While this is a basic and sometimes effective precaution modern technology has dramatically enhanced the way we we're able to protect our assets. Access Control gives you a streamlined and efficient method to keep your premises safe.

 

Access Control Benefits

Record Assessment


An Access Control system gives you valuable digital information. This information includes a written history of every entry and exit to the building.

What is CCTV?

WHAT IS CCTV?

CCTV is a very common term in the security industry. You may have heard it, but wondered what the acronym stands for and what exactly CCTV entails.  This article will give you a brief introduction to CCTV and familiarize you with the way a CCTV system works.

A Definition for CCTV

CCTV stands for 'Closed Circuit Television.  So this is a system where the circuits are closed and all of the elements are connected directly. This differs from broadcast television in that the signals cannot be broadcast across airwaves.

Applications for CCTV

Security systems are probably the most well known use for CCTV. With the vast array of businesses and establishments using CCTV, the scope is extremely varied in the individual use of the system. Some of the most common types of business entities that need or want an CCTV installation are:

  • Banks
  • Schools
  • Casinos
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Industrial complex
  • Commercial Centers
  • And More!

The Camera

Cameras are the focal point of any CCTV system. Much like the human eye, it captures the picture that will be sent to the control center. CCTV cameras are typically not fitted with a lens. This must be added separately and screwed on the front of the camera. Additional modifications can in include focus and iris adjustment.

The Monitor

Once that picture is captured by the camera it needs to be reproduced at the control center. This is similar to a television receive except with the notable difference of not having tuning circuits.

Putting it All Together

In a simple CCTV system the camera is connected directly to the monitor by a coaxial cable and receives the power directly from the monitor. This is called a line powered camera. Multiple cameras can be added by utilizing additional outputs to the monitor.

These days it's common to have a video recorder as part of the CCTV system. This involves the addition of a video switcher which all cameras connect to. The switcher is then connected to the video recorder which in turn is connected to the monitor.

Halloween

Halloween Safety Tips for Arizona

Happy Halloween from your friends at Phoenix Surveillance. As a community service we'd like to provide a few timely reminders to help keep your little ones as safe as possible as they trick-or-treat.

STAY WITH YOUR GROUP


Children under 12 should be properly supervised by a responsible adult and children older than that should stick together

KEEP COSTUMES SAFE


Costumes should be flame-resistant, masks and shoes well-fitted to avoid trips and falls

STRANGER DANGER


Visit only well-lit houses, particularly ones that are specifically decorated for Halloween. DO NOT enter a home unless you’re with a trusted adult, and NEVER accept rides from a stranger.

TREATS


Do not eat any treats until they have been inspected by a trusted adult. Avoid home-made treats from strangers and pace yourself so you don't get sick.

WATER


Here in Arizona it's still quite warm. Be sure to bring water and stay hydrated the entire night.

NEIGHBORHOOD SAFETY


Use a flashlight to help your see others and others see you, look both ways before crossing the street, use sidewalks whenever possible, always remember to walk, and wear reflective tape on costumes and bags so drivers can see you
