PoE connectivity simplifies cabling needed to connect a device by allowing power and data delivery over a single network cable such as CAT5e or CAT6. It makes it easy to connect devices such as IP security cameras, or office phones; a separate power supply or electrical outlet for each device is not needed.

Audio Detection is a feature that can be a very reliable way to capture a conversation or other important sounds that need to be recorded. It allows a security camera with a built-in microphone or audio input to trigger recording when sound is detected. You no longer have to rely on video-based motion detection to try and capture audio of an event and missing out on everything that was said. With audio detection you can even capture video/audio when persons are conversing outside the camera's field of view, but near enough to activate audio detection. You can finely adjust the sensitivity and threshold settings to decrease your storage needs. In this guide we show you how to setup and use audio detection with surveillance cameras purchased from CCTV Camera World.

Security cameras are usually used to record video, but in some scenarios, you can leverage the combined power of our cameras and recorders to record snapshots at specified intervals. As discussed in this guide, our IP surveillance cameras with an available microSD slot allow for snapshot capture and storage on the internal microSD memory card. Storage to a microSD on the camera is a convenient option when recording on one camera, but for projects requiring snapshots capture from multiple cameras and easy review from a central station, the use of an NVR along with IP cameras is a more practical choice.

Most of our security camera video recorders feature dual video outputs that include a VGA and HDMI connector. These two video outputs display the same exact screen, meaning what you see on your VGA monitor will be the same as the HDMI monitor. They will not allow you to have your cameras split between two screens. For customers looking to have their security camera system displayed in a split screen view between two monitors, we suggest the purchase of our recorders with Dual HDMI outputs.
