Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is often used for surveillance in banks, casinos, airports, military installations, and convenience stores. In industrial plants, CCTV equipment may be used to observe parts of a process that are remote from a control room, or where the environment is not comfortable for humans. CCTV systems may operate continuously or only as required to monitor a particular event. Digital Recorders allow for archiving all events and can searched by date and time.
CCTV systems are an important part of your security. By themselves, they are a deterrent. When they don’t stop crime, they help identify the criminal and provide invaluable information about the history of events in any area they cover. Use them in public areas, and they can help determine who should be allowed access to your buildings, who vandalized your equipment, or who attacked your employee or client in the parking lot.
Networked with your Access Control Systems, a CCTV system is invaluable to view doors and areas that need to be monitored. With the proper Digital Video Recorder, your security staff can search the system by any number of variables. CCTV captures faces, license plates, car and truck models, colors and descriptions, all recorded to insure the safety of your personnel, your clients, and your business. For optimum benefit, a good system should have the right equipment.
Cameras. With the proper lens to view the area that you wish to see. It can be fixed or installed with Pan (back & forth), Tilt (up & down), or Zoom (to see a scene more closely.)
Monitors. to view what the cameras are seeing in real time.
Digital Video Recorders. to record scenes from multiple cameras and playback if necessary.
CCTV systems can now be implemented in a variety of ways, including through a network using an IP address or connected with various types of coaxial cable between cameras and the security desk.
