Your IP Infrastructure Company
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems are used to monitor and protect buildings, property, and possessions at all times, giving you peace of mind that your valuable assets are guarded and safe. They use cameras focused on a targeted area to transmit signals to a specific place. They can be set up to run continuously, be turned on and off by an operator, or be automatically triggered when something like movement is detected.
At Activo, we work with you to design the integrated video surveillance solution suited to your needs, whether you’re developing a new system or need to retrofit an existing one.
We provide both analog and IP CCTV cameras:
We offer a variety of storage solutions, including on-site commercial hard drives and off-site cloud storage. Different analytics tools and options also give you a better sense of what’s going on (motion detection, people counting, facial recognition, etc.) and help you to respond appropriately (detecting intruders, informing customers about promotions, prompting recording, etc.).
In essence, the resolution tells you how much visual information your security camera will be able to capture. The higher the resolution, the more and better you’ll be able to see. You’ll also be able to do more with the images, zooming in without causing blur or distortion.
The reality is that, depending on how you’ll use it, not everyone needs the highest resolution surveillance camera. High resolution cameras can be costly, due both to the initial cost of the device as well as subsequent costs (hard drives and recorders that can handle the increased load). If you only need to survey a small area like an office or entranceway (versus a larger property), a lower resolution IP or analog camera might be suitable for you.
This will depend on both the type of camera you have as well as your personal preferences. The most popular option for primary storage is an on-site hard drive, though it’s not uncommon to use an off-site source (like a public or private cloud) for back up.
In terms of size, the type of camera and the resolution it boasts will be the main determining factor here. The higher the resolution, the more storage you’ll need to handle the increased data it gathers.
This is tied primarily to the resolution of your camera. Like with storage, the higher the resolution, the more bandwidth you’ll need to capture and process the data.
Analytics options can include:
In some situations (like high-profile security applications) you might need three to four of these analytics tools included with your CCTV system. For more low-key surveillance, you might only need one or you might not need any. This will vary depending on your needs.
We build your network, putting the necessary hardware, software, network, and controls in place to make systems work harmoniously together.
The Age of the Information Society is turning disparate platforms into interconnected, interoperable, and smart networks. We work with you to ensure you are able to take full advantage of emerging trends.
Our highly trained and certified technicians monitor, maintain, and enhance your networking infrastructures throughout their lifecycles—saving you time and money while minimizing risk.
