Surveillance cameras are video cameras used for the purpose of observing an area. They are often connected to a recording device, IP network, and/or watched by a security guard/law enforcement officer. Cameras and recording equipment used to be relatively expensive and required human personnel to monitor camera footage. Now with cheaper production techniques, it is simple and inexpensive enough to be used in home security systems, and for everyday surveillance. Analysis of footage is made easier by automated software that organizes digital video footage into a searchable database, and by automated video analysis software (such as VIRAT or HumanID . The amount of footage is drastically reduced by motion sensors which only record when motion is detected.

Video surveillance cameras are becoming more popular and, most importantly, more accessible to the average person. Huge store chains or gated communities aren’t the only places than can afford the benefits of surveillance cameras anymore. They are available for your home and office needs, no matter how simple or how elaborate a setup you require.

Your home, your office, your store, your family -- these are just four reasons why you would want to purchase a video security camera. If you put your time, energy, and resources into these, why not take the extra step and insure what matters most to you? Video cameras designed specifically for surveillance give an extra measure of safety and security.

Types of cameras available for video surveillance

You have a broad range of video surveillance cameras available to you. Understanding the different kinds will make it easier to determine which one suits you best.

  • Fake security cameras – These are not actual cameras. They are a very inexpensive alternative to purchasing an actual system. While these cameras can act as a deterrent, should something happen, you will not have a record of it.
     
  • Covert surveillance cameras – These cameras look like regular items. A wall clock in a small store, a teddy bear in a baby’s room, a potted plant by the front door—each one of these could very easily be a surveillance camera. You can record without anyone knowing it.
     
  • Wireless security cameras – These offer more flexibility in set up. They are easy to install, can be moved easily, are often small, have no tell-tale wires, and are very discreet.
     
  • Wired surveillance cameras – These cameras are appropriate for permanent setup. If you have one location that you would like to constantly monitor and will not need it to be changed, a wired camera is an option. Some may have to be professionally installed.
     
  • Night vision security cameras – These are ideal for any low-light areas, not just for the night time. The camera records in black and white in order to capture images best.
     
  • Home surveillance cameras – When you buy a setup for home, you get a helpful system that often includes such bonuses as timers for your lamps and motion sensors to go with the wireless camera.

CONTROL SYSTEM

The LPR solution is an effective video security and parking monitoring solution that can enforce parking lot security. Many parking lots security are rated high risk due to their poor response to crimes and the common nature of parking lot incidents. Isolated corners or levels of a large lot make it difficult for security officers to patrol and monitor. To provide security and assurance to customers and employees, parking lots need high efficiency digital surveillance systems that provide live monitoring and continuous recording to enhance lots security and surveillance efficiency.

The LPR system provides high-resolution video monitoring and recording at good quality. When emergency intercoms are activated or panic buttons pushed, the parking attendants can judge the situation from the live view and respond correctly. The LPR is a reliable security surveillance system that is high on recording performance and low on maintenance.


RECOGNITION

LPR activates recognition process in two ways. One is by software video motion detection, which detects vehicles passing through the camera and illuminator zone. Second is by I/O activation, which the action triggers recognition and recording on I/O activation. The system supports two view modes including Camera Overview and Picture-in-Picture with ease of monitoring.

The GIS (Geographic Information System)

based central management system for GeoVision devices.

The vehicle tracking and remote location verification from the GV-GIS is made possible by the GPS receiver attached to GV-Video Server and GV-Compact DVR to constantly obtain the GPS data (vehicle coordinates and speed) from the satellite, and through mobile internet connection (e.g. UMTS, EV-DO, EDGE, GPRS, GSM, etc) to transmit the GPS data to the GV-GIS.

Besides real-time vehicle tracking, you can also monitor the location of cameras and the status of I/O devices from the DVR and NVR, without GPS functions for city surveillance.
