Closed-circuit television security systems, known as CCTV, are quickly becoming part of history. These days, legacy CCTV systems can mostly be found in places such as airports, courthouses and the majestic city of London in the United Kingdom. Modern local businesses in Apple Valley and across the High Desert are increasingly turning to Internet-connected video surveillance, and this is a trend that is closely related to widespread smartphone use.
Surveillance for Apple Valley Businesses from Anywhere
Digital video is the fundamental technology that makes IP-based surveillance possible. Once video footage is digitized and turned into data, Apple Valley security managers can do a lot with it. First of all, video footage can be sent to a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet for remote monitoring on the go. Second, surveillance footage can be easily archived, organized and annotated with video editing tools; this makes it easy for security specialists to retrieve and analyze certain events.
Remote monitoring is one aspect of IP-based video surveillance that is very attractive to Apple Valley business owners.
Safety & Security for Apple Valley Businesses
With Apple Valley IP surveillance systems, the acquisition and installation cost of a network of cameras is very reasonable. This means that every corner of an office, restaurant, warehouse, or shop can be monitored from a mobile device at any time. Motion detection systems can still be triggered by stray cats, mice or during an earthquake, but false alarms can now be investigated from home and without having to drive out to the facility in the middle of the night.
Some of the equipment used for Apple Valley digital surveillance includes hybrid SDI DVRs, which allow for high-definition, HDMI output at 1080p. This is the type of system that is more suitable for remote monitoring from desktops, laptops, iPhones, iPads, Android-powered devices, etc.
