Security cameras are something the average consumer would see at an office building or your common store parking lot. These types of security cameras are usually close circuit cameras with miles of co-ax cables running to a central security office and can only be viewed at this one location. The next option on the market today which is a lot more affordable, are network connected via RJ45 which are nick named IP cameras. These cameras for the most part have been the standard eyeball camera consumers have been purchasing for years for their personal PC, but rather than connecting to your PC via a USB connection, these cameras are assigned or obtain an IP address on your network. So from your PC to access and view the camera one would open your web browser and entering the IP address of the camera and pressing enter. There are some IP cameras with security which require the user to enter a password to view what the camera, where others have a lot more features.
