When installing a security monitoring system, some common questions are normal to arise. That’s why doing an analysis and research on the products on the market is important to base the choices for the system you need.
So we’ll talk a little bit about the two most used types of cameras, and the possibilities with both products. These cameras, unlike common digital cameras, which can be semi-professional or even professional, are specific to CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) monitoring systems.
This means that they are surveillance cameras, fixed in strategic locations, as analyzed by the team of security professionals. They are specific to capture images even at night and detect movement. The two main types of cameras used these days are analog and IP cameras.
And of course it is normal to ask: what is the best option among them? In addition to the type, there are different models and possibilities for image quality, network benefits, among other advantages. Even security professionals have doubts at this time, as today there are different possibilities and it is necessary to analyze the customer’s needs and how the space to receive the installation is.
The choice of camera type also determines the type of system to be used, such as the type of technology, network cables, accessories and equipment to be used. In other words, if a system has analog cameras, the types of cables and equipment are quite different from a system that uses IP cameras.
First of all it is important to know a little about each camera! The first of them is analog, the most popular in Brazil in the security sector, and they also work in an analog system, with images being transmitted through coaxial cables and AV inputs.
In an analog security system, the monitoring center is required, so it is possible to connect the camera to a monitor. However, in the case of recording the captured images, it is necessary to connect a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) device.
On the other hand, IP (Internet Protocol) cameras are equipment that work in a network system, such as LAN, Intranet or Internet. Therefore, they are digitally connected products in a much simpler way than analog cameras.
The IP camera can be compared to a mini computer, as it can receive and send data over the network, following the worldwide trend of Internet of Things (IoT) technology. With IP technology you’ll be able to manage the images on an NVR device, computer or even in the cloud.
This is where the possibility of having more effective remote security also comes in, as it is possible to access images from anywhere in the world, through a properly protected user.
Some considerations must be made before choosing the best system for your condominium, business or industrial yard. We have separated some points that are important for any customer.
As mentioned above, the possibility of accessing the camera system from a distance, that is, remotely, is one of the main demands currently. Both analog and IP cameras can be accessed remotely, but in different ways.
IP cameras are already adapted for this use, while analog cameras need to be connected to a DVR that will convert the analog signal into a digital signal, so that only then the transmission of images via the internet is possible. Simply put, installation with IP cameras is simpler and suitable for remote access.
Although IP cameras are easier when installing a monitoring system that has remote access, they are much more expensive equipment than analog cameras. There are projects in which IP cameras are not affordable for the pocket and also do not meet the customer’s needs.
Today, even spaces that have analog systems avoid making the complete transition to IP technology, due to the high cost. And in some cases, such as small spaces, an analog system can fulfill the need for security very well.
In addition to remote access and the cost to assess, image resolution quality is also an important point, however, there are different options on the market, so we’ll talk in more depth about this.
Among the most common resolutions are HD, Full HD, 4MP and 4K, also known as ultra HD. Depending on the system, the customer’s budget and the space that will receive all installations, each analog or IP camera can have these resolution characteristics. Now, let’s know a little about each one.
The HD resolution has 720p capture, which means that on these devices we have an image that is 1280 pixels wide by 720 pixels high. Thus, HD images provide 1 megapixel (1MP) of resolution.
HD cameras can either be part of the analog system (with digital recording) or IP (via network cables or WiFi). It is a common resolution to be applied in residential environments, both indoors and outdoors, where it is not necessary to use a lot of zoom or cover large spaces.
An evolution of HD, Full HD surveillance cameras transmit 1920 x 1080 pixel images. As HD has 720p resolution, Full HD has 1080p (or 2MP). It is also a technology that can be used in analog or IP cameras, covering wider areas and with a much higher level of detail when capturing images.
The so-called 4 mega cameras have 2688 x 1520 pixels. They already offer much greater coverage and detail for the images, being a solution more focused on large companies, malls, supermarkets, among others.
4MP resolution is already a line of evolution in capture technology, with another leap in quality, 4MP image resolution. They can be used in systems with analogue or IP signals.
It is currently the most current and innovative technology on the market. The 4K or Ultra HD technology is that it has more image resolution, presenting higher pixel density (8MP) and leaving the image in very high quality.
4K cameras have four times more resolution than Full HD cameras. It is a specific type of resolution for very large spaces such as industrial yards, university campuses, public roads, etc., as well as spaces that are at great risk of burglary and burglary, such as banks, financial institutions, etc.
In these environments, if an image of a suspicious person is captured from a distance, for example, with 4K cameras it can be recognized by details of the skin, tattoos, hair and clothing, small subtleties that are difficult to notice at lower resolutions.
