Why to Upgrade Security Camera System to 4K Camius

If your security camera system is old or otherwise outdated, then you should think about upgrading your security cameras and recording system with modern solutions.

Upgrading your security system is essential, whether for residential or business purposes. The following guide will help you understand why you need to upgrade your outdated security camera and recording system, along with the best options for upgrading your system.

Why You Need to Upgrade Outdated Security Camera System

Why is it so important to upgrade your security system? The following are the most significant reasons to upgrade your security camera and overall system as soon as possible.

Digital is replacing analog security systems:

While some systems still use analog, analog systems are no longer as common due to advances in digital technology such as IP camera systems. Digital IP camera systems have benefits such as being more cost-effective, having higher data retention rates, and so on. Older analog systems are beginning to reach the end of their technology life and will likely be obsolete within the next decade.

IP camera systems have a more stable end result:

When compared to previous old security system cameras, IP camera systems provide a much higher-end video result. This is due to features available in new security camera products, such as more advanced zoom options, automatic image stabilizing, and more. When it comes to providing security footage, you definitely want to ensure that your surveillance system is securing the highest result possible.

IP camera systems have a more stable end result:

IP CCTV modern technology solution comes with the unique ability to connect to other types of modern technology. Many modern IP camera solutions can be integrated with other platforms, allowing you greater control over the system and a range of other useful options.

How to add IP Camera to Camius DVR (Advanced Security XVR)

Camius Trivault DVR recorders are designed to support analog security cameras via coaxial wiring and IP cameras over the Network. To add an IP camera to Camius DVR, you'd need to add PoE cameras to your local Network. Then, connect a regular network or PoE switch to the LAN port of the Camius DVR. Based on the example of a Camius 16-channel DVR, the connecting diagram illustrates this process. This system allows users to quickly and seamlessly integrate analog and IP cameras, providing greater flexibility in security camera selection.

If you are not using a PoE (power-over-ethernet) switch or a PoE injector, you can power the IP camera by connecting a UL-listed 12VDC-2AMP power supply to the DC plug on the camera and an ethernet cable between the IP camera and the router or switch on your local network.

What is a PoE camera System?

As security and surveillance have become increasingly important, the demand for advanced camera systems has also risen. PoE cameras are one such system gaining popularity among businesses and homeowners. Camius PoE cameras are a great option if you're looking for a PoE camera system.

Power over Ethernet Technology

PoE stands for Power over Ethernet, a technology that allows power and data to be transmitted over a single Ethernet cable. In other words, PoE cameras don't require a separate power supply because they draw power from the Ethernet cable that is connected to them. Since Camius PoE cameras have a built-in microphone, PoE wiring also provides audio!

PoE camera systems are becoming more popular for several reasons. Firstly, they are easier to install because they require fewer cables. Secondly, they are more flexible because they can be placed in locations without a nearby power outlet. Finally, they are more reliable because they are not susceptible to power outages or surges that can damage the camera or its power supply.

Camius offers only advanced NVR network video recorders with high bandwidth, bitrate, and features with 24/7 access to recorded footage saved on your local hard drive, without charging any subscription fees, which can work as a standalone system with and without the Internet. The PoE camera system needs a broadband Internet connection for remote monitoring.

Steps when Analog Camera is not connecting to your Camius DVR

The Camius hybrid DVR digital video recorder is a versatile recording device that can work with both analog over coaxial and IP cameras over network wiring. It provides a reliable and efficient solution for capturing and storing video footage from different types of cameras. However, sometimes you may encounter issues with your analog camera not displaying on your surveillance DVR audio video recorder, accompanied by a video loss message on the channel. To help resolve this issue, we have outlined the following seven steps to troubleshoot the problem.

Troubleshooting Steps when for Analog Camera is not connecting to your Camius DVR (Video Loss)

Step 1 – Try a different analog (BNC) channel

If the analog camera is not displaying on your security camera DVR, the first step is to try a different BNC channel. Physically plug the camera into a different analog channel to see if the problem persists. Swap the working analog security camera for a nonworking BNC channel. This will help you determine if the issue is with the BNC surveillance camera or the channel itself.

Step 2 – Check the analog camera power supply

Ensure that the power supply for your analog security cameras and Camius DVR is functioning properly and delivering stable power. Check the fuse box and power splitter if the analog cameras share a power supply. This will help you identify if a power issue affects the camera's ability to display on the DVR.

Step 3 – Check the coaxial cable connections

Check the connections between the analog cameras and the DVR to ensure all cables are properly connected and secure. Look for any signs of physical damage to the cables and replace them if necessary. This will help you determine whether the cables or the connections are the problems.

Step 4 – Test with a new cable and new power supply

If you have determined that the cables and connections are in good condition, test the camera with a new cable and power supply. This will help you identify if an issue with the current cable or power supply affects the camera's ability to display on the DVR.

Step 5 – Check the BNC connectors and replace them

Check the BNC connectors on the analog cameras and the DVR to see if they are in good condition. If they are damaged, replace them with new connectors to help resolve the issue.

Step 6 – Check the video settings

Ensure that the video settings on the DVR match the ‘Camera Type‘ settings on the analog cameras. This includes ensuring that the correct video input is selected between AUTO, TVI, and AHD. This will help you determine if the problem is with the video settings affecting the camera's ability to display on the DVR.

Step 7 – Reset channels

If the above steps do not resolve the issue, reset the channel section to the (factory) settings. To do this, navigate to Setup >> System >> Maintenance >> Load Default >> Select the Channel checkbox and hit the Apply tab. This will reset the channel settings to the default settings, which may help resolve the issue.
