Internet Connection Types for IP Security Cameras


 
Electronics,Science & Technology
From plug and play cameras to Wi-Fi connected hidden cameras, the market is flooded with a huge variety of surveillance devices. And, the number of connection types is as vast as the number of security cameras. From simple DIY (do it yourself) setups to complex industrial grade professional installations, different cameras need a different setup technique and a different type of internet connection.

For every internet connection, there is an IP address assigned to that particular networked device. This IP address is like the postal address where everything is delivered to you. Here, we are talking about delivering the data to a specific IP address. These addresses are assigned by the network service provider. For IP cameras, there are two types of network addresses, viz. dynamic and static. In this article, we will look at how and where these connections are used.

Dynamic IP Address

If it were the case that every device on the internet has to be assigned one dedicated IP address, then there would have been a need for astronomical amounts of IP addresses. This is obviously not possible.

Here, dynamic IP address comes into play. Dynamic address, as the name suggests, changes constantly with each device. It is not given to a particular device for its entire lifespan.

Suppose a dynamic address is assigned to one of your devices say a laptop. Now, if this laptop is rebooted or used for a long time, its IP address will change. Such network addresses are termed as ‘dynamic’ and are formed & assigned by DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol).

The assigned IP address is in the form of eight numbers, which is separated by three periods. This is what it looks like: 1.775.45.9 Using dynamic network address is an easy, flexible and a cost-efficient option. There is no need of a manual setup or much network administration. Also, the setup is simple with minimal maintenance cost.

Along with so many advantages come along some disadvantages too. First, there is not much scope for customization. And second, the uploading and downloading speeds are slower, which happens basically because of low-bandwidth availability.

Static IP Address

Conversely, a static IP address is assigned for longer time periods. This type of network address is mainly used in commercial environments. All the devices (such as desktops) are assigned addresses through a manual setup.

Static IP address offers some great features like Voice over internet protocol (VOIP), performance monitoring, over-the-air network updates, and more.

A stable connection and manual setup help in better customization and hence, improved security. To add, professional-grade firewalls and fast uploading/downloading speeds are made possible with this type of network address only.

The static addresses are an expensive option because a set of IP addresses is taken out of the available pool of addresses that would remain dedicated to specific gadgets only. However, the cost is compensated with increased network stability. And in many business environments, a steady network connection is appreciable without much fuss of changing addresses.

Besides the increased cost, static addresses have another disadvantage. If the user is blocked from websites that feature IP tracking, then the user will be kept blocked until he/she uses the same IP address to get access to the website.

Hopefully, this article provided the insight about different types of internet connections for IP surveillance cameras.
