Security should play a significant part in our unsafe world. There are a lot of different types of security such as CCTV monitoring, alarm systems, guarding and so on. CCTV monitoring can be used together with two other types of security.
Security alarms are used by both individuals (private property security) and entrepreneurs (security of offices, shopping premises, warehouses, enterprises, etc.). If any intruders get into the object of security, special sensors will immediately detect them.
There are door opening sensors, motion sensors and so on. The alarm informs security forces (private security agencies) or law enforcement authorities about the intrusion in the guarded object. The signal alerts their desk and a special security team responds to the scene.
Security guards protect different types of premises such as warehouses, offices, enterprises, factories, people and so on. In other words, manpower is used for the security and protection of different types of places and people. People who ensure the safety of other people are called bodyguards.
The category of security depends on the type of the guarded object. Security has become of key importance recently. A lot of people are ready to commit a crime because of their bad financial situation. That’s why it is important to ensure the safety of yourself and your own property with the help of high-quality security.
It is necessary not only to hire special security guards but also to create an entire security network. One can guarantee absolute safety of your people and property only if the whole security system is well-planned.
The eye of the Omniscience
The best way to ensure safety of a private home is a CCTV system installation. Modern equipment gives a possibility to arrange a 24-7 surveillance not only inside the place but also around it. Nowadays, there tends to be 3 variants of CCTV systems. The system on the basis of a video recorder is one of them. It is reliable but has a low possibility of integration with other security systems. The system on the basis of a video recorder is considered to be the finished tool with the exact composition of functions which can’t be extended without high expenses (which is sometimes a necessary thing).
A system based on the computer and video capture cards is more flexible and scalable. However, it is necessary to purchase special software and allocate a special computer for these purposes. A usual computer equipped with different programmes and games can interfere with the work of a CCTV system. As a result, the system based on the computer turns out to be more expensive than the one which is based on a video recorder.
The third variant of a CCTV system is the one based on the computer and IP-cameras. The signals are passed via a network cable and network equipment is used instead of video capture cards. The possibility of integration with other systems and scalability are much higher than the other types, therefore the price of this type of equipment is also higher (especially the price of IP-cameras).
However, it is possible to save money if you think wisely. In particular, it is important to decide what exact result you are looking for. There is one type of camera (quite expensive), to recognise car number plates at night. There are cheaper types of these cameras for the purposes of just seeing a moving shadow figure of a suspicious person.
In brief, a client gets to choose what type of security they need. The specialists’ work is to install the cameras in all the necessary places, pass the signal to the places you have asked, do all the necessary work and teach you how to use the equipment. A CCTV system allows you to observe the picture in real-time mode. The most important thing is that you will be able to use it remotely being thousands of miles away from home.
Alternatively, you can install the screen in your office. Internet access allows people to get all the necessary information being at any place in the world and being away from home doesn’t mean the lack of control over the situation. Furthermore, it is possible to survey not only your home but also all the territory around and immediately inform the relevant authorities in case of danger.
