With prices already low you may purchase one of these if your intention is to monitor movements of people in your home or a few square feet of office space. Just don’t go for cheaper system as this is a life time investment for many. The main reason for purchasing IP technology video surveillance camera is because it is standalone equipment and has its own web server to process all the video it streams. Again, an IP with ONVIF compatible would be better as it works under the specification of global open industry standards.
