An Overview

The need for video monitoring systems in Tampa goes far beyond a simple security system. These days,

video surveillance is high on demands which provide people piece of mind by allowing the system to

monitor homes, offices premises, buildings, shops, markets, etc. The system keeps an eye on kids at

home and monitors the inventory in the small business. People can imagine for the reassurance to be

able remotely to access the real-time or archived footage of the residence, workplace, shops or

business. However, with all of these capabilities that comes to function, it becomes necessary to know

business, offices, shopping complexes may need a more complex solution, so they require wired camera

setups. Moreover, if there is a requirement of monitoring small spaces, then wireless cameras will be

the perfect setup.

Kind of DVR

A monitoring system may come with a few cameras, and if there is a requirement of adding more

cameras for maximum coverage, then it can be done easily. The restrictive factor is the DVR, or

recording device, included with the system. It has a maximum number of channels that can accept video

feeds, so the number of the channel determines the maximum number of cameras one can use with the


Analog or IP Digital Cameras

The analog security cameras function as sending the images via an analog signal to the DVR. The DVR

transmit it all over the internet as one IP (Internet Protocol) address. This is how it becomes efficient in

the use of bandwidth, which typically costs less per camera. IP digital cameras monitors broadcast every

camera stream separately with own IP address. IP digital cameras are hence accomplished of higher

resolution than analog cameras. So, if image clarity and motion capture is the top choice, then an analog

system may not be the ideal choice for video monitoring in Tampa.

Support Remote Access

Do people want to use a smartphone, laptop, or a computer to monitor the video footage? How about

getting text alerts wherever you go? If yes, then choose a monitoring system that has remote access
