CCTV SYSTEMS CAN BE USED FOR SECURITY AND OPERATIONAL REASONS
CCTV cameras are valuable assets for security surveillance and operational management. They can be widely used in business for identifying potential accidents, monitoring machinery and industrial processes. They are great deterrent devices and can be integrated in various ways to perform desired tasks. Cameras comes in various video quality and performance specifications and it’s important to match the camera to the scene and the intended use. We at JPTek can assist from design to supply and install CCTV cameras in a professional way.
OPTICAL CCTV CAMERAS
Cameras are installed in general areas to provide overview images of facilities. Cameras are also installed at entrance and exit points of a facility to provide information of movement through these access points.
The use of video is by far the most popular and effective means of security surveillance, as it provides a quick and efficient means to confirm the details of a scenario – mainly real time images. It also serves as an extremely large data source, which can be effectively used by video analytics algorithms and artificial intelligence neural nets to provide automated detection and response.
Although the choice to use video may be an easy decision, choosing the type of video that best serves your detection needs and budget involves careful consideration. Specifically, the decision to use visible light (optic) colour cameras versus thermal cameras. This is dependent on many factors, including the use of each camera, the intent to automate detection with video analytics, detection accuracy requirements, operating environment, budget considerations, etc.
THERMAL CCTV CAMERAS
For surveillance scenarios where detection is paramount in all types of lighting and weather conditions, thermal cameras prove to have far superior performance over general optical cameras.
An advantage of thermal cameras is that they produce images based on radiated heat rather than reflected light. All living things and inanimate objects emit some degree of heat naturally, making them apparent to thermal imagers, even if the human eye (or visible spectrum cameras) may not be able to perceive them.
Thermal cameras also cover larger distances which reduces the amount of thermal cameras required to cover the entire perimeter. This also reduces the cost of camera poles, brackets and communication equipment.
No matter what perimeter you wish to protect, you deserve a reliable security solution you can trust around the clock, and in any weather and light conditions. A perimeter protection solution detects potential and real intrusion threats, and allows you to take quick action when something really happens.
Perimeter protection solutions gives you an edge where security starts, at the perimeter of the property. We are able to deliver a scalable and flexible solutions for perimeter intrusion detection. Using a combination of optical and thermal cameras integrated into a Video Management System (VMS).
AUTOMATIC LICENSE PLATE RECOGNITIONING (ANPR)
License plate recognition is a very effective technology used across South Africa and has become a crime fighting as well as operational solution. The technology compares the number plate to a database from local companies, crime fighting initiatives or self build databases.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) VIDEO ANALYTICS
CCTV cameras are “dumb” video recording devices with no analytics. Using pixel based analytics are also becoming outdated and outsmart by using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to identify moving objects in a video stream and alert based on the classification made.
Street Monitoring Initiatives and perimeter protection has become very popular as an effect of this technology. It outperforms various detection technologies in certain applications where it’s impossible to use anything but a CCTV camera connected to an intelligent video detection system.
ADDONS TO YOUR CCTV SYSTEM
We can offer various addons to our CCTV offering. From horn speakers as deterrent devices and to provide an audio challenge to strobe lights or the integration of flood lights. These devices offers an offsite monitoring company or your control room to interact with a possible intruder before they attempt anything. It can also be automated and triggered via the cameras themselves or alternative sensors.
