The installation of the IP security cameras has quite been on the rise over the past couple of years. A simple description of the internet protocol cameras is that these are digital video cameras which are for surveillance purposes and are designed with the ability to send and receive data via the internet and computers. Even though the installation of the IP cameras is in itself not a problem, the problem rears its face when you come to the maintenance of the systems and getting them running to offer the security you desire all because of the activities of the system hackers. We give, in the following parts of this presentation , some of the tips which will be useful for the installation of your IP cameras and keep them safe from the interference posed to them from the delinquents.
Get the camera’s firmware updated regularly. Modern IP cameras come with customizable firmware. The camera manufacturers would oftentimes be in a position to check for lapses in security by ever updating the firmware and correcting the cause for possible lapse. An alternative means of updating the camera’s firmware is by logging into the manufacturer’s website and getting to update the firmware through the admin console. This brings to attention the need to have a constant visit to the firm’s website to stay abreast with the latest renditions of the firmware which have been designed to keep the cameras free of interference by the cyber crackers and delinquents.
Avoid the idea to get your IP cameras linked to the internet as one more step to ensure that they are away from the infiltrating elements which would cause a lapse to their service of security surveillance. In an effort to ensure the cameras are remaining local and giving you privatized services for surveillance, get the cameras locked to a non routable local internal IP address. This however will work even better when you have the cameras locked for exclusivity as per the manufacturer’s directions for having it locked to a local internet mode.
Passwords are a common feature with any security system and the IP cameras are not left out of this anyway. These security features will not however come preinstalled by the makers for they will let you set your own password to operate the cameras. Note the fact that most IP security cameras always come with some basic form of authentication and access codes and thus you will need to set a unique username and a strong password to restrict access by the unauthorized users.
