Video surveillance cameras keep a watchful eye on your home or business
It’s true: security cameras not only record intruders but actually deter them! For instance, a home with security cameras installed is 4 times less likely to be broken into compared with homes not equipped with security cameras.
According to a study from the Electronic Security Association, 6 out of 10 burglars typically avoid homes with security cameras. And ABC News reports that nearly 9 out of 10 Americans expect private businesses to install surveillance video to help police solve crime.
Now, ESSC can install reliable, high-performance, HD & 4K security cameras for residential customers as well as commercial facilities.
Installing video surveillance
In residential CCTV, our systems experts recommend installing home security cameras to cover your front door, back door, rear and side windows not in direct view of the street, backyard and side gates, and basement steps.
We can enhance video surveillance with live remote monitoring, activity alerts, cloud storage, panning and zooming capabilities, multichannel recording, and tamper alerts that send a signal when someone attempts to disable your camera. You can check on your home at any time using a web browser or mobile app.
In commercial CCTV, the video surveillance cameras and related hardware can be integrated with your existing computer network or installed as a separate, secure network. The main control equipment for network video cameras is typically located in a rack in the existing computer room.
ESSC uses either existing Cat 5E or Cat 6 cabling or will install new, certified cabling for network video systems. Multiport POE power injectors can be used to add power to your existing network without the need of a new switch.
