What is an IP camera?
Nowadays, almost all cameras are so-called IP cameras. IP stands for Internet Protocol, which means that the camera can communicate through an IP network. In most cases, the camera is equipped with a microphone and in some cases also a loudspeaker, allowing remote communication with, for example, a visitor.
What should I look out for when purchasing an IP camera?
Determine beforehand for what purpose you want to buy a security camera. For example, consider the angle of view and the distance to the objects you want to monitor.
The advantages of an IP camera
Instead of the slow, old analogue security camera, an IP camera is easy to connect (often wirelessly) to a network. This makes it easy to view and manage the images from your computer. Other advantages of an IP camera are mostly its possibilities. For example, immediate storage of images to a (micro) SD card, immediate e-mail notifications, or live-streaming on your smartphone or tablet.
