For instances where you need to capture multiple angles from one location, a multi-directional camera is the best fit. Rather than having four cameras mounted at a particular location, a single camera housing can accomplish the same task with only one Ethernet connection to your network switch or network video recorder. The model shown in this image is made by Hanwha (formerly Samsung), it includes four 5-megapixel camera sensors which can be individually adjusted to your specific application. Imagine a hallway crossing where four separate hallways meet, rather than have a camera for each hallway, this component can be mounted at the cross point with a camera dedicated to each hallway. One housing, one connection.
Video Management Software
For clients who require video management software to monitor their surveillance cameras and footage, most software programs can be quite convoluted and difficult to learn, that is until Hanwha released their new simple management software called WAVE. WAVE is an IP video management platform that allows users to create IP video surveillance solutions tailored to any type of project, usable by anyone and on any device. It is simple to setup and use, yet a reliable video management software designed for you. Camera shots can easily be dragged into a layout and saved. If there is a particular section of the camera shot that you want to focus on, like a door or valuable merchandise, use the zoom feature to focus on that particular section of the shot. Want to search for identified motion in that zoomed frame as well? No problem. Never before has video management software been so easy to use.
Most existing surveillance systems are not used to their maximum potential and analytics is a major feature that is often left behind. Analytics can be used to make your system more intelligent which in turn makes your job easier and your business or residence safer. There are many features analytics can provide, such as motion detection, perimeter crossing, unusual human behavior, head counting, alert triggering, and much more. Even with an integrated surveillance system, undesirable activity can still take place without constant human monitoring, that’s where analytics help in doing the work for you during every second of every day.
