If I'm on a Budget, can I Still Afford an IP Camera System?
Despite what some might believe, an IP-based security camera system is actually quite affordable and has the potential to provide a hefty return on investment if used to its fullest.
The cost of cabling CCTV cameras (also called "analog") can be 2-3 times more expensive than the cost of installing IP cameras. How is that possible? Consider this fact: CCTV camera systems require two separate cables, one for powering the cameras and the other for sending video signals. This lends to the increase in installation costs.
IP camera systems on the other hand only require an Ethernet cable to send and receive data. In other words, this creates a simplified installation since the Ethernet cable provides both power and network connectivity. No need to hire certified electricians when installing your system -- IP cameras can be installed in-house by someone with basic networking experience.
What's more, an IP camera system is scalable, allowing you to easily grow the number of IP cameras over time without worrying about additional installation costs or technical limitations.
