What is IP CCTV and should I upgrade?

Unlike analog closed-circuit television cameras IP CCTV Camera systems require no local recording device, but only a local area network.

The IP camera connects to a network in exactly the same way as any other standard network device such as a laptop, tablet or printer.


Setting up an IP Camera is relatively simple, requiring nothing more than a network connection and a little patience to site and configure the camera. The majority of IP Cameras on the market can be configured to provide live viewing, continuous recording, operate at a scheduled time or be triggered by a specific event.
