Network cameras are a new generation of cameras that combine traditional cameras and network technology. The network camera can transmit the image to the other side of the earth through the network, and the remote viewer does not need to use any professional software, as long as the standard web browser can monitor the image. Regarding the definition of a network camera, there are currently two popular sayings: first, a network camera is a camera directly connected to the network; second, it is a camera that uses the network to transmit images.
The network camera system can be easily linked to other security equipment, such as alarms for humidity, temperature, smoke, intrusion, etc.. At the same time, the high quality CCTV system can be linked to action equipment such as lights, siren, locks, which makes it convenient to form a set of powerful security system. It is believed that network cameras will have a dominant position on the basis of CCTV in the near future.
The network camera system, designed by CCTV surveillance system suppliers has flexible picture settings, and the size, resolution and monitoring location of the picture can be set according to different applications and user preferences to achieve the purpose of multi-point network control. Multiple users can access a certain network camera at the same time. When an alarm is triggered, it can automatically store the active images in a certain period of time before and after the alarm, which has many functions.
Based on global industry standards, network cameras can be seamlessly connected with various types of Ethernet devices. In a sense, a network camera is a standard network device. Once it is a network device, in today's single global network, convenient use and low price will be the characteristics of network cameras.
