Many think CCTV systems are for spying on colleagues, family members, pets or even cars in your driveway or car park; and for playing back events after they happen. Yet this needs you to decide to check in on the system ‘now’; or to know that something has already happened. And this is ignores the most powerful and advanced capabilities of a modern CCTV system.
HD CCTV cameras have been around for years. 4k systems and 8 or 12MP cameras already produce crystal clear images. So, the latest CCTV technological developments have focused on improved real time proactive solutions. Camera analytics are more accurate, faster, and more capable than ever. With greater tools to filter false alarms, so that you notifications sent to you of intrusion events mean a genuine person and not an animal, tree branch or even fast-moving shadow. This also means that off site CCTV monitoring by our video receiving centre has become less cost prohibitive than in the past.
Smart CCTV cameras and analytics are also used to notify and connect with a range of other systems. From turning on lights, to automatically opening doors and gates upon identifying specific people and vehicles; from notifying security guards of trouble, or notifying you of a fallen family member; smart CCTV is so much more useful and proactive than just providing footage after it is too late or needing you to be constantly watching.
Thermal CCTV cameras have also become more accessible, allowing true perimeter protection solutions for homes and businesses at sensible price points. Whilst these can still be more expensive than a ‘standard’ camera they are capable of seeing in all conditions, even where traditional cameras can not. Thermal cameras really are a viable solution in most cases where reliable notifications of intrusions are needed. Thermal works well to protect fence lines, large enclosures and most perimeter situations; as well as allowing you to cover areas with natural shadow points and dark spots.
There are so many benefits to smart CCTV, including lone worker protection and loss prevention for businesses; pet or elder family member monitoring for home owners; a very cost effective permanent security presence without needing a 24/7 guard; or just simply reliable peace of mind that you will be notified if something happens so you don’t need to be glued to your phone.
