What is IP surveillance? IP surveillance is a digitized and networked version of closed-circuit television (CCTV). In an IP surveillance system, an IP camera records video footage and the resulting content is distributed over an IP (Internet protocol) network. Digitization offers a number of benefits over traditional analogue CCTV, including: Improved search capability. Greater ease of use. Better quality images and no degradation of content over time. The ability to record and play simultaneously. The ability to compress content for improved storage. Adding networking capability to security ip cameras provides additional benefits, including: Improved ability for remote viewing and control. Anyone on the network can potentially see video from any camera connected to the network. IP Storage makes it possible to store data in any geographic location. Greater ease of distribution. An image of a crime suspect, for example, can be immediately distributed to officials. The ability to connect to email and other communications systems so that alerts can be sent automatically. There is a growing industry trend towards replacing analogue CCTV with IP surveillance systems. Not just because of the benefits above, but also because the gap in price between IP surveillance and traditional CCTV has reduced considerably. Why do I need Security IP Cameras?

Home Security Survey It can take very little time for a thief to gain entry into your home. The trauma of your home being ransacked and your possessions being stolen or damaged is devastating. Insurance can ease the financial burden but not the mental anxiety which follows. It is for this reason that you should do all you can to prevent a burglary in the first place. The use of good quality locks, together with simple common sense measures will deter the majority of thieves. Most thieves are opportunists looking for an open window or poorly secured door usually during the day when occupants are at work or away. Taking simple yet effective steps to improve your security will discourage thieves from choosing YOUR home as their target. Most, if not all, insurance companies have a minimum level of security they expect policy holders to maintain if their insurance is to be valid. Below is a guide to help you check that your home security meets those requirements.
