One of the most valuable functions of adding video cameras to your home alarm system is the ability for the alarm monitoring station to verify your sounding alarm by viewing your camera and identifying the intruder. The simple fact of having a video verification gives your alarm a priority response to emergency responders. Most municipalities will now only respond to alarms that have been verified, so adding a camera to your home alarm system now makes more sense than ever. To illustrate the importance of video verification, take a look at this linked video that shows actual alarm responses that captured in real time.
For years the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has required verification of alarm events for police dispatch. Sting video verified alarm systems meet this standard and do not require a guard. Video verification is a service that can be added to new and existing security systems.
CCTV surveillance systems have evolved into Integrated Systems. These systems combine the surveillance video cameras with a Digital Video Recorder (DVR) and an easy to use LCD interface. Rather than just displaying the video to a television screen, Integrated Systems allow video to be captured for up to 30 days and the ability to overlay key data with video playback. Integrated Systems also allow for network connectivity, giving the user the ability to access footage from anywhere the internet is. This modern approach to CCTV surveillance allows for a wide range of integration into Burglar Alarms, Point of Sale (POS) systems and specialized software solutions.
Surveillance systems are custom tailored to meet your individual business needs. A “cookie-cutter” approach will not develop an effective surveillance solution. Businesses have different employees, different buildings, and different assets to protect. Sting evaluates each business as their needs are unique. Our surveillance engineers work in conjunction with your company representatives to provide a comprehensive solution that will maximize surveillance effectiveness.
One of the most utilized advantages of a modern surveillance system is the ability of connectivity. A business owner can now easily access their surveillance system from any personal computer. This gives the user the ability to access archive footage, watch live footage, set recording times and monitor transactions.
The installation of a video surveillance system can be made quickly and efficiently with little or no effect on your day to day business.
