Cloud or Web Access

IP in IP camera stands for - Internet Protocol. Thats it. What does that mean exactly? It basically means the internet is the standard method used for this device. System functionality comes solely from the internet service you connect it to. This service is also known as your LAN(Local Area Network) connection. Now this does not mean there has to be a wire someplace. Well a power plug is typical for powering the camera. After that its a wireless communication to your router. Meaning placement can be above a cabinet, under a cabinet, beside books on a shelf, anywhere good viewing angle can be achived. Speed of transmission depends on your home internet speed and power. Higher resolutions demand higher data transfer, so a more substantial internet rate is perferred but not a necessity. Who decides how an IP camera talks to computers and sever clouds? ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) sets the regulations for protocols concerning IP cameras and network connected devices.

Now the magic will become clear how this works for viewing anywhere in the world. What an IP camera actually does is it assigns itself a web address. Not too unlike a server used to contain many web address and web site data. Your camera will have an address findable in any URL bar of most browsers(There are always a few odd ones). Now when the HD network camera is up and running, you can access with your phone, a computer, tablet, by the time you read this maybe even you fridge can get on to web pages. Please comment if this is true. Anyway, so with a few top end models offering 2-way audio, its a full blown webcam at this point. Generally IP cameras are in the security camera genre.

IP Camera Resolution

Top end of the resolution scale is of course the 1080 HD clarity. Or at least it used to be. Now 4K UHD has arrived and it will expand our capabilites like no other. Many cameras achive this mark. However, keeping in a budget, lower resolutions can be found. Also tilt or zoom features will add to the overlying cost of the product you chose.

PTZ and More Features

PTZ...well what's that? PTZ means - Point, Tilt, and Zoom. Yes, many Network cameras can move about giving a real look around the enviroment. There are some protocols or languages that decide what digital words are used for PTZ and how DVR's use this information. The two types are PELCO-D,and PELCO-P'. Zooming is on average a 8x-10x multiple. Not bad for these little devices. IR gives accurate night sight in even the biggest of rooms. IR does not illuminate at frequncies the human eye can see, but the camera can. It shines bright on everything in front view and natural darkness still remains. One interesting feature a couple cameras provide is a remote control. Not only can you drive it with your phone app, a remote for home use is included. View our Inventory for More...
