CCTV is a critical security tool, not only for security requirements but as day to day management tool.
The presence of CCTV has the potential to reduce crime and a proper, well designed system will reduce manpower costs and improve efficiencies.
Shrinkage will be considerably reduced with the introduction of a CCTV system.
CCTV camera applications can be sued in commercial, industrial, manufacturing and domestic environments.
There are a multitude of different cameras available depending on the specific application.
Face and number plate recogniton cameras
These high definition cameras are applicable where facial or number plate recognition is important.
Pan, tilt and zoom cameras (PTZ)
These cameras can be manned and operated either on or off site, and allow the user to zoom in or change the angle of the camera (pan,tilt, zoom) to obtain a better vantage point.
Infra Red (multi focal) Cameras
These cameras are suitable for day and night viewing, specifically in poor and varying light conditions.
These cameras are applicable to sites with no wire ways to run cable to a DVR or a Monitoring Centre.
These cameras allow connection through an existing LAN network, with the restriction of only allowing authorised users to view footage.
The option exist to have a dial in facility to view cameras remotely with real time recording.
