10 top facts about IP Cameras

  • IP cameras also known as Internet Protocol or network cameras are all digital cameras that can send signals over cable to be stored in the network.
  • IP Cameras  work over twisted-pair, coax cable, and with wireless connections.
  • IP cameras can send digital video 100 metres over twisted-pair Ethernet cable and unlimited distances over IP networks. Because the images are digital, they maintain 100% of their clarity over long distances and when the signal is converted between different formats.
  • IP cameras offer network intelligence and remote manageability. They can stream images, and different parts of images, to different recipients simultaneously. They can perform additional tasks such as sending a message when they detect motion.
  • IP cameras can accept power, video, audio, PTZ control, and control signals over a single cable.
  • IP systems have built-in reliability due to the data encryption and compression. They are as reliable as the network is, although backup systems can be put in place to minimise outages.
  • IP security cameras make data difficult to intercept. They encrypt and compress data before transporting it over the Internet to your server and they have VPN support.
  • IP cameras offer more expandability and scalability than analogue cameras because their cabling requirements are less complex. But it is still possible to leverage your existing cabling infrastructure when migrating to IP cameras with the use of converters and extenders.
  • IP camera systems are more expensive because the cost of the cameras is higher than for analogue cameras.
  • IP cameras offer resolutions that can range from 2 megapixels to 20 megapixels.
