How IP Surveillance Systems Can Reduce Business Energy Consumption
Less is less when it comes to network surveillance and energy
"There's clearly a social obligation for all of us as individuals and as businesses to reduce the amount of energy we use and to lower the carbon emissions we all know are damaging our planet," says Steven Kenny, Axis Communications' Business Development Manager for the A&E Programme, UK and Ireland. It's a subject many businesses take very seriously, and yet the important role IP video surveillance systems can play has gone largely unexplored.
"This is a subject rarely explored by people when reviewing their surveillance systems," says Kenny, "but they should be adding energy saving to the list of benefits offered by IP surveillance. The simple explanation is that better technology means businesses need fewer cameras to do the same or an even a better job."
This White Paper covers how today's systems can use fewer cameras, thus providing energy savings.
Improvements in resolutions, fields of view, multistreaming and cameras that need less light, among others, allow today's systems to be more energy efficient.
