What is IP CCTV? IP camera is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance, and which, unlike analog closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet.
IP CCTV has been available for around ten years, however until fairly recently the price of IP products was extremely high, so much so it was not a feasible option in most cases. With the improvements in technology and introduction of High Definition IP products, along with the decrease in cost, they are now a very good option.
