Circuit Television (CCTV) Monitoring Systems
Closed circuit television (CCTV) provides real-time
monitoring of homes, properties, commercial sites, banks
or any place that requires surveillance due to a higher
than average potential for incidences of crime, burglary,
violence or vandalism. Consisting of deliberately placed
cameras that are designed to transmit images to remote
monitoring screens, CCTV's not only catch criminal activity
before it happens but also captures images of the suspects
for easy identification and capture.
CCTV's operate day or night, with nighttime security
cameras using high resolution and infrared technology
to provide clear images in any type of lighting. Quality
CCTV cameras provided by LockAid USA enable image detection
of up to 160 feet in darkness. In areas where lighting
is extremely low, night cameras will automatically illuminate
your company or property with infrared illuminators.
Easily mounted on wall, ceilings or any site considered
a security risk, CCTV cameras are attached to and operate
on sturdy brackets allowing for camera movement and
concealment of wires.
Analog Security Systems
These cameras do not transmit images to remote monitors
that are watched by security officials. Instead, digital
or analog cameras record events occuring in front and
around the area in which they are mounted. Owners of
these types of cameras can then watch recordings at
their convenience to determine whether criminal activity
has occurred. Recording cameras are affordable and provide
security for large, isolated areas such as warehouses
or salvage yards. Digital recording cameras also assist
banks and other financial institutions in deterring
employees from pilfering or performing illegal acts
detrimental to that company.
Places prone to robbery such as convenience stores or
neighborhood grocery marts rely on vandal and bullet-resistance
security cameras to protect their business and catch
thieves in the act. This type of camera is encased in
a tough dome-like housing that effectively protects
the camera from being smashed or shot by potential criminals.
When perpetrators attempt to break a vandal-resistance
camera before committing a crime and discover it is
impervious to destruction, this often deters criminals
from completing the crime, leaving the owner of the
business without damage.
and Point Tilt Cameras
Fixed cameras remain in one position and constantly
monitor one area of a property building. However, individuals
watching images transmitted by zoom/point/tilt cameras
can also instruct the camera to tilt and point in certain
directions. Monitors are then able to view all dimensions
of an area using these versatile cameras. They can even
zoom in on faraway, suspicious looking activity and
discover what exactly what is happening. Public areas
such as casinos and shopping malls frequently employ
mobile cameras in order to view and identify criminals
engaged in illegal activity.
