Video surveillance and security systems control

Video surveillance - Smart home equipmentVideo surveillance in the context of a smart building serves both the safety utility and the security of the perimeter, but it also has a practical aspect for the beneficiaries of the smart building. The security of a smart home or office building is an important aspect that can be ensured by integrating the video surveillance system and other security systems into the building’s controlling system.

Often there is a confrontation between the form of the security equipment and the design needs of the intelligent building. But even for the most fastidious in terms of interior design, there are security systems that offer equipment with special shapes and colors, some of them winning design awards at specialized exhibitions. In our projects we use quality equipment from specialized manufacturers.

The practical side offered by video surveillance is that you can always be in visual contact with the smart building by remote control. This fact has practical applications such as: checking children or pets, monitoring the traffic of customers in commercial space or offices, etc.

Video intercom – an equipment already well known and used as the first security barrier in a building. There are models where the interior and exterior station is a glass, available in various colors. All the electronic part is hidden and only the glass front is visible, on which commands are given with a simple touch. Exterior stainless steel models provide antivandal protection necessary in some areas. There are touch screens that have integrated video intercom function, such as those from Zennio (Z70 or Z41COM) or Chime from Control4.

IP cameras can monitor the outside of the building, the entrances or the parking area. The images from these can be displayed on the same displays from which the house systems are controlled, having therefore an unitary overview of the property.
Command of the burglary alarm systems correlates with the status of occupied/unoccupied within the building. Special attention should be given to the communications of data with the controlling systems from the building when using remote commands via Internet. With a bit of attention in using these systems they can help us increase the safety of the home or office.
