IP (internet protocol) Cameras are the cream of the crop in the surveillance system world. They offer the best quality images possible, with the highest resolution available and the greatest depth of field. Available in bullet, wedge, dome, box, and PTZ (point/tilt/zoom) models, there is sure to be a camera that fits your specific needs, whether indoor, outdoor, day or night. The unmatched image quality does come at a price, however, and not just a financial one. IP cameras are more complex to install and operate, requiring new cabling and knowledge of bandwidth management, among other things.
