Video Surveillance Equipment

SUS Global Enterprises Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV)

From IP cameras and Closed-Circuit Digital Photography (CCDP) to wireless CCTV equipment, SUS Global Enterprises security agents operate digital surveillance systems throughout the United States. Since the 1990s, video surveillance has been spreading and under the Homeland Security Grant Program cities are also helped to install surveillance camera networks, but the employment of the adequate security guards is still crucial since technology has low discriminating power and often generates false positives.

With the advancement of new technologies and biometrics, computer-controlled Video Content Analysis (VCA) already has the capacity of environment identification and automatic classification to add to the effectiveness of CCTV cameras in suspicious behaviors detection and post-event forensics, individual, traffic, equipment, material, and crowd control. Besides, events like video loss, lens defocus and others are more easily handled.

CCTV with facial recognition system help track people on a map without analyzing hours and days of film that might present a breach of civil liberties and in some cases, we advise on implementing people counter systems to identify objects like human beings and count people passing pre-defined areas. Whatever the case, our video operators do possess either training, a video operator license or both, and we respect our clients’ decisions. Furthermore, because of the cost, each entity determines how and for what time to retain images and videos produced by the CCTV systems.

What is CCTV Equipment

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is a TV system in which signals are not publicly distributed but are monitored, primarily for surveillance and security purposes. Placed strategically, the main types of security cameras we work with are bullet, dome, indoor, outdoor, wired, wireless, wire-free, and smart cameras.

Coordination with Law Enforcement

You may think that private CCTVs are easy to install when you have some technical background, but the truth is that you can get in serious troubles since CCTVs are strictly controlled by the law. While an average security system installation would cost you about $1500, plus the cost for equipment and cameras, we help you stay safe while respecting neighbors exactly determining how the Data Protection Act or Harassment Laws are applied to your property. Generally, you don’t need planning permission for domestic purposes or a commercial property unless previewed for a conservation area, public space or a listed building. Licensing is required for all licensable activities carried out.

Signs for CCTV

As of January 2019, there is no law for installing or operating CCTV cameras nor for placing CCTV signs on domestic premises. Video evidence being admissible in court regardless as to whether one informs the subjects or not. In some states, visual recording may or may not be acceptable, however, audio recording may or may not be legal.

Using CCTV on business or commercial premises where people might be recorded requires that: 1. you notify the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on the purpose and how you’ll be using the CCTV and the data collected; and 2. you inform people by displaying signs, which must be clearly visible and readable.

Dome Security Cameras
Dome Security Cameras

Dome cameras are named after their particular dome shape which is designed so that it is difficult for onlookers to tell which way it is facing and it cannot  be manually repositioned or knocked off to look in another direction. They are an adequate choice for both businesses and homes since they are easy to install, occupy less space, are less visible and more customizable compared to bullet cameras. Dotted with a rotating capacity, mounted on a wall or ceiling, indoors or outdoors, their wide angle resolution ranges from 1080p to 4k Ultra-HD, and they might include IR night vision or be rated weather-resistant IP66/IP67. Vandal-proof dome cameras are encased in a plastic protective cover and are suitable to be mounted lower like in cars, buses, retail stores, banks, bars, hotels, restaurants, and homes.

The inconvenience is in the fact that one has to adjust the camera and they are generally equipped with smaller lenses that serve better for a short-distance view.

Bullet Security Cameras

Bullet Security Cameras

Usually mounted to the side of a wall, a bullet camera is long and cylindrical and seems like the barrel of a gun or a rifle bullet shell. They are sometimes called “lipstick cameras” since they have a protective tip that shelters the lenses from glare and weather. With a weatherproof design and within a protective casing, they are larger in size, with better-equipped lenses and most of the time also have night IR illuminators and/or varifocal lenses. If a mounting bracket is present, it can additionally allow the bullet camera to swivel horizontally and vertically to get the best field of view.

Used for long-view range and high-quality viewing, bullet cameras are preferred for outdoor applications, usually on backyards or parking lots, and are one of the best ways to deter theft for large areas.

The downside, if within reach they can be more easily knocked off or manually turned to point in another direction.

Wireless vs. Wired

Wired, Wireless, Wire-free Cameras

Wired security cameras are the most common ones and are directly connected to a DVR or NVR recorder through a router and an internet connection. In some cases that require a separate power cable, there may also be wireless IP cameras that collect and stream data over a wireless network.

Wire-free cameras are battery-powered and 100% cable-free. Wire-free security cameras are the easiest to install, and security footage is stored in the cloud. Nonetheless, batteries still require charging, testing, and replacement.

Drone Security Cameras

Security drones are used for forests, mountains, and agricultural or other large areas that require regular air monitoring. Intelligent flight systems that can effectuate autonomous flight, make long-range decisions for path planning around obstacles (satellite positioning and advanced computer vision), fly backward (IR and ultrasonic sensors), and capture real-time, first-person video, pictures and telemetry data, they can be precisely maneuvered and positioned thanks to propellers and in-built camera/s. Flying a drone requires flight responsibility and that it is registered and identified with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Additional state and local requirements may apply. There are also anti-drone security measures our consultants can look into further for you.

IP Security Cameras

IP Security Cameras

An Internet Protocol camera (IP camera, webcam or netcam) receives and sends data via the Internet, 4G or WiFi. Unlike analog CCTV cameras, they require only a local area network and may or may not use a recording device. While some are totally decentralized and able to operate independently, others require a central network video recorder (NVR) to handle recording, video, alarm, and call management.

As with a CCTV/DVR system, if the video is transmitted over the public internet rather than a private network or intranet, the system potentially becomes open to a wider audience including hackers and criminals. This is why we strongly advise that you contract SUS Global Enterprises to ensure device security and updated security methods.
