Analogue Cameras vs IP Cameras

If you’re thinking about installing a new video surveillance system, then you have to decide between an IP or analogue video format. This Article will make your decision easier.


Analogue Cameras:

 

PROs:

- Cheaper cameras - cost effective solution
- Uses less hard-drive space which results in many months of footage
- Can be connected to existing camera systems and all brands work with each other
- Analogue systems are very stable and need no maintenance
- Analogue cameras don't depend on your network and will still work when the network is down
- Approved technology that works better with motion and difficult light situations
- Big variety of models such as big outdoor bullets or small hidden cameras and many more
- Analogue system can also be viewed over the internet and mobile phones
 
CONs:

- IP cameras have a much higher resolution then analogue cameras
- Usually more cable is used - But this does provide better stability


IP Cameras:

 

PROs:

- Very high resolution - so you can zoom in without quality loss
- The existing home/company network can be used, which saves long cables
- Good wireless functions through WiFi network without interference
- Thanks to higher resolutions, faces and number plates can easily be identified
- Very far distances can easily be reached with wireless senders and receivers
- IP cameras can be configured through the network

CONs:

- IP cameras are in general higher-priced
- High resolutions require allot of bandwidth which can sometimes slow down your network speed
- Usually one camera brand can't work with another + NVR licenses are required
- High resolution internet viewing is slow with Namibia's standard internet connections.
- High technical skills are required in order to configure and maintain IP camera systems
- More hard-drive space is required
- IP cameras can't work when your network stops working
