4 Big Improvements In 15 Years Of Surveillance Camera Tech

July 15th, 2019

High-tech fields like phones, computers, and software design are always advancing quickly.  15 years ago were exceptions rather than the rule, computers were much slower, and VR technology was still a mistake of the past rather than a wave of the future.  Camera technology has been a part of this improvement, and that includes the surveillance cameras uses by businesses and homeowners of every variety.  If you think security cameras are still bulky and wired to a set of CRT screens with blurry images, then you haven’t heard how their technology has changed.

  1. Better Image Quality

The HD revolution has affected more than just television.  HD cameras are much easier to find these days, and most smartphones offer some incredible picture quality.  You can also get security cameras with HD, ultra-HD, and 4k resolutions, which means you can zoom in on an image and still get enough quality to identify people and watch what their hands are doing.  This means you can place one high-definition camera in one corner of your store or office and be able to see what people are doing at the other end of the room.

  1. IP Connections

Old camera models used to need two wire connections:  one to send images to the central recording device and one to power the camera.  However, a modern camera can use a local wireless connection to send its footage directly to the recording device.  This IP (internet protocol) connection can also be encrypted so that a hacker won’t be able to hijack the signal and either see the footage or interrupt it with their own fake broadcast.  The lack of wires also removes one weak point someone could exploit, and with battery power you can move a camera wherever you want.

  1. Cloud Storage

Security cameras don’t have to send their footage to a physical storage device on your property.  Since they use IP connections, they can send their footage to a remote cloud server that offers much more storage space than a local computer.  This means you won’t have to wipe old footage as often as you might normally, or you can install more cameras with higher picture quality and still have enough room to record all their footage.

  1. Remote Access

Thanks to the wireless camera connections and online storage options, you don’t have to be in the security office or even in the same building to review your cameras’ footage or watch a live feed.  Instead, you can use an app designed by your security company to access your cameras from anywhere in the world.  The same app can also arm your alarm, send you alerts from motion-sensing devices, and more.

Modern security cameras can offer much more than the old CCTV systems that pioneered local surveillance.  Better camera quality lets you capture much more detail from farther away, and better storage gives you more space for footage and easier access.  Contact Security Feed to find out more about what a modern surveillance setup can do for you.

"Steve I just wanted to thank you and your partner Ray Kindsfather for the fine work you men did installing the security cameras around my home. The quality of the pictures is excellent, the clarity in day or infrared mode is exactly what I was looking for. What good is a camera if you can't identify the person and these cameras will greatly assist the police in identifying a perpetrator. The computer side of the job is easy and fast with very little adjustment time for me in finding what I want to see. Software and hardware get A+++++ no doubt about. The Ring is equally easy to use and the quality of the camera is equally strong. The installation was clean and fast. You maintain a clean site, it’s like you were never here. You answered all my questions with pin point accuracy. Integrity suits you well. Your answers were honest and to the point. Refreshing in today’s world. All and all you and Ray make a strong team at DWS Technology LLC. I have no problem recommending you to friend or family, home or business. God bless you both with your business. I will call you for future installations. "

"Ray, in reviewing several different security cameras there were many good products, but none met my criteria of clarity and no long-term contract. Raymond, you showed me one product that caught my attention with the clarity and distance viewing that I could not get with other systems. The zoom after a few feet became distorted with the other systems but with the Alibi NVR package you demoed, we could zoom in and out with clarity which made this product stand out from all the rest. The NVR system is so simple, in fact, anyone can configure the system to suit their needs. You can monitor your home from your smartphone or tablet and having security cameras makes it a great deterrent for criminal activity. DWS Technology delivered as promised! Your installation crew worked clean and treated my home as if it was their own. Great attention to detail! I will recommend DWS Technology to anyone! Great job guys!"
