Internet protocol (IP) video cameras are a popular alternative to analog cameras because they use a local area network (LAN) to send and receive footage to an internet or video server. Data is stored such that nothing is lost if the system is tampered with or damaged.
IP video systems are incredibly beneficial in commercial settings. The footage can be used to monitor employees and oversee quality control during daily business operations. They are helpful for loss prevention and protection as well. In case of a break-in, vandalism, or any other illegal activity, referring to the video footage may assist the authorities in identifying the perpetrator. Video cameras also provide peace of mind in the event of on-site injuries. They provide a clear picture of an incident and avoiding instances of false injury claims.
Below we’ll look at the elements of an IP video network and see how they work together.
