CCTV and Video Surveillance from American Guardian

CCTV Video Surveillence

When a business owner decides to protect his business, employees and customers by making an investment in CCTV camera systems or video surveillance the single most important factor to consider is the history, experience level, and track record of the security dealer who will be installing and servicing the equipment. This is extremely important because inevitably your CCTV equipment or video surveillance equipment will require periodic adjustments and service. All too often a business owner who bought equipment at a bargain basement price discovers the false economy of his purchase when the obscure security dealer is out of business and when his system requires warranty work or service. When that happens it is extremely difficult to find a reputable dealer who will provide service on a system that they did not install.

American Guardian has been installing business security systems and providing stellar service to their customers for over twenty five years. If you decide to place your faith and trust in us you can rest assured that we will be around to honor our warranties and service commitments when you need us.

Remember, there is a difference in quality and service when choosing a security provider.

Glossary of Security Camera Terminology

Below is a partial Glossary of Security Camera Terminology

  • Brick Camera – Professional body camera rectangle in shape – hence the name brick.
  • Bullet Camera – Long cylindrical camera shaped like a bullet.
  • Dome Camera – Camera enclosed in a smoked glass or plastic dome. Used in applications where less obtrusive cameras are desirable.
  • Covert Camera – Camera which is designed to be hidden. Can be hidden in a clock, motion detector, smoke detector, etc.
  • CCD – Charged coupled device. This is the imaging device of the camera.
  • Mega Pixel Camera – Megapixel/HDTV cameras offer a dramatically higher quality of video resolution than traditional analog cameras.
  • Analog Camera – Traditional analog circuitry/non-digital.
  • IP Cameras – Internet protocol camera. These cameras are for use in computer networks. These cameras can provide a high resolution, crystal clear image comparable to video taken with a 10 megapixel camera. Drawback: IP cameras eat up a tremendous amount of bandwidth and can slow the entire network down if not designed properly.
  • Day/Night Cameras – These cameras can deliver high resolution color in daylight and acceptable resolution at night.
  • Infrared Camera – Use infrared illuminators inside the camera to “see” at night.
  • Non Infrared Day/Night Camera – Uses an extremely efficient low lux technology to deliver a high resolution image in night settings without the aid of infra red illuminators.
  • Wide Dynamic Range Camera – WDR cameras provide a high resolution image in a challenging bright environment where glare would normally be a problem with most cameras.
  • Fixed Lens Cameras – Cameras with lenses which are fixed at one focus setting and can not be adjusted.
  • Varifocal Lenses – Lenses which can be adjusted by the technician at the installation site to provide the best possible picture.
  • Auto Iris Lenses – Lenses which automatically adjust to light conditions to optimize the picture quality.
  • 1/3 Inch Sony CCD – The main driver of camera quality. The gold standard in camera chips. You want to use 1/3 inch over the lower quality ¼ inch aperture camera commonly seen in the market place.
  • PTZ Cameras – PTZ stands for Pan, Tilt, and Zoom. These are more expensive cameras that are motorized and can be controlled remotely by an operator to zoom in on suspicious behavior.
  • Vandal Proof Dome – Vandal Proof Dome cameras are virtually indestructible cameras that are used in prisons, jails, or high crime areas.
  • Weather Proof Housing – Weatherproof housings are used to enclose outside cameras. They are waterproof and sometimes even contain heating elements with internal electric fans for use in severe climate conditions.
  • DVR – Digital Video Recorder. This is used to store, record, and retrieve large volumes of video content.
  • Video Analytics – Technology that enables video systems to detect, interpret, and analyze movement within a predefined target area of a camera’s total picture range.
  • Remote Monitoring – Video monitoring that is remotely monitored and stored by a licensed UL Listed monitoring station for the purpose of adding another layer of enhanced protection for the client.
  • American Guardian Proprietary Technology – Proprietary technology developed and owned by American Guardian which is exclusive to American Guardian and not available to security dealers in the general marketplace.
