Traditional CCTV systems use analogue links to connect cameras to a central control station. An IP CCTV system has a digital interface that links cameras and the central control station together on an IP Network. This system can be easily integrated with any IP Network allowing easy access to video data from networked computers and even from remotely located work-stations via the internet.

IP-based video surveillance uses the latest wireless technology and network video monitoring solutions, revolutionising the way organisations, companies and the public sector protect their property, personnel and proprietary assets. Compared to analogue or hybrid systems, IP-based solutions provide crucial advantages, including:

  • Real-time situational awareness and response

  • Remote video monitoring and accessibility

  • Faster, lower cost deployment

  • Leverage the existing networks

  • Maximise the benefits of smart cameras and software

  • Optimized ROI

  • Future-proofing

  • Digital image encryption for security purposes

Types of IP CCTV cameras


Fixed and cube IP cameras are a good choice for monitoring a very specific area. The direction these cameras are pointing is typically very clearly visible, and once the camera’s location is set, it will stay in that position. Fixed cameras are also available in dome models, where a fixed camera is installed inside a dome. This set up is typically small and discreet, providing unobtrusive surveillance.


With day/night cameras, continuous 24-hour surveillance is possible. These IP cameras can produce images in lowlight and even in complete darkness using near infrared (IR) light, which is undetectable to the human eye. Some day/night IP camera models have built-in IR illuminators that provide illumination to enhance the camera’s night video capabilities. During the day the cameras produce full colour images; at night the cameras’ images are in black and white


Wireless cameras are one of the most flexible varieties of IP cameras. The cameras connect to a network without using wires, which gives you the freedom to place cameras wherever security is needed. Any camera can be made wireless with the addition of an external antenna.

Indoor Cameras

Indoor cameras are ideally suited for use in residential, office, and retail environments. Indoor cameras are available in a large range of models including ones with vandal-resistant housing, day/night functionality, PTZ, tamper detection and more.

Outdoor Cameras

Outdoor cameras are specially designed to withstand the rigors of outdoor use. The cameras are typically encased in IP66 or IP67-rated weatherproof housing that protects against wind, moisture, dust, and other hazards. Many outdoor IP cameras are also equipped with day/night functionality for around the clock security.


With PTZ IP cameras, camera operators have a larger range of controls available to monitor wider areas and zero in on specific individuals, objects or activities. PTZ cameras allow users to pan, tilt, and zoom with either manual or automatic controls.
