In recent years, the popularity of the home security camera has surged. This is in no part down to the many different ways of storing their live feed. One of such is through a local area network, which has encouraged the use of IP CCTV cameras. Technology has advanced to a degree where security systems no longer need to be analogue and can be easily accessed through a network. This makes security cameras easier to use than ever, so you can view a live feed through the internet, instead of a manual SD card.
The clearest picture
Since their introduction in the 1990s, the improvement in IP security cameras has been vast.

Are IP security cameras the same as CCTV?
IP security cameras are slowly eclipsing the standard CCTV cameras, and it is easy to see why. They give the user more access to view their footage in a way that suits them, which is why IP cameras are becoming more popular in domestic environments, whilst CCTV cameras are still commonplace in commercial facilities such as office blocks and shops.
Wireless IP cameras are much more easily accessible than their fixed CCTV counterparts and are a much cheaper option long term. Come and take a look at our selection on site now!
What does IP stand for in IP security cameras?
Instead of the Closed Circuit Television initialism that is given to CCTV, IP stands for Internet Protocol. As the name suggests, this is a new way of accessing your security device through an internet browser, instead of transmitting the system to an area of set monitors.
Technology is forever improving, and this is no different in the world of home security systems. Whether you are in need of an indoor security camera or an outdoor IP camera, now is a better time than ever to take a look at everything they have to offer, and how they can be a great fit inside (or outside!) your home.
How does an IP camera work?
Rather than transmitting the video recording through a DVR (digital video recorder), it does this through WiFi. This kind of recording does not compromise on quality either, which is why it is proving more and more popular year on year. The ability to transfer moving images to the network is built within the system themselves.
Long gone are the days of large scale CCTV cameras that are virtually unmissable. Now the cameras that are provided by Time2 are small on size, but large on quality and can record footage to a better standard than ever before.
