It’s only logical that companies turn their products obsolete to recapture another slice of their existing market share, so when they introduced PTZ technology the first thing out of my mouth was “OH MAN, I just can’t keep up!” Surely my original CCTV set-up was doing the trick, after all I had four cameras focused my property, so why would I ever bother shelling out more money for such an upgrade?
That’s when it hit me. If I was worried about “shelling out more money,” then maybe an upgrade in loss prevention wouldn’t be such a bad idea. After much digging I came across this GREAT blog from a few years back at Solomon’s VoIP World demonstrating Linksys’ first release of a PTZ camera and its role in IP Surveillance deployment. Only one camera was used to capture the same area that previously had been managed by four CCTV units, and also for the first time I would be able to take full control and position the cameras on a given location via my Dell Inspirion unit or my Apple iPhone when I’m on the go.
It is apparent the PTZ technology has been an excellent replacement for a fixed surveillance system, as it becomes the first featured camera to replace our current outdated technology and combine a wide array of security benefits for all members of on our top five list, whether they find themselves in an isolated region of their industries or in a community area facilitating many different demographics.
