WHAT’S THE MEANING?
An IP camera (Internet Protocol Camera), is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance which can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet. The term IP camera or netcam is usually applied only to those used for surveillance that can be directly accessed over a network connection.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the first centralized IP camera was developed in 1996? Such was the Neteye 2000 which was developed by Axis Communications, a Swedish network camera manufacturer. This task was completed under the team of Martin Gren and Carl-Axel Alm. Since then, huge developments have been made to advance the surveillance technology further. Though initially used to monitor the sea for oil spills, Axis took a step further. In 1998, they allowed the use of the IP camera to be integrated into existing analog CCTV systems, which a lot of customers still prefer to use at that time.
However, as technology has further developed, IP cameras have been more and more in demand to address security issues globally. This is also due to the increasing necessity of having everything easily-accessible. Since IP cameras connect to the internet and their feeds can be accessed from across the globe, it is not surprising that homeowners and business owners prefer to install such IP cameras. Thanks to smart devices and security camera software, the issue of security is now a relatively easy one to address.
