Comtex Surveillance System Saves Client $$ and Aggravation!

One of our existing clients, who chooses to remain anonymous but allowed us to post this story, invested in a surveillance system purchased and installed by Comtex. An employee, who was being disciplined with the intent of termination, had claimed to have been injured at a specific location and time. Our client reviewed the video footage and found no evidence that this “injury” occurred. Our client showed it to the insurance company and they denied the claim. Our client told us that footage “saved them from losing thousands of dollars.”

This same client, in the following month, had an employee who was moving some welding gas tanks in an unsafe way. The client had reviewed the footage and after confronting the employee with the evidence of his unsafe actions, he accepted termination without complaint.

Our client wrote us and stated:
“It turns out that the decision to purchase the system, made for completely different reasons, has benefited us in unexpected ways. Often I find that decisions I struggle with considering what I think are the important factors turn out better or worse because of things I didn’t anticipate.”

Using Cameras to Stop Drivers from Illegally Passing Stopped School Buses

Iowa is looking to purchase CCTV cameras to help enforce an Iowa law that increased penalties for drivers who illegally drive past a school bus if it is stopped on a road.

The law, typically referred to as Kadyn’s Law, suspends a driver’s privileges for 30 days for a first conviction, increasing it to 90 days for a second conviction and 180 days for a third conviction. The law was promulgated in response to the 2011 death of 7-year-old Kadyn Halverson, who was hit by a car when she was crossing the road to board a school bus.

Randy Meyer, who oversees transportation  at Mason City and Clear Lake schools, believes an exterior camera on school buses are needed to assist in identifying more violators. Without the camera, it is hard to identify a car when the violation occurs because they drive by so fast. Only about 10% of drivers who pass the buses illegally get reported to the police.If a license plate can be captured on video, a potential violator may think twice and stop.

Voice Data & Video Cabling in NJ and NYC

Today, your network cabling carries the lifeblood of your organization; information. Cable networks are the medium that connects users to their voice, data and video systems. Your wiring infrastructure is of far greater importance than the hardware connected to it. Without a robust cabling system in place, your network can fail or be compromised, drastically affecting productivity. Implementing the right structured cabling system is imperative to achieve optimum performance from your telephone, surveillance and access control equipment. It is imperative that your network infrastructure is properly designed, installed and tested for performance.

Since 1959, Comtex has provided clients with complete cabling infrastructures for video surveillance, telephone and access control systems. We utilize all types of cabling products and we specialize in the design and implementation of voice, data and video cabling. All cabling is professionally installed by our trained technicians. We provide a FREE on site cabling assessment, design and quote.

Getting it right depends on the best combination of skilled people, quality products and exceptional performance. Each cabling project is specifically designed for that client and the demands of their network and equipment. Our initial on-site survey and consultation is offered at no charge enabling you to take full advantage of our expertise and experience. Our technicians are well trained on industry cabling standards and they certify the integrity of each cable according to current industry standards.  Our wiring installations provide performance, reliability, and investment protection for your company.  

With bandwidth increasing and reliance on the network at an all time high, getting information to where it needs to be is becoming more challenging than ever. Ask any IT Manager what their most common network problem is and you will most likely hear them complain about cabling issues. In fact, cabling problems, which account for over 50% of network problems, cost companies millions annually.

The most common problems are:

• Low attenuation
• Poor NEXT (near-end crosstalk)
• Poor ACR (attenuation-to-crosstalk ratio)
• Poor delay skew (data arrives at different times)
• Impedance
• Poor return loss (also known as “echo”)
• Poor ELFEXT (equal-level far-end crosstalk) numbers for cable, connecting hardware
   and channel
• Splices in cable
• Mis-labeled cables
• Video degradation over long distance runs

All of these problems can be avoided if the cabling is installed and tested properly. The cable must be installed following strict and specific guidelines and the testing must be done using the right equipment calibrated for the latest standards (called certification). Testing and certification are the most important steps in any cable installation. Connecting the network equipment and verifying that it works is not enough. Category 5e and Category 6 certification requires special testing equipment called scanners. Every cable and connector that we install is scanned and a printed report is provided verifying compliance to the Category 5e and Category 6 standards.

Why Invest in an Access Control System?

It is true that any business today, whether large or small will have something that it needs to protect. This may be information or it simply may be company assets, such as electronics within the building. It company may also need to protect staff members and their belongings. However, in many businesses today, this can be difficult. Many businesses still rely on the old-fashioned key to allow access in and out of a building and the doors to a building where people may be working are generally unlocked throughout the working day. This is why many people choose to invest in access control.
