IP CCTV Systems

We all want to keep our property protected, whether it's your home or your business there are precautions that you should take to not only deter crime but to prepare if it does happen. CCTV camera have been a vital piece of equipment in any security surveillance system and the technology behind them continues to improve.

The time of grainy, unidentifiable images is becoming a thing of the past, because after all, what is the use of catching a crime on camera if the footage is useless? That's where IP CCTV cameras come into play.

What is an IP CCTV camera? 

IP CCTV cameras are some of the best security cameras on the market. Internet protocol (IP) cameras send and receive data using computer networks and the internet, meaning that it is far easier to review and access the footage they capture. IP CCTV also collects footage of a much higher resolution than ever before, over a much wider frame. This means that IP CCTV not only collects footage of a much better quality but a larger picture than before, meaning you actually need less CCTV cameras whilst maintaining or increasing surveillance.

IP CCTV camera systems are advanced in a number of ways, which shows how advanced our security systems are getting. They are an intelligent surveillance system, recognising a range of different information:

  • People Counting
  • Queue Analysis
  • Gender Recognition
  • Kinetic Mapping
  • Queue Analysis
  • Dwell Analysis

This technology not only gives you a much clearer overlook over what is happening on your property but makes it incredibly easy to access this information. You don't need to spend hours scrolling through footage, the footage can tell you when something worth seeing has occurred. 

Where can I get a IP CCTV camera system?

stable

Stables are usually one of the most targetted areas when it comes to rural crime. This is because stables may not only contain valuable horses, they can also contain expensive equipment. Only a couple of months ago, a stable was raided by thieves who stole £10k worth of horse riding gear in Scotland. Unfortunately, the victims did not have CCTV so they were unable to identify those who stole their property. 

Understandably, many horse owners would like to keep horses safe and their equipment in the stable so it is easily accessible. If this is something that would make your life easier, we believe CCTV for stables could improve this situation for you. 

Why You Should Have CCTV For Stables 

As of August 2017, there seems to be a sharp rise in rural crime as thieves have become more "brazen". With an increase in reports of suspicious people watching farms and a long wait time for the police, it is important to ensure you have the right security in place to protect your farm. 

Livestock is one of the most targeted subjects of robbery, so stables are sure to entice any would-be criminals. Always make sure your horses are microchipped and easily trackable for this very reason. However, the equipment that can be stored along with livestock in stables is not so easily tracked. 

If you have CCTV for stables, this can help you identify the burglars and retrieve your missing items. Here are a few more reasons to consider farm CCTV:

  • The look of CCTV will help deter any criminals 
  • You will be able to identify the criminals 
  • Livestock CCTV will keep an eye on your animals
  • It will provide a record of what was taken 
  • Recordings will help police investigation
