IP Verses Analog Camera systems

Camera Systems in Salt Lake City

2.1MP Cameras have 3 times the resolution of a 700TVL analog camera and now with the new 4K cameras out (about 12 Mega Pixels) it’s much more definition as long as you have a 4K Monitor. A 700TVL camera is about 700,000 whereas the 2.1MP is 2.1 Million

Typical wire for an analog camera system was RG59 Coax with the 18g2c power wire and now the IP cameras run on CAT5 or CAT6 cable

Tell your camera contractor how many days of storage you need so you can pick the proper amount of storage, typically we recommend 1TB for every camera to get around 30 days of storage

Instead of a DVR Digital Video Recorder the IP cameras have NVRs which are Network Video Recorders. Typically you can install a camera no more than 328 feet from the recorder although with special equipment we can install cameras further than that.

Peak Alarm has experts in cameras as well as fire alarm, access control and security. Call Larry for a free site visit and pricing

When you buy systems from a big box store the quality is not the same. When you hold a $30 dollar camera in your hand and hold a $300 dollar camera in the other hand the difference is marked.

Viewing cameras from your smart phone

What you should understand before buying and installing a camera system in your home or business

1. Buy two systems if you buy a kit from a big box store so you have replacements.
2. If you are buying a $30 camera understand that you get what you pay for. Spend a bit more for a decent system.
3. Have a Professional do the installation so the cable and equipment is installed properly.
4. Peak Alarm can install 4 cameras for as low as $1,800 with 1TB NVR and 4 of the 1.3MP coax cameras (MPX)
5. Peak Alarm can install 4 IP cameras for as low as $2,300 with 2TB NVR and 4 of the 2.1MP IP cameras
6. The four camera system I would recommend have motorized zoom cameras w/4 3MP cameras and a 6TB NVR for $4,321.00
7. Go with verifocal lenses rather than fixed lenses, the motorized allow you to adjust from a narrow to wide angle view.
8. We can do a lease with an extended warranty or you can buy the equipment out right.
9. All the above systems allow you to view the cameras from your smart phone but your upload speed should be at least 2.5mbps
10. Recently a customer told me he had put in 2 of the bigbox systems and now he wanted a real system. They work but the quality is different.
11. When you compare a $30 dollar camera to a $420 dollar camera there is a massive difference. Often the IRs will go out early on the least expensive units.
