Remote security cameras are typically compatible with a wide range of web browsers. It is worth noting that specific web browser support varies by manufacturer.
IP ready access remote security cameras can be connected to the internet using a standard Cat-5 Ethernet cable (the kind that is used to connect your personal computer to the modem or router). Once the camera is powered up and connected to the internet, the camera can be remotely monitored and controlled from just about anywhere in the world there is internet access. Depending on the manufacturer this can be done using any internet browser such as Internet Explorer or by using the manufacturers’ provided proprietary software.
Today, the most popular method of obtaining access remote security cameras is by using IP or Internet Protocol ready digital video cameras. IP cameras are a little powerhouse of electronic circuitry. Not only do they contain all the necessary electronic components for the digital video camera and any optional features (video sensor chip, pan-tilt-zoom or PTZ gears and motors, motion detector switches, etc.) but they also contain the circuitry to house their own internet server and programming to make them readily accessible for use on the internet.
Customers often ask how to access a live view of their remote security cameras when they're away from their home or business. After all, people lead busy lives, come in and out of work, go on vacations, and run errands so investing in a remote video surveillance system is crucial to the well-being and safety of your home or business. Thus, much of the time you're not actually able to be onsite where your cameras are installed.
