How do IP cameras work?
What is it?
IP is short for Internet Protocol. When video is captured, it is send to the viewing device via a digital signal rather than a video/audio signal with dependency on voltage. The mechanism of capturing images is similar, but the big difference is the image can be compressed and viewed on any device anywhere on the same network. But, don’t worry, in order to use IP, you don’t have to be a boffin.
Yes, but what is IP?
IP is a protocol. This is a set of rules on how the data is moved across the network and how it is viewed. Apparently, there are over 8,000 protocols out there. IP is a principle communications protocol. It allows data to be split up and send to the right destination and back again easily and efficiently. It is this flexibility of communication makes image transfer very easy.
Why IP cameras?
IP cameras were first brought to light in 1996 by Axis with their Neteye 2000. Since then, the technology has improved year on year as people and the cost of production has reduced. IP cameras use thetechnology of packet switching. This is where the data is broken up into chunks or packets and travel to the destination independently and the re-glued together at the other end. This means, that a constant open circuit or signal does not have to be open or suffer loss. IP cameras are more successful as they offer higher resolution, more flexibility for recording and viewing anywhere in the world.
Like your home address, every device and computer connected to a network will have a unique number or IP address. Usually this is a set block of four numbers ie 192.168.1.64. When you put a memorable web address into your favourite search engine, the web address is linked to an IP address. The domain name is easier to remember than a set of numbers. IP cameras use this structure connect and transmit the data from the camera to the viewer.

FAQ – IP cameras
What is IP stand for?
IP stands for Internet Protocol. Its a fancy name for digital camera.
Why choose IP technology?
IP or analogue is the trade off between price, quality and flexibility. Here are the differences:
IP cameras pluses
Flexible to view
Easier to stream
IP camera minuses
Cost a little more
Some systems may need technical assistance
Analogue camera pluses
Prices can be lower
Analogue camera minuses
Separate power cable needed
Harder to view on platforms
Do I need the internet for IP cameras to work?
No you don’t need the internet. You can just plug your camera into a computer. However, it you want the camera to be view-able on all devices then you need to connect your camera to a router. You only need internet access if you are wanting to view the camera outside your home.
I am non technical. Can I fit an IP camera myself?
Yes, just follow the instructions that come with the system. We pre-configure everything so you can find the camera easily. If you are stuck you can always ask someone you know that has computer knowledge to help you.
How do I view the IP camera on my phone, tablet etc?
Yes, connect your camera to the router. If your phone, tablet etc is connected to the same router you should be able to view the camera. All you do is download the free app.
How is the camera powered?
The camera is powered by either:
- Power supply (POE injector). This pushes the power down the one cable and then the data back to the router
- From a recorder (NVR – Network Video Recorder) The camera is powered from the recorder down the cable and the data is sent back down the same cable to the recorder
How do I see the camera on my device
Once you have connected your camera to a router. You can install an app and search for the camera or if you are viewing on a computer, you can find the camera and then view it.
Wired or wireless IP cameras?
We always recommend going for wired as it can be easier to power and connect. If you want to go wireless, there are a number of options.
- WIFI over mains – As you already have mains wiring, data can be transmitted safely over this. All you do is plug the camera into a special mains adapter/plug. The signal then gets sent across your mains wiring in your house to wherever your router is. You then plug in another adapter and connect this to your router.
- WIFI – We supply a WIFI adapter that plugs into your mains and connects, boosts your existing WIFI.
Beware of camera with built in WIFI as they can have either poor WIFI or hard to connect. The options above give you the best of all worlds.
