Hardware Recommendations

Strand strives to work with best-of-class hardware manufacturers that have evidenced a long-term commitment to the surveillance camera market. Strand utilizes a rigorous selection process when determining the hardware partners chosen to integrate with the Strand solution. Given the dynamic nature of the IP video market new hardware with advanced feature set functionality is continually introduced to the market. Strand selectively chooses partners based on many criteria with the primary focus on innovation and long-term camera manufacturer viability.


Strand is compatible with TCP-IP networks. Cat 5e or higher rated network cabling is recommended.


Strand is generally compatible with standard 10/100/1000 network switches. If cameras are to be powered by PoE (Power Over Ethernet) be sure that the PoE switch is capable of providing the PoE wattage required for all cameras on the system. (Check with switch and camera manufacturers for detailed specs.)
