How do I store my IP camera footage?

Can you mix and match IP cameras?

Can I use any IP camera with any NVR?
Most IP cameras and professional NVR softwares support RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol). As long as they do, you can use them together without worrying about compatibility. Check the spec (usually in Network section) to see if they support it.
Can I connect an IP camera to a DVR?
Since DVRs only have BNC ports built-in, a PoE switch is required to connect any PoE cameras over the network to the DVR. You can even setup a standalone security camera system by connecting the PoE switch directly in to the network port of the DVR.
