Businesses are using wireless video surveillance cameras more often than traditional analog systems in an effort to enhance physical security in a more convenient and economical way. Since wireless solutions are much more flexible than traditional tools, decision-makers won't need to pin down any cameras in specific locations, as the devices can easily be moved around to fit nearly any sized structure, according to a report by itVAR News Network.
Since wireless surveillance transfers data through the internet, it is also capable of handling much larger capacities than legacy models, allowing organizations to capture high-definition video and review footage from virtually any location, the news source said.
These benefits have given way to a new era of surveillance in which nearly any business, regardless of size, can implement highly affordable and effective cameras. As more small firms leverage surveillance tools, the market will expand at a compound annual growth rate of more than 19 percent through 2016, at which time it will generate more than $25 billion in revenue, according to MarketsandMarkets.
IP-based solutions can also play a significant role in an integrated security system that ties together multiple security applications.
