Analog Security Cameras
Analog cameras are the original in security camera technology and remain the most established and popular camera choice. It’s estimated that up to 70% of existing security camera systems currently in use are analog. These basic cameras deliver standard definition video (640x480) over coaxial cabling with a direct connection to a DVR box. Installation for analog security camera systems does not require complex network infrastructures, giving these systems a lower entry price than IP solutions.
