Camera systems are becoming the norm today as law enforcement and businesses turn to surveillance systems for a variety of reasons. For example, a crime in the streets usually brings images of a patchwork quilt of security cameras that happened to in the general area of the crime. How we view the images has changed too. In the past, the facility or security departments needed to be on premise to view the output from these camera systems. Today, it’s quite the rage to be able to see what’s happening remotely using the Internet as the transport mechanism. As in the VoIP telephony world however, one can spend large sums of money on these systems, only to find that their investment is not an effective one. Telemagen is a security preferred provider of security systems and can help you make the best decision for your needs.
HD Digital Cameras
Just having a standard resolution surveillance camera watching an area may not be enough. You may need a high resolution HD camera in place to not only detect an event but also recognize the participants. Also, a lot of mischief happens at night so perhaps an IR night vision camera may be better for your needs. Call us to discuss best practices in this field so that you get the cameras fit for your needs.
Rugged Digital Cameras
Mounted outside, cameras are subject to temperature extremes and sometimes vandalism to name a few environmental concerns to be expected. Also, if a camera is installed at such a height to require lift equipment to install it, then you may want to consider a ruggedized version of the camera to avoid early service costs. Our outdoor cameras are all ruggedized with heavy duty protective coverings, internal heaters, etc. to minimize returning early to the installed camera for untimely maintenance.
Digital Video Recorders (DVR)
More often than not, you will want to record the video coming from the cameras you have installed. This means you will need a DVR to record the images. The size of the DVR and the bandwidth of the network required to transport the images will change based on the number of cameras you have and the frames per second required. Telemagen can make those calculations and recommendations for you to ensure that the video footage will be there when you need it the most.
