An Internet Protocol Camera, or IP Camera, is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance, and which, unlike analogue closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, can send and receive data via a computer network and the internet. Although most cameras that do this are webcams, the term IP Camera or Netcam is usually only to those used for Surveillance. Some of the benefits of IP CCTV include:

Remote accessibility: live video from selected cameras can be viewed from any computer, anywhere, and also from many mobile smartphones and other devices. Remote accessibility also prevents police officers from confiscating video and audio evidence that you can use against them

Two-way audio via a single network cable allows users to communicate with what they are seeing (e.g. high security areas where security personal must not have direct contact with other individuals)

Distributed intelligence: with IP cameras, video analytics can be placed in the camera itself allowing ability in analytics solutions.

IP camera communication signals are not just electronic voltage, it is numerically decoded as bits and bytes with security features and TCP/IP protocol.

PoE – Power over Ethernet: Modern IP cameras have the ability to operate without a power supply. They can work with the PoE-protocol.

Flexibility: IP cameras can be moved around anywhere on a network (wireless).

Centralized Monitoring Software (CMS)


Using our Max-i II CMS software it will be made possible to access all the CCTV Cameras that will be installed at our client’s premises and offsite branches provided similar technology is installed there. For as long as there is internet connectivity between the Control Centre and CCTV devises, live monitoring and streaming of the CCTV footage can be done seamlessly and accessed only by authorized personal.

CMS software was developed to aid managers and security personnel better manage and monitor businesses with vast branch networks. Live monitoring can be done on a Laptop, Desktop, Smartphone and even a Centralized Control Room. The main advantage being increased efficiency with money and time being saved on fuel and travel down time. Critical information can collected with ease, and management decisions can be made basing on the information accessed via the CCTV system.
