It’s the buzz word currently in the CCTV industry. Everyone is talking about it but why?
It’s getting cheaper.
Yes the main thing is it is becoming affordable now and can certainly be considered for most applications involving integrated security.
Again a new buzz word. This is because most systems installed within the next 2-5 years will effectively be a mixture of analogue and IP cameras the reason behind this is because most customers out there will want to upgrade to IP but still have to include their legacy equipment wherever practical to give them a cost effective security solution.
What is better IP or analogue?
That actually does not matter . The move is slowly but surely moving to IP camera solutions because everything else out their is using IP and needs Internet connectivity to function in today’s market place.
So we wont stop the march towards IP cameras and integrated CCTV systems very soon all security including access control and intruder alarms will cease to function using the old traditional ways. The future is here today!
