Things to consider when choosing surveillance cameras

Below is a list of a the most important questions that we ask when we come to your location for a security evaluation.  We need as much information as possible to ensure the proper installation and equipment to cover the type of application required.

  • Where is the system going? Is it a home or office? – This is helpful to know as the types of cameras used for different applications can be very similar but coverage can be more limited on lower end cameras that on higher end cameras.
  • Are the cameras going to be inside or outside? – Many camera types are suitable for inside and outside but not all of them.
  • What is the lighting like where the cameras are to be mounted? – This is important to determine if you need infrared cameras or just basic cameras.
  • What is the size of the area that you are trying to cover? (Distance from camera to the end of the property and width of area to be covered) – Many of the lower end or Analog cameras are only able to focus on shorter distances.  These cameras are great for indoor applications but not very useful outdoors.  Then there are the higher resolution HD or IP cameras that will reach quite a bit further or even better, PTZ cameras that you are able to control manually and point, tilt and zoom to the area you want to view.
  • What types of coverage are you looking for? – Are you watching over a cash register? Are you watching over an office? Are you trying to catch someone who is stealing your mail at home? Are you tracking license plates in a public parking lot? These are all different things that we have seen people use cameras for.  This will help to determine the clarity that you need and range of view that you need.
  • What is your budget? – This too can help determine the type of equipment to offer.  If you are a homeowner then chances are you are not going to have the same budget that a large corporation will have.  This can also determine the type and number of cameras to offer.
  • How much time do you need to be able to review? – Some types of companies are required a certain amount of time be available on their camera recordings.  For example: we had a client that due to the type of clients that they catered to they were required by law to be able to access footage as far back as 90 days.  This helped us to determine the proper hard drive size and settings for the cameras to make sure that the footage was guaranteed to save that far back.

All of these are very important things to consider before sitting down with one of our representatives for your free custom security review.  We take pride in everything we do and we want to be sure that you get the right system to fit your needs.  Please feel free to call us if you have any questions or to set up your free evaluation today.

Summer time = higher rate of crime

It’s almost summer time and as the weather gets nicer the rate of crime raises because more and more people are stepping out of their homes and getting out in the fresh air and sun.  This means more and more homes are being left unattended and susceptible to burglary and theft.  This is also the time of year that many people go on vacation.  Wouldn’t it be great to be able to look in on your home or business while you are away and know that no matter what your investment is secure.

With the advances in technology the new HD Surveillance Cameras can not only catch thieves in the action but the picture is so much clearer and, unlike the still photos that are somewhat blurry and hard to make out detail that we are so used to seeing on the news, the newest line of IP cameras are much better. The picture is clear and details can actually be seen as well as zoomed in.  On the older surveillance systems things like license plates, name tags, tattoos and scars could not be seen clearly because the resolution of the older analog cameras were so choppy.

Analog cameras are more of a frame by frame type of camera versus IP cameras that stream live digital images to a storage device like a DVR, NVR or even a bank of televisions in a security room so that more of these criminals can be caught.  Just as televisions have improved their images so have the cameras that film the images that we watch on these new HD Televisions.

Much like the videos we take of our family on vacation, the video that is captured by Security cameras can be a valuable addition to our lives.  They can be accessed remotely to check in on your home or business and be assured that while you are away that your valuables and assets are secure.  This will allow rest, relaxation and security that you need while taking a break from your usual routine.  Business owners can take comfort with our POS solutions that link to your cash register and will record every transaction so you can be sure that while the cat is away the mice will not be allowed to play.

Security = “Peace of Mind”

Many of us get comfortable in our lives with our day to day routines and commonality of every day being just like the one before.  Then someone comes along and violates our comfort and “Peace of mind” by breaking into our home, business or even our vehicle as it sits in front of our home.  Your home is supposed to be the one place you feel the safest and in today’s society crime is on the rise and it happens more than ever before.  You wake up in the morning and go about your everyday routine and as you leave your home to go to your job, take the kids to school or even just to take care of daily tasks like running errands and buying groceries and in your very own driveway is the car you work so hard to pay for in shambles.  Glass everywhere, the door open and your personal items scattered because items of monetary value is what they seek and they have taken what they want and left the rest behind.  Your heart sinks and you feel violated.  Even though most of are smart enough to bring in the items that thieves look for so they aren’t stolen while we sleep, it still feels like an invasion of privacy and most of all it cost us money to repair or replace the damaged parts of the car.  Car break ins are common and no matter how or where it happens it is a very uncomfortable feeling.  Even more uncomfortable is if someone invades your home or business.  Coming home from work to find your home wide open and your most valuable items taken right from under your nose.

Being in the security industry we hear all the time that “Surveillance cameras are for businesses not for homes.”  “Security cameras are to expensive for the everyday application of a home.” This is just simply not true.  The story above happens on a daily basis all around the world.  It happened to you at one time or to someone you know and love.  You call the police and they come out and fill out a report and you have a choice… file a claim with insurance or replace the items yourself and save yourself the insurance cost increase because of course insurance is available but if you use it they penalize you by increasing your rates.  Why are these the only options?  Well because without proof there is nothing the police can do.

Here is another scenario, after finding your car or home disheveled and broken, you go into your house and go to the security footage.  You now have something to go on!  You have video proof of what happened and when.  This is the proof the police need to track down the thieves that have broken into your car or home.  They can take finger prints and unless you have something to identify the person who has violated your privacy or unless they are a repeat offender and in the police database, there is not much the police can or will do about it.  It is a very sad fact.

Time and time again we hear stories of vandals, thieves and criminals being caught on camera and when that happens it brings us back our “Peace of mind.”  Justice is served and one less criminal will get away with violating the laws that are in place to protect those of us who actually work for the things we have.  We install surveillance systems in homes and in businesses and often time we get calls from our customers that because of our system, they were able to catch the intruder that took away their comfort in a split second when they invaded their space.  If you have had this happen to you or someone you love has or even if it hasn’t happened but you want to ensure it doesn’t, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to come out and give you a free security evaluation and bring you the “Peace of mind” you so rightly deserve whether it is in your home at night, while you are away at work, on vacation or even just out for a couple hours running errands. Outdoor cameras are equipped with automatic infrared so that as the sun goes down your camera will automatically switch and give you the optimal view of your investment.  All of this is just as valuable around your home as it is at your business.

We specialize in security cameras and we pride ourselves in what we do.  We will be happy to evaluate either one for you.  Call 720-535-5803 or you can fill out our information request on the side of this page and we will get back to you as soon as possible.  Going into the holiday season, take the steps necessary to protect what you have worked so hard to buy and have as your own.

IP Cameras – Your Extra Pair of Eyes

Security is something that everybody wants. Nowadays, people are ready to pay to be secure. Things are not like the old days where we could leave our doors unlocked because we could easily trust people. Even if someone does something wrong they could easily be caught. The scenario is different as people have evolved and technology has evolved so much that after doing something wrong or harming someone technology can help to catch the offender.

People spend money on good locking systems for their homes, cars and businesses. Have you ever thought is that thing enough? Nowadays buglers are so equipped that they know the cheat for every lock you install. There are so many a case on TV where security is weak and is the main reason for some crimes taking place. Be it a bomb blast or some bugler entering somebody’s place or even kidnapping and theft. Everything trickles down to the need for using effective security systems. Here at Security Surveillance System we can help you get solutions to theses by providing IP cameras, CCTV cameras, HD cameras or even wireless solutions.

What are IP Cameras?

Internet protocol camera is a type of CCTV camera that helps you by sending information and receiving information using your internet. Basically there are two types.

One is a centralized camera which handles recording and other is a decentralized camera where recording function is built in

How was IP Camera Evolved?

The first IP camera was found by Axis Communication which was called as Axis Neteye 200. There was documentation released for API called “vapix”. This vapix builds standards of HTTP. This helped to encourage manufacturing third party software to develop good software.

Finally it was released in 2005 by a company called intellect. This camera helped to detect a lot of many events or crossed human life and video events and management.

www.nrdevsites.com/ssscamera  is a site which provides solution to these security problems by providing IP cameras. These cameras are available in 3 models and these are

  • SSSIM-BX22
    Night Vision IP Brick Camera* (2 Mega Pixel CMOS Sensor – Infrared LED – Audio)
  • SSSIM-UI72P
    Night Vision IP Bullet Camera (2 Mega Pixel CMOS Sensor – Weather & Vandal Proof – Infrared LED – Audio)

    • SSSIM-BX22
      Night Vision IP Brick Camera* (2 Mega Pixel CMOS Sensor – Infrared LED – Audio)

Disadvantages of Using IP Cameras

  • These cameras are very costly
  • These cameras need a very high resolution as well as a high bandwidth is needed.
  • Since the transfer media uses internet to transfer information and doesn’t include use of private network criminals can easily attack.

Surveillance System with POS Software

Do you own a retail location that uses a cash register or point of sale (POS) system? Many business owners who have a business that requires the use of a cash register would love to have a record of every item that was rung up, the time, the tender and the person who sold it.  We have a POS system that can integrate into a surveillance camera system that when pointed at a register will not only keep track of your register, and if any cash finds its way into an employee’s pocket, but also is tied into the register itself and will show on screen as the items are scanned, the item name, the quantity and at the end of a transaction will show the total and tender.  If there are any discounts they will show on screen.  If the cash register is off after a cashier ends their shift, you could go into the video and see just where the mistake happened and if it was indeed a mistake.  Everyone knows that mistakes happen but why not cover your own interest and the interest of your employees by providing an indisputable video proof of what happened and when.  This prevents false accusations of theft and hurt feelings all around.  If in fact the employee is stealing from the company then again you will have the proof you need to not only terminate the employee but also to prosecute as theft is a crime no matter how big or small.  If you would like to learn more about POS systems please give us a call and we will be happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Various Types of Security Camera Systems

There are various types of security cameras found on the market in the present day and there are various security camera installation methods. The security surveillance system is the system which monitors activities, behavior, or other changing information of people in order to influence, direct, protect or manage them. The security surveillance system has the power of observation from a distance by means of various electronic equipment or to intercept electronically transmitted information such as phone calls or internet traffic. Instead of using simple and relatively low or no technology methods which include postal interception or human intelligence agents.

One system is the closed circuit camera which is commonly known as CCTV. This type of security cameras  uses video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place which is on a limited set of monitors. Closed circuit cameras differ from broadcast television, as the signal is not transmitted openly, though it may employ transmission from point to point, from point to multi-point or from mesh to wireless links. In general, all video cameras fit this definition.  Most often this term is applied to security surveillance systems in areas where monitoring is needed such as military installations, casinos, airports, banks and various convenience stores.

Another type of digital video camera which is commonly employed for surveillance is Internet protocol camera or commonly known as IP camera systems. Unlike the closed circuit television cameras, these cameras can send and receive data via the internet or a computer network. There are two kinds of IP cameras, the centralized IP camera which requires a centralized network video recorder to handle alarm management, video and recording and the other is the decentralized IP camera which has built in recording functions and thus can record directly to local storage media, like hard disk drives, flash drives or to standard network storage attachment.

A more modern type of security camera is mainly wireless camera. These are the closed circuit television cameras which transmit an audio and video signal to a receiver through a radio band. Many wireless cameras require at least one wire or cable for power, while the transmission of audio or video requires no wiring to the wireless devices. Some of the wireless cameras are powered by battery making the cameras totally wireless from top to bottom. Due to these various types of cameras and various mechanisms of operating, security camera installation methods vary from one to another.

All About Security Surveillance Systems

When we think of the term security what basically comes to our mind is something which will protect us from problems or harm. The actual definition of security is “the degree of resistance to, or protection from, harm.” We want security starting with our own self to our family as well as for our assets. We try securing everything because as humans we need to feel safe and want to be comfortable. Neglecting security issues can be very dangerous leading to loss of life, to assets and ultimately it trickles down making us insecure and feeling violated.

To avoid these things we need to employ surveillance. For most people, we can’t afford to pay a human to watch over our property all the time so we have to come up with other solutions.
