Wonders of IP Cameras

Wonders of IP Cameras

Did you ever ask yourself, what are IP cameras? And what is the thing so special about them? Ok�Ц read carefully each word of this cool article 🙂

IP is an acronym that stands for “Internet Protocol” and an IP Security System is an internet based security system, which uses a LAN network or the Internet as a crucial tool for surveillance. IP system delivers secure and real time images of an event; as well as, the flexibility to show both full motions and still images.

Check out the coolest 5 features of IP Cameras and Systems:

– Cost Effective:
IP Camera System can be cost effective. Firstly, it reduces the cost of cabling in large installation. Secondly, it reduces the network infrastructure by using the same network for both, the transportation of video and control of PTZ (reduce the amount of cables) not as the traditional CCTV which needs two separated cables. Finally, it reduces the space needed because video processes are done via computers without the need of bulked and expensive switches as CCTV systems.

Let me break the idea of PTZ cameras for you;  
Pan, Tilt Zoom (PTZ) Cameras, often referred to as dome cameras, are cameras that can be moved left to right, up and down and zoom in and out via a computer, DVR, or PTZ joystick. This type of surveillance camera is often found at retail stores and allow the operator to follow a person as they move about or to zoom in on someone’s face, a license plate, a cash register etc. some of them are indoor, outdoor, and internet protocol (IP) cameras, each dome camera provides full color surveillance images.

– Secure communication:
By using IP systems, you get the necessary authentication and encryption to make sure that your system is not exposed to hackers. And of course more secure image capture and transmission. On the contrary of the traditional CCTV system which doesn’t have the needed authentication and encryption, and without them, it would be much easier for hackers to get into your system and record everything.

– Real time Events:
IP Camera System records events in real time, and provide triggering alerts and warnings of in progress events in case a suspicious activity is detected such as: blocking, covering, spray-painting or redirection. It also provides an automatic analysis, which makes IP systems more productive means of surveillance and efficient monitoring of large systems.  But the traditional CCTV systems record events for viewing after the event has occurred. Now, what really distinguish IP camera from the traditional CCTV camera is: showing the number of people and objects, audio detection, and face and gender recognition. In a simpler words; IP Camera System records events in real time, and provide triggering alerts and warnings of in progress events in case a suspicious activity is detected such as: blocking, covering, spray-painting or redirection.

– Ease of view and switch:
IP camera system gives you the ability run a number of cameras on one surveillance network; and to view each on one screen. The available software enables one person to switch between cameras; some allow you to view scenes and videos over your mobile phone, which gives you the ability to manage it from any location.

– Perfect Image:
IP camera is the perfect choice regarding the clarity of images because of it’s highly and various resolutions, it is at least four times clearer more than the traditional CCTV system. IP system has higher image quality, full image details, progressive scan and more accurate and specific information. Simultaneous high resolution and low bandwidth streams allowing remote viewing of live video whilst recording crisp megapixel images.  It also has different aspect of rations. IP cameras have wider color spectrum than traditional CCTV; better color representation, full frame rate, and wide screen format.

IP Cameras have solved many problems and obstacle which the users have faced with the traditional CCTV cameras and systems�Ц..So, admit it, IP Cameras really are making wonders in the camera systems technology.
