Video surveillance has become increasingly more important over the years, and while the migration from ‘Analog’ to ‘Digital’ has been on the rise, many businesses are still hesitant to take the plunge and put forward the funds to invest in their own security
If you carry similar sentiments, here are five reasons we think you need to look at making the switch today:
1. Analog Extinction
Low quality cameras and associated analogue systems are rapidly approaching their end of life. This is largely the result of technological advancements and the introduction of new products. The higher definition cameras available today are easier to install, upgrade and maintain than many older systems from five or more years ago. You’ll be hard pressed to find a specialist willing to do analogue upgrades or repairs at a reasonable price these days.
2. Cost Effective
A DVR or analogue system is cheaper upfront, but an NVR provides much more value over time. Not only does an NVR system have the ability to manage an entire companies video surveillance needs, it can also be accessed from remote locations. With the added benefit of cheaper, higher quality HD IP cameras available on the market, an NVR provides significantly improved capabilities compared to its outdated DVR brother.
IP surveillance cameras can be added to outdated DVR systems at a much cheaper price. This allow businesses to migrate to the new HD standards gradually rather than staying with outdated security solutions.
With new storage capabilities like RAID data management and perpetually increasing hard drive space, you can store hundreds of hours of footage without any concern of losing data due to overwriting, corruption or damage to a single disk.
Due to rising global security concerns and tighter government regulations, many industries now state compulsory levels of surveillance for businesses to keep their operating license. Some of our customer’s know all too well the trials and tribulations of jumping through legal hoops. With our new IP surveillance system, they no longer need to worry about data loss or upgrade costs which provides piece of mind to continue their real operations.
