Digital Video Security Overview

Video Security is becoming more widespread everyday as a means of keeping track of employees, locations, entryways, and more. Originally designed to monitor safety concerns, video security is continually evolving making it the ideal solution for many types of businesses and home uses. Businesses use video security systems to monitor employees, to trigger alerts in case of fire or motion, and to watch over entrances to buildings. Video security is also used in retail stores to reduce shoplifting and in financial institutions and convenience stores as a deterrent to robbery. Parking lots and garages, remote areas on college/university campuses, and hospitals are also popular locations for video security systems. Selectron also offers a range of covert or hidden cameras to suit any need.

Why Digital Video Security?

There are four basic reasons why people want to use a digital video security system:

  • To help IDENTIFY perpetrators
  • To help PREVENT accidents or wrongdoing
  • To help PROTECT people and property
  • To help OBSERVE processes

Employee Theft = 48% of all Business losses.

Shoplifting = 31% of all business losses.
Robbery – Occurs every 46 seconds according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
Vendor Theft – Most businesses rely on vendors that leave products or preform services after hours.
Vandalism – Destruction of property usually done by known and police documented people.

Selectron currently liaises with the Bermuda Police Service several times a month to remove footage from our Residential and Business clients for reasons ranging from Burglaries to Serious Crimes.

Who can benefit from a Video Security System?

All these things and many more are possible through video security systems.

Small Businesses can prevent or identify shoplifters or burglars and keep an eye on the business from home. Sadly, today, employee theft is now higher in retail than customer theft and monitoring retail employees is becoming necessary.
Industry & Research can monitor processes as well as maintaining security surveillance.
Education and Government can keep an eye on trouble spots.

What do I need?

The basic components of video security systems are a security camera, a display monitor, and a recorder. In a large system, of course, there can be a number of security cameras and recorders. The days of using VCR’s and tapes are long gone now, today you will be provided with a computerised Digital Video Recorder (DVR) to cater for anything from four cameras for your house and up to hundreds for business purposes.

Selectron can offer two types of systems, the traditional Analog cameras and as the industry is changing and becoming more computerised, we offer high performance IP based camera systems, the advantage being very high resolutions and unmatched zoom quality.

We also offer Super low light cameras, pan/tilt/zoom domes that respond at a speed of 360 degrees per second or thermal imaging cameras that give an image in total darkness.
