Networked IP CCTV Camera Systems

Belfast Security Systems provide a maintenance service for your CCTV System. When it comes to the security of your property.

Whether you need one IP camera or a completely integrated security system, we provide excellent pricing and support. This includes everything from the camera lens to the network switch and computer systems for recording the video. We provide technical advice and consulting that assures that you purchase exactly the right IP camera system you need.

What do you need?  Remember that the IP camera system consists of many items that need to work together.  It’s important to make sure that everything is compatible.  IP camera systems include not only the cameras, they also include the video recording system, camera lenses, enclosures, network switches and PoE injectors, surge protectors, and analytic software.  They may also integrate with IP door access control and IP Intercoms.

What is an IP camera?

An IP camera system consists of a number of network attached cameras, which are generally called IP cameras.  The system also includes some type of video recording system, and a number of viewing workstations.  The video recording system can be either a computer running video management software (VMS, or a Network Video Recorder (NVR)).  A Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is a previous generation of the NVR.

What is a Network Video Recorder(NVR)?

The Network Video Recorder (NVR) is a complete IP Camera recording device. It is similar to the Video Server system, but instead of using a standard computer (eg Windows/Linux), the recorder uses an in-built computer with an operating system and application software that is dedicated to recording the video. It also allows many people to view real time and recorded video. The term evolved from the older DVR (or Digital Video Recorder). The NVR includes both the computer and special Video Management Software (VMS). The computer usually uses Linux, but there are some that use Windows as well.

What is a Digital Video Recorder(DVR)?

The DVR is a device that records video from analog cameras to one or more hard drives. The term DVR is also used by the consumer TV market. The DVR used in the security market has a fixed number of BNC connections to attach cameras. DVRs are available with 4, 8 16, 32 and 64 channels (or connections). This means that you have a maximum number of cameras that can be supported by one unit. Once you exceed the number of connections available on the DVR, you will need to add another DVR to your system. Some DVRs connect to the network and can be viewed using a Windows computer

What are the differences between a Network Video Recorder(NVR) and a Digital Video Recorder(DVR)?

Here are too many differences between these devices to list them all here. Below are just a few of the major ones:

  • The NVR generally provides more flexibility in functionality
  • The NVR connects to the computer network and so does all the IP cameras. This allows you to take advantage of the existing network infrastructure instead of running wires from a “home base” location to all the cameras.
  • The DVR uses coax connections to each of the analog cameras
  • The NVR supports high resolution megapixel cameras
  • The DVR supports only cameras with VGA resolution (generally)
  • The NVR uses a much more modern technology (although some DVRs are quite good as well, and generally less expensive)
