Monitor your premises from wherever you are in the world
CCTV is becoming ever more important in the fight against crime, and now with an internet connection, you can monitor your home or business from wherever you are.
Conventional CCTV Systems
A conventional CCTV system will consist of any number of cameras, linked back to a Digital Video Recorder (DVR). This will record all cameras continuously. Depending on the storage and number of cameras, you should always have the last 2-4 weeks footage recorded. In the event of an incident, the required footage can be backed up to either CD/DVD or a USB stick depending on the DVR and the footage passed to the relevant authorities.
All DVR's are now capable of being connected to the internet via your router, allowing you to view your cameras remotely via a PC or phone with an internet connection.
Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) Monitored Systems
Designed correctly, a monitored CCTV system can stop a crime before it is committed. Images are still recorded locally onto a DVR, but are also designed with movement detectors sited externally - so when armed, any activation is transmitted to the ARC via an internet connection. A trained operator with then connect to the CCTV cameras on your site and can give a verbal warning to any persons seen, or if a crime is in progress, call the Police and inform the keyholders.
IP cameras offer several benefits over standard analogue CCTV systems such as
- HD images offer superb picture quality, with the extra detail allowing for easier identification of people
- can utilize any existing network saving on installation costs
- images can be recorded locally at the camera, to a network storage device or a combination of both giving a back up incase of failure/theft
- analytic software available, allowing for the detection of specific motion so storage isn't wasted recording unwanted footage
