Security cameras can be separated into several categories but there are two main types of technology used for the transmission and capture of a security camera video signal. Analog is considered a long time traditional format for security cameras. An analog security camera broadcasting at full resolution and 30 frames per second consumes less than 2MBits per second on a network. Today’s recorders take advantage of low cost hard drives by taking the video from an analog security camera and converting it into a digital format for long term storage inside of the recorder. Analog CCTV cameras are typically cheaper than digital cameras.
The type of cable required to connect analog cameras is coaxial siamese cable or RG59. The connectors needed for connecting the camera to the DVR is a BNC connector. Some of the benefits of using analog cameras is cost and ease of use. IP cameras, unlike analog cameras, transmit video signals over a network. A user can install a microphone or even speakers at the camera which can then playback pre-recorded audio clips or even receive audio from near the camera.
Smart cameras are able to store video directly to an SD card and trigger events based on external sensory input. Using an IP camera can reduce the cost of installation by taking advantage of PoE. Power over ethernet lets users both transmit video and power the camera on a single network cable. IP cameras typically come with a higher intial cost but more than make up for it by combining high resolution video, audio, data, and power on one device.
