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.
Higher megapixel cameras and advanced analytics allow security personnel to transfer significant responsibility from onsite security operators to unmanned cameras which would result in a lower total cost of ownership.
There are many benefits of having CCTV cameras and security lighting installed, as they can both deter intruders and offer high security through remote monitoring. CCTV cameras can obtain high quality images and recordings of suspects that may have taken part in a criminal activity within the monitored area. These can be used as evidence in the case of a criminal investigation.
Motion detection is a great tool for analysing a scene and sending alerts when motion occurs. There are a lot of things in a scene that can move such as a tree branch blowing in the wind, a stray cat, overall things that aren’t truly a threat. Smart Motion Detection (SMD) is a new technology that mitigates false alarms and keeps your security operations running efficiently. Read more
It is important to make sure that your cameras can survive the winter, as sometimes below-freezing temperatures can hamper their performance. Here is a handy checklist to keep your security system up and running during the coldest months of the year. Read more
License Plate Recognition (LPR) is often spoken of as an application for collecting license plate data of vehicles travelling on highways and city streets. Parking lot management is a sometimes overlooked beneficiary of LPR technology. Parking lot management with LPR provides high return on investment for residential complexes, school campuses, retail parking lots with time restrictions, or any parking facility that would normally require a patrol to check for unauthorised vehicles.

For much of the history of surveillance, HDCVI analog video has been an important component of nearly every security system. With the ability to observe threats and record and store video, analog cameras were the first to help to mitigate risk from criminals, disruptive persons, and other threats. For many businesses, analog cameras are still continuing to perform these vital functions. Read more
When you install a security camera, it’s probably because you want to make sure that the areas under surveillance are crime-free. It will capture criminal activity and may even give you real-time alerts through a recorder or mobile notification. Though most security camera deployments are considered an act of deterrence, the camera won’t do anything on its own to prevent the crime from happening: it is passive. Active alarm changes this dynamic by serving as a configurable automatic response to a person or vehicle entering the camera’s field of view. The feature is similar to how residential night sensors work when someone walks into the area and the light illuminates. Now, rather than simply recording what’s happening, the camera can help stop what’s happening. It can prevent theft and illegal dumping, for example, or discourage people from entering restricted areas or parking in no-parking zones. Read more
