How does a security camera with App work?
A security camera with App is a camera that connects to the internet and you can operate it from your smartphone or tablet. A P2P server is usually used for this connection. This is a computer that is somewhere on the internet and connects your smartphone to the right camera via a unique ID and password. Thanks to this P2P server, you don't have to change anything in your network yourself. Via the App you can adjust the settings of the security camera to your wishes and receive a push notification in the event of an alarm.
What types of surveillance cameras with App are there?
At the moment, almost every security camera comes with an option to use it with an App. This applies to all types, including outdoor cameras, PTZ models and complete systems. All Apps often support Android and iOS devices.
What should I pay attention to when buying a camera with App?
When buying a security camera with App, it is wise to look at which app is being used and to check with the supplier how long this app is supported. It is of course of no use to you if you buy a security camera with an app that no longer supports the latest software version of your phone after 2 years. It is also wise to check where the server that manages the images from your security camera is located and who has access to it. With much cheaper security cameras, the App server is located in China. We at Sitcon, for example, have a P2P server where you connect to an EU server and the design must comply with European (privacy) rules.
