Business owners and security staff can’t be everywhere at once. That’s why camera system installation is such an integral aspect of a comprehensive security solution. However, when it comes to commercial camera systems, not all security cameras are created equal.
Now more than ever, businesses are turning to technology to increase their facility’s everyday functionality. From high-speed data transfer to state-of-the-art life safety and physical security systems, IT networks function as the foundation of many essential tools for businesses, regardless of their industry, size, or scope.
DSC is proud to partner with Avigilon, an industry leader in CCTV camera technology, to offer their top-of-the-line security camera products for a variety of industries. Avigilon’s H5A camera line is a comprehensive security camera system that combines next-generation video analytics technology with powerful integration to give customers unparalleled proactive security.
Access control systems are an essential part of your organization’s physical security. These systems allow you to define and control who can gain access to certain spaces in your building. Access control systems utilize credentials to confirm the identity of individuals, which provides them customized facility access based on roles and rules defined by system administrators.
Proper physical security of businesses is the first line of defense against potentially dangerous threats to people, property, and assets. No matter the size, scope, or industry of a business, incidents (both internal and external) pose a serious risk to the safety and security of employees.
Developing and managing a comprehensive, fully integrated, and scalable physical security system requires more than just purchasing video surveillance cameras. It requires organizations to have people on staff with the knowledge and experience to identify and respond to issues before, during, and after they occur. Organizations that don’t have the resources to properly staff and support their own security operations increase their risk of not being able to adequately respond to a safety incident.
Thanks to some exciting new technology from Hanwha Techwin, video surveillance networks can be faster than ever before. Hanwha Techwin has released a new line of security cameras featuring support for H.265 compression. H.265 compression can move video data 50-80% faster than previous generation technology. By utilizing this technology, an existing security camera installment could support many more cameras, with vastly improved clarity.
The 2016-2017 school year is nearly upon us. With the new school year comes a brand new set of security compliance standards courtesy of State Bill 507. State Bill 507, or SB 507, was passed to provide an additional layer of protection for Special Education students. The bill mandates the standards and requirements for the placement of security cameras and microphones in Special Education classrooms. School administrators across the state of Texas have been working diligently over the past year to tackle the logistical and financial requirements of SB 507, which becomes effective this school year.
