Image or video quality gets low
The video and image quality has evolved through time. Old camera systems don not show high-quality images and with zooming gives an unintelligible image of people or vehicle number, in case of any burglary or hit and run respectively.
Why wait until you find out the low quality of the image of your old analog security camera and instead take a proactive approach and upgrade it to an IP? It comes with high-resolution images besides other added features like license plate recognition, Pan-Tilt-Zoom, and remote viewing options.
The old analog security cameras with DVR for storage are not capable of handling too much of data. So, if you think of saving money by avoiding up-gradation, you will be actually spending more with additional DVRs to store data. Instead with modern cameras having compression capabilities can store more data without lowering any image resolution.
Besides the above-mentioned limitations, old analog security systems often lack remote accessibility of modern systems. Also, they may not have integration scope for alarms and access control systems. It is essential to be able to remotely access the surveillance area from your tablet, smartphone or computer.
