UniTech Solutions NY is committed to provide the finest in electronic security protection & integration available in today’s CCTV market.Security Cameras are now universally featured in many public and private institutions, from a correctional facility to the convenience store. In commercial real-estate, reduce the costs of staffing and make it possible to maintain a constant watch on all areas of the facility.
CCTV has become so much less expensive over the years that both large and small facilities are able to install cameras as a deterrent against theft and robbery, a practice, which municipal authorities have adopted as a way of curtailing crime in public housing and even on city streets.
When thinking about a CCTV system, there are several factors to consider. The first question of any video system would be what the viewing requirements are. This includes details of the field of view such as where and when does it need to be seen and what type of lighting is in that area. Are you looking to capture theft or break in, monitor employees’ work habits, or visitor attendance? Will it need to be recorded? Does it need to be recording all the time or only when there is motion? How long the video should be stored for? These are things to consider when looking into a CCTV system. How the system will be used is an important factor when designing the correct system for your situation. If someone will be viewing the video live on site verses remote viewing or just storing the video so it is only viewed when a situation occurs will determine the type of recording device and head end equipment. Will the video only record on motion rather then 24/7, and how many cameras are needed will determine the amount of storage needed.
The next big factor is Resolution. Before video even reaches a recording device the quality of the picture matters. Cameras can vary in picture quality depending on resolution, if it is color or black and white, and day/night. Here at UniTech Solutions, we typically use High Resolution cameras or better in most situations, depending on customer needs. The cameras we use are top quality High Resolution. UniTech Solutions also carefully evaluates the needs for low light and Day/Night situations.
Advances in Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) technology are turning video surveillance equipment into the most valuable loss prevention, safety/security tool available today for both commercial and residential applications. The use of surveillance camera systems can alert you before threatening situations worsen, as well as provide you with an important record of events. Monitoring your home or business can be invaluable, in identifying and apprehending thieves and vandals.
The prevention or resolution of just one crime would be enough to pay for video surveillance system equipment many times over. Retailers use CCTV video Surveillance systems to monitor for shoplifters and dishonest employees, compile recorded evidence against bogus accident claims and monitor merchandising displays in the stores. Manufacturers, governments, hospitals and universities use video surveillance equipment to identify visitors and employees, monitor hazardous work areas, thwart theft and ensure the security of their premises and parking facilities. Most all video surveillance camera systems are primarily meant to deter, or detect illegal activity, as well as serve to ensure the physical safety of loved ones.
The difference between IP and analog.
The main difference between an IP camera system and an analog camera system is that IP systems are truly digital and offer incredible resolution and clarity. In most applications, one IP camera can do the job of several analog cameras.
Dome cameras are perfect for commercial applications where aesthetic is important and you want the cameras to blend in. Dome cameras can be used indoors or outdoors, and can be mounted on wall or ceiling. They do not require mounting brackets.
PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) cameras allow you to move the camera, zoom in and zoom out using a joystick or remotely via a mouse. you can set the camera up to patrol, move to an area based on motion detection or be triggered by an alarm sensors. PTZ cameras are best suited for Casino and Law enforcement applications
Box cameras are easily identifiable and are good theft deterrent because of their size and visibility. A big benefit to box cameras is that they allow you to pick the lens, housing, mounting bracket, etc. For example you can put a telephoto lens on a box camera and zoom in from a distance.
Fisheye IP Cameras
An IP Fisheye camera uses an ultra wide-angle lens that produces a 360 degree or 180 degrees panorama view. The Fisheye IP Camera is designed to be mounted on the ceiling, wall or ground. In most applications one Megapixel Fisheye camera can cover large areas up to 5,000 Sq Ft. With a Megapixel Fisheye camera you can do electronic pan/tilt/zoom
