We offer network surveillance and IP cameras from premier brands, including Bosch, HIK Vision, Dahua, and Axis. With the latest network cameras, you can expect clear recordings and crisp IP surveillance images regardless of the lighting conditions.
What kinds of IP cameras are available?
At Union Alarm, our selection includes IP bullet cameras, IP dome cameras, and IP mini domes with motorized zoom lens control, and full sized PTZ cameras.
How do IP cameras work?
First, the IP camera captures a video stream; then, the system compresses the file to save space and transmits it through a local network to an NVR recording device (Network Video Recorder). Surveillance files are then stored on the NVR’s hard drives.
Do outdoor IP cameras have vandal proof ratings?
Yes. Most outdoor IP cameras have an IK10 vandal-proof rating. The IK (or impact protection) rating measures the camera’s impact resistance. Cameras with an IK10 rating have protection against 20 joules of impact—that’s enough to withstand a sledgehammer attack.
Are IP dome cameras water-proof?
Generally, yes—but ratings vary depending on which camera you choose. Waterproof capabilities are measured by IP65, IP66, and IP67; higher ratings indicate better protection. Most outdoor IP cameras are waterproof to varying degrees.
If moisture gets inside of your IP dome camera, it can create serious problems. An IP67-rated camera is hermetically sealed to prevent water penetration from submersion or direct spray.
Video compression! Why is it so important?
Video compression reduces file sizes, freeing up bandwidth and lowering your storage requirements. H.265 compression allows for further reduced file sizes than H.264 compression. With more efficient compression, you can drop your storage requirements by up to 50%
