CCTV Surveillance and Access Control Systems

Crime Fighting and Prevention Tools

A CCTV video surveillance camera system provides a significant function in our society because these systems fight and prevent crimes.  CCTV surveillance systems installed in public areas help deter crime, help civilians feel much safer, provide the police with leads or evidence as well as improve the surroundings of a crime-stricken neighborhood. Nowadays, most of these systems have been made digital for improved performance, easy maneuverability of the surveillance camera and produce faster feedback as compared to the analog systems.

Analog vs. IP Video Surveillance Systems

There are 2 generations of technology for video surveillance systems. The first is the older analog based system and the second is the modern Internet Protocol (IP) based system. The biggest confusions are the cost of the 2 technologies and the relative effectiveness of them. This article attempts to provide a more precise big picture of cost benefits for a company considering a video surveillance system.

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.

Pharmacies Under Seige Installing CCTV Systems

There was an article in the New York Times on February 7, 2011 , by Abby Goodnough,  titled “Pharmacies Under Seige From Robbers Seeking Drugs.” Citing a rash of armed robberies at Maine drug stores last year, it appears drug addicts are so desperate to get their hands on painkillers, including OxyContin, that they will stop at nothing to feed their habit.   “Outside of hiring an armed guard to be here 24/7”, one pharmacy owner is refusing to sell the drug. Others are  investing in CCTV surveillance system systems to protect their  employees and customers. 

For over 50 years, Comtex has specialized in the design, installation and service of Digital and IP CCTV – video surveillance systems and access control systems. We offer 24/ 7 service and a free on site surveillance assessment in New Jersey NJ and New York NY.

Secure Your Business

Is your business suffering from crime, or are you worried that you haven”t done enough to protect it? There are many different security measures you can take to ensure that your business, your stock, your employees and your customers are safe, and one of these is by installing a CCTV system.

We”re used to seeing surveillance  operations in our streets and in our shops, perhaps even in the place where we work, but would you put it in your business, and if so, why?

Peace of mind

Whether you have been the target of vandals or have experienced robbery or attacks, you need a security system that gives you peace of mind. While a digital surveillance system can”t always stop an attack, it can be a deterrent and it can provide valuable evidence that helps to identify the perpetrator, or to give the police a better idea about what took place. The knowledge that a CCTV system could make a would-be burglar change his or her mind or capture their face on file if they decide to go ahead is the reason that many people invest in CCTV systems.

Adaptable

Unlike many other security measures, CCTV is adaptable. This means you can start off with a small, relatively basic system and add cameras and monitors as and when you need to. You can decide to have static cameras in strategic places and remote-controlled cameras elsewhere. A good CCTV supplier can help to tailor a package that fits your needs.

Protects your staff and your customers

Your staff may have been subject to attack or verbal abuse, and your customers may not feel safe in your store.  A visible surveilance camera helps to protect your most important assets; your employees and your customers. For example, a monitored system could pick up the signs of trouble before anything actually occurs and staff can take immediate action.

It is worth considering whether you and your business could benefit from the installation of a CCTV system
