In this report, we aggregate and present numerous statistics about how surveillance is being used in the real world. Recently, we conducted an in depth survey of 100 integrators around the world, asking them a variety of detailed questions.
We learned a lot and our PRO members had very positive feedback to the program. Next month, we are starting a third series asking a new round of questions. Before we go there, this report catches up on the questions and statistics we have generated in the last few months.
Let's start with an interesting statistic:
The market is moving to megapixel but how much megapixel is being used compared to SD? We asked 100 integrators, of all the IP cameras that they recently deployed, what percentage of them were megapixel. The histogram below breaks down their answers:
Two interesting elements stand out:
The 'u' shape of the curve: Integrators are divided on megapixel use, with most either using all megapixel or hardly none at all. This is the opposite of a 'normal' curve one might expect where there is a consensus of a 'right' amount in the middle.
Majority Megapixel: Despite the abnormal curve, the average integrator in the survey deploys megapixel for more than 60% of their overall IP cameras, showing how mainstream megapixel has now become.
For more details on this topic, see our SD vs Megapixel statistics review.
The following statistics are aggregated in this directory:
This Spring, we will do a new round of statistics and will expand our surveys to end users. Watch for it in late April.
