Creative Security Dynamics (CSD) are a Newcastle - North East based specialist CCTV System installer covering the North of England and Southern Scottish regions.
CCTV security systems are considered to be the most effective method of reducing crime (“British Chambers of Commerce Business Crime Survey”).
Designed, installed, used and maintained correctly, a CCTV system can ensure that crimes against people, theft and vandalism are substantially reduced. CCTV provides its operators with the facility to identify potential incidents at the offset and thus enabling them to react therefore reducing the likelihood of a major incident taking place. Should this not be achievable our minimum expectations should be the provision of clear evidential material improving the chances of conviction.
The potentials for CCTV are endless. No sector, industry, profession or home owner for that matter, are immune to the potential benefits that a CCTV system could provide. Think about it! .... Then give us a call on 0191 2290595, we are here to help.
Analogue CCTV systems have been around for decades and are still being widely installed today. There are still technological advances being made with regards to camera performance (Video resolution, low light performance, noise reduction etc) however analogue recording devices such as Multiplexers and Time Lapse Recorders are becoming obsolete. These units are now being replaced by Digital Video Recorders (DVR's) which can provide constant, quality recording without the need to change/renew video cassettes.
Digital/I.P Based Systems
Modern Digital CCTV systems can be linked to anywhere delivering clear, live images reliably and quickly to help prevent crime. Remote, live viewing of cameras is achievable from any location on an existing network or via the Internet allowing systems to be monitored like never before.
Imagine being able to view your CCTV system whilst at home, at work, on holiday abroad, whenever, wherever, the possibilities are endless.
The rate of technological advances in I.P based systems, most notably camera performance is staggering. Megapixel cameras can now provide resolutions that ensure incidents are not missed and that any evidential material obtained is substantial.
I.P based CCTV systems also ensure a reduction in specific cabling requirements as the cameras can be connected directly onto an 'existing, suitable' Cat 5 or Cat 6 network. Creative Security Dynamics strongly believe that this solution is the way forward for large scale new installations and the sole path that this industry and it's ever growing demands will eventually walk, however, due to the current number of existing analogue systems still out there that require the installation of additional cameras and upgrades we believe that Hybrid systems currently offer the most flexible and cost effective upgrade solution.
Hybrid systems provide the user with the benefits of both Analogue and I.P technologies. A Hybrid Digital recorder can be installed in place of an existing DVR or Multiplexer/Video Recorder. In addition to this, future Analogue and I.P cameras can be added at any time. This provides and extremely cost effective upgrade solution with the added benefit of being able to choose the correct camera type for each application.
Infrastructure is the means of interconnection between the components of a system. In CCTV terms it relates to the use of cabling such as Coaxial, Twisted Pair or Fibre optic but can also include Wireless technologies.
The Remote Monitoring of a CCTV systems is an extremely cost effective security solution. Due to the current financial climate landlords, building managers, site owners and tenants alike are all trying to reduce ongoing costs. By remotely monitoring a sites CCTV, Fire Alarm and Intruder Alarm systems it is possible to in most cases to reduce manned guarding hours and therefore achieve considerable ongoing savings.
Creative Security Dynamics can revise your current security systems configuration to provide an easily managed and secure Remote Monitoring solution, we can even provide the secure and managed remote monitoring connections including Broadband, 3G and I.P.
Video Content Analytics (VCA)
VCA is the capability of automatically analysing video. Specific algorithms are used to analyse and identify occurrence's within the video content. These could be occurrences such as motion detection, motion tracking, people/vehicle/item counting, identification, behaviour or situation analysis. When an occurrence is detected it can be then be used to trigger alarms, reposition cameras, remotely report events or control third party equipment. This is a relatively new technology but it can greatly increase the functionality and effectiveness of a CCTV system and reduce the possibility of incidents being missed by operators.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)
ANPR uses optical character recognition to read vehicle registration plates. The information can then be used to allow/deny access, create time and attendance or muster reports, manage vehicle parking or purely for security purposes.
No matter how simple or complex your requirements, we will find the solution that best suits your budget and needs.
