Network IP security cameras are often more attractive to users because they possess their own IP address and can connect to your network. So long as there is a network connected, these IP cameras can be installed nearly anywhere.
While their convenience and performance are alluring, strict safety measures should be enforced. Because they connect to your network, if not properly protected, they can become a vulnerable access point for hackers, and may threaten your overall network security.
If you are considering installing network IP security cameras and devices, please be sure to recognize the different ways to secure your network.
Understand Your Risk
Take a look at your network overall and understand the risks at hand. Research any potential vulnerabilities and figure out what needs protection. With comprehensive information on potential threats, you can better understand what needs to be done. Here are two questions you should ask yourself during this process:
Secure Your Network Ports
Your network ports are the easiest and most accessible way for hackers to get in. Be sure to secure these entry points.
Know What Security Options Are Out There
Cyber security is always changing. Keep yourself informed and up-to-date on the latest news and information. You will want to focus on physical security and IT when you are searching the web, or attend seminars and trade shows that focus on those topics.

As times change, so does technology. Analog security cameras are slowly fading away, being replaced with much more advanced and efficient solutions. In particular, network IP cameras offer numerous benefits and are a welcome upgrade from analog cameras.
These benefits include easy installation, transition, expansion, and management. Installation for network IP cameras has become easier as plug-and-play options are more readily available. New technologies have allowed analog and IP cameras to coexist within the same system, allowing a slow and smooth transition to an all IP system. Because work is done over a network, expanding and upgrading your security system can be done in house, saving you time and money. Managing your security camera system becomes effortless as you can access your feed remotely through apps on your mobile devices, tablets, or PCs.
