IP CCTV installation
An IP CCTV installation allows you to monitor your CCTV security systems on your smartphone or any other internet-enabled device, from anywhere in the world. You can also:
- lock / unlock doors
- adjust your heating and lighting
You can now see who is arriving at your front door before they knock and allow them access with a simple press of a button.
HD CCTV on a budget
If your budget still doesn’t allow for IP, WLS can install HD CCTV cameras using your existing analogue cabling, allowing for further savings on time and cost. There are lots of different camera types for any environment, be it indoors or out. All you need is an HD Digital Video Recorder (DVR), 1080p cameras, an LED screen and PSU (power supply).
Digital video recorders (DVRs) and network video recorders (NVRs) allow you to store massive amounts of data. This allows you to store far more frames per second, boosting the clarity of your CCTV footage. Both DVRs and NVRs can be searched locally and NVRs can be searched over your network or remotely via your Smartphone or other IP enabled device (laptops, tablets etc.) as well as on traditional monitors. Easy to use search options allow you to search by time and date, alarm activation and much more.
CCTV analytics helps you to harness the power of your CCTV system. Like remote CCTV monitoring, it can save on the costs of manned guarding. Many of the IP CCTV cameras we install now have basic (Hikvision) or even advanced CCTV analytics built in. CCTV analytics software identifies events such as unauthorized entry, vehicle movements and objects left in or removed from an area as potential threats and notifies you that they have taken place. It is also self-learning so it learns to tell the difference between genuine alarms and false alarms, saving you time and money. For more information, check out our blog.
Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR)
ANPR systems automatically identify vehicles by their number plates. You can use them in tandem with CCTV analytics to create access lists so that gates, bollards or barriers open automatically when an authorized vehicle approaches. Alternatively, you can remove the barriers altogether and create a ‘digital fence’ which simply notifies security staff when a new or unauthorised vehicle enters the site. This helps to create a more open, welcoming environment without reducing security. For more information, check out our blog.
CCTV video encoding & decoding
Video encoders and video decoders allow you to integrate your existing analogue CCTV camera installation with a new network or IP CCTV system. You get all the benefits of a network-based IP CCTV system without discarding existing analogue cameras and cabling. If your budget does not allow for a full IP CCTV upgrade in a single phase, we can upgrade your system in as many stages as you require.
