Closed Circuit Television Systems serve as a reliable tool to view and
record all incidents that occur which may go unseen otherwise. Cameras are
available in many variations to serve all needs such as covert, vandal
resistant, pan/tilt/zoom, dome, fixed, thermal / infrared, etc. Multiplexers
allow simultaneous recording of camera shots so no occurrence is missed. Hard
disk recorders allow several GB’s of recorded storage for archiving with the
ability to switch out the hard drive with a fresh replacement. Video monitors
connect with the multiplexer so one can view live shots while they are being
recorded. Playback of previously recorded events can be viewed on monitors as
well. CCTV can transmit over coaxial cable, fiber optic cable, CAT-5 telephone
wire or wireless microwave.
Access Control Systems allow the accountability of employees or members
entering and exiting a building or interior offices. The computer database is
set up to allow or deny the access to designated areas. An access control system
can be integrated with an alarm system to notify a dispatch office of an area
that is potentially being accessed by unauthorized personnel. It can offer a
real time status summary of all events on a single user interface. Alarms are
sorted and displayed according to priority with a color coded format and audible
alarms to offer an overview of the status of entire system.
Alarm/Detection Systems alone are designed to protect a premise with
various alarm components when armed. These components can be motion detectors,
door/window sensors, sound sensors and smoke or heat detectors. An alarm system
can be integrated with a CCTV system to activate recording when motion is
detected or as noted above with access control.
Gated Entry Systems are utilized for traffic control. A fixed keypad can
be provided for drivers to enter a code to activate gate to open for entry.
Drive loops can be installed to automatically activate gate to open when vehicle
approaches. Gates can be programmed for access within certain hours or days of
the week and can be integrated with access control systems.
