So what makes IP Cameras /Network Cameras superior to regular coax analog cameras?
IP Cameras / Network Cameras are devices that use an Internet Protocol (IP) with a built in web server to transmit audio and video over a Fast Ethernet medium, such a Cat5 or Cat6 cable. IP Surveillance Systems eliminate the use of older and outdated Analog technologies that run on coaxial cable. IP Cameras offer greater functionality with Megapixel HD resolutions, H.264 compression and intelligent Video Analytics support. One of the best features many IP Cameras offer is Power Over Ethernet (PoE). PoE allows power to be sent over the same cat5 cable eliminating additional power cabling and devices. Since IP/Network cameras reside on a computer based network, remote management becomes streamlined. Similar to a computer, an IP Camera can accept updates and upgrades to firmware over the network via a web browser. With your IP Camera log in, you will have instant access to your entire Surveillance System and all of your Network cameras locally, remotely, or even from your iPhone, thus allowing you to view your home or business from anywhere with an internet connection.
