CCTV Surveillance Systems
Running a successful CCTV surveillance system company means covering every angle. Protecting businesses from vandalism, theft, shrink, and fraud, the mere presence of a standard CCTV security camera system is certain to have an impact. Add to that, a business with the ability to select from a variety of crucial surveillance system services like DVR Health Monitoring, Virtual Monitoring, and Instant Notifications that report pending DVR data overages or possible system errors via email or text alerts, is a business with the power to protect its investment.
A commitment to customer service excellence guarantees a quick turn around on all repairs. A top notch staff of rigorously trained CCTV technicians performing maintenance extends the life of any CCTV video surveillance monitoring system. Cost effective upgrades when needed are always an option. Secured in an off site facility resistant to damage by water or fire, a client's data is always safe.
Expertly installed and thoroughly maintained, a typical CCTV camera security system is fraught with difficulties beyond what a traditional camera endures. Possible attacks by vandals, extreme lighting and weather conditions, and challenging home or work space environments requiring discrete camera placement are all considerations the CCTV expert must resolve. Consuming all fields of view and angles is paramount. But, a video monitoring surveillance system is only useful and cost effective if it's installation is done properly and up to code. Striking the balance, a placement must be both aesthetically appropriate and installed where it can be reliably serviced in the future. Select a security surveillance company like FSS. and every angle gets covered.
CCTV IP Solutions
An Internet protocol camera, or IP camera, is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance, and which unlike analog closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet.
Two-way audio via a single network cable allows users to communicate with what they are e.
seeing (e.g. gas station clerk assisting a customer on how to use the prepay pumps)
Flexibility: IP cameras can be moved around anywhere on an IP network (including wireless).
Distributed intelligence: with IP cameras, video analytics can be placed in the camera itself allowing scalability in analytics solutions.
Transmission of commands for PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) cameras via a single network cabl
Encryption & authentication: IP cameras offer secure data transmission through encryption and authentication methods such as WEP, WPA, WPA2, TKIP, AES.
Remote accessibility: live video from selected cameras can be viewed from any computer, anywhere, and also from many mobile smartphones and other devices.
IP cameras are able to function on a wireless network.
PoE - Power over ethernet. Modern IP cameras have the ability to operate without an additional power supply. They can work with the PoE-protocol which gives power via the ethernet-cable.
PTZ Camera Solutions
PTZ is an abbreviation for pan, tilt, and zoom and reflects the movement options of the camera. Other types of cameras are ePTZ where a megapixel camera zooms into portions of the image and a fixed camera that remains in one position and does not move. Surveillance cameras of this type are often connected to a DVR to control the movement and record the video.
An innovation to the PTZ camera is a built-in firmware program that monitors the change of pixels generated by the video clip in the camera. When the pixels change due to movement within the cameras field of view, the camera can actually focus on the pixel variation and move the camera in an attempt to center the pixel fluctuation on the video chip. This process results in the camera following movement. The program allows the camera to estimate the size of the object which is moving and distance of the movement from the camera. With this estimate the camera can adjust the cameras optical lens in and out in an attempt to stabilize the size of pixel fluctuation as a percentage of total viewing area. Once the movement exits the cameras field of view the camera automatically returns to a pre-programmed or "parked" position until it senses pixel variation and the process starts over again.

A network video recorder (NVR) is a software program that records video in a digital format to a disk drive, USB flash drive, SD memory card or other mass storage device. An NVR contains no dedicated video capture hardware. However, the software is typically run on a dedicated device, usually with an embedded operating system.
Network video recorders are distinct from digital video recorders as their input is from a network rather than a direct connection to a video capture card or tuner. Video on a DVR is encoded and processed at the DVR, while video on an NVR is encoded and processed at the camera, then streamed to the NVR for storage or remote viewing.
NVR is used in IP video surveillance systems.
Hybrid NVR/DVR security systems exist which incorporate functions of both NVR and DVR; these are considered a form of NVR.
NVR home security systems are wireless, tend to be easy to set up, can be accessed through a web browser, and allow the user to be notified by email if an alarm is triggered.
