Commercial Video Camera Surveillance

A camera surveillance system can provide you with crime deterrence value, notification and evidence. As a business investment, camera surveillance installation can provide substantial returns by reducing the incidence of break-ins, vandalism and employee theft; and they may become a valuable tool for verification of workplace accidents or providing a record of other problematic activity. With the recent evolution of IP-based systems, megapixel cameras now have greatly improved image resolution, making video identification and camera surveillance one of the most effective security strategies you can employ.

A wide variety of camera types and recording systems are available, most including remote surveillance and may include features like email event notification. Effective surveillance strategies include careful consideration of light issues, field of view, object distance, image resolution, recording time, environmental factors and video management interface. With so many options available, a customized design with professional installation is your best opportunity for successful video camera surveillance.

Video Surveillance Cameras

Many types of cameras are available. Choosing the right camera and lens can be critical to achieving your video surveillance objective. Available camera characteristics include: day/night function, wide dynamic range, back-light compensation, pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ), infrared illumination, license-plate capture, thermal imaging and mega pixel resolution to name a few. Critical factors such as image sensor size and type, lux rating and optical lens quality are important in choosing the right camera for your application.

Video Surveillance Recording

From simple recording of video clips triggered by an alarm event, to weeks or months of video stored on a hard drive, systems can be designed for your specific needs. All of our systems can be viewed remotely. Video management tools on the digital video recorder, remote software, or through web-based interface permits you to view cameras live and search video using simple, user-friendly menus.

Remote Camera Monitoring

The advent of “video analytics” has created an opportunity for camera surveillance systems to offer proactive crime deterrence and other benefits using remote monitoring or Remote Guard Services. With this service, analytics in the camera or system can identify a person or unwanted activity on the surveillance site, sending the guard an alert with a video clip. The guard confirms the suspicious activity via the camera, then can “voice-down” to the site using speakers connected at the camera location to warn the potential perpetrator to leave the site. Guards can also contact the police directly when a crime is in progress.
