IP Systems

Over the last 12 months we have seen a lot more interest in IP camers and NVR recorders, as people become more aware of the flexablility and image quality these cameras can produce. but beware! most of the smaller security providers tend to use cheap inport looker likes, which are very basic HD opperating in 720P at 1.3 mega pixal; these cameras work perfectly fine but with limited performance.

Hear at GCS we pride ourselves in only providing Good Quality Systems, all our cameras operate in 1080P HD and the lowest resolution we use is 2.4 mega pixal, ranging up to 6.0 mega pixal, the average being 3.0 mega pixal.

Above are some of the IP cameras in our range,

the one on the top left alaso has built in audio

they come with either fixed lenses or vary-

focal. there are custom made back boxes and

brackets for mounting all of these cameras.

The advantages of IP Systems over standard systems is there flexibility, the camera only requires a single small cat5e cable to supply power and signal, which is easy to run and less obtrusive than both coax and power cables. And if you already have a network in place with spare capacity the jobs half done.



Fully functional PTZ cameras are also available in the IP range, this one has a 20 x opticle lens and built in IR illuminators up to a range of 100 meters, it has a continuos pan of 360 deg and can look down to the ground. A true day night camera with IR cut filter.

Digital Recorders, otherwise known as NVR's (network video recordes), these units come in a range of sizes from a basic 4 channel unit to a 32 channel unit, most of them come with built in POE facilities (power over eithernet), image storage capacity can be calculated on the number of cameras and the recording time required, and the appropriate hard drives fitted, the range is from 1TB - 24TB's

Another advantage is the ability to remotely view live images on your mobile phone or tablet, from anyware all you need is a wifi connection or a 4G service
