This item in our Top 10 IT services is probably the one item that has the most potential to become number one very shortly. Video surveillance originally started as a very simple idea. Originally, cameras were mounted outside of buildings and there was a hard wired connection and power source to every camera that eventually run back to one centralized video recording system. That recorder saved all files for historical purposes. It looked like an old VHS recorder, and it was the only way for you to view the recordings.
As the Internet has evolved in a capacity and capabilities, many businesses have increased their network capacity to handle more devices. One of these devices that has improved to be added to the network is video surveillance cameras. The new style of video surveillance devices are very different than the old coax devices that were found on a building. The new devices are all IP based. This means that you no longer need an old cable and the power adapter to go to a camera attached to your building, now all you need to do is run an inexpensive RJ – 45 network cable to the camera and it will work. The network cable will carry not only the video stream the voice stream but also power to the camera!
With the video surveillance cameras being network based now the world of possibilities is wide open! There are IP based video cameras with 4 mini cameras built in, domes to cover 360 degrees, directional cameras, angled cameras and many more! Many times customers ask EisnerAmper to offer a video surveillance system that the business owner can view from their mobile device anywhere in the world. We also have the ability to now combine door access locks with the video surveillance system all in one concise device.
