Fixed Network Cameras and Fixed Dome Network Cameras
Fixed cameras mean viewing direction is set once mounted. Field of view can be changed by physically adjusting the camera. A fixed dome allows for discreetness, as it is difficult to tell where the camera is pointed. A fixed network camera has a more traditional look, and is designed to act as more of a deterrent. Both are available for indoor and outdoor application, as well as with vandal resistant housing.
This type of camera enables a wide area coverage and great details when zooming in. The camera’s movement can be easily controlled by an operator, or it can be run in guard tour mode, where the camera automatically moves between preset positions. PTZ dome network cameras are available in outdoor-ready models for easy and reliable installation in tough environments.
A thermal network camera creates images based on the heat that always radiates from any object, vehicle or person. The cameras see through complete darkness and deliver images that allow operators to detect and act on suspicious activity around the clock in all conditions.
On the road? No Problem!
You can still check in on your home!
Network cameras and video encoders can be configured and accessed remotely, enabling multiple authorized users to view live and recorded video at any time and from virtually any networked location in the world. You can be sitting on the beach and quickly take a look at your cameras at home! Sometimes, when you are away from the office or home you would rather someone else take care of checking in for you, remote accessibility allows for a third-party company, such as our Monitoring Central, to also access the video feed. Traditionally, analog system users would need to be at a specific on-site monitoring location to view and manage video.
Our IP video surveillance systems make viewing your live video feeds, as well as recorded footage, a simple task from anywhere, at any time. As long as your network has an Internet connection, your system can be securely available to you from any web browser, smartphone, or tablet.
Nuagesight specializes in IP Video Surveillance, however often times, our clients have previously made a significant investment into an existing analog video surveillance system. In a case like this, a video encoder will allow you to keep your existing analog cameras, while transitioning to an IP system. The encoder acts as a bridge between the camera and your network, converting the analog video signal into a digital stream giving you the ability to integrate your old system into your new one.
High image quality
Imagine trying to watch a movie and pick out fine details when the movie itself is blurry, out of focus or low quality…you’ll never run into that problem with Nuagesight.
In video surveillance, high image quality is essential to be able to clearly capture an event and identify persons or objects involved. With progressive scan and megapixel technologies, a network camera can deliver better image quality and higher resolution than an analog camera.
Image quality can also be more easily retained in a network video system than in an analog surveillance system. Captured images are degraded with every conversion between analog and digital formats and with the cabling distance. The further the analog video signals have to travel, the weaker they become.
In a fully digital IP-Surveillance system, images from a network camera are digitized once and they stay digital with no unnecessary conversions and no image degradation due to distance traveled over a network. Also, digital images can be more easily stored and retrieved.
Event management and intelligent video
Video surveillance just got smart!
There are two major problems with constantly recording High Resolution Video; firstly, who has time to review the video that has been saved and secondly, where will it all be stored? Not to worry we’ve solved both these problems!
With Nuagesight’s advanced network cameras and video encoders with built-in intelligence or analytics you can reduce the amount of uninteresting recordings and enable programmed responses. Built-in features such as video motion detection, audio detection alarm, active tampering alarm & line crossing enable the network cameras and video encoders to constantly analyze inputs to detect an event and to automatically respond to an event with actions such as video recording and sending alarm notifications. Users can define the alarms or events by setting the type of triggers to be used and when.
Easy, future-proof integration
A concern that we often run into is adaptability; our clients are concerned about technology outdating itself, there is no need to worry about the future, we’ve got you covered!
Network video products are based on open standards and can be easily integrated with computer and Ethernet-based information systems, audio or security systems and other digital devices, in addition to video management and application software. This allows for updates if there are ever any technological advances that could benefit your system.
Scalability and flexibility
Two-bedroom home, condo developments, office buildings and everything in between…No problem!
A network video system can grow in size and complexity with a user’s needs. IP-based systems provide a means for many network cameras and video encoders, as well as other types of applications, to share the same wired or wireless network for communicating data; so any number of network video products can be added to the system without significant or costly changes to the network infrastructure. This is not the case with an analog system. In an analog video system, a dedicated coaxial cable must run directly from each camera to a viewing/recording station. Separate audio cables must also be used if audio is required. Network video products can also be placed and networked from virtually any location, and the system can be as open or as closed as desired.
In a financially limited environment such as the one we face now, it is always difficult to set a budget and more so to stay within it! Our systems are cost effective without sacrificing any quality!
An IP-Surveillance system typically has a lower total cost of ownership than a traditional analog system. An IP network infrastructure is often already in place and used for other applications within an organization, so a network video application can piggyback off the existing infrastructure. IP-based networks and wireless options are also much less expensive alternatives than traditional coaxial and fiber cabling for an analog system. In addition, digital video streams can be routed around the world using a variety of interoperable infrastructure. Management and equipment costs are also lower since back-end applications and storage run on industry standard, open systems-based servers, not on proprietary hardware such as a DVR in the case of an analog CCTV system.
Furthermore, Power over Ethernet technology, which cannot be applied in an analog video system, can be used in a network video system. PoE enables networked devices to receive power from a PoE-enabled switch through the same Ethernet cable that transports data (video). PoE provides substantial savings in installation costs and can increase the reliability of the system.
