Many of us are looking to protect our business and homes and looking for a cost effective solution to protect our property while we are gone, by alerting us when someone enters an area they shouldn’t, to capture images of events that take place while we are away, to give us a view of what is going on when we can’t be there, to keep an eye on pets, children, the elderly.
Many of us may be familiar with traditional CCTV surveillence that attached to a VCR or DVR. Many of the modern DVR’s do allow you to do what I mentioned above, but require expensive wiring, costs too much, uses too much electricity and doesn’t allow for HD quality images we have grown acustomed to on our televisions, computers, and even on our cell phones.
IP cameras are basically a camera similarl to a CCTV camera, but it’s also has a built in computer with a webserver that allows us to get what we want in a small, affordable package. Prices range from as little as $80 to thousands of dollars depending on resolution, features, and quality. Some can store events to internal SD cards, some require that the images be sent elswhere.
What this blog is about is to help you select a camera based on my reviews, look at sample images taken by these cameras, look at what features these cameras have from a practical point of view and learn how to effectively deploy these cameras in every day use.
