Let's answer some common questions about IP cameras and see if this security measure is right for your home.
Home security has traditionally been the domain of analog CCTV, with its taped video and complicated wiring systems.
Like any security systems, IP cameras range from starter models to more professional setups with extensive features.
A challenge of home security is knowing when to watch your video feed at the right time.
Wired cameras are hard wired to the security system, meaning you need to physically string power and data cables from a central hub or recording device to each individual camera.
Wireless security cameras transmit the video signal via Wi Fi, offering a live stream and remote access from your mobile device or computer.
Remember that wireless cameras send the video signal wirelessly, but still require a power outlet.
For monitoring the inside of your home, you'll need an indoor camera.
