Many security problems for business and government installations start to occur when no one is watching. A camera system from COMMQWEST assures 24/7/365 monitoring of the places you value, even when you’re not looking.
COMMQWEST is a leading provider of Analog and IP Camera Systems. Currently, the majority of camera systems installed in the United States remain analog, with digital video recorders (DVRs) storing video from cameras and providing video playback. CCTV technology has been available for years and is very reliable. However, many new video surveillance installations are incorporating IP because of its inherent advantages, such as:
- Being able to view the video from any location in the world via a computer network.
- Newer megapixel cameras are not compatible with analog systems
- Scalability, depending on the equipment and system installed, there is no limit to the number of devices that can be placed on the network.
- While IP cameras are more expensive to purchase than analog cameras, the operation and installation costs can be lower, especially for larger applications. Often a larger campus environment will already have a network that can support IP video, so installation costs are less. The expense of running coaxial cable, which is used in analog systems, is also eliminated.
