Video surveillance is an extremely important part of your self storage security system.  But with so many systems and new cameras on the market today, you might not know which is right for you.

 Technical information about ever-changing video surveillance systems can be unclear and hard to understand. What does 4k really offer that analogue doesn’t?  Never fear, we have you covered.

 This post will help take the headache out of picking a security camera system.  Read on to see which is right for your site.

 

IP

If you want the best available resolution and a short and sweet installation, go with an IP camera system.

IP camera systems are great for new commercial builds and self storage facilities.  You’ll get access to mobile apps and the FLIR Cloud so you can check in on your facility, anytime (and from anywhere). 

IP cameras are easy to install and mount and can be used indoor or outdoor (there are even FLIR IP cameras that are ideal for extremely frigid temperatures). 

 If you’re not dealing with a legacy camera system, go with FLIR IP.

 

Benefits of IP:

  • FLIR Cloud-access your cameras from your computer or phone, anytime from anywhere
  • Broadcast Quality Video
  • Multi-streaming at the highest frame rates
  • 4K Ultra HD at full frame rate and the lowest bit rate
  • P-Iris
  • Indoor/Outdoor
  • Vandal Resistant
  • IR Illumination
  • Web interface for viewing and configuration

 

MPX

MPX is an amazing option for anyone dealing with a pesky and outdated analogue video system.   MPX allows you to upgrade your existing analog system to HD resolution without removing your current wiring. That’s a win-win!

MPX systems are ideal for retrofits, because you can upgrade to HD without the expense of re-cabling. The transition to HD has never been easier.  The image above shows the difference between HD quality video (1080p & 720p)  and analogue. 

 

MPX also gives you access the FLIR cloud and FLIR Mobile so you can monitor your site, day or night.

 

Benefits of MPX:

  • FLIR Cloud access-access your feed from your computer or smartphone
  • Set real time alerts with FLIR Cloud 
  • Upgrade to HD with simple, low cost installation
  • 1080p & 720p resolutions 
  • Vandal resistant 
  • Web interface for viewing and configuration
