Why Choose An IP Camera?

IP Cameras have come a long way in the last decade and are continuing to grow in popularity compared to CCTV systems.

The simple matter of the fact is IP cameras can do what traditional analog cameras (CCTV Systems) do, at a fraction of the costs and do it wirelessly.

Although CCTV systems do a good job, they are most times cost prohibitive for small to mid sized businesses and especially end users. 

CCTV systems are designed primarily for use in large corporations, financial and government institutions, casinos, correctional facilities or for places where security and strict monitoring is required.  

For the average users they are just too big and expense and that’s where IP cameras come in.  They fill this niche market where dollars count, where the user can install, operate and maintain.


  • Minimal To No Maintenance.
  • No Added Labour.
  • No Added Install Charges.
  • No Added Components.
  • No Monthly/Annual Monitoring Fees.
  • No Licensing Fees
