Have a Question?
What is the difference between analog and IP cameras?
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras are traditional analog system cameras that use a DVR to record video. They were reliable, relatively inexpensive, and easy to install. However, they don’t offer you the same versatility, high resolution, and higher security than IP cameras do.
How long can a record be saved in the system?
Several factors come into play: how many cameras are in the system, at what framerate (FPS) is the video being recorded, what size hard drive does the DVR/NVR have. Our pre-configured systems usually provide several weeks of the archive when set to motion detect mode.
What Components Will I Need for This System?
For an IP surveillance system, you’ll need the actual IP cameras, an NVR or other type of storage system, additional parts will not be required. At VIRA CCTV, we can help determine your needs and set you up with the best equipment for your budget.
Can several users view the same site at once?
Most Internet-enabled Security DVR/NVR systems allow multiple users to view the same site simultaneously. However, as more people look at the same cameras/DVR/NVR at the same time, the bandwidth will be shared between them. This reduces the image quality.
Can I use my existing cameras?
Yes. You can use your existing CCTV cameras. We offer a hybrid NVR which gives you the ability to use both Analog and Digital Cameras.
Can I view live and recorded video remotely?
Yes. All of our Security DVR/NVR systems are Internet-enabled. That means you can view life and recorded video from anywhere via an Internet connection.
