Security is important for any business. Moreover, it is important to ensure the safety of objects both inside and outside. To ensure security outside the building, external surveillance is used, which makes it possible to identify visitors, record car numbers, and recognize intruders. The advantage of using such a system is a sufficiently long period of time during which an effective adequate response can be organized.
Outdoor surveillance is most often organized with the help of video cameras, arranged taking into account the terrain, topography and location of the object. For a competent arrangement of devices, it is necessary to consult a specialist: in such a case there are no trifles, and the presence of relevant experience will guarantee high-quality work. Today, outdoor surveillance is relevant not only for commercial or industrial enterprises. More and more shopping centers, educational institutions and public organizations come to the need to installsuch a security system.
Effective outdoor surveillance can be organized only with the use of special equipment, which is subject to strict requirements both in terms of image clarity and the ability to withstand all kinds of climatic, weather and mechanical influences.
Systems that do not meet at least one of these requirements may pose a security risk in general. Since the outdoor surveillance camera is usually located in a hard-to-reach place, its reliability will be an important factor, since the maintenance and repair of such equipment entail significant material costs.
No less attention should be paid to ease of installation. Outdoor surveillance usually includes a fairly large number of video cameras. If installation is a complex and time-consuming matter, then the cost of the system itself will be significant. The CCTV camera should be easy to install (which saves money and resources) and provide excellent image clarity. The device must transmit a sufficient number of frames per second and have a high resolution.
To transmit a high-quality picture in any conditions, infrared sensors are needed (to ensure shooting at night) and aperture control (for timely response to changes in illumination).
Surveillance cameras are also subject to increased requirements in terms of resistance to mechanical damage: theyshould successfully resist decontamination attempts. Some models give signals when trying to physically destroy, which is especially true in large enterprises with a large number of video cameras: it can be quite difficult to react in such conditions in time, and the alarm allows you to pay attention to a specific area almost instantly.
Since outdoor surveillance is carried out in all weather conditions, some models are equipped with a lens anti-icing system, which is especially important for the northern regions and harsh winters.
