The best video surveillance system

must be stable, reliable and user friendly

Traditional video surveillance systems require expensive infrastructures with capabilities to process and store video recordings. New video surveillance systems based on P2P collects multimedia streams generated by surveillance cameras, optimizes their transmissions with scalable video coding (SVC) according to network condition and stores them in a cloud storage system in an efficient and secure way.

IP video surveillance
Traditional analog video has been around since the 1920s and that same basic technology is used by most CCTV video surveillance systems today. Just as CDs and DVDs have replaced audiocassettes and VHS tapes, IP-based networking and video storage systems are replacing analog solutions. There are still numerous areas where analog systems perform well and can meet the stated requirements of proper video surveillance.

AI Security
AI is becoming more and more universal. AI data is initially analyzed by a computer and then sent to the server to be analyzed. This improves speed and efficiency of analyzing the data and the need to store large amounts of data is reduced. This will also help improve the costs of having AI security.

With more technology means more data storage. Much of this will be stored in the cloud. It's important for companies to be able to access their data and easily store data that they accumulate. By using cloud processing, analytics can provide insights that will be useful for businesses in order to measure performance and efficiency.

What types of business could benefit from video surveillance systems?

Any business that is looking to protect its assets and prevent theft or fraud can benefit from implementing a video surveillance system. Often, the mere presence of cameras can be enough to deter thieves or vandals.

How to Choose a Video Surveillance System?

Ask yourself these questions:

How many cameras will I need?
How do I want my video footage stored?
How long do I want to store video footage?
How do I want to manage my surveillance system?
Do my cameras need to be weatherproof, vandalproof and able to pan, tilt or zoom?
Do I want to integrate my video surveillance system with other systems?
Will I ever need to scale my system?

Once you have a general understanding of the specific features you need in a system, you'll then want to determine what type of cameras you want and how you will place them.

Next, decide which type of storage you would prefer. A popular new form of storage is in the cloud, though many services provide it as a hybrid along with an NVR.

The last consideration is your preferred mode of managing the system. The most common method is by mobile app. The app allows you to control your cameras, review and share footage, and manage your storage.

Video surveillance systems typically range anywhere from $100 to $10,000 depending on the type, quality and number of cameras you require, as well as the amount and type of storage you use.
