The amount of storage space is dictated by how large the hard drive is inside the Dvr. The more cameras you have the larger hard drive you will need. A typical setup would be between 15 and 30 days recording time, anywhere between 500gig to 2 terabyte hard drive. There are larger hard drives available to get storage for over 6 months in some cases. Another factor in determining storage capacity in your Dvr is the frame rate at which the Dvr is set to.

How do remote view security cameras work?

There are many types of remote security cameras and many ways to view the cameras remotely. There are a few methods for making your security camera “remotely viewable,” however; the key ingredient for all of them is the idea of Internet Protocol or networking. Although there are several possible variations for capturing, sending, and storing the camera’s signal the basic process works like this.

An IP security camera system works by converting the camera’s video signal into a digital file that can be transmitted via a networking system. Depending on the type of system, the signal, by way of the local network, can even be sent to the internet making the security camera remotely accessible from anywhere internet is available.

Many cameras connect to a DVR or Digital Video Recorder system. They do this by a physical connection through a cable or by utilizing various wireless technologies (similar to the wireless technology used by wireless computer routers and receivers). Most wireless cameras have a useful maximum range of approximately 300 feet.

Regardless of how the camera’s signal is transmitted, it is normally transmitted to a personal computer, DVR system, IP video server, or directly to the internet. Streaming technology allows for the digital data to be transmitted and viewed in real time, while maintaining small file sizes to prevent overloading the network. Personal computers, DVR systems with specific, dedicated video networking circuits, and IP video servers can each be utilized to do this “file processing” work and transfer the final product to the LAN or internet.

Once the video signal has been prepared by the system and has reached transmission to a LAN or the internet, viewing opportunities are seemingly endless. The camera, video system, or IP video server comes with software that prepares the signal and provides software applications for viewing. Based on the file type and application software, the camera can be viewed remotely in a variety of ways.

Some of the easiest remote viewing camera/systems/software allow the user to view the camera using an internet web browser. In addition to using personal desktop computers, you can also view your security cameras remotely using just about any personal communication appliance, That means you can view real-time, live images from your camera(s) using a laptop computer, cell phone, or even a PDA. In fact it will provide an alert to the user via e-mail if the camera has detected motion and has started recording activity.

Remote viewing expands the possibilities and capabilities of security cameras In various ways. The user can check their cameras at work or while on travel. Constant monitoring systems can be installed and signals transmitted to a remote 24/7 monitoring service that can alert the user of any activity or suspicion. The possibilities are forever becoming endless.

How do motion Detection cameras work?

How Motion Detection Cameras Work

First off, let’s examine the term “CCD”. This stands for “charge-coupled device”. A CCD is a silicon chip with a surface that is divided into light-sensitive pixels. When light hits these pixels, tiny electric charges are generated. With enough of these pixels, you can get a fairly high resolution image. With adequate “sensitivity” (a term to be defined further down in this article), you can detect motion even in a dimply lit room.

Initially designed as a memory device, CCD became a good choice for image sensing because of its ultra sensitivity to light. Astronomers used the technology because it was as much as 100 times as sensitive as film and allowed previously invisible objects to be viewed.

Digital cameras can use CCD or CMOS (complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor) circuitry. However, CCD produces higher quality images. Thus, security cameras generally use CCD technology.

The difference between digital cameras and security cameras is in their basic way of working. Digital cameras store images when you tell them to. Security cameras only provide images (save and transmit them) when they detect motion. And motion detection is basically the process of comparing sequential images and determining whether the differences between them represent motion. If there are significant differences between two consecutive images, the cameras “conclude” that there has been motion within the camera view. They do this based on a couple important settings — sensitivity and percentage.

Most, if not all, surveillance cameras will give you the option of selecting a particular area within the viewing screen to be monitored. In other words, you can say that you only want to detect motion in one area — say the door or window.

There are two types of image changes that can occur. We can have an overall change in the pixels as we would if the lights in the room went on or off. If the room has windows through which incoming light will enter, you probably don’t want to generate motion detection photos just because the sun is setting. So, you can select a “sensitivity” setting that provides a contrast setting and determines how much of a change should be reported.

You can also select how much of a change in your overall viewing area or within one or more sub-areas of interest represent motion.

10 Ways your Video security system will pay for itself at your Commercial Business

cameras 1

Here are 10 ways your video security system will pay for itself:

1.Deter Criminals
One of the primary benefits of a video security system is to deter a criminal act from ever happening. Well placed cameras will give would-be criminals reason for pause, or send them looking for locations less prepared.
2.Prevent Theft
According to recent retail industry studies, the average small business loses $50k per year. And given the current economic conditions and ease at which criminals can move stolen products, risk of both internal and external theft has skyrocketed. It’s proven that a simple video security system can easily cut that figure in half.
3.Improve Productivity
Workforce productivity is reported to be the biggest cost businesses face today. Security cameras help to keep people on their best behavior when you’re not there, and enable a manager to monitor work habits on his own schedule.
4.Reduce Liability
Many criminals look to benefit by making false claims against companies. Lacking evidence to defend themselves, businesses literally get robbed blind with zero recourse. Video security is an effective deterrent of this criminal activity, and can contest these claims should they occur.

NOTE: False claims often stem from employees reporting incidents outside your security system’s field of view. We recommend that businesses augment their traditional video with covert cameras, so no one knows where safe havens for both crime and false claims are, and where they are not.
5.Protect Intellectual Property
Your unscrupulous competitor would pay dearly to know your company secrets. Strategically placed cameras can help prevent those with access and intent to stealing your intellectual property think twice.
6.Manage Remotely
Many video security systems feature software capable of viewing multiple facilities from a single location. This can dramatically reduce your equipment expense and management overhead costs, and allow managers to oversee company wide operations despite geographic and time challenges.
7.Enhance Customer Experience
Many retail businesses use their video security systems to study customer shopping habits, optimize store traffic patterns, improve product placement, and ensure a positive customer experience. More effective employees + increased sales + satisfied customers = one happy manager.
8.Streamline Operations
Video is commonly used in manufacturing or fulfillment environments to monitor equipment and quickly identify problems that may cause delays or bottlenecks. Video is also used to provide valuable insight into process effectiveness, and to make sure a business or operation is appropriately staffed.
9.Validate Alarms
Business owners and managers alike lose hours of sleep responding to false alarms that their business has been broken into. With a networked video security system, validation is just a mouse click away and you can get your sleep or enjoy your vacation.
10.Deliver Peace of Mind
Ultimately, business managers and homeowners are simply looking for peace of mind protecting their assets and providing a safe and secure environment for employees, friends, and family. And in the event of incident, knowing they are empowered to bring the offender to justice something only a video security system can deliver.
