Top Reasons for Video Security Cameras in Kansas City Metro
- Deterrent – Video Surveillance serves as an effective deterrent. A thief will certainly think twice before targeting a home or business in the Kansas city area, where they know that a security camera is capturing evidence that can be used to identify them. It is therefore good to have signs posted that warn everyone that security cameras are in use.
- Peace of Mind – Perhaps the most important benefit of a video surveillance system is the ability of even just one or two security cameras, to let you know that everything is OK at your Kansas City Area home or business, even when you are away. You can use remote video surveillance to check on your pets, to see if your children arrived home from school or to see if an important package arrived.
- Apprehension – The video captured by high quality security cameras can help identify a criminal. In order to use the video as evidence in the Kansas City area, it is advised that signs be posted that inform visitors of the presence of security cameras and of 24/7 video recording.
- Cash Registers – Security cameras should be placed above cash registers to monitor the accuracy of check out processes. The transactions from the Point of Sale (POS) systems can be overlaid onto the video surveillance footage to make sure that the checker is ringing up items properly.
- 24/7 Professional Video Monitoring – Security Cameras can also play an important role in monitoring businesses when they are closed. A motion activated security camera can trigger our central station whenever motion is detected outside normal working hours. Our central station staff can view the video to determine whether or not a threat exists and contact the appropriate people or authorities.
- Video Alarm Verification – A Kansas City area alarm can be verified by the central station, before alerting the authorities to make sure the alarm is authentic and to help the authorities go to the right area of the property to find the intruder. This is done by pulling up live video from the security cameras when an alarm is received.
- Protect your Business – A security camera can also protect a business against fraudulent or inaccurate claims made by customers or employees. Video surveillance systems can record alleged incidents to determine what really happened. In order to do so, the cameras need to be positioned in the right locations and with good lighting so as to make sure that high quality video recordings are obtained.
- Safety – Security cameras can also protect Kansas and Missouri industrial customers by making sure that safety rules are being followed. Examples are whether or not fork lift rules are being followed, hard hats being worn, and access to certain areas only by authorized personnel.
- Quality Control – Products and machines can be remotely viewed by security cameras to make sure that products are being produced and packaged correctly
"You are amazing."
"I just got to the office and couldn't remember if I left the door open or not, so I checked my phone."
"you did absolutely everything you said you were going to do for the price quoted, explained things very thoroughly, technician was on time and very professional . . ."
Security Camera Considerations
- Quality – Most of us have seen the grainy, blurry security camera footage from a convenience store holdup somewhere in the Kansas City area. These low quality images can occur for a number of reasons, including security camera resolution, lighting conditions and the recorder quality. There are four different security camera recording standards, each with its own capabilities.
- Traditional analog security cameras, although touting resolutions of up to 700TVL, can be recorded at a maximum resolution (D1) of 480 TVL.
- A new standard called 960h is capable of using new analog security cameras and recording at a resolution of 700 TVL. This system can also record older analog cameras at the regular 480 TVL rate.
- HD-TVI is another standard that uses special security cameras to support recording at the true high definition level 1080p for images of up to 3MP. These cameras can still use the coax cable infrastructure left behind by traditional analog video surveillance systems.
- Mega-pixel IP security cameras are the next generation in video surveillance. Some of these security cameras have resolutions exceeding 10 mega pixels and some have advanced analytics for recognizing people and vehicles. These IP surveillance cameras can even operate over existing computer networks, although, due to the high bandwidth required, we often put in a separate IP video network for them.
- Lighting – Surveillance cameras need to be selected with the lighting conditions in mind.
- If your security cameras need to produce video in complete darkness, then infra-red (IR) cameras are a good choice. IR cameras usually have a ring of IR LEDs around the lens to illuminate the subject with nearly invisible light. These security cameras will specify a distance that the LEDs can illuminate to produce an acceptable picture. The video surveillance recordings from an IR security camera are black and white at night and color during the day.
- If you have low levels of lighting at night or need to see subjects over 75 feet away, a light amplification security camera is a good choice. These security cameras use advanced processing to maximize the available light to produce a color image, even in very dark conditions. These are often used in large warehouses, outdoor storage facilities, and parking lots.
- Security cameras are often also exposed to challenging lighting conditions such as bright lights shining at them at night, back lighting, shadows, etc. Surveillance cameras with features like wide dynamic range (WDR) and headlight masking, can be used in these situations.
- Wiring – one of the most fundamental considerations in the design of a video surveillance system is how to connect the cameras to the digital video recorder (DVR). There are three main ways to connect the security cameras:
- Coaxial Cable is the most common method of connecting the cameras. A special cable called Siamese, combines an RG59 coax cable for the video along with two power wires to power the security camera.
- Ethernet cable can be used to connect both traditional analog and new IP security cameras. For IP surveillance cameras the Ethernet connector plugs directly into the camera and can even power the security camera using something called power over Ethernet (POE). For connecting traditional security cameras, a small adapter called a balun is used to convert between coax and Ethernet.
- Wireless security camera transmitters and receivers can be used in cases where it isn’t practical to get a wire to your security camera from the DVR. It should be noted though, that the security camera and wireless transmitter will still need to get power locally.
