Perhaps you are wondering what this camera is all about. First of all the IP in full is Internet Protocol. This camera is a video camera used for surveillance, but it is not same to closed-circuit television cameras. This camera can deliver and receive data through the internet or a computer network which enables you to access it away from home through an IP address. The first IP camera was released in 1996 by a company known as Axis Communications. This first Internet Protocol camera was only giving out a snapshot image when accessed because it wasn’t able to stream real-time motion video. It was not able to stream because of enormous bandwidth requirements unlike now when there is better access to bandwidth.
Why should I have it?
