  • Video quality - IP cameras provide overall higher video quality than analogue cameras. They offer more video site ranges, such as a wide or narrow field of view, and better zoom-in capabilities. And because they transmit truly digital signals, they offer far greater video detail, which makes them much better for facial recognition or detecting license plate numbers.

  • Resolution - Generally, digital cameras provide resolutions 6 to 20 times higher than analogue cameras. IP cameras offer resolutions that can range from 1.3 megapixels to 5 megapixels (2560 x 1920) of compressed, encoded transmissions. This gives you the ability to cover a far wider viewing area or to get far more detailed pictures in narrow, zoom-in viewing areas.

  • Transmission media - IP cameras also work over twisted-pair, coax cable, and with wireless connections.

  • PoE capabilities - One of the advantages of IP cameras is that they can be powered over the twisted-pair Ethernet cable, thus eliminating worries over running electrical wire.

  • Distance - IP cameras can send digital video 100 metres over twisted-pair Ethernet cable and unlimited distances over IP networks. Because the images are digital, they maintain 100% of their clarity over long distances and when the signal is converted between different formats.

  • Intelligence and manageability - IP cameras offer network intelligence and remote manageability. They can stream images, and different parts of images, to different recipients simultaneously. They can perform additional tasks such as sending a message when they detect motion, facial recognition, facial detection, ANPR, site traffic analysis, loitering alerts, people counting, perimeter surveillance, thermal detection and deep learning AI to name a few.

  • Ease of installation - IP cameras can accept power, video, audio, PTZ control, and control signals over a single cable.

  • Security - IP cameras make data difficult to intercept. They encrypt and compress data before transporting it over the Internet to your server and they have VPN support.

  • Reliability - IP systems have built-in reliability due to the data encryption and compression. They are as reliable as the network is, although backup systems can be put in place to minimise outages.

  • Expandability - IP cameras offer more expandability and scalability than analogue cameras because their cabling requirements are less complex. But it is still possible to leverage your existing cabling infrastructure when migrating to IP cameras with the use of converters and extenders.

  • Costs - IP camera systems are thought to be more expensive because the cost of the cameras is higher than for analogue cameras. This isn't true, the  price of IP cameras continues to drop and are now on an equal level for the cost on a like for like basis. But the overall cost of an IP system may be less than anticipated due to lower costs for cabling, recording equipment, and labor.


  • Video quality - Analogue cameras have overall lower quality than IP cameras. Analogue cameras have more limited site ranges and don’t offer the zoom-in clarity of IP cameras. If you zoom in on the analogue images, you’re going to get a grainier, degraded picture. It’s not like what you see on TV cop shows. If you’re using an analogue camera, you’re not going to recognise the perpetrators face by zooming in.

  • Resolution - Analogue cameras are limited to resolutions of the NTSC/PAL standard of 720 x 480 pixels (NTSC)/575 (PAL) or 0.4 megapixels (4CIF). Analogue camera resolutions range rom 420 to 700; which at the high end can produce sharp images. 

  • Transmission media - Traditional analogue cameras operate over coax cable. They can also work over, twisted-pair cable or with wireless connections, but that produces less resolution.

  • PoE capabilities - Older analogue cameras can not be PoE powered and so extra cable has to be ran to provide power to the cameras.

  • Distance - Analogue cameras can send video over twisted-pair cable up to 1.5 kilometres away and up to 300 metres away over coax cable. But analogue transmissions lose clarity with increased distance and when the signal is converted from one format to another.

  • Intelligence and manageability - Older analog systems have no intelligence or remote manageability. This has changed in recent times with analog cameras getting a basic AI intelligence but it is no where near to the standard of todays IP CCTV systems

  • Ease of installation - Analogue cameras require more cabling than IP cameras. For instance, they require a separate cable to control the pan, tilt, and zoom functions. If there is audio, another cable is required. One analogue camera may require three separate cables: power, audio, video.

  • Security - Analogue cameras are far more vulnerable to security breaches because the feeds can be physically intercepted and tapes and recording devices can be stolen. Analogue video feeds are also not encrypted.

  • Reliability - Analogue security cameras have been around for more than half a century and have a long history of reliability.

  • Expandability - Analog systems are lot more complex to expand on due to ability of the DVR and the fact that power has to ran to each camera.

  • Costs - Low end analog systems are cheaper than IP systems but the resolution and technology are completely 

When it comes to choosing the right CCTV system for your home or business you'll come across a lot of information which can become quite daunting. Such as resolution, lens size, Infrared types, face detection, face recognition etc. So before you move on to the types of CCTV cameras we can install, have a quick read of our guide page to help you understand what it is you're looking for.

Types of Cameras

CCTV For Business

TiOC WizSense cameras are a series of low cost IP CCTV cameras with built in AI. The built in artificial intelligence learning focuses on human and vehicle detection with enhanced accuracy, enabling users to create alearts and searching based on defined targets.

A turret security camera, also called an eyeball camera, is a small camera with a ball and socket design. It gets its name from the fact that the ball-like camera can pivot in any direction inside its socket mount.

The bullet surveillance cameras are often installed outside to a wall or a ceiling and point at a certain direction like the barrel of guns.

PTZ cameras are used in situations in which the machine vision camera must move to cover a larger area or automatically identify and follow a moving target. They are a common choice for the most advanced security and surveillance applications, such as the monitoring of critical infrastructure.

Dome security cameras get their name by their circular, dome shape. The security camera is encased in a transparent protective dome. Although dome security cameras can be used both indoors and outdoors, many businesses including hotels, restaurants, and retail stores use dome cameras inside due to their discrete design.

Fisheye security cameras, known for their ultra-wide-angle lens, are capable of providing video surveillance with dynamic viewing angles, including panoramic 180 degrees and 360 degrees. When using a wide-angle panoramic IP camera, images are typically warped, which creates the effect of a fisheye.

10 Reasons why you should have CCTV in your life

1 - Deter Criminals

One of the primary benefits of a video security system is to deter a criminal act from ever happening. Therefore, well placed cameras will give would-be criminals reason for pause, or send them looking for locations less prepared.

2 - Prevent Theft

According to recent retail industry studies, the average small business loses £50k per year. And given the current economic conditions and ease at which criminals can move stolen products, the risk of both internal and external theft has skyrocketed. Likewise, It’s proven that a simple video security system can easily cut that figure in half.


3 - Improve Productivity

According to reports, the biggest cost businesses face today is workforce productivity. Security cameras help to keep people on their best behaviour when you’re not there, and enable a manager to monitor work habits on his own schedule.

4 - Reduce Liability

Many criminals look to benefit by making false claims against companies. Lacking evidence to defend themselves, businesses literally get robbed blind with zero recourse. Video security is an effective deterrent to this criminal activity, and can contest these claims should they occur. NOTE: False claims often stem from employees reporting incidents outside your security system’s field of view. We recommend that businesses augment their traditional video with covert cameras, so no one knows where safe havens for both crime and false claims are, and where they are not.

5 - Protect Intellectual Property

Your unscrupulous competitor would pay dearly to know your company secrets. Strategically placed cameras can help prevent those with access and intent to stealing your intellectual property think twice.

6 - Manage Remotely

Many video security systems feature software capable of viewing multiple facilities from a single location. This can dramatically reduce your equipment expense and management overhead costs, and allow managers to oversee company wide operations despite geographic and time challenges.

7 - Enhance Customer Experience

Many retail businesses use their video security systems to study customer shopping habits, optimize store traffic patterns, improve product placement, and ensure a positive customer experience. More effective employees + increased sales + satisfied customers = one happy manager.

8 - Streamline Operations

The video is commonly use in manufacturing or fulfilment environments to monitor equipment. In result, quickly identifying problems that may cause delays or bottlenecks. The video is also used to provide valuable insight into process effectiveness, and to make sure a business or operation is appropriately staffed.

9 - Validate Alarms

Business owners and managers alike lose hours of sleep responding to false alarms that their business has been broken into. With a networked video security system, validation is just a mouse click away and you can get your sleep or enjoy your vacation.

10 - Deliver Peace of Mind

Ultimately, business managers and homeowners are simply looking for peace of mind protecting their assets and providing a safe and secure environment for employees, friends, and family. And in the event of incident, knowing they are empowered to bring the offender to justice something only a video security system can deliver.
