Also called an Internet portal camera, an IP wireless camera is a digital security camera that sends and receives recorded video footage through an IP network.
They record video footage just like other cameras do, but the difference is that homeowners access the compressed files faster. Each camera has a processing chip that compresses the videos as the camera records them.
Many homeowners use these cameras for surveillance, and unlike analog CCTV cameras, they do not need local recording devices. All they need is a local network that connects to the same way that computers and phones do.
Wireless IP camera connects to Wi-Fi or any other wireless network, and homeowners need to enter the IP address in a browser to access the footage from the camera. To ensure that their clients have access to their cameras’ footage, CLF services provide them with static IP addresses.
That means that the IP does not change, unlike dynamic IP addresses. These types of wireless cameras are different from wired cameras that homeowners have to connect to the network using Ethernet cables.
The wireless cameras capture their videos in high-definition resolution, which can go as high as 16 megapixels. That can be four times better than the resolution offered by analog cameras.
The quality depends on the camera model the homeowner chooses. The higher the resolution, the larger the files will be.
One of the biggest advantages of having this type of camera is that the homeowner can view the files anywhere, anytime, through the internet, either on their phones, laptops, or tablets. They can also listen to the audio and control the cameras remotely via their gadgets.
Homeowners can also have the Brisbane security service providers install wireless IP cameras as temporary or permanent solutions, or they are easy to relocate whenever the homeowner wishes.
Homeowners can also choose between an outdoor or indoor camera that has both night and day functionalities. They can also zoom and pan the cameras either through operator command or remotely.
Some of the additional benefits that homeowners get by using these cameras over other types of cameras include:
Two-way audio- Homeowners can listen or speak to someone via the speaker on the camera. This makes them perfect to have them near the door, in case the homeowner does not recognize a person at their front porch.
Fewer cables and wires- This not only makes the cameras easy to install but also avoids the danger of people tripping over the wires and makes the area look neater.
