Top Requested IP Camera Features

Author: John Honovich, Published on Dec 13, 2013

Based on our reader statistics, surveys and requests, IPVM sees the top requested new / upcoming IP features for IP cameras. We have filtered them based on our test results and technological feasibility / benefits.

Hot

Here are 'hot' features that are requested and we see value in:

  • Advanced Motion Detection
  • License Plate Capture
  • Long Range IR
  • Multi-imager Cameras

Not

Here are the 'not' so hot features that are talked about but have real barriers or issues:

  • Fast Frame Rates
  • Facial Detection
  • Single Imager Super Megapixel

Others

Inside, we will also analyze other features - like panoramics, WDR, motorized zoom - that are in between, for a number of reasons. Plus, we look ahead to H.265 and 4K.
