Diving into IP Camera

Posted on Sat/11/2014

Taking as a challenges before they become problems is always a smart approach. In the security world, when a company is making the leap from installing traditional, analog, CCTV cameras to IP Cameras, this “forward thinking” strategy is all the more wise.

As a Security Systems integrator, we know this from our experience. Having made the transition from Analog CCTV to IP integration several years ago, Shameer Abdul Razak, Our Security Systems Engineer, remembers the learning curve well and chimes in on what a company will likely encounter during a similar transition and how to prepare for success.

Lack of Network Knowledge

“The most common issue in the security world into was a lack of network knowledge,” Shameer said. “Most of the companies they don’t have techs that understood networking; yet all of a sudden, they have to deal with Ethernet rules, the constraints of Ethernet and specific cabling requirements. Many times, we also had to provide network switches as part of the project scope. Because these skills directly affected the scope of work, we quickly realized that having networking knowledge would be critical for conducting effective site surveys, creating accurate estimates and designing project plans.”

Solution: Bolster your project team with technical experts in network design. Some IP Camera manufacturers like SEECAM offer expert network design partners through their professional services offering.

Defending the work

After the project plan is defined and implemented, new challenges can arise, especially when considering that:

  1. Networking issues always complicate the installation.
  2. IP video surveillance systems are typically installed on separate VLANs that require special switch configuration.
  3. It is difficult to determine when a problem is on the network (e.g., a configuration issue) versus somewhere else (e.g., IP cameras, cabling).
  4. IP video surveillance contractors have limited control over the network.

“Every integrator needs the technical ability to defend their installation when networking issues arise”

Solution: Make sure your field project team includes technicians— or trusted contractors—that are savvy with IP networks and switch configuration, and can interface with network vendors, installers and IT staff to identify and troubleshoot network issues.

SEECAM NV-WDR602001B - Outdoor Security IP Camera

Posted on Fri/10/2014

A premium outdoor IP Security camera, the NV-WDR602001B uses a 1/2.5" 5.0 Megapixel color Sony CCD and low illumination technology with Wide Dynamic Range(WDR) up to 120db, is designed for medium-to-long range surveillance.

A 2.8~12mm manual zoom varifocal lens @F1.4, lets an Angle of View up to 91 ° ~ 21 ° the user concentrate on near or far points of interest. Video quality is kept consistently high during the day and night thanks to SEECAM Security Systems. It have 42 IR LEDs with a range of 20-30Mtr, and a mechanical IR filter that eliminates focus shift between day and night mode.
