $35 to $65 while high resolution models range from $75 to $150.

For areas that are further than 40 feet you will need a camera with an adjustable lens or a fixed long view lens. You can see up to a quarter mile depending on which lens you use but you will have a more narrow view. You can even use a PTZ camera that you can pan around and zoom in to a particular area. Make sure you place the cameras with the proper lens to pick up certain details like license plates and a driver faces when cars are pulling into a lot.

When you’re viewing your cameras from a security DVR and need a high definition view on your large flat screen monitor, buy a DVR that uses an HDMI output. If not, you will get a grainy and pixelated picture that does not represent what the camera actually see.

The 2nd rule of security cameras you should follow is function. Unlike IP security cameras, standard and high resolution analog cameras do not take a lot of network space. So you can use your regular Internet setup at home or at work and view your security cameras from any mobile phone, tablet or computer in real time (up to 15 devices at a time) without noticing any lag from your Internet connection. If you place your standard analog cameras close enough or use higher resolution analog cameras you can capture all the detail you need with real-time playback.

If you have any questions or would like  an estimate for camera placement call 312-970-1579. Also, remember to ask about our low cost Home Automation with wireless light sensors and mobile phone control.
