Advantages of an IP Camera as A Surveillance Camera
IP camera, in other words, known as internet protocol camera is a digital video camera which is
commonly used for monitoring. The cameras are capable of sending and receiving data via the
web or a computer network, unlike the analog closed circuit television which cannot perform this
Image and Resolution Quality
Resolution and picture quality are some of the key factors to consider when selecting IP camera
for security reasons. The primary functions the cameras is to identify an event or a person. Thus,
image quality is very essential. When a recorded video is compressed, the image quality suffers,
and consequently, storage efficiency rises. The right image quality should be configured within
the camera according to the requirements of the work area where the camera is employed. The
camera gives high image resolution and provides HDTV image quality at 30 frames each second
and multi-megapixel resolutions.
Irrelevant parts of the recorded footage can be clipped out of the camera. This feature allows the
storage consumption to decrease considerably by a huge percentage. Modern cameras enable
onboard recording up to 32 GB. In cases of network failure, cameras continue recording until
network reconnection occurs. Instant updates of the records can be sent from the camera to the
smartphone or computer. The cameras are making a fast progression in the surveillance market.
Users can view any footage in very high detail using the modern IP video technology.
Audio and Video Networking
In these cameras, there is a two-way audio via a network cable. The person watching the video
can communicate with the individuals in the video. For instance, a station employee can speak to
the customers via IP cameras. The cameras are flexible as they can be moved around. Data in
the cameras can be securely transmitted using authentication and encryption methods like TKIP,
AES, WPA, WEP. A misconception taken by many is that, if the internet goes down, the camera
also goes down. The truth is that the internet connection is not a concern for recording. Mostly
the videos are recorded to a local storage device, and the internet is used for remote viewing of
the videos stored online. The videos can be viewed from any smartphone, computer, and other
These cameras can function on a wireless network. In the initial stages, a router is necessary for
use, but once the camera is installed, it can be used on a wireless network. These cameras are
used by defense forces, especially for navigation purposes. The modern cameras can function
without any additional power supply. This is attainable by using power over ethernet which gives
power via the Ethernet cable. The cameras come with advanced motion sensor controls and
extremely low light functionality.
An IP camera is such a powerful device which can transmit digital video signals over the Internet
network and allow for quick remote access, digital storage, and high definition images. It comes
with numerous advantages compared to the traditional cameras. These cameras are the next big
thing in the next generation of video surveillance.
