All the cameras we sell, including the Safire SF-IPT180UWH-4U-WIDE, are so-called IP cameras. These are digital cameras that can be installed and operated via an application on your smartphone. Online we find a lot of vendors that also sell analogue cameras for a few tens, and of which you store the images analogue on a recorder. This is cheaper, but an old-fashioned technique. You often recognize them by the message in the specification that they support POC, that is Power over COAX.
We don’t think you should buy analogue cameras anymore in the year 2020, and that’s why you won’t find this type of camera in our assortment. When buying a security camera, always make sure that it is an IP camera.
