It is very difficult to have staff or security keeping an eye on your property and surrounding areas at all times. Even with 24 hour security setup you cannot be in all places at the same time. Therefore, you need to consider a security camera installation.
The CCTV system can help monitor trouble areas or high risk areas where a person or persons could hurt themselves or others, possibly protecting you from an expensive lawsuit.
In most cases, there are no witnesses for many of these incidences and it can be a very costly experience to protect you with a security camera installation.
Video footage can assist with flagellant insurance claims and if duty of care was taken by the property owner when said incident happened.
Cameras can be placed around your building in high traffic areas and where there could be a high risk of insurance claims.
Below we explain all the components we will be using to cover your lawsuit protection needs.
Where Should Security Camera Systems Be?
Cameras can be place around the building in high traffic areas and trouble areas:
Focusing on key areas, such as:
Loading dock bays internal & external
High spill areas
How Cameras Secure Property?
In these key areas, you will be able to monitor and record any movement. With the latest recorders and Video Analytics (software) the security camera installation can be set up to suit your individual needs.
Such analytics are
Camera Position Authentication (CPA)
AD / Activity Detection
VMD / Video Motion Detection
Video Motion Detection VS-40
A quick playback of any camera with the time and date on an encrypted video file can be stored on any format and given to the police, insurance company and management.
Security guards and staff can only do so much to monitor your premises. A CCTV system can monitor your property 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
It is very hard to prove who and when someone has fallen or slipped in hazardous areas. The CCTV system can supply you with peace of mind and an unbiased record of the events.
There are other items that can complement the security camera installation, like improved lighting interfacing with a security alarm system.
Types Of Cabling
Every security installation works on a form of cabling architecture. There are many forms of cabling types and styles. The appropriate cabling setup depends on the needs of the equipment you have installed and the location of where the surveillance system is placed.
We will design the cabling architecture to suit your surveillance, while keeping in mind your individual needs and budget.
This is a list of all the types of cabling styles:
Analogue – Your basic type of security system will use copper cable
Digital – Your more modern security system will be based on IP technology
Fibre Optic – Long cable runs or large amount of data to be transmitted
Wireless – Difficult or remote areas to be cabled can have wireless network
Once a surveillance system is installed and running, we always recommend some form of CCTV maintenance to look after your investment. There are several types of CCTV maintenance that we can perform. Some measures are comprehensive and others are of a more preventative periodic maintenance nature.
As is the case with installation of the right CCTV surveillance system, we will always work with you to meet your maintenance and budget needs.

How Surveillance System Help Clients To Monitor Public And Staff Movement
The following details some information on how surveillance system help clients to monitor public and staff movement. There are many types of surveillance systems. Electronic article surveillance is used to prevent shoplifting at clothing stores and other retail shops. Tags are fixed to items. When you buy the item the tag is removed but if you shoplift then the tag will activate on passing through the exit and the alarm will sound. It is very difficult to remove these tags yourself.
Some common types of electronic surveillance include magnetic surveillance, acoustic magnetic surveillance, radio frequency surveillance, microwave surveillance and video surveillance. Libraries tend to use the magnetic system. When the strip is activated it will produces some low harmonics and when it is demagnetized the harmonics stop. The interruption in harmonics is what causes the alarm to sound. These strips are popular because they are effective but very inexpensive.
Acoustic magnetic surveillance uses two strips. When the two strips vibrate they create a light voltage. When the signal is strong enough and the vibration increases the alarm goes off. These do not go off accidentally as much as magnetic tags but they are thicker so they tend not to be used on books.
Radio frequency surveillance works by using an LC tank circuit. It is possible to deactivate this type of tag by detuning the circuit by using a strong electromagnetic field. The frequency of the circuit will dip and set an alarm off. Microwave surveillance uses microwaves. When someone comes into your surveillance areas they will disrupt the microwaves causes an alarm or light to come on. This type of surveillance is commonly used for outdoor lights.
Infrared surveillance systems are also popular as they monitor heat. The purpose of your surveillance will dictate the type of surveillance system to use. Companies can use surveillance to create a more efficient workplace. Stores can use surveillance to guard against stealing but also to observe buying habits. Surveillance systems can also be used as communication tools, like a doorbell. Surveillance systems can also be used strictly for security to stop an intruder form breaking into your property.
Other options to consider when using a surveillance system is to you need to be able to move the video camera. If you are anxious about night time activity then you will need to use infrared otherwise you will just see a big black picture. Certain systems will need to be connected to specific computers and operating systems. Make sure your equipment can run off the computers you have.
