Surveillance System Innovations
From year to year the development of video surveillance system gains momentum, remaining on the agenda and welcoming modernized approaches with each new month. What causes the increase in demand for installation services with possible access to the cameras in online mode? Development of any structure and sphere of human life, not only to guarantees him new experience and any kind of profit, but also increases the risk of possible loss. Speaking of the material side, the purchase of a new home or expensive equipment, without a doubt, will bring joy to the owner, but also require a better protection against intruders, etc.
Video cameras have become so essential not only in order to monitor safety and integrity of the property, but also to observe the situation in personal spaces. When it comes to the office, through these cameras higher management can observe the working process of its subordinates. Equally relevant are those cameras installed at home for instance, in order to control the behavior of the nurse, etc.
Reliable and high-quality monitoring system beyond a variety of objects, without doubt guarantees the consumer a peace of mind. Video cameras are divided into two main types: wired and wireless. The first are markedly gaining popularity and replacing analog video surveillance in the market. Why is this happening? First of all, they are much more comfortable. Ease of management, high quality flexible design of the camera and accessible installation – there are merely compelling factors motivating to make a choice in favor of digital video surveillance system.
Some installation experts mention high cost among disadvantages of the referred system, but this point is quite controversial. Primary costs may be slightly exaggerated as compared to installing older types of video surveillance, but in a subsequent operation economic advantages will be apparent. The main advantage of digital video surveillance systems – is the more advanced technical capabilities.
IP video surveillance can be subdivided into network video recorders and digital cameras. To connect to the DVR you will need a cable, and to record pictures – a hard drive. You will also need: power unit or a switch supporting PoE (Power over the network), various connectors, plugs, crimping devices. Digital video surveillance supports multiple video protocols, one of them – Onvif, allows building a digital video surveillance system with equipment from different manufacturers. In this case, you might have, for example, Dahua DVR and camera manufactured by HikVision, Atis, LG, Samsung, etc.
Network video surveillance system has one important advantage – support for secure remote access, in three time modes: video, real-time, recorded. In order to gain access to the IP camera, you need to connect a network device which in a consequence will guarantee flexible and cost-effective camera operation. In these cases the monitoring might be carried out through a laptop, a smartphone or a mobile phone, or via special application through a standard (pre-authorized in the system) browser.
Prior to installing a video surveillance system, the client should answer a number of questions:
- What exactly do you wish to monitor? Which type of surveillance do you need: internal or external?
- What is the distance from the camera to the subject?
- What is the optimal number of cameras for a room or the entire site?
- What is the desired location of points for video cameras installation?
- What is the importance of high-quality display?
Creation of a network system requires open technology platform. The equipment allows using it in almost any place and in any kind of facility. Surveillance system is perfectly combined and adjusted to other existing systems, so you may construct and develop a digital system in the long term. Power-line supply can significantly save money for extra cables and other accessories. Most cameras have protection in case of unauthorized actions.
