Latest Challenge Follow-up

The new surveillance system has been up for over two months now. It’s working flawlessly.

I discovered that there are two basic types of surveillance cameras: analog and digital (also called “IP” cameras). No big surprise there. There are several types of standalone surveillance machines; analog inputs, digital inputs, and hybrid input machines which are fitted with both analog and digital.

For this installation I chose the hybrid model. Hybrids are a bit pricey but they allowed the client to keep their analog cameras. In the future, should new cameras be needed, we will use digital cameras. The wiring and connectivity is much easier and IP cameras are more readily available.

So, job done. The client is happy, I’m happy, and the system is working well.

You learn something new every day.
