Security & Survillance Solutions
An obvious benefit of video surveillance is 24/7 monitoring of both densely populated areas and remote, isolated locations. Whether used for live monitoring, recording, or both, video has proven to be invaluable for identifying individuals, spotting criminal activity, and recording accidents and other events.Being able to connect digital video cameras to computer networks and the Internet has increased the flexibility and accessibility for both collection and distribution of video data. Although this enables cameras to be installed in more locations, the availability of network ports and cabling is still a limiting factor when deploying video cameras in many locations.
Deodata Integrated Services Ltd in line with international partners have developed a wireless mesh network which eliminates most, if not all, of the issues associated with locations that are too difficult or expensive to wire. By providing a wireless network backbone, Our mesh networks enable cameras to be installed without pulling cable through walls, trenching for fi ber between buildings, or drilling holes for cables in older and historic buildings that were not designed for computer networks.
By being able to deploy cameras quickly and cheaply in indoor and outdoor settings, security professionals can extend safety services with minimal additional staff or installation costs. Video surveillance for temporary venues such as concerts, festivals, and sporting events can be set up and removed quickly to service many events. This provides maximum utilization of the equipment with minimal installation effort and expense at each location.
CCTV, Wireless Networks and Digital Video.
In the past, security and surveillance cameras were connected to centralized monitoring and recording facilities with hardwired coaxial cabling. Although analog closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras have provided affordable and reliable surveillance for many years, the combination of digital video and computer networks presented a number of major breakthroughs in surveillance technology.
Digital cameras enable much more flexible and efficient transmission and storage of video images. And unlike analog images that lose quality when copied or transmitted over long distances, digital video quality remains constant, making it even more effective for surveillance purposes. Newer digital cameras with Ethernet connections and support for Internet Protocol (IP) provide even more flexibility because they connect to standard computer networks. These cameras have their own IP addresses allowing them to be connected to and accessed from the Internet. Some even have integrated web sites making them accessible from any authorized browser. Optional remote control features such as pan, tilt, and zoom (PTZ) add to the usefulness of these cameras which in turn enhances security at surveillance sites.
Despite their significant advantages, IP cameras were still limited by how far their network cabling will reach. The ultimate in flexibility is to connect IP cameras to a wireless network so video surveillance can be installed virtually anywhere without cabling. Some cameras have a built-in Wi-Fi interface for connecting wireless to a nearby access point. However, because Wi-Fi networks do not provide the bandwidth and prioritization required for high speed video, wireless cameras are typically lower quality devices that are unsuitable for enterprise grade and public safety surveillance.
Though we still deploy analog cameras in some situations, depending on the budget of the client, but we strongly recommend the digital/ wireless cameras to our clients.
All in all, our surveillance system is very reliable and we carry out a monthly maintenance check on all our client to ensure that the system works to the clients satisfaction. Please contact our support team for site survey and recommendations.
