Commercial Security Cameras - Envisioning Your Security

Every business in Iowa should have security cameras or some type of surveillance system installed. Pairing security cameras with a commercial security system ensures the maximum safety and protection for both customers and employees at the office. While the camera options are seemingly endless, Strauss Security Solutions has teamed up with the best manufacturers in the industry to install high-performance, high-res cameras for your business.

Types of Security Cameras

Before delving into the features and benefits of our product line, here’s what you need to know about the different types of security cameras available. Whether you’re located in Des Moines, Iowa City, or Cedar Rapids, contact Strauss and we’ll discuss your options and help you decide which security camera is best for your office.

  • IP cameras, or internet protocol cameras, have become increasingly popular as technology advances. These digital cameras can send and receive data through the internet or a computer network. You may also hear IP cameras referred to as network cameras.

    • NVRs (network video recorders) are commonly associated with IP cameras. Video footage is encoded and processed at the camera and then streamed to the NVR for storage or remote video viewing.

  • HD Analog TVI (high-definition analog transport video interface) is the latest and greatest upgrade to traditional analog CCTV (closed-circuit television) cameras. Using the same coax cable of traditional analog cameras, HD TVI processes and transports the signal digitally for video used in HD security cameras and DVRs.

    • DVRs (digital video recorders) function similarly to NVRs, except they record analog or coax-cable-based cameras.

  • CCTV analog systems connect cameras, display monitors, and recording devices in a closed circuit for surveillance purposes. Traditional CCTV analog systems produce low-resolution images, so oftentimes footage turns out grainy or difficult to decipher.

Digital Watchdog
Digital Watchdog produces top-quality IP cameras with a robust video management system. The best part? Software and the mobile app are free and updates are free for life. Their IP camera solutions include MEGApix® IP megapixel cameras that are recorded with crisp quality to Blackjack NVRs. Digital Watchdog’s open platform creates scalable, feature-rich surveillance systems that are easy to use. Camera views are fully customizable with advanced PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) control. IP video systems can be deployed as new systems, or we can upgrade your existing analog system to a hybrid IP system by encoding existing analog cameras into an IP NVR to migrate to an all IP system in the future. Strauss will find the best video solution for your business.
