Frequently Asked Questions For Steel Mill Security Systems

Is 720p Right For My Factory
Will 720p be enough to watch over my entire factory floor?

If your steel mill is using 720p security cameras, we would recommend an upgrade! Our most affordable security cameras start at 1080p/2MP, which is about double the resolution of a 720p camera. We offer security cameras that go all the way up to 4K/8MP. The higher the resolution a security camera has the more detail it can capture and the larger the area one camera can cover.

Storage Requirements For Cameras
Do different security camera resolutions take up more video storage space?

Yes. Both video resolution and frame rate (the number of images recorded per second) impact video file size. Other factors include the video codec, or compression algorathim, with H.264 being the older standard and H.265 being it's replacement. Let us know your storage requirements, expressed in a number of days you wish to save your video, and we will be happy to recommend appropriate recording equipment for your steel mill.

Do Security Companies Have Access To My Footage

Recordings are stored directly on your Network Video Recorder located onisite at your steel mill. The video and the equipment belong soley to you, with no monthly fees.
