IP Camera Remote Surveillance
View live video from your IP cameras on-demand using a PC, Mac, iPhone etc. from work, whilst on holiday or from anywhere. Also, inbuilt motion detectors and other sensors can be set automatically to trigger recordings and alert you, by email or SMS.
In recent years CCTV technology has overlapped with IT technology to provide the ability to broadcast live video images over the Internet to either a computer or mobile device.
Modern wireless IP Cameras and attached recording devices are not only capable of streaming live images over the Internet they are capable of sending early warning messages to your mobile phone using either SMS or email.
Internet protocol cameras, or IP cameras, are a type of digital video camera commonly used for surveillance, and which unlike analogue CCTV (closed circuit television) cameras can send and receive information via computer networks and the Internet.
IP cameras come in indoor and outdoor versions that are designed to suit most budgets and needs, whether you are keeping an eye on your home, your business or watching over loved ones.
Most IP cameras can be used stand alone, so you can view and control remotely the way you want, with local recording software included. They can also be used to provide an easy way to remotely view live video, record motion detect, record scheduled events and get email or SMS alerts.
Typical uses of IP Cameras
Wireless IP cameras are effectively digital CCTV cameras and can have many uses both serious and fun. They can provide a low cost solution to a security problem or they can give you confidence and comfort about loved ones when you are away. A few typical examples of how they can be used are as follows:
- Check in on the baby and sitter
- Looking in on elderly relatives
- See how pets behave when you’re not there
- Keep an eye on your home
- View external buildings, such as garages
- Watch your business when you’re away
- Have fun with nature watching at home
- Give yourself security and peace of mind
IP Cameras Installation
IP cameras are actually relatively simple and straightforward to install in (or indeed outside) your home or business. For most people with an interest in IT and computers, setting up and using your own ip cameras can be a fun project. However, there can be problems, with things like your broadband router, when it comes to setting up your camera to be accessed remotely over the Internet. This can sometimes end up being a time consuming headache. Also, not everybody is confident handling this type of work and would prefer to leave it to an expert, to get the job done more quickly and efficiently.
