I.P. security cameras are the most popular and effective surveillance solutions available. Whether you’re upgrading your old analog system or looking for a new security system for your business, CSI brings you commercial-grade high-resolution I.P. surveillance cameras that ensure you stay connected from anywhere you go. Modern I.P. cameras provide advantages over the legacy analog cameras. I.P. stands for Internet Protocol, and refers to a digital video camera that can send and receive data via a computer network, as opposed to sending a feed to a Digital Video Recorder (DVR).
Our camera partners are proven and used in thousands of applications - both large and small. We have a superior range of high definition indoor and outdoor IP cameras that are designed to wirelessly connect with your security desk, video wall, smartphone, tablet, or PC to ensure real-time video monitoring from any location in the world.
Analytics is software which allows your network to flag “events” that occur in the cameras' field of vision. This could be anything from motion detection to missing objects to tampering with the camera itself. Instead of poring over hours of footage, your network can tell you exactly when these events occurred and point you right to them. CSI partners with manufacturers that provide a broad and complete product line in the industry so each customer's specific needs are met.
VIDEO RECORDING DEVICES
A Network Video Recorder (NVR) is a specialized computer system that includes a software program that records video in a digital format to a server. An NVR contains no dedicated video capture hardware. However, the software is typically run on a dedicated device, usually with an embedded operating system. Alternatively, to help support increased functionality and serviceability, standard operating systems are used with standard processors and video management software. An NVR is deployed in an I.P. video surveillance system.
The thermal camera technology may not be needed across the board, but can be critical to an installation where remote detection of objects is imperative. This type of camera produces higher resolution images that allow its analytics to identify a threat and determine its viability prior to alarming personnel. This type of camera is becoming a more vital part of a comprehensive security package.
Video Management Systems (VMS) are the administrative tool of the complete video system and provide much more than the traditional viewing and replaying of video streams. It is the management portal for all the video components; such as assigning viewing rights to end users, setting the recording parameters for individual components, defining alarm conditions and reporting structures, and much more. A VMS provides value to the end user by allowing administrator authorized individuals to perform their job by providing real time or forensic analysis of the video. With a correctly designed VMS, the system administrator is able to prevent viewing or access to confidential areas. Importantly, it frees up the administrators time by allowing other authorized individuals to safely perform functions previously performed only by the system administrator.
