How to check the actual resolution of a security camera

We find that there are many nonprofessional sellers of security cameras with false resolutions, such as claiming a 720p camera to be 1080p. Some are deliberately made, others due to lack of expertise.

Therefore, we’ll teach you how to check the actual resolution of a security camera.

Total Time: 5 minutes

The first way : 1

How to check the actual resolution of a security camera

Open the APP of your security camera. Set the resolution to the maximum and take photos or videos.

The first way : 2

How to check the actual resolution of a security camera

View the file information of the picture or video
View method: Visit www.metadata2go.com, upload the file to the website, then you can see the resolution of the security camera.

Note: Some apps compress pictures or videos, so you can’t use this method to view the security camera resolution.

The second way

View the video saved in the memory card.

Adjust the video resolution to the highest, and then record, after the camera saves the video, the memory card inserted into the computer.
Right-click the video file to view the properties, and then you can see the security camera resolution.

Note: For cameras that will encrypt videos or the memory card, this option does not apply.

The third way

If your camera supports RTSP, you can connect the video through VLC and check its properties.

The above three ways are suitable for most cameras.
If you find that your camera resolution and the seller’s description is not the same, we suggest you return the product and then find a professional camera seller to buy.
