Types of IP Security cameras

  • Centralized vs. Decentralized IP camera:

Centralized IP cameras behave as the eyes of a central video recorder. These cameras are linked in a network to a central server which acts as a controller and also as a storage. These cameras function according to the specified direction allocated from the center. The central storage facility ensures the safety of the security footage even if the cameras get damaged or stolen.

Decentralized IP cameras record footages independently. They have in-built local storage devices such as SD-cards or thumb drive. There is very less chance of deletion of all the security footage at once.

  • Dome vs. Box IP cameras:

Dome and box-shaped IP cameras are differentiated by their shapes. Dome-shaped IP cameras as their name goes are dome in shape and can be well hidden. They have a 360º vision and does not require any protection.

Box-shaped IP cameras are enclosed in a box. They are easily visible and are at a fixed angle. Changing lenses is easier in Box IP cameras.

  • Day and Night IP cameras:

These type of IP camera provides 24×7 surveillance. They are used as regular IP cameras in the day and uses infrared light in the night to provide monochromatic images.

  • Fixed vs. PTZ IP cameras:

Fixed IP cameras as their name goes are fixed at a particular angle and direction. Being fixed at one position they are used to survey the same area even minutely. They also come with the feature of lenses which can be replaced or enhanced.

Pan-Tilt-Zoom or PTZ IP cameras can pan, tilt or zoom either automatically or manually. These cameras can survey in different directions or they can be used to monitor or zoom in on a particular object for close surveillance.

Guidelines For Buying IP Security Cameras

The following factors must be considered when a purchase is being made:

  • Types:

We have already mentioned the types of IP cameras above, which would help you choose the camera you wish to buy.

If you need IP cameras in an office, Centralised IP cameras are recommended.

Do you want to monitor the outdoor surroundings of your home while you are away, you may just try the Day and Night IP cameras.

For using only a one or a couple of IP cameras Decentralized cameras may be used.

Fixed cameras hold HD graphics and can do detailed surveillance on one object.

You can go for PTZ IP cameras if you want to do automatic surveillance of the surroundings.

  • Resolution:

Resolution plays a vital part while video recording. IP cameras normally suit VGA graphics but now Megapixel IP cameras are also becoming mainstream.  VGA based video produce square pixels which match the computer pixels. Megapixel IP cameras have finer detailing extending to HD graphics.

  • Infrared:

LEDs or Light Emitting Diodes are present in IP cameras which provide night vision. These LEDs produce infrared light at night or in the dark. The infrared vision is necessary if you want 24 hours of surveillance. Infrared light produces black and white videos which come in handy.

  • Motion Sensing and Alerting:

The flexibility for an IP camera is necessary if a wide range surveillance is required. Most IP cameras now can rotate 360º and have independent vision.

Traffic can be monitored by these cameras as they have inbuilt and accurate motion sensing. Zooming along with motion sensing is also provided. An alerting system is also present which sends SMS/emails if any suspicious ‘caught in the act’ is recorded.

  • Power:

Well, the obvious question that arises, what is the power source for the cameras to function. Few cameras use batteries whereas few needs to be plugged into a main source of electricity.

But above all, there is a power-over-ethernet, which allows transmitting power to the cameras simultaneously using the internet connection through the ethernet.

  • Storage:

After the recording has been done where does the footage go? That’s why there are multiple options present for storing.

Personal Computers(PC) or Laptops can be a reliable and a huge source to store recording footage. Multiple connections with IP cameras can be made and it can act as a central server operator.

SD Cards can be used in case the data stored is transported. SD cards are not so reliable as they might get stolen.

Cloud storage is the most reliable source for storing the video footage. Each camera being linked to a cloud account helps in operating the cameras or viewing live footage from any multimedia device.

  • Accessories:

At the end, there come few points for performance enhancement of IP cameras.

Remote control setup – You can use your Moblie or Tablet to operate the IP camera anytime, provided there is a Wifi connection available to both of the devices.

Speaker – It enables a two-way audio interaction. It is helpful if any message is to be delivered to a mass of people.

Mounting the IP camera is vital. Before setting up one must have the idea how much range the camera has and which angle it needs to cover.( Universal Travel Adapters for Tech savvy)
