Security systems


Security systems and IP surveillance solutions are more important than ever in today's world to ensure the safety of people and property. Network cameras are a crucial component in creating a seamless surveillance system. Modern IP cameras enable precise surveillance with razor-sharp images in real time. In addition, IP surveillance solutions can be integrated with smart home systems to further improve comfort and security in the home. For example, motion sensors can be used to automatically activate the lights or the alarm system. The networking of security systems and smart home technologies opens up a wide range of possibilities to make one's own home safer and more comfortable. Thanks to the latest technology, network cameras and IP surveillance solutions can now effectively help to minimise risks and protect your own home or business.

Interesting facts from the field of IP surveillance

Video surveillance system

What is an IP camera video surveillance system? What components does it consist of? What functions does it have? 

Surveillance systems have become indispensable today and reliably increase safety and security in public spaces, traffic systems, road networks, when shopping, etc. The number of surveillance systems for business and private purposes is increasing rapidly. 

IP cameras have become an indispensable part of video surveillance systems in recent years. Unlike conventional cameras, IP cameras provide pin-sharp images in real time and can also be controlled remotely. This makes them an effective way to monitor public and private spaces around the clock and quickly detect suspicious activity. Moreover, thanks to state-of-the-art technology such as motion detection and face recognition, IP cameras can also automatically trigger alarms when suspicious activity is detected. By integrating IP cameras into video surveillance systems, businesses, public institutions and private households can use an effective method to improve security and minimise the risks of break-ins, theft or vandalism. In summary, IP cameras and video surveillance systems offer a modern and reliable method to ensure the safety of people and property.

A classic IP surveillance system essentially consists of a camera, network infrastructure, recorder, video management software (VMS) and access via network or smartphone.

Network cameras

Network cameras come in different designs such as bullet, box, fixed dome and speed dome. Each design has its specific advantages and is suitable for different applications. Bullet cameras, for example, are robust and weather-resistant, making them ideal for outdoor surveillance. Box cameras, on the other hand, offer a high degree of mounting flexibility and can be used indoors or in places with limited space. Fixed dome cameras, on the other hand, offer discreet surveillance and are ideal for indoor use. Speed dome cameras, on the other hand, offer a fast pan and zoom function, making them ideal for monitoring large outdoor areas. Each of these designs also offers various features such as motion detection, face detection and automated alarms to quickly detect and respond to suspicious activity.

Careful camera selection is essential for optimal surveillance results. Will the camera be used indoors or outdoors? Are optimal recordings desired during the day and at night? What is the intended mounting height of the camera? What application is planned: e.g. simple monitoring of an area or detecting and identifying people?

Network video recorder

Network video recorders (NVRs) are an important component of video surveillance systems. They enable the recording and management of video data sent from network cameras. Modern NVR systems offer a variety of features, such as the ability to stream video in real time, search and play recorded video, motion detection, face detection and alarms. Most NVR systems also offer a remote access function to access video in real time and perform surveillance tasks remotely.

Is the network infrastructure in place? Have the cameras been carefully selected? Now the only question that remains is - where to put the recordings? 

One possibility is a so-called NAS system or an FTP server (File Transfer Protocol). But as a rule, an NVR - Network Video Recorder - is preferred. An NVR is available with 4 to 64 video channels. An NVR also simultaneously performs the function of a POE switch and is available with 4 to 64 ports.  

Whether NAS, FTP server or NVR - the available storage capacity is decisive and depends on the application. Planning the storage capacity is very important and should be set right along with the camera selection.  If you are recording 24/7 - 24 hours a day * 7 days a week - you will accordingly need a significantly higher capacity than if you are recording 8 hours a day * 5 days a week. 

We can also advise you on the choice of capacity.
