What is the IP Rating for Weatherproof Security Cameras?

With all the different letters and numbers Security Surveillance Camera terminology can be confusing at first glance.  One area that is often confused has to do with the IP Rating and IP Network Camera.  The IP in IP Network Camera stands for Internet Protocol.  A network or IP (Internet protocol) camera, is a form of digitally enhanced video camera that is generally employed for security surveillance.  An IP Network Camera varies considerably from its close counterpart the analog version, CCTV (closed circuit television) cameras.  An IP Network Camera can receive and send visual footage (and all related data) via a computer network and or over the the Internet.  Weatherproof Security Cameras also have an IP Rating that is associated with their ability to withstand the rigors of any particular environment.

An IP (Ingress Protection) ratings for any type of electronic device that runs off of electric or battery power is clearly defined by international standards specifically stated in by UL & EN 60529 (British BS EN 60529:1992, European IEC 60509:1989) codes. To not overly confuse you it basically defines the levels of sealing and effectiveness that any particular electronic enclosures has against intrusion from any type of foreign bodies (particles, dust, dirt, etc) and especially moisture.  Essentially an IP rating will determine how well your Weatherproof Security Cameras will stand against the elements.
