Some of the Many Ways Video Surveillance Can be Used in Your Business
System Components and Capabilities
Advances in technology have made commercial surveillance easy and affordable. Wireless cameras allow for easy installation and send a signal to a receiver up to 10+ miles away. Standard receiver (NVR) units include 4, 8, 16, 32, and 40 camera inputs. You can stack these units and view all video images at once, view selected images, or view only one at a time. You can also view your premises online over the internet or through your cell phone for maximum convenience and safety.
Types of Cameras
The type of cameras you choose depends directly on your reason for surveillance. For deterrence, you'll want overt (visible) cameras to scare away would-be criminals. However, to covertly (secretly) monitor activity in your business, you'll want hidden cameras.
How CCTV Cameras Work
Access to recorded images and storage capacity are critical in commercial installations. You can review previously recorded video at the same time a current video is being recorded. Standard storage capacity of 150 days can be extended to over 1,000 days.
Today's cameras can be programmed to deliver the images you want, when and where you want them. Many camera domes have built in units that pan, tilt, zoom, and focus via PC software. From any PC anywhere in the world, you can aim any one of your cameras and zoom in to view a specific location. The dome units can be programmed for tour duty, meaning they will automatically pan, tilt and stop for a pre-determined time, zoom in and record, then move to view another pre-programmed site. An example is a camera to view the back door and zoom in for one minute then go to an overhead door then to a gate.
Motion detection is another feature that can significantly reduce recording time and storage space. Cameras equipped with motion sensors only record when motion is detected. After a short delay in activity, recording is suspended until activity is once again detected.
