Closed Circuit Television is often referred to as CCTV.
CCTV is a visual surveillance tool designed for monitoring a variety of environments and activities. CCTV systems typically involve a fixed communications link between cameras, monitors and PCs; this is unlike broadcast television where any remote control receiver that is correctly tuned in, can pick up the signal from the airwaves. CCTV is inaccessible by any outside receiver not directly tuned in with the hardware, therefore eliminating the threat of data corruption or theft.
At System Force IT we continue to push the boundaries of CCTV by investing in the latest technology ensuring that all are CCTV products are class leaders.
The limits of CCTV are constantly extending; by using a Digital Video Recorder (DVR), the information gathered through the Camera is stored on a hard drive, making it accessible for replaying when necessary, emailing and also sending through SMS, thus making it more effortless than using a Tape system.
A DVR is the recording device which stores all the images onto an internal Hard Drive from up to 32 CCTV cameras and view all 32 on a display at once. The DVR will take analogue images from a CCTV camera, digitise them and store them electronically. The most common media for storage is a hard disk drive as used in most PCs’, however CCTV’s can also be stored on a standalone black box.
The DVRs can be controlled at any location worldwide. Any recordings can be played back through the Internet using Internet Browser or Client software, this allows you to view your premises from anywhere in the world. Additionally, any PTZ cameras can be controlled remotely, over the internet.
CCTV on a PC DVR has the following advantages:
  • The software allows many configurations for monitoring e.g. quad display
  • Records in real time, simultaneously from all cameras
  • Time and date stamping with motion detect
  • Alert wizard, send email with photo or video clip,
  • Mobile phone alert with voice,
  • SMS alert
  • Audio alert
  • MMS alert
  • Remote monitoring from another PC through Client Software, Internet Explorer or Pocket PC
  • Connect to Alarm panel
  • Low cost all-in-one solution does away with the need for separate motion detect, splitters, quads or multiplexers.
System Force IT believes this technology is at the forefront of CCTV technology, allowing many companies to record and retain images for the purpose of crime prevention. Being able to access your premises worldwide, gives you a peace of mind that you’re always protected.
