Recently, I got redeployed to the security section of a university in Florida and was assigned to take care of a system of cameras. Generally, what I should do is monitor feeds from security cameras which are set up all over the school stadium, including those at the entrances as well as hallways. Considering that I had never ever dealt with surveillance systems which cover such a significant scope, I made a decision to learn a lot more about them.
Surveillance systems are typically composed of a number of video cameras along with a multiple-channel DVR. This kind of DVR can support from 4 to as many as 16 cameras. Considering that all the video transmissions are saved into it, this DVR connects all the footage in one structure for better observation.
A number of surveillance systems store the video recordings on the hard disk drive of a standalone DVR. Different designs can input the video recordings at a built-in USB recording unit.
There are those that possess motion detection-enabled recording, which implies that the DVR only captures movement to help save disk space. This function will also help save me time in the long run when there will be a need to play a pertinent recording again.
I also discovered two kinds of surveillance systems, wired and also wireless. According to the guide book, the university makes use of a 16 channel wireless DVR system. This configuration was less expensive because it was purchased as a set and it was much easier to install, also.
An identical monitoring system is further used in the university main hall and at the faculty building although I’m not assigned to those areas.
Seemingly, these types of surveillance systems chosen by the school administration consist of wireless cameras that are simpler to reposition and set up in different places. Wired cameras, that have nonstop power supply, are provided also.
These color bullet cameras dispersed all over the university stadium are tiny and barely noticeable. Given that they are day/night cameras, they are great for 24/7 surveillance and can record video recordings clearly even during evening.
