The security cameras at the Miami Herald building were able to shed some light on the horrific attack on a homeless man this week. What if something happened outside your building, could you help? Security is so important these days and security camera can play a big role in keeping your tenants and property safe. Advanced Control Corporation is staffed with skilled and qualified professionals to assist in developing a security system for your building or business.
Advanced Control can implement a network camera system on to your building automation solution using your buildings computer network giving you the ability to monitor your building or business with video surveillance from a workstation at the location or via the web from anywhere in the world. Advanced Control’s network IP cameras are closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras that use internet protocol to transmit images, signals and data over a high-speed Ethernet link instead of using standard coaxial cabling used in traditional camera systems. IP cameras make ideal surveillance cameras, they are very versatile and compact, and they can provide unmatched video resolution for the money. In most circumstances a group of IP cameras are deployed together with a digital video recorder (DVR) or a network video recorder (NVR) to form a seamlessly integrated video surveillance system.
When developing requirements for a CCTV system solution, Advanced Control knows security and reliability is at the top of the list of concerns. Fixed Position wall and ceiling mounted security cameras are a sturdy and attractive approach to your buildings video surveillance system. Fixed position security cameras are ideal for either indoor or outdoor environment, with designs and sizes available to complement any décor and motif.
Pan/tilt/zoom, or PTZ cameras are the perfect complement to the fixed cameras. The PTZ allow the system operator the ability to investigate your premises from multiple angles, as opposed to simply remaining trained to one spot, offering a security advantage. The PTZ technology virtually eliminates the security issue of individuals avoiding areas they are aware are being seen or recorded, opting instead to perform unsavory activities such as vandalism or company theft where they know they are not being captured by the camera.
Advanced Control’s team of proficient security design experts are ready to create a video surveillance system for you. Contact Advanced Control Corporation today and discover how affordable true security can be.
It seems that as the demand for closed circuit cameras (CCTV) continues to increase, security technology has been able to evolve- resulting in new products with better image quality, resolution and clarity. The latest example of this is the high definition close circuit camera (HD CCTV). HD CCTV cameras are a hybrid of digital security cameras and IP CCTVs. Any sort of mass adoption of these cameras may seem quite far away, yet the technology, though a little expensive, has immense benefits to offer.
An alluring feature of this HD CCTV technology is that it can be seamlessly integrated into current analog or IP systems, allowing for expansion of existing video installations without sacrificing functionality. Furthermore, the resolution is significantly better than what is offered with standard CCTV cameras. However, because this is a new development, it is much more expensive than what is currently dominating the market. Therefore, it remains to be seen how or when this technology will seriously come into play.

There is an array of excellent options when it comes to closed circuit television, or CCTV, solutions. A particularly comprehensive choice is pan/tilt/zoom, or PTZ, cameras. These are an ideal solution to the various issues that fixed cameras pose.
As the name implies, the PTZ allows the user to zero-in and closely follow the recorded action. The PTZ provides a greater range of view to pan your building’s premises using the lens settings at its widest angle. This also enables you to in-depth zoom for a closer look, which is especially useful for identification purposes during playback.
A PTZ camera has the ability to investigate your facility from multiple angles, as opposed to fixed cameras that only offer one perspective on a trained spot. This is an additional security advantage that will help keep your people and profits safe. These cameras are able to view up-and-down, side-to-side, and even scope the entire front and sides of your building, rather than a fraction of it. The system operator can manually control the direction of the surveillance camera by the easy-to-use keypad or joystick, to ensure you capture exactly what you wish.
Another feature of the PTZ cameras is the pan, tilt, zoom technology, which virtually eliminates the security issue of individuals avoiding areas they are aware are being watched or recorded. This reduces the risk of threatening activities such as company theft.
Advanced Control Corporation’s team of proficient security design experts are ready to demonstrate to you how your overall video surveillance system can benefit from the added security of a PTZ surveillance camera in your facility.

Thermal imaging is a unique CCTV solution that may conjure up images of great spy movies and futuristic technology. But the truth is this surveillance solution is widely used today by the military, fire and rescue and law enforcement to help detect things unseen to the naked eye. Now recognized as an effective and affordable way to protect your assets, CCTV solutions, like thermal imaging cameras, have grown in popularity and use.
Initially developed for special government facilities and to improve bank security, CCTV, or closed circuit television, technology is now a popular solution for monitoring the safety of your business, building and workforce. Essentially, CCTV technology allows for the private transmitting of signals from video cameras to authorized monitors. In the specific case of thermal imaging cameras, they are able to detect subtle temperature changes in total darkness. All objects, both manmade and natural, emit infrared energy as heat and thermal imaging has the ability to view these objects in extreme low lighting and weather conditions.
Thermal imaging cameras are an excellent CCTV solution for your pre-existing video surveillance system because they eliminate the vulnerabilities of conventional security options. Integrating thermal imaging cameras into your security surveillance system will better protect your high-value assets and premises by capturing surveillance footage in complete darkness, restricted visibility or inclement weather. If your building needs a complete security solution, then thermal imaging cameras are a strategic choice.
