The storing of images facilitates post-incident analysis that may be helpful to an investigation.

CCTV system Cameras transmit images via cable or wireless links. The images can be recorded in different ways with different implications for quality. The availability of specialized uses such as number plate and facial recognition has generated more potential applications for cameras. The technology is only one part of a CCTV system. No system can work without a control room and there is wide variation in the way that these operate.
A CCTV system has the ability to view the recording after the fact. Imagine, for example, that a thief breaks into your facility while you’re out. Your video recording can be instrumental in helping the police identify the thief, and serves as evidence in the event of a trial. CCTV systems can be an important addition to your facility, and most insurers recognize their benefits to the point of reducing your insurance premiums when you install a security system with CCTV capabilities.
There are many different types of CCTV systems and they have different capacities to meet a variety of objectives. They consist of the following:

  • Static (focusing on a single view)
  • Able to pan, tilt and zoom (moved by operators or placed on ‘tours’ to survey a succession of scenes)
  • Fixed (permanently installed in one location)
  • Mobile (placed in vehicles and transported to where they are needed)

General Surveillance

Cameras are installed in general areas to provide overview images of facilities. Cameras are also installed at entrance and exit points of a facility to provide information of movement through these access points.

The use of video is by far the most popular and effective means of security surveillance, as it provides a quick and efficient means to confirm the details of a scenario – mainly real time images. It also serves as an extremely large data source, which can be effectively used by video analytics algorithms and artificial intelligence neural nets to provide automated detection and response.

Although the choice to use video may be an easy decision, choosing the type of video that best serves your detection needs and budget involves careful consideration. Specifically, the decision to use visible light (optic) colour cameras versus thermal cameras. This is dependent on many factors, including the use of each camera, the intent to automate detection with video analytics, detection accuracy requirements, operating environment, budget considerations, etc.

LPR Cameras (License Plate Reader)

License plate capture cameras, also known as license plate recognition / LPR cameras, are a specialized type of video surveillance camera designed to capture numbers and letters of license plates on still or moving vehicles. LPR cameras are designed with built-in software and hardware that compensates for speed, weather, and headlight glare. Regular security cameras typically cannot compensate for these variables to capture a usable video that identifies license plate numbers.


Perimeter Surveillance

No matter what perimeter you wish to protect, you deserve a reliable security solution you can trust around the clock, and in any weather and light conditions. A perimeter protection solution detects potential and real intrusion threats, and allows you to take quick action when something really happens.

Perimeter protection solutions gives you an edge where security starts, at the perimeter of the property. We are able to deliver a scalable and flexible video analytic application for perimeter intrusion detection. Using a combination of optical pan, tilt, zoom (PTZ) and thermal cameras with network horn speakers.

Thermal Camera Systems

For surveillance scenarios where detection is paramount in all types of lighting and weather conditions, thermal cameras prove to have far superior performance over general optical cameras.

An advantage of thermal cameras is that they produce images based on radiated heat rather than reflected light. All living things and inanimate objects emit some degree of heat naturally, making them apparent to thermal imagers, even if the human eye (or visible spectrum cameras) may not be able to perceive them.

Thermal cameras also cover larger distances which reduces the amount of thermal cameras required to cover the entire perimeter. This also reduces the cost of camera poles, brackets and communication equipment.
