XProtect Hardware Compatiblity List: Be sure to check the compatibility list to ensure your IP camera and/or encoder is compatible. A growing number of IP cameras are now Onvif-conformant, which means even if the camera's make and model is not specifically listed as compatible, it's very likely that it can record using Onvif. But that does not always guarantee that all of the camera's features are compatible with the VMS. Some of the features to check for an Onvif camera including the following:
- recording at one or more particular types of streams (H.264, MPEG4, MJPEG),
- motion detection recording
- phyical camera movement if using a PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom), or any type of camera which performs any pan or zoom movements
- de-warping of lens in a fisheye camera
- recording on Onvif means more load on the NVR's processor, which is not ideal for using a high number of cameras.
If you don't see your desired IP camera(s) on this list, please put configure your IP camera for remote access, and contact us with the public IP address, port number, user name, and password so that we can test compatibility for you.
