With spring and summer typically a popular time to buy and sell property, and the COVID-19 pandemic finally looking like it is under control, now is a great time for first homebuyers to take a step onto the property ladder. Read more
Commercial properties typically are equipped with business security systems. We have installed hundreds in Northern Ireland. Homeowners, by contrast, often rarely invest in security solutions and rely on traditional locks to get the job done.
One of the main challenges of converting analogue systems to HD is the variety of platforms which are found in older coax systems. Integrating IP cameras can be a difficulty with an existing cabled system. Not all DVRs suit all the difference platforms and it is important to find the right recording device, however configuring it can be another struggle.
The Ultra and Pro DVRs offer Penta-brid compatibility and deliver a streamlined, open-source recording solution and explore five additional reasons to embrace the newest additions to the HDCVI 3.0 group.
Many organisations consider implementing new video surveillance systems or even upgrading their outdated systems to make use of the recent technical improvements. There is a wide variety of security threats which businesses and other facilities have to face including theft by employees or visitors, violence, threats from outsiders and many other types of crimes. Each installation presents a unique coverage challenge in order to ensure that cameras are capable of providing useful images across all possible areas which require coverage. Multi sensor panoramic cameras provide many different benefits which can help organisations meet any unique challenges.

Surveillance systems which cover the extent of your facility are crucial in order to protect your assets and provide extremely important business data. Cameras are the foundation of any surveillance system and for the highest functionality it is important to provide the most camera coverage that is possible. This however, doesn’t require a higher camera count. It is important to consider the value of each individual camera and performance which it delivers, when looking at the density requirements of your camera installation. Businesses require security systems which perform to the highest of standards, therefore these cameras must have the resolution which would recognise faces and license plates, read numbers well and observe customer activity. Standard cameras provide 300,000 pixels per camera, while megapixel cameras provide atleast 1.3 million pixels per camera. Multi-sensor cameras have the ability to provide up to about 16 million pixels by combining several imaging sensors, therefore they can cover a greater distance while delivering higher performance and more capability, requiring lower camera densities to be built into the systems.
It is not complicated to decide what camera resolution is right for you, however it can be confusing if you aren’t familiar with best practices. How to make sure your video surveillance system is capturing the needed detail in a scene, without incorporating high-level megapixel cameras which your customer may not require?
In order to have appropriate security in place, you may require specific cameras for day/night time, as CCTV cameras require light to see and therefore when the sun is away they may be unable to form a picture. However, cameras that are built for night time viewing may have trouble forming a clear image throughout the day. Read more
HDCVI was first introduced in 2012 with the purpose to provide high definition video over coaxial cable. This line of cameras and recorders has expanded since then in order to include a host of cutting-edge technologies.
HDCVI cameras are available in fisheye, PTZ, multi-sensor and covert options as well as traditional fixed models. Some also include options such as Starlight technology, True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and 4K resolution. Certain hybrid HDCVI recorders have Smart H.265+ which allows more data to be captured with a lower impact to the unit storage. Penta-brid technology makes HDCVI recorders compatible with the five most commonly used video formats which are HDCVI, TVI, AHD, CVBS and IP, which provides added flexibility. The latest innovations in HDCVI products are Smart Motion Detection and Night Colour. Read more
