Nowadays, people are in demand of equipping anti – thief devices for their homes. In developed countries, the security and defense are tightened but in other regions, people still have to cope with social evils both day and night. Even though families raise their high awareness and are in high vigilance, they still want to have a HD Security Camera System to prevent house intrusion that may be dangerous to their lives.
In this article, I will help you to get more details about this system and show you how to set such a system.
- Details about the system
- Devices required
A basic security system (as known as protective system) is a combination of observing, displaying as well as controlling devices like a camera, a digital screen, and remote control respectively.
- Camera working
About the camera, it is disposed around the areas that need observing continuously. As soon as it catches images through its lens, data is produced, replacing a whole image.
- Controlling center
The controlling center will receive such data and process it. Then it helps to transmit the date through a cable to the screen. On coming to a receiving gate, data is once again converted into images to be shown.
It is widely known that a security system is applied to observe, inspect and alerting for the purpose of keeping safety for houses and every area. Some most common places where to use security systems are:
- Shopping center: market, supermarket, shops, stores, systems of agents and retailers
- Stations: bus stop, ATM location, train station, gas station, car parking zones
- Residential areas: apartments, hotels, houses, hostels
- Offices: stairs, elevators, basements, entrance gates, exit ways
- Public areas and constructions: roads, museums, parks and so on
As the thieves and the suspected can turn up anywhere, we need to have security systems everywhere. Even nowadays, observing cameras are set up in buses, cars, trains and almost all vehicles to prevent harass purposes of bad people.
- The system’s configure
A security camera system allows security guards and security personnel to observe a wide range of area with a view to controlling protected space more tightly.
The images sent from the cameras can be recorded as per the modes integrated with the devices. Images can be captured continuously, by time set or intermittently.
Whenever there is any unlucky happening, the safety guards will take full responsibility for reviewing and checking all the activities recorded by the cameras. In this way, they will be able to point the reason and cause to the happenings.
These days, this system is being innovated with a lot of technological software which is helpful for storing, reviewing as well as data backup. More importantly, the internet is used to help us to control the camera from a far position.
- Set up a security system
Now, it’s time for learning how to set up a HS Security Camera System. First and foremost, I will look at every device in details.
- Recording camera
Of course, the foremost device we need is a recording camera. Depending on the observing purpose, we will define what the camera looks like. Here are some common types of cameras that suit the most popular purposes:
- Color camera: used to observe in the normal condition which has the moderate brightness of both natural and artificial light.
- Camera day & night: as known as the infrared camera; used in a case that the light is not sufficient to observe clearly. Infrared rays will be produced automatically.
- Sweeping camera: cover larger space and give more images caught
- Camera using IP, CMOS, and CCD technique: cameras integrated with smart software to work more effectively, especially in the stage of transmitting data.
- Digital recorder
This is the indispensable equipment for the security system in terms of recording chains of images with continuous movements or videos. There is one interesting advantage that we can review every moment if we want on the grounds that this device has recorded all for us.
In addition, the video recorder is an intermediate device in the system and it links others such as alarming, entrance controlling or internet system. Like a camera, there are also several groups of video recorder as bellows.
- Digital video recorder: a special device for open systems which have connections to other system and it requires a remote control system.
- Recording card: used to connect a camera and a personal computer.
- Network video recorder: used to record videos through the internet
- Video cassette recorder: record videos than transmitting data to the cassette
- Devices to control
Devices to control are devices used to control cameras, especially the sweeping type. There are some parts of a controlling tool that we have to consider such as:
- Keyboard controller: used to control sweeping cameras or cameras that have the rotating base.
- Control matrix: integrated with the keyboard for more flexible control; used in important and large system.
- Simple system setting
There are several models to choose to set up a security camera system.
- Common model
There is one common model set up mostly in residential areas.
This system includes cameras that are mounted in the areas people need to control. We will base on the position characteristic to choose camera types. Some can use fixed camera and some use IR type.
Through a digital recorder, we can store images the review them anytime. For secure storage, we can have data backup in an SD card in our mobile phone or in our computers.
- Combined model
This is a system that combines many dedicated devices, including fixed, sweeping and zoom cameras. The system is controlled by the keyboard controller that helps us to observe on a larger scale.
Data from a camera is also transmitted to the digital recorder so that we can manage and arrange the data more suitable. In addition, observing through the internet is possible and convenient. Surprisingly, it is absolutely ideal to combine this system with fire and alarm system.
- Matrix model
Using a matrix system is more complex but really effective in managing or programming cameras. If you try and succeed in operating such a system, your can have more details from observing.
Like the above, a matrix system can connect sensor or alarm devices, depending on your purpose.
- IP system model
Many people vote this system for the most modern one nowadays. It is more flexible and can help users to expand their current observing area. It is also possible for remote observation and management.
Signals from a camera will be passed to a modem and stored in the computer. Therefore, you can observe and back up data more conveniently as long as you have the internet connection.
IP system is often set up in public areas such as parking zones and stations. Thanks to the wide range of observation, the system gives good results in inspecting, predicting and concluding.
In conclusion, setting up a security system is quite complicated and related to many devices. Having full of information will help you choose to buy good products. Then setting up will be easier to understand and operate.
