Surveillance Cameras - Overview

Home > Surveillance Cameras > Overview


In today's society, video surveillance, also know as CCTV (Close Circuit Television) has become commonplace. Both public and private sectors have taken advantage of video surveillance and the benefits such systems have to offer. Systel installs surveillance systems for retail, commercial, industrial, educational, construction sites, and more.

Over the last couple of years the technology has improved tremendously by becoming digital. Digital video surveillance offers better picture quality, better remote access and easier retrieval and viewing of video and audio events than the predecessor analog systems. Today's digital surveillance systems have incorporated many advanced video analytic features allowing such capabilities as face recognition, license plate recognition, visual automation and advanced intruder detection/warning when a perimeter has been penetrated. The latest trend in video surveillance is network based surveillance via IP cameras and web servers. POE (Power Over Ethernet) and IP cameras as well as web servers can utilize existing Ethernet infrastructure reducing installation time and cost tremendously. Either hybrid DVRs (Digital Video Recorder) or NVRs (Network Video Recorder) can than be utilized to capture and process the images.

At Systel we offer the latest surveillance technology coupled with superior service. We take great pride in offering a broad range of surveillance system technology and solutions. We design and install systems with license plate recognition, POS (Point of Sale) interface, building automation, face detection and more.

There are just about endless types of cameras to choose from, such as night vision, vandal resistant, wide angle, wide dynamic range, PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) and IP cameras.
