IP Camera Systems

We are the experts in network attached CCTV surveillance IP camera systems.

IP Camera System ConceptWhether you need one IP camera or a completely integrated security system, we provide excellent pricing and support. This includes everything from the camera lens to the network switch and computer systems for recording the video.

We provide technical advice and consulting that assures that you purchase exactly the right IP camera system you need.

IP camera systems can include many different types of IP cameras. The right camera depends on where you want to mount the surveillance camera, the details you need to see, the lighting, the distance from the camera and many other factors.

What do you need?  Remember that the IP camera security system consists of many items that need to work together.  It’s important to make sure that everything is compatible.  IP camera systems are also called CCTV surveillance camera systems. Whatever you call it, the system IP camera security systemincludes not only the IP cameras, but they also include the video recording system, camera lenses, enclosures, network switches and PoE injectors, surge protectors, and analytic software.  They may also integrate with IP door access control and IP Intercoms. the IP camera system is one part of the complete security system.

Take a look at the components below, and then contact us for assistance. We will be happy to help assure you get everything you need. Not only do we provide a complete IP camera security solution, but we also include free IP camera consulting services.

Surveillance IP Cameras

The chart compares CCTV cameras from a number of manufacturers such as Axis, IQinvision, Canon, Hikvision, Hanwha (Samsung), Sony and others. We provide a review of the IP Camera performance and compare pricing to assure you get the best camera for your application.

Select the Wireless Camera. The comparison compares the options available for wireless connection of the IP CCTV cameras.  The chart reviews the two ways to provide a wireless connection.  We also provide solar power solutions for wireless cameras that are in remote locations.

Network attached PTZ cameras can be used in a variety of applications. We provided a comparison of the IP PTZ cameras available from Samsung, and Sony, as well as special long-range cameras with IR illumination.

Add the Camera Video Recording System

IP Video Recording SystemIP camera systems include a video recording system. Do you need Video Management Software, an NVR or Cloud Services? The comparison table and Buyers guide for IP video recording systems reviews which recording system is best for you.

IP Video Management Software

The video software (VMS) runs on your computer and controls video display, video recording, retrieval, motion detection, alarms, etc. There are many IP camera recording software products available. The information we provide helps you purchase the right product for your IP camera system.

network video recorderNetwork Video Recorder (NVR) System

The Network Video Recorder System is a complete system that includes the computer, storage, and VMS software. This complete system allows you to view and manage video on the network. It is an alternative to using the VMS software on your own computer.

We provide a choice of open NVR systems or proprietary recording systems from Hikvision, Hanwha (Samsung), and other manufacturers.



IP Camera AccesoriesCamera accessories are part of the complete IP camera system. You can select an alternative lens, wall brackets, IR illuminators, microphones, speakers, or even a network extension system.

Camera Enclosures Environmental enclosures that are made for all types of cameras protect your cameras from the weather. There are also special enclosures for explosion-proof environments.

Lenses for Megapixel IP Cameras

Choose a variable, fixed, megapixel, or standard lens that is compatible with high resolution and Day/night cameras.

Video Encoders or Camera Encoders

IP video encoderDo you have older analog CCTV cameras that you would like to upgrade?   You can use a video encoder to attach the old camera to the network.

You can select a single-channel or multi-channel encoders from Axis, Hanwha (Samsung), Hikvision, Sony, and others.

Add door access control to create a complete security system

Door ControlIP Door Access Control systems can integrate with IP camera systems to increase your safety and security by controlling door access.  Now it’s easier than ever to install a door access control system using your existing Ethernet network. It can be easily integrated with an IP video surveillance security system. Take a look at the latest integration using C2P convergence software.

IP Intercoms for Manual Door Control
Intercoms attach to IP cameras or directly to the network. There are network attached video intercoms that provide a completely integrated solution for manually unlocking the door.

IP cameras and door access control can be integrated in a number of different ways. Take a look at the article How to Integrate Door Access and IP Camera Systems. The article reviews all the ways to integrate these systems.


Integrate with Other Security System

IP-camera system Video-IntegrationVideo Management Software (VMS) can integrate with other security systems such as Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) and Facial Recognition systems.

The integrated systems provide real-time notification and add a searchable database.  It can be easily integrated with an IP video surveillance security system. Take a look at the latest integration using C2P convergence software.

Panic buttons can be added to IP camera systems to provide immediate notification of security problems. They buttons can be placed in strategic locations or can be mobile. The new mobile panic buttons provide instant notification to the security staff. The IP camera system can be used to verify threats to the organization.

Long Range and Night Vision Cameras

Thermal and optical secuirty ptz cameraLong range PTZ surveillance cameras that work day or night are available with optical IP cameras and thermal imaging cameras. These two types of systems can view objects that are miles away in total darkness. There are also PTZ cameras with built-in IR illumination that can be used to see about 600 ft. away.

Long Range Optical PTZ cameras with IR

This very long range optical camera system is a night vision PTZ IP camera system that includes a high-resolution IP camera, very long zoom lens, and special laser IR illuminator to allow you to see details that are over 2 miles away. It attaches to your network and can be integrated into a complete security system.

Thermal Imaging Cameras

Select from military or commercial grade cameras that can see even when there’s no light. Thermal imaging cameras detect energy emitted from objects so intruders can be seen night or day. Objects can be seen through fog, smoke, sand, rain, and snow.

Night Vision IR PTZ cameras

Night Vision IR PTZ cameras allow you to see in the dark. These networked PTZ cameras with IR illuminator allow you to see over 180 meters (600 feet) away.


Analytic and Specialized Surveillance Systems

LPR license plate recognitionIP camera systems are getting more intelligent every day.  There are systems that can read license plate numbers so you can match them to a database, there are analytic camera functions that can create an alarm when someone leaves a package in the bus station or lobby, and others that automatically recognize a person’s face.

License Plate Recognition System (LPR)
The license plate capture system includes the sophisticated conversion from an image to digitized computer data that can be compared to a database. LPR analytics is built into some IP camera systems.

Specialized CCTV Analog Cameras

Special cameras for very low light or no light conditions are described. We compare hidden cameras, covert cameras, thermal imaging cameras, IR cameras, etc.

Complete City Surveillance System
