Frequently, we are asked whether a HD over coax or IP camera is better. The answer is, it depends on the application and the environment you intend to use the camera in. To help understand why a network security camera (aka IP camera) might be better in one respect, is to understand the plethora of tweaks that can be done inside the camera's web interface.

How many motion alerts have you gotten today? Has it been 10? 20? 50? Maybe you’ve started to lose count. Maybe you’re tired. Too tired of checking your phone because its most likely just another person walking by your place of business or your neighbor walking the dogs. Maybe this one is important? Or maybe it's just a bug flying against your camera. At one point you thought  about turning off motion detection but you worry about missing a possible break-in. How often has this happened to you? Video based motion detection just seems to have too many false positive alerts leaving you anxious and worried that it works at all! What’s the point of motion alerts if you are constantly getting alerts that are of no use?

People Counting technology is a sought after video analytics function in surveillance cameras used for retail analytics, queue management, building management, and other security purposes. People Counting can be used in array of applications for different reasons in settings such as train stations, apartment buildings, churches, retail stores, supermarkets, and other high footfall conversion environments. While deterring criminal activity with a security camera, safely evaluate the amount of traffic walking through your event or store. With people counting, video analytics can confirm the success of promotional or charity events to understand what activities create more profit. Even reduce labor costs in a retail store by gathering data on when there is a higher-influx of people.

It uses video analytics to detect the shape of a face; specifically, the space between the eyes. Once a face is detected, the camera then sends a picture of the information to your NVR to analyze and process the data in order to improve its functionality. The more face detection is used, the better the application performs. Setup properly, face detection has the capacity to take a snapshot of a face, record faces and action happening, and notify you via a push alert to your Smartphone or email.

Heat Mapping is a Smart Detection function offered in some of our high-end network camera products. It is a video analytics tool to provide a graphic overlay in the form of a heat map displaying the area and frequency of motion detected in the video captured by a camera. Heat Mapping is mentioned in many high-end business magazines and news websites, such as TheVerge and CNN, as a quality merchandising tool. A heat map of motion detected in an area can be used to track customer movement to better understand consumer behavior. Heat Mapping is also used to evaluate the traffic of populated areas, whether that be a museum, highway, or amusement park.

Using Intrusion Detection on your Security Camera Intrusion smart detection is a video analytics function on select security cameras we carry here at CCTV Camera World. Just like Tripwire, Intrusion detection monitors an area by detecting and surveying movement to capture events. The Intrusion feature is an intuitive Smart Detection method that is used to record break-ins or other criminal activity for prosecution. With proper configuration, Intrusion detection is applicable for almost any scenario. It can be used for supervising a warehouse, bank, retail store, or just watching entries and exits to even covering windows. As show in this guide, draw a virtual box around your entry/exit point to monitor any area for trespassing.

Let's say you've had the recorder of your previous security camera system  stolen and are looking for a way to backup video from the system this time around. Thanks to technology in almost all of our recorders, video feed for every camera on the primary recorder can be backed up in live mode to a secondary recorder called a NVR (network video recorder). This guide will show you how to achieve that task.

The need for intelligent security tools especially designed to better observe and recognize objects that have been left behind for a period of time has become a want of many highly-populated areas. To mitigate the concern of highly populated areas being attacked, enterprise level surveillance camera technology developed video analytics functions such as Abandoned Object Detection. While enterprise level security cameras protecting major cities use advanced computer hardware to continuously analyze security footage for possible criminal and terrorism associated behaviors, the Abandoned Object Detection function has trickled down to security camera products available to the home or business consumer. In this guide we will show you how to take advantage of this technology using a Smart Detection capable security camera purchased from CCTV Camera World.

It is a more effective way of monitoring and guarding an area of interest than simple motion detection. Despite motion detection being a commonly sought after feature on security cameras, there are multiple occasions of false positive alerts. Instead, use the Tripwire function if your camera supports it. Please refer the to the product description of the camera you purchased to determine whether it supports the Tripwire function. This video guide will show you how to properly set the Tripwire rule.
