A complete dedicated surveillance system is excellent for monitoring areas in a city.
These systems contain a complete IP surveillance system that includes multiple cameras, computer system, special video recording software, communication equipment such as WiFi, 3G/4G systems and special power systems. These IP security systems are designed to assure that law enforcement is aware of what’s happening in all environments.
The system includes choice of cameras and a built in NVR system with up to 1 TB of storage.
Choice of up to 2 cameras are provided in a complete environmental enclosure with power distributor, surge protection, heater/blower and space for additional components.
Select from a wide range of PTZ cameras and or fixed cameras to create a system capable of identifying a person’s face or license number over 400 ft away.
Analytic Functions in IP Cameras
A number of IP Cameras contain analytic functions that detect changes in the video. For example, most cameras include motion detection, but some have more features that allow you to fine tune the detection. For example, some IP cameras allow you to adjust for size of the object, or provide detection windows or exclusion windows that allow you to adjust where the detection occurs.
More complex analytics include detection of an object crossing a line, or of a missing object, or even detection of an object left behind. The Sony SNC-VM6XX series, and the Canon VP-610 IP cameras, contain these functions. The Sony IP cameras also have “face detection” that can be used to create an alarm.
There are some other functions such as volume level detection that can be used to create an alarm. For example, if there is a gun shot or a person screaming the camera can automatically notify the security person of a problem.
Special analog cameras can be useful when you need a special function not provided by an IP camera. For example there are very small pinhole cameras, covert cameras or very low light cameras.
Thermal imaging cameras operate even when there is no light. They can detect the heat from objects and can be very effective at very long distances. This type of thermal imager will detect thermal activity in total darkness, through smoke, dust, blowing sand, fog and other obscurants.
