Security Camera Technology

IP (Internet) security cameras provide superior technology to older analog CCTV cameras that use coaxial cable. IP video cameras provide a higher resolution and a wider and deeper viewing field compared to CCTV cameras. The advanced digital technology of IP cameras enables excellent vision at high and low light levels during both daytime and nighttime.

Security cameras for commercial use are specially designed for high quality video that can watch and track people, vehicles, and their movement that may be far away and important details that may be small in size. Commercial cameras feature megapixel video resolution with superior lenses and imaging sensors. In addition to cameras, an effective video surveillance system typically includes a network video recorder (NVR) for video storage, lighting for superior night video, Internet access, network cable, wireless equipment, and affiliated system design, equipment, software, installation, setup, and training.

Security Camera Compatibility

UCIT’s live video surveillance service can watch most Avigilon ONVIF-compatible IP security cameras, as well as many IP and analog cameras from other manufacturers.

Avigilon products include H4 bullet security cameras and H4 HD dome surveillance cameras.

Low Cost Solution

Live video surveillance is a part of a low-cost Avigilon camera solution. Proactive video monitoring can generate significant savings by helping to reduce break-ins, damage, and theft. More importantly live monitoring can actually increase revenues and property value. Avigilon cameras with live speakers can deter unwanted visitors from trespassers to criminals. Customers tell us they’ve been able to both increase occupancy and raise rents.

If you have security guards doing live video monitoring or otherwise on-site, you know how expensive they can be. Pay typically starts at $20 per hour. Plus there can be costs for uniforms, benefits, golf carts, guard shacks, office space, and much more. UCIT

live surveillance can provide live surveillance at a cost of up to 80% off the price of a security guard.
