Video surveillance is a widely used technology within ESS systems. Video surveillance involves the use of cameras for watching or controlling assets. It is the process of video (with or without voice)Capturing, Transmitting, Processing, Viewing, Recording for the sole purpose of securing people and assets.
These systems use everything from simple switches to complex devices that detect motion, heat, glass breaking, or other nonstandard occurrences in the area to detect the presence of persons in secure zones. Intrusion detection systems (IDSs) can generate simple local or paging alarms or can be integrated with other systems to provide more active responses (e.g., turning on cameras or lighting).
The convergence of security systems like access control and surveillance onto the network places much of the responsibility for future security designs into the hands of information technology and communications (ICT) industry professionals. Therefore, as a corporate member of BICSI, our workmen are primarily trained and certified, and continuously retrained and certified in vendor-independent design, integration and installation of BICSI Electronic Safety and Security (ESS) Designer’s curriculum.
