Video surveillance systems, also called camera systems or CCTV systems, have gained popularity over the past decade. Systems Management Group is licensed, trained, and certified to design, engineer, install, and service most manufacturers’ camera systems. Video surveillance can be as simple as a couple of cameras around your property hooked up to a centrally located display for you to see what’s going on or multiple cameras inside and outside along with the capability of remote viewing from your laptop or smart device. Camera systems come in either analog or digital designs, with some manufactures having “tri-brid” technology allowing for both analog and digital cameras to ride on the same network. We will work with you on the design of your project to ensure proper equipment is specified and installed. Your internal network is an integral part of video surveillance system, especially if you’re installing a digital camera system or you would like to view your cameras remotely. We can inspect your network and provide necessary feedback on its capabilities.
SMG provides several different types of camera systems, ranging from a single standalone camera or a complete analog system to a networked multi-facility digital system. We will work with you to understand your needs and budget and design a system that meets all your requirements.
Analog camera systems have been around for quite a while, yet they still are popular. We install analog camera systems when cost is a contributing factor and there is no need for HD quality video. Most of these types of surveillance systems can provide you with remote viewing software and apps, and we can help you setup this option.
Digital camera systems comprised of the newest technology have quickly gained popularity and as technology has advanced, they have become significantly less expensive. SMG recommends digital camera systems for small business to enterprise level facilities since they are easy to network across the Internet and they are easily expandable. Digital camera systems also provide our customers with HD and UHD level video streams providing the best pictures available. Digital camera systems require a more robust network design than an analog system, and we will test and inspect your network for proper bandwidth to accommodate a digital surveillance system.
SMG provides virtual guard services for our customers. Virtual guard systems utilize HD cameras, microphones, and speakers to communicate with unwelcome visitors to your facility. Virtual guard systems allow you or our monitoring center to clearly identify and communicate with whomever is in the area, as well as notify the authorities should the need arise. Virtual guard systems are popular in areas like car lots and strip malls where traditionally you’d hire a guard service without the payroll expense. SMG is certified in virtual guard system design and will work with you to create a system that will provide you with the coverage you need.
Off-Site Video Monitoring
When you elect to have off site video monitoring, cloud technology allows you to keep your property and people safe without relying on a server or recording equipment. With cameras and an internet connection, you can upload your video to a cloud which is managed and stored by your service provider. A mobile viewing app allows you to access your video from anywhere.
