What's the difference between IP camera and Web camera?
When you think that you need to buy a network camera so that you could see the video remotely through the Internet. you will go to the store and find out that there are two types of network cameras on shelf. First type is called web camera that is worked by connecting to the personal computer through a USB cable. It's rather cheap. Since the web camera needs a computer connected, it's not flexible for most of the application. The next type is called IP camera that can work along without a personal computer. It's a little expensive. But because it only needs to connect to home network through Ethernet cable or wireless, its flexibility is what you want, so you buy one IP camera.
What's the problem of other's IP camera?
You spend some time to install the IP camera in the home network following the installation guide. After some effort, you will be able to see the video on your PC or notebook computer. It's exciting. You then want to see the video outside your house. Anyway, you can not see the video outside your house. You then check the installation guide and user manual of the IP camera. You will find out that you need to do some complicated configurations on your home NAT/router device, like DDNS setting, port mapping or virtual server settings. Otherwise, you need to apply for a fixed IP service from the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and re-install the IP camera again. If you have ideas about NAT/router devices, it's possible that you could finally make it work after many hard works. But in most cases, you will give up because it's too complicated.
