IP Systems - Internet Protocol cameras connect with a wireless intranet or internet connection to transmit their recorded images. The DVR in an IP CCTV system has got a secure gateway into which the cameras can link wirelessly, while at the same time being able to connect through an internet router for monitoring purposes. One of the benefits of IP systems is the opportunity to record video and images to another location, including your smartphone, so any relevant footage can't be deleted on-site by an intruder. But, the encryption and security features have to be set up correctly to stop any unsanctioned viewing of your recordings.

Cloud Systems - Uses an encrypted secure gateway to record camera footage into the "cloud".
