Megapixel IP Cameras vs. Analog Cameras
For years, the standard in surveillance cameras continued to be analog cameras. Oftentimes grainy, poor quality images from these cameras made it difficult to identify a license plate number or a suspect. However in recent years, the new IP Megapixel surveillance cameras have been introduced to the market, boasting better image quality and many other key features that make these cameras the best choice in surveillance.
As far as image quality, IP Cameras have a resolution that is 6 to 20 times higher than that of an analog camera. This, coupled with progressive scan CMOS sensors, can offer clearer shots of people and vehicles then ever before. Recent advancements in technology have made the IP megapixel cameras more afford-able then in past years. Although megapixel IP cameras cost more then analog, the addi-tional investment is worth it to achieve the images that you would desire.
IP Cameras are powered by only one small Cat5e cable, which can also save time and money on installation.
Additionally, IP cameras can be viewed on any PC, Tablet/iPad or iPhone/Android Smartphone. They can also be programmed to do many different things for your security; i.e. send a text message whenever motion is detected.
Storage is also revolu-tionized, allowing you to store video onto a microSD card within the camera itself. This serves as a back-up in case the NVR is ever broken or stolen.
