Secure Lock and Alarm offers a large selection of internet cameras also known as IP Cameras. They are very versatile and they allow you to connect to the internet via a broadband network and remotely view video from any web browser in the world. Once your system is set up you should be able to monitor your property from your smart phone or other hand held device. The 4 types of cameras; box, dome, PTZ, or bullet all come in an IP format. They come with software and need to be configured to a network in order to function. For professional grade IP cameras, Network Video Recorders are another option. IP Camera Systems used with NVR’s add robust features such as facial recognition and exceptional video quality. These systems can be designed to monitor up to 64 IP cameras.
