IP is the abbreviation for Internet Protocol Camera. IP cameras are the next level of security cameras. Their designing and performance are much advanced and complex compared to analog cameras. They have an in-built web server which allows them to connect to an IP network directly. However, due to their advanced mechanism, they require periodic maintenance. They have the potential to function as wireless cameras and moved to any place in the system without hassle. IP cameras has opened the threshold for remote monitoring facility via internet and some advanced cameras are able to function without a direct power supply. IP camera communication signals are not just electronic voltage, it is numerically decoded as bits and bytes with security features and TCP/IP protocol.
