IP Security Cameras are substantially more expensive than analog and require at least some knowledge of IP Networks to properly install and maintain. Video quality is usually better than that of analog cameras, but it depends on the Megapixel rating of the cameras in question. Live viewing IP Cameras with less than 2 Megapixels will deliver footage at a resolution of 720P while IP Cameras with 2 Megapixels or more will deliver footage at a resolution of 1080P for live viewing. As with the analog systems, the playback of recorded video is limited by the NVR. Generally speaking, we don’t recommend IP Cameras for a DIY home security camera installations because of the up front installation time and complexity. If you are looking for the best video quality possible for both live and recorded surveillance footage, the only option is an HD SDI System consisting of both HD SDI Cameras and HD SDI DVR. This system will provide real time 1080P Video exactly like watching TV in high definition and does not require any special knowledge of networks to install and maintain. HD Security Cameras can provide up to six times higher resolution than standard video cameras, giving you much clearer video quality on your home camera system. HD SDI Systems are the state of the art and while the cost is more than the basic analog systems it is substantially less than a comparable IP System. The only downside is that, because of the much higher resolution these security cameras record at, they require about 3 times as much hard drive storage capacity as standard analog systems. When it comes to enterprise level security, the benefits far exceed the costs on an HD SDI system and it will provide you with some of the the highest quality recordings that the surveillance industry currently offers.

Each time we update our reviews, we also update our scores based on how customers currently perceive the products. We do this by extensively researching user reviews at retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Home Depot and Lowe's. When we test, we borrow some of the DIY security systems from their manufacturers and buy others. Although we may reach out for technical support or for clarification on a particular feature, the companies have no input on our testing practices and we don’t share our results or rankings with them before publishing our reviews. As we researched this topic and security systems in general, we reached out to Jamie Vos, vice president of the Electronic Security Association ESA for his thoughts on DIY systems. He emphasized professional monitoring for security systems: “If you receive a text alert, you may not be in a condition to respond and you may not hear an alarm.
