A camera with HD resolution will provide a clearer, crisper image. Think about the difference between standard and high definition on your TV. An HD-equipped IP (Internet Protocol) camera will capture superior quality recordings at resolutions of 1080p (1080 horizontal lines of vertical resolution) and higher. While many security cameras with 760p resolution are on the market, it’s highly recommended to get a 1080p camera. Note that if other components of your system lack HD capabilities, your recordings will be of a much lower resolution by the time the systems stores or presents it.
