What is IP CCTV?

IP based cameras are the future. They work by turning images and audio into data then transmitting this data over a network or Internet connection. The ultimate benefit of this over analogue CCTV systems is greater flexibility, better performance and easier installation.

Whilst IP CCTV has been available for around 10 years, it is only in the last few years that the technology has matured, leading to the developments in Megapixel IP. Read below for a summary on the benefits of using IP based systems over traditional analogue systems.

How IP Cameras work

  • The camera turns video & audio into data
  • The camera connects to your Network or direct your Router and transmits this data onto the network
  • This data can then be viewed as high quality images, and audio on any authorised PC, Mac or Mobile Phone; on the local network, or over the internet
Single Camera CCTV
  • Each camera turns video & audio into data
  • The cameras connect to your Network or direct your Router and transmits this data onto the network
  • This data can then be viewed as high quality images, and audio on any authorised PC, Mac or Mobile Phone; on the local network, or over the internet
Multiple Camera CCTV
  • In the example below each site has 2 IP cameras
  • At site 1 the cameras are connected to the local network and recorded on a Laptop running recording software
  • The cameras are also connected to the Internet via the router
  • At site 2 the cameras are connected to the Internet, no local recording or viewing is taking place
  • At Head Office the cameras are being recorded and viewed live on a Laptop running recording software
  • The cameras can also be viewed from an iPhone (over 3G) by the Operations Director when he is out of the office
