Quality, Tech, And Price Drive Security Camera Technology
Security technology has kept pace with the technological changes in data storage systems and change in the device preferentially used by the majority of clients and has improved the quality of the camera. The changes in security technology are all driven by customer demand and provide the ability of companies of any size to protect their site with a combination of the latest technology and older technology that depends on the security needed in a specific location of a physical setting.
The majority of clients have moved with the times into a preference for mobile technology that provides all of the high resolution capacity that smart phone technology produces. This means that the system, cameras, storage capacity, and data retrieval speeds have to increase for any manufacturer of security systems for that manufacturer to remain competitive.
Data storage in the cloud has become a price competitive competition for storage in physical devices. A price choice and the storage choice for any operation depend on the size of the company and the area of physical ground that a security system has to cover. Smaller companies actually benefit more than larger companies in cloud storage. Larger companies can absorb the cost of servers for storage in existing physical equipment. Any government entity is required by law to use physical storage.
Speed of data retrieval and higher capacity storage has evolved in response to the higher resolution of cameras. The new high resolution camera systems produce so much data that systems have to increase in capacity to handle the data. Cloud storage makes the efficiency of data storage and retrievals higher and allows faster change from digital to non-digital formats. Data compression has improved to the extent that older systems cannot manage the amount of data efficiently.
High definition video surveillance video is still transferred through coaxial cables allowing the security company to save money by not having to change from analog infrastructure and still get the benefit of increased video quality.
The higher image quality provided by the latest incarnations of video cameras allows even the smallest security company or business to reduce costs for investigating a potential problem. The quality of the video is so good that the monitor can determine if there is an actual problem without sending a person to investigate. The enhancement saves money and the potential for employee endangerment.
Prices for all systems and system components have decreased. This price change may be bad for suppliers but it makes the perfect opportunity for even the smallest organization to upgrade to the latest technology and still get a fast return on investment.
Improvements in technology allow monitoring to be site specific. A security organization or a company can use higher tech equipment to monitor areas that have a historically higher incidence of problems better while using less expensive equipment to monitor low problem areas. The end result is higher efficiency, better customer satisfaction, and a lower cost of investment in the newest security monitoring technology
