Beginner's Guide On How To Install IP Security Cameras Like home security cameras, network cameras or more commonly known as Internet Protocol cameras or IP cameras are becoming more popular each day. Anywhere in your home, you can position these minute IP security cameras, which are typically connected to the internet through a distinct IP address. This enables the user to access video images from just about anywhere in the world using the Internet. Several models allow the users to maneuver the movements of the camera, scan remote areas and other features such as zooming capability. You may be surprised to find out that installing IP security cameras can be quite easy. To start setting up an IP camera, connect the plugs of one of the Ethernet cable's end into the camera's Ethernet outlet. Do the same thing for the other end and the computer's Ethernet port. To avoid confusion, the Ethernet port is commonly located at the back of your desktop PC, while it appears on either side for laptops. Next, run the software and install it on your PC. There may be some differences in setting up and menu system of the IP video camera but at some point, you will have to enter the IP address of the camera. Make sure you keep this IP address as you may need it in the future if you want to view through your IP video camera. Now, turn the camera on and set the camera in one of the locations on your computer. Be sure that your computer is connected to the internet. There are two options on how you can set up your IP cameras at home. The first option is to make use of a really long Ethernet cable so you can keep the connection between your cameras via the Ethernet port and the modem or your desktop or laptop computer. The other option involves the use of a wireless adapter. The wireless adapter has a transmitter which you can plug into the camera. It also has a receiver which you need to plug into your PC. Between the two, the second option is believed to be the better choice. This is due to the fact that there is less wire cluttering with the latter. This will also provide you more flexibility on where to place your IP camera. To view the video from your IP security camera, just enter the camera's IP address at the web browser address bar to activate a pop up which will allow you to choose from any one of the options. Then, click the "View Images" section so you can stream the images. Lastly, test the camera view at a different site to make sure that everything is according to your preference.
