As one of the simplest and most versatile methods of surveillance and monitoring, CCTV systems remain popular with both domestic and private premises.
CCTV camera systems can include features such as license plate and facial recognition and boundary-protecting features such as line crossing, which when partnered with access control, allows authorised members of staff to access the cameras and recordings.
So, what CCTV and access control options can you expect from DCS?
Available for both home CCTV and the protection of private properties, here are the CCTV camera features you can choose from with Double Check Security.
An IP camera system is a variety of digital video camera capable of sending and receiving data via a computer network and the internet – most commonly used for surveillance purposes.
Unlike an analogue CCTV camera which sends video to VCRs or DVRs, videos captured from IP cameras and stored within networks can be accessed from anywhere.
Similarly, the image resolution can be up to 20 times better and allows users to zoom in to capture finer details while being operated remotely.
Finally, IP systems allow for the use of a wireless CCTV camera or network, even in historic or Grade-listed properties, reducing the concern of adding wires to the front of buildings.
For this reason, DCS would always recommend an IP camera for new or existing CCTV camera installation.
Traffic/ license plate recognition
For properties concerned with monitoring access, specialist security camera installation can include CCTV that’s able to capture the number plates of individuals coming and going from a particular location.
These CCTV installations work in all weather and lighting conditions, providing security day or night, and can be linked to security barriers or gates, allowing security staff to further limit unauthorised access.
Used predominantly as perimeter protection, line crossing imposes a virtual line marker around a property or feature – such as driveways – and once this line is crossed, a series of actions can occur. These include starting CCTV recording, alarm activation, or sending alerts to security staff.
Line crossing can also be used to count people if required.
