Security surveillance systems are only as effective as their ability to see and warn of intrusions. While today’s video technology has significantly extended the perimeters of detection, many blind spots remain, hindering its success.

Errors in human decision-making, equipment malfunctions and lack of timely data can cripple surveillance operations; and prompt detection can become uncertain in the dark of night or in adverse weather. Advanced technology however, is helping to close these gaps in surveillance systems. A fully integrated system will incorporate six building blocks that can transform video surveillance into a reliable, allweather, 24/7, low-cost, automated, remotely operated network.
