Types of CCTV Systems

1) IP CCTV Systems

IP CCTV works like computers on a network and uses the same technology Cat5 (the same cable as computer network cable), but doesn’t require the internet.

For simple domestic situations, it’s as simple as plugging the camera into the recorder but anything more advanced, basic networking knowledge is required.

IP CCTV systems will cost about 30% more than their "analogue" counterparts. If cost is your main concern, then don’t go for IP unless you require advanced analytics such as face recognition, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) or Fire detection.

2) Analogue CCTV Systems

Analogue works over coaxial cable, the same as your satellite.

With analogue, simply plug the cameras into the recorder and that’s it. The only issues you may encounter are due to poor cable connection, but using professionally made cable will fix this.

Analogue system is suited to those who are on a tight budget (A 5MP IP camera will cost you twice as much as its analogue equivalent) or those who are look to upgrade their current system, with 80% of properties already have the old system with coaxial.


3) Analogue PoC CCTV Systems

Power Over coaxial (PoC) provides power and data in one cable, meaning there is no need for a power supply unless you want audio. You will need to buy PoC compatible cameras to use this feature. Beyond that PoC systems preform the same as analogue systems.

4) Wireless CCTV System

Wireless CCTV system are best suited to situation were a regular system can’t be installed. They often come with more disadvantages than advantages, such as image reliably issue and still require a power supply.
