    How we test

    Overall score includes:

    Image quality (60%), Ease of use (40%)

    Image quality
    When assessing how well an IP camera performs we look at its image quality in daylight and low-light conditions. We look at the clarity of the images, the contrast at close range (2m) and a moderate distance (4m). We look at how well they show a person, objects and graphics/text for reading any signage on vehicles or name badges.

    Ease of use
    Assesses the set-up and use of the camera, including installation, ease of recording and motion detection. We also look at how easy it is to receive alerts when motion is detected. A camera scored higher if it sent an email with a screenshot, but any email or push notification to a mobile was considered good. We also scored cameras on how easy it is to automatically and manually take photos or recordings, irrespective of whether a notification was sent, and how easy it is to store footage to cloud storage.
