IP (Internet Protocol) camera DVR’s (Digital Video Recorders), also known as Network Video Recorders or NVRs are becoming more popular everyday. These devices combine the high quality digital video security system with the Internet to yield a powerful networking system that has no limitation in distance, provided there is a broad band Internet connection. This even includes 3G and 4G smartphones.
A typical non-IP camera DVR system has one to many cameras, a DVR, and usually at least one monitor. The camera is responsible for “capturing” the video image while the DVR stores the data that the camera sends it or makes it readily available to the monitor for live viewing.
