IP cameras, also known as network cameras, are an important component of modern security systems. They enable real-time monitoring of rooms and outdoor areas and offer features such as motion detection, facial recognition and automated alarms to quickly detect and respond to suspicious activity. IP surveillance systems allow centralised monitoring from multiple locations, which is particularly useful for businesses and public institutions. Integrating IP cameras into existing networks also allows for easy management and remote access to live video and recordings. Modern IP cameras also offer high image resolution and enhanced night vision capabilities. Security systems with IP cameras are an effective way to improve the security of businesses, public facilities and private homes and minimise the risks of burglary, theft or vandalism. Contact us to learn more about IP cameras and IP surveillance systems and how we can help you meet your security needs. We offer a comprehensive range of IP-Surveillance products, such as network cameras, video servers, camera housings, network video recorders and accessories from various manufacturers, such as VIVOTEK, MOBOTIX, D-LINK, TRENDNET or I-PRO.

Interesting facts from the area of IP cameras & accessories

Advantages of digital video surveillance

IP cameras - synonymous with network cameras or WLAN cameras - send the recorded images via video stream to an IP network. These images can be easily received and viewed anywhere in the world on a PC/laptop, smartphone or tablet. Watching your baby with one click, documenting break-ins or checking if the cooker top is turned off while on holiday - IP cameras make it possible.

Network cameras are more than just webcams that need to be permanently connected to a PC via USB. Network cameras are stand-alone devices that, like any other network device, benefit from the advantages of a networked structure: you can access these cameras from anywhere you have access to your network, and especially with state-of-the-art devices such as smartphones or tablet PCs.

Image data is sent directly from the camera, and the image data streams can be very easily archived on modern storage devices such as hard disks, network storage or even directly on the camera memory card. Existing security mechanisms in networks, such as user accounts and user rights, grant or deny access to certain persons or accounts very easily and quickly.

If user-friendly video management software is also used, viewing and searching stored footage is simplified even further: the time period can be selected very quickly and a lot of time is saved through intelligent search functions, such as searching for a disappeared object (before/after comparison) or for movements in a certain area (by setting virtual fences and borders). The latest models can already calculate this on the camera and only pass on this "meta data" together with image information to the management system. This relieves the central system and allows it to process information almost in real time.

If a user (e.g. security service provider) is alerted promptly by email, he or she immediately receives important information ("In area XY, alarm line 1 has been exceeded..."), an alarm image as an attachment and, optimally, can access the camera directly via the Internet. The situation can thus be assessed immediately and costly false alarms and deployments can be avoided. By using video servers, analogue cameras can be retrofitted with the intelligence of a network camera - afterwards, the integration and the range of functions is identical to a network camera. Special cameras, such as board cameras, camouflaged cameras or medical cameras, can also be easily integrated into the network world.
