So, can you use an IP camera as a webcam? The answer is yes. This can be done using a free software on the PC that receives and understands the encoded video stream coming in from the IP camera over the local network and converts it into an integrated webcam, selectable in different video conferencing applications.

In this way, through the IP camera and microphone of the headset or the one integrated in the computer, you can attend video conferences, virtual meetings, courses and webinars without problems.

Even though all IP cameras in theory could be used, the most suitable IP camera models for this purpose are the most compact ones with a stand or desktop installation. Other models could also be used, but it wouldn’t make much sense due to their size, focal length and way of mounting.

To make it easier for you, at Visiotech we have tested the most suitable Safire and Ezviz IP cameras and after confirming that they work as webcams, we have created a simple visual step by step guide with the necessary information and the configuration of the software, as well as how to select the Webcam in the most common video conference and meeting programs such as Skype, Microsoft Teams and Zoom.
