A new generation of home & business security
These new generation cameras can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet using one data cable. There are two kinds of IP cameras:
- Centralised IP cameras, which require a central Network Video Recorder (NVR) to handle the recording, video and alarm management.
- Decentralised IP cameras, these cameras have recording functionality built-in and can record directly to digital storage media, such as flash drives, hard disks or network attached storage (NAS). This type of camera does not require a central Network Video Recorder. Eg. Mobotix
Advantages with using IP
- Higher image resolution. IP cameras can provide multi-megapixel resolution and HD image quality (links of eg.)
- Flexibility. IP cameras can be moved around anywhere on an IP network.
- Remote access live video from selected cameras can be viewed from any computer, anywhere, anytime including your iOS or Android based smartphone.
- Cost advantage for larger commercial systems.
- PoE – Power over Ethernet. IP cameras have the ability to operate without an additional power supply. They can work with the PoE- protocol which gives power via the Ethernet-cable.
- Two-way audio via a single network cable allows users to communicate with what they are seeing
- IP surveillance is a rapidly growing security industry and is a highly recommended for any new commercial installation. Please check out the future of video monitoring http://www.remoteguard.com.au
