How does a videooverv?gning work?

Posted by AllmaJess on April 22nd, 2013

Surveillance is very useful to residential users and companies alike, helping them maintain a high level of security. A videoovervågning is used to electronically capture and transmit information via video cameras and a trådløs router from the surveillance system to a computer, and then to a person. Thanks to video cameras and Wireless routers, individuals, hotel owners, company managers can be informed very quickly about a certain threat occurring within their house, hotel or company. They can find out that something unexpected is happening at their house or headquarters even when they are not there, thanks to the Internet. If the surveillance system recognizes a problem, such as a thief or a fire, it can immediately notify the household owner or the company manager.

Most video surveillance systems involve monitoring data with the help of a computer or more and although the use of a trådløs router or Wireless router is not imperative in this case, it is recommended to purchase a router like this too, when buying the videoovervågning, because it is much easier and safer to use the Internet wirelessly. Let us imagine that a thief breaks in, cuts down the Internet cables connected to your computer, and then he starts to steal anything that comes to light. If the cables are cut, your Internet connection will be affected, thus you will not be notified of what is going on. With a Wireless router, nothing like this could ever happen, because this device can be placed in a location hard to find by unauthorized people, including in the attic or guest house, where no one could cut the Internet cable plugged into it.

Video cameras integrated in a surveillance system are used for the sole purpose of observing an area. They are in most cases connected to a computer where the transmitted pieces of information are stored; the video footage needs to be stored for future use, in case the household owner or company manager discovers that he has been stolen. In the past, cameras and recording equipment were pretty expensive, and they often required humans to decipher a problem when that had occured. Luckily, today we do not need to endlessly watch a computer screen to see what is going on in front of our house or headquarters, or inside of it. Nowadays, surveillance systems use specific software created to recognize threats and act accordingly, meaning to notify the rightful owners of the house or company about the unexpected activity that happens inside the house/company.

Sometimes, surveillance systems are so advanced, that they can be connected with other systems in a house or company, and they can even block a thief from getting out of the location where he planned to strike. As an example, a surveillance system can be connected with the electric doors and windows of a household or company's headquarters and they can work together to capture a thief or unauthorized person. Surveillance systems transform a regular household or company into intelligent entities, capable of making decisions and help their owners keep the security at a high level.

Every household and company should use a videoovervågning or video surveillance system, to ensure the security of all those present in the house or at the company’s headquarters. Moreover, surveillance systems that use a computer to store video footage and also a trådløs router or Wireless router to notify the owners about a situation, can be connected with various other systems used in a house or company, and call the police, trigger the fire alarm, and even catch the bad guys inside the building, by locking the doors and windows.
