What are IP and Analog Cameras?

NVRs and DVRs require different types of cameras as they process video data differently.

NVR technology uses IP Cameras: These are smart cameras that have advanced hardware to capture and encode video footage. They can also act as standalone cameras, while some also lend support to internal microSD cards when it comes to local recording.

DVR technology uses Analog Cameras and sends signals via a coax cable. They have lower quality but perform well in low light conditions. They also have limited site ranges and don't offer the zoom-in clarity like their IP counterparts.
