Frequently Asked Questions
Everything you need to know about the IP Cameras
What is a cloud-enabled IP camera?
A Cloud-enabled IP camera is a camera that is connected to the cloud directly and does not require port forwarding. For a cloud-enabled cameras both video and metadata are transferred through a secure and encrypted tunnel making this type of connection the safest.
Why use a cloud platform for an IP camera?
The short answer is the flexibility, the customizability, and the reliability of the cloud when compared to the on-premise solutions. There are a lot of advantages to justify the cloud migration, namely:
the ability to access cameras from anywhere in the world;
the ability to add advanced analytical features even to the most basic cameras greatly increasing the value of the services;
the ability to have an unlimited number of simultaneous users accessing the stream from the camera at the same time;
the flexibility of choosing any archive duration, resolution, frame rate, and image quality;
the ability to view multiple cameras from different manufacturers under a single session;
the ability to review archives even when the camera is not accessible or is powered down;
the ability to trigger smart automation routines based on predefined events;
security of the streams and reliability of the storage.
How does an IP camera connect to a cloud platform for storage and AI analytics processing?
A script that is running on the camera is establishing a secure and encrypted tunnel between the camera and the cloud allowing a direct communication channel through which the video and metadata streams are being pushed to the cloud. Once the footage from the camera is received by the cloud the AI can start applying analytics required in a particular scenario and if needed multiple analytical modules can be activated at once.
How does a cloud IP camera work?
Cloud IP camera works similar to a regular digital camera: it converts video streams into digital streams that can be transferred over RTSP or RTMP protocol. The main difference between a regular digital camera and an IP camera is that the IP camera has a network module that allows the camera to have a unique IP address and the cloud IP camera additionally will have a cloud plug-in that allows the camera to establish a direct connection with the cloud without the need for port forwarding or any special bridges/connectors or routers to be added between the camera and the cloud.
