What's the meaning of P2P IP Camera and how does it works?

How easy it has become to carry out surveillance monitoring using just a cell phone and P2P IP Camera.

With HDX P2P cameras – use a smartphone, download the app, scan the QR code and start viewing a live feed of the camera. Before P2P IP camera came along, cameras used to be a nightmare to setup. Setup the camera, then login to the router and setup a DDNS and open ports to allow access.

P2P stands for “Peer to Peer”. It is a technology that makes it simple to link the camera with a smartphone.

In camera speak, there is a UID (unique ID) assigned to each camera. When the smartphone app is opened, it pings the P2P server which in turn looks for the listed UIDs and where they are located. If the camera can be pinged, it shows as online, others are offline.

Once the cameras are reached, it creates a direct connection between the app and the camera. Just like the popular Bittorent peer to peer file sharing platform.

Advantages of P2P technology used in HDX IP Cameras

    • P2P networks are highly scalable. e.g. Torrent sites have millions of users worldwide.
    • As P2P is de-centralised, i.e. services are spread out over various peers, it makes the system quite reliable.
    • Cheap and affordable, no recurring costs for users.
    • P2P streams can be used to connect with multiple devices simultaneously.
    • P2P stream can be used to backup data to the cloud
    • Allow secure connections between the camera and viewing client with encrypted streams
    • Not limited or blocked by closed ports, no DDNS setup, firewalls, etc.
    • P2P UID is installed into the camera before shipment, no further settings are required.
    • The stream doesn’t pass through a cloud server, the cloud only helps establish the connection.
    • The camera doesn’t use bandwidth to constantly upload data to a cloud. It only uses bandwidth when a viewing device logs in to receive the feed.
