Making the Case for IP Surveillance as the Smarter - And Less Costly - Choice
Whether it's for home surveillance or monitoring a business, deciding between an IP and analog Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) system is rarely a black-and-white choice. But IP surveillance has overcome many cost obstacles and, because of its digital nature, lends itself to more applications and new features. Recent independent research has clearly shown that today's total cost of ownership for IP is on par, or even lower, than that of analog systems. This paper will speak to the total cost of ownership of IP versus analog surveillance solutions. It will also discuss some important advantages of migrating to IP surveillance systems and point out several benefits that IP technology achieves.
