Commercial CCTV installation: Project background
Upon reviewing the existing CCTV system in place, our client knew it was very basic and needed upgrading. Their current CCTV surveillance cameras only provided low resolution video streams which made identifying thieves almost impossible.
What was the impact on their business?
Our customer had several vehicles stolen and the old CCTV cameras did not provide the clarity required to identify the perpetrator. The client needed a CCTV solution which not only provided Full HD video quality but would also notify the staff out of hours if a person entered the car park of the site.
The recommended commercial CCTV system: IP (PoE) security cameras , PIR detectors and monitoring
After a meeting with the office manager we identified two key concerns. The current system offered poor image quality, which made catching thieves difficult and there were areas that the current CCTV cameras didn’t cover.
All in all a new CCTV security system needed to be designed and installed.
In addition to upgrading the cameras to full HD capabilities, the customer desired a system that would notify them of potential intruders and thieves.
If a person were to enter the car park a 7 second video clip would be sent to the staff’s smart devices (phones, tablets).
To do this we integrated external Passive Infra-Red (PIR) detectors within the CCTV setup.
When the PIR detector picks up movement the system sends a snapshot & video clip of the relevant camera to staff.
