The important role being played by
security camera in combating crimes in
modern society cannot be
overemphasized; especially that being
played by IP cameras.
There have much talk about the security
possibilities that can be enjoyed using
these cameras, and it must be said that
such talks are indeed justified.
However, in the rush to enjoy the
benefits, some people often fail to put
certain factors or consideration into
perspective before acquiring an IP-based
security camera, with these failures on
their part coming to haunt them later on.
Here are some IP camera buying
mistakes you will need to guard against.
Failure to consider size of an area
As unlikely as this might sound to some,
there are individuals who fail to consider
the extent of the areas where they intend
installing IP cameras, all in their
eagerness to set up a security system. It
is very essential for the dimensions of
the places where you need to have an IP
camera system installed to be taken first
before doing anything else. The main
reason for this is that cameras do come
with differing levels of lens resolution.
The sizes of areas that can be covered by
lenses are determined by their
resolution; the higher, the better.
Another reason while area measurements
need to be taken is to ensure you do not
end up with an IP camera with a higher
resolution than is needed, as this will
cost you more money than necessary.
Not having a plan handy
There are also some people who set up
an IP camera system that would not be
able to give them sufficient level of
security. This is so because proper
planning was not done when buying the
needed security cameras.
In order not to fall in this group, you may
need to work with an expert, say, an
architect, to determine the appropriate
places where cameras may have to be
It will also enable you to have a clearer
idea of the total units required before
going to purchase the cameras.
Taking software for granted
Perhaps, due to their lack of technical
know-how in that regard, there are some
who pay little or no attention to the
quality of software provided with their IP
cameras. This is a very dangerous thing
to do, as it is capable of rendering such
individuals, their families and property
vulnerable to security breaches.
In spite of the fact that almost all pieces
of software available boast of many key
features, you may still want to do your
own research and make a list of the
characteristics you consider highly
After doing that, you may then proceed
to find the IP camera software with those
When you think you have found the right
one, do not just go ahead and buy
immediately; first check it out through a
free demo, if such is provided, in order to
be really sure.
Paying inadequate attention to
One of the key arguments that have
been advanced against the use of IP
camera is in the area of bandwidth use.
These cameras are believed to consume
a lot of bandwidth because of highly
quality image resolution that they are
known to possess. As a result, it is taken
for granted that all IP cameras take up
much bandwidth, but this is not always
It is actually possible to reduce
bandwidth consumption through the use
of intelligent analysis technology,
according to experts.
The issue is just that not all cameras are
the same; some consume more
bandwidth than others. You may need to
research to find the manufacturers of
cameras that consume less bandwidth.
Being too conscious of cost
While it is not a bad thing to economize
with the resources at your disposal, some
people place too much emphasis on cost
when buying an IP camera. Such people
most, if not all, of the time end up with
surveillance cameras producing poor
quality images and which are less
The ideal thing to do will be to come to
conclusion on what you need, for
example, in terms of resolution, among
other factors, and proceed to buy the
right IP camera not considering the cost
Video surveillance has so many benefits
attached to it when talking about the
security of lives and property in today's
world. And there you have some IP
camera buying mistakes that you will
need to be careful enough not to make
when you are thinking of acquiring some
to meet your security needs.
