5 Reasons why Analogue CCTV Remains Relevant in an IP world

Mobiles, apps, digital this and digital that - We live in a world where technology moves fast, and constantly upgrading our devices is part of our routine. With IP CCTV offering amazing resolution and cool features such as facial recognition, video analytics capabilities and more, it's easy to miss how good analogue CCTV systems are.

5 Good Reasons why Analogue CCTV Remains Relevant in an IP World

1. You can get HD picture quality with analogue cameras over coax cable thanks to how quickly technology moves forward. Currently, analogue cameras can output up to 4MP HD resolutions over coaxial cables, and soon enough, this will double to 8MP/4K. So, if your current security camera set up is lacking in picture quality, the next reason should follow nicely.

2. Upgrading is a piece of cake. While analogue cameras and recorders have changed a lot in the last 20 years, the installation remains the same. This is known as "legacy installation" in the industry, and it means you can easily upgrade your system simply by replacing the recorder and cameras without worrying about re-cabling.

3. Plug 'n' Play You can easily connect an analogue system yourself. Just watch the video below where a member of our team shows you how to do it.



4. HD resolution has never been this cheap. A 2MP HD resolution analogue camera is around 30% cheaper than a 2MP IP camera. This is a considerable saving if you need multiple cameras to monitor important key areas around your property. Just remember to match the number of cameras you'll need to how many channels the recorder supports.

5. Two words: Remote Viewing. Are you going on holiday? You'll be pleased to know that you can view your cameras remotely with an analogue CCTV system. Connect your recorder straight into your Internet router, download the manufacturer's app, and follow the instructions. Watch the video below to see how easily you can connect a CCTV system to your mobile device. Next time you're away on holiday, you can relax knowing you're a tap away from viewing your home and pets.
