What are CCTV and Alarm Systems, and how do they help?
CCTV systems are video cameras installed around the business so that you can record and view your business premises any time of the day or night via either a computer or mobile phone device. Features like; Face Detection, Intrusion Detections, Line Crossing Detection, Motion Detection, Object Removal Detection, Privacy Mask, Smart IR (Infrared), Smart Playback and Smart Tracking Function, let you see it all from anywhere in the world and know when something is happening at your business when it shouldn’t be.
Intruder Alarm Systems have the main control panel connected to sensor devices like motion detectors or door sensors. Motion detectors detect and moving objects in the building when the system is turned on or armed, and the business is vacant. Door sensors are made up of two parts, which form a circuit when kept parallel to each other.
When the alarm system is armed, if any motion is detected or circuits are broken, it will trigger the alarm, warning the intruder the have been detected and alert the monitoring service or your phone via an app.
