5 ways to help keep your IP Video Surveillance Network Secure

5 ways to help keep your IP video surveillance network secure to lessen the security risks for your customers, help build your business reputation and keep your clients secure.

  1. Remote Access Risk Assessment: Remote network access is a great tool to save a business from paying for an on-site service call and even eLine Technical support agents will use it but we want our clients to be prepared and secure with the appropriate tools.

Remote network access can be accomplished in a variety of ways, but we recommend that you use secure or temporary access and only provide that access to trusted parties.

If you are using a eLine product or have a security system with remote monitoring over a browser you can provide access to your system by creating a designated login for your support agent, with this you can track who has the login and see when a person logs in and, when your ready, you also have the ability to remove the user, change the password or edit user permissions. Providing a custom user gives you complete control over who has the ability to use your system.

Our support team also utilizes a third party tool called “Team Viewer” this product allows for remote access by creating a session between two people and they only the thing both parties need is the software to use it. The best part is that the user must be available to accept access to the network, meaning that your business is completely in control on who has access and when.

Caution: if a device is exposed to a public internet, there will need to be port forwarding, if you must use this method, try to use a no standard port besides (80, 21, 22, 23, 25, 554, ect.)

  1. Use VLANS or Virtual LANS: Virtual Lans (VLANS) are used to create network segmentation, filter broadcast traffic, and enhance network security. By using VLANs to separate general business LAN traffic and your IP Video surveillance equipment, you can ensure the network are invisible to each other.
  2. Prevent unauthorized access with a firewall: any on site DVR, NVR or video management system should have a firewall for protection.


  1. Setup regular system backups: Maintaining complete system backups will keep you prepare and help assure that any system outage is minimal


  1. Disable unused Network ports: By disabling the unused ports you limit the risk of someone trying to gain access to the network by simply plugging in a patch cable.


What happens when your client doesn’t have a security policy? These suggestions work best when documented and enforced. If an end user does not have a security policy, you may choose to create one as a part of their security package. Provide the client with the essential documentation they need to keep their network secure, and if must you can require the policy to be followed for the warranty to be enforced.

IP Network Technology Selling Guide for the Security Professional

To the Security Integrator, Dealer or installer looking to sell IP video security systems, but also thinking to themselves, “Where is the best place to start?” Look no further, this article was written for you. The IP Network Technology Selling Guide for the Security Professional was written to provide a little insight on some best practices, when it comes to IP Network Technology and on the benefits of using it for your client’s next project.

IP Network video surveillance has come leaps and bounds and technology advances really overcome many sales objections that IP video use to have. Some of these concerns included lack of reliability, cost, latency, security concerns and bandwidth usage. These concerns have pretty much been eliminated in recent years, making IP network technology an adaptable, reliable and expandable technology ideal for video security.

IP Network Video Security Systems come with great benefits and have exceeded in video resolutions going from 1080P HD and beyond all the way up to 4K ultra HD resolutions. IP Network systems also exceed in integration capabilities allowing for more advance technologies to be adopted such and video analytics and intelligent surveillance tools that are increasingly becoming more viable to small retailers and other markets.

In fact, what seems to be the biggest disadvantage compared to the RG-59 technology’s (Analog, CVI or TVI) is that the transmission distance is  up to 1500feet (500m) standard. Where for IP System installed on cat5, the transmission distance is about 328 feet (100m) standard, which is easily increased by the use of an extender, which will allow you can go up to 1000ft comfortably.

Nearly all large video surveillance jobs have moved to IP Network within the past few years due to the increased flexibility and stability of the technology. With many large infrastructures adopting IP network technology what does this mean for users that require a 16 camera installation or less and how can I better communicate the benefit of IP to them?

Well, the best way to sell any video security system is to first understand the customer’s security goals and expectations, and with the many integration options for IP it also make since to know your customers business goals.


Step 1: Understand your customers security goals and expectations

  • What does your client hope to gain from their system
  • What are your client’s expectations?
  • What are their business related goals?
  • What is their budget?

Step 2: Create a video security system that help solve their needs

  • How can your system help them now or in the future?
  • Will the system help achieve their goals while keeping installation cost reasonable?


Step 3: Examine the infrastructure:

  • Is there an existing system in place?
  • Do they have Cat5 or RG-59 analog cable in place?
  • Do they want to change out the entire infrastructure or utilize hybrid or Tribrid technology?

Step 4: Explain the value the System:

  • Help the customer understand the features, adaptability and the expandable technology so they understand the worth of the system.
  • Explain the remote monitoring features for the web browser
  • Explain the benefits of remote viewing from your Mobile device


Step 5: Explain how adaptable the system and the growth opportunities:

  • How can the customer add to the system?
  • Maybe down the line the customer wants to add in analytics
  • Maybe the customer will want to add cloud based applications.


When it comes to a client who has interests in gaining some additional advantages or features out of their video system, whether it is business intelligence like inventory control or customer traffic pattern monitoring, an IP Network System will keep your client open for future advancements. Where Analog, CVI or TVI technology do not necessarily have that opportunity.


Key sales tools to utilize:

  • Visual representation and comparison of IP resolutions.
  • 960H vs 1080p: HDCVI & HDTVI
  • 1080p and Higher Ultra HD: IP NETOWRK!!
  • Examples of Analytics or cloud based features
  • Examples Remote monitoring features

The Client on a Budget

When selling to a budget minded customer, the primary objective should always be to establish all the benefits VS the cost. This comes from completing step 1: and understanding your client’s goals and expectations. Based on the systems intended use the application will vary and general video observation does not require the same versatility as a system that has a need for analytics, license plate capture or facial recognition features.

The key is to educate the client both about the systems capabilities and features in comparison to what their budget will allow. A detailed analysis of the client’s needs and goals will allow for a more complete sale and also builds up you’re up credibility and trust within client eyes. Which may lead to future jobs or referrals from your client. Meeting budget constraints is not the key objective when the IP video system fails to fulfill the intended purpose.
