The benefits of installing CCTV and surveillance systems
Looking for an affordable way to improve security in your facility? Installing CCTV and surveillance systems in your building is an easy, efficient, and cost-effective way to make your commercial building or facility more secure. Banks and other facilities that require around the clock monitoring have been relying on CCTV (closed circuit television) surveillance systems for years. Instead of facing the expense and hassle of maintaining a squad of physical guards on the premises, building owners can provide protection for their entire facility using a single guard and a CCTV and surveillance system.
How CCTV and surveillance systems work
CCTV surveillance systems are the security option of choice for banks, airports, casinos, military installations, and other operations that require absolute security. Closed circuit television technology is ideal for highly sensitive security applications, because it privately broadcasts video along secure channels. The feeds only reach authorized monitors, reducing the chance that others will gain access to the information. Advances in digital recording technology have helped CCTV and surveillance systems to become so affordable and easy to install that they are now widely used for a variety of personal, private, and commercial applications.
CCTV security systems for offices
To be effective, security systems for offices need to provide constant monitoring of the premises. Maintaining an around the clock guard presence to physically tour a facility is prohibitively expensive for most office building owners. Installing a CCTV surveillance system in your building may be the ideal solution.
CCTV security systems for offices can be customized to provide the exact security options needed to fit every size and type of facility. These customized surveillance solutions can use a variety of different CCTV camera and digital recording options to provide monitoring for every area of a facility, even in office buildings that include specialized environments such as low light conditions or garages.
Building CCTV system options
Building CCTV system options are available to suit virtually every facility and security need. You can mix and match CCTV cameras, then pair them with a digital video recording option to create a customized security solution for your building. Available CCTV camera options include:
Network (IP) cameras
Highly versatile cameras that securely transmit images over the Ethernet. Video can be monitored from anywhere in the world via the web
Fixed position cameras
Rugged, stable cameras that can be used indoors or outdoors using telescopic mounts with adjustable swivel heads on ceilings or walls
Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) cameras
Monitoring every area of your facility is easy with PTZ cameras that can be remotely moved up-and-down or side-to-side using a joystick controller or keypad. Zoom in or pan out to see every detail or program a specified watch tour.
Thermal imaging cameras
Ideal for low light or extreme lighting conditions, thermal imaging cameras use advanced technology to detect subtle temperature shifts. Ideal for CCTV security solutions in outdoor areas where darkness or weather conditions interferes with surveillance by other cameras
License plate capture
If you have a garage or parking lot attached to your building, license plate capture cameras will allow you to monitor traffic. License Plate Capture Imaging software, also referred to as Automatic Number Plate Recognition, or ANPR, uses optical recognition to log in license plates so you can compare them to a list of authorized vehicles if needed.
CCTV recording solutions
There are a number of different CCTV video recording solutions available, ranging from dedicated digital video recorders to networked video management servers. Another option is Video Surveillance as a Service, where your video is managed off-site through the Internet and stored in the Cloud rather than on-site.
