Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, most IP cameras and NVRs come with software you can use to view live and recorded videos on a local computer. You can also access your camera system from anywhere in the world using a mobile app or a web browser.
IP Surveillance cameras, also known as network cameras or megapixel cameras, are digital video cameras that transmit data over a computer network. Unlike analog CCTV cameras, IP cameras encode and compress digital video before sending it over the network.
Most IP surveillance cameras use the Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) or H.264 compression format. M-JPEG compresses individual frames, while H.264 compresses video streams over time. H.264 provides better compression than M-JPEG and is, therefore, more efficient in terms of bandwidth and storage requirements.
In addition to the cameras, you will need a network video recorder (NVR) or a computer with special software to store and manage the video footage. IP cameras also require a power over Ethernet (PoE) injector or switch to supply power through the Ethernet cable.
A network video recorder (NVR) is a unique computer designed to store and manage video footage from IP cameras. NVRs typically have more hard drive storage than a regular computer and can be configured to record video continuously or only when motion is detected.
NVRs come in various sizes, from small, stand-alone units to large, rack-mounted systems. They can also be purchased as part of a complete IP surveillance system from a security camera vendor.
A video capture card is a piece of computer hardware that enables a computer to process and store video footage from an analog or digital source. Video capture cards are used in various applications, including security surveillance, video editing, and live streaming.
A basic DSL or cable modem is usually sufficient for a small-scale IP surveillance system. For larger installations or systems with higher resolution cameras, you may need a fiber optic connection or a business-class broadband service.
The bandwidth you need depends on the number of cameras, the cameras' resolution, the frame rate, and the compression format.
IP surveillance cameras connect to the network using an Ethernet cable or a wireless connection. Wireless IP cameras are convenient because they can be installed anywhere without running cables. Still, they are more expensive than wired cameras and may have a shorter range and poorer performance.
Ethernet is the best choice for most small-scale installations because it is more reliable and accessible to troubleshoot than wireless. A wireless system may be the best option if you need to install cameras in a large area or where wiring may be complex.
