Did you know that an Internet Protocol Camera, or IP Camera, is available in two different styles?
The most common style of IP Camera is the “Centralized” IP Camera. The “centralized” IP Camera Requires a Central NVR(Network Video Recorder). The Centralized IP Camera can be connected directly to the Internet and record to an NVR locally or remotely making this very useful for applications that need the recording device to be hidden or located off site from the cameras.
The other style, “Decentralized” IP Camera actually has it’s NVR functionality built into it’s technology inside the camera.This “Decentralized” IP Camera has the ability to record to many different types of Digital Storage Media such as Network Attached Storage, Hard Disk Drives or the most commonly used Flash Drive. The Flash Drive is very small and makes the Decentralized IP Camera very versatile for low maintenance applications.
