Security cameras in its many shapes and forms have evolved into more of a necessity rather than a luxury usually available to those firms who could afford it. Developments in CCD technology and miniaturization of electronics components have allowed the price to fall steady making them widely available and easy to deploy. Similar to webcams, IP based security systems like the one from LPM, are now more and more becoming well accepted for like VoIP, it allows the video feed from a site hundreds of miles away to be sent over the internet to a security center in the company’s security center allowing centralized monitoring of warehouses and other facilities that would otherwise need security personnel saving in manpower costs.
The technology has evolved to a point that all one needs for IP-based security surveillance monitoring is a peripheral card one installs into the standard PC and the necessary cameras that are desired. Another deterrent of security systems of past was the requirement for extensive cabling which can be quite costly if one wishes to monitor a large area which needs to have all supporting cabling installed (power, video feed cables, audio cables, etc.). The advent of the many wireless radio communication technologies have also contributed to ease of implementation allowing wireless communication between a site’s central console and it’s subordinate cameras, who then send the information through the internet to it’s security base which can be a few blocs to hundreds of miles away.
