Maintenance - IP vs Analog

An IP camera is a network appliance and requires continuous “skilled” management. Estimates for the cost of maintaining a network appliance (one IP address) range from $100 to $400 per year.

Analog cameras are unmanaged devices. No IP address to manage, no worries about programming, software, IT skills, etc. It either works or it doesn’t. Once installed, they require no “skilled” maintenance, if any.
