MANAGEMENT FROM A DVR?
Speco Technologies new Digital Deterrent™ System is available in Speco PC Series and TN Family DVRs.
Once motion is detected by a surveillance camera networked to a DVR, an alarm is triggered and a custom audio/visual warning is automatically projected, so the perpetrator believes he is actually being watched. The Digital Deterrent™ System has been created by Speco Technologies to prevent crime, not just record it.
For example, in parking lot surveillance, cameras are installed and networked to a DVR connected to a monitor to watch different areas. For crime prevention, a custom sound file (.wav file) can be recorded (“Warning-You are under surveillance”), transported and saved to the hard drive in the DVR. The motion sensor for a specific camera would be set so that when motion is detected, an alarm is triggered which initiates the sound file while a strobe light goes off at the same time. The voice, projected through an amplified speaker, sounds as if someone nearby has seen the intruder and is warning him that he is being watched and recorded. The outcome should be a startled criminal that leaves the scene before the crime is actually committed.
Speco Technologies Digital Deterrent™ can be used as a marketing tool as well. For instance, in a supermarket, CCTV cameras are set up for surveillance in different aisles and networked through a DVR.
In the dairy aisle, one camera is focused on the milk and motion detection is setup for that camera in the same way it is for the parking lot. A custom sound file is recorded, transported and saved to the hard drive as previously stated. Only that sound file could say something like “Cookies go great with milk. Check out our cookies on sale in aisle 5.” So when a customer passes the camera by the milk, the motion is detected and sets off the alarm which sounds through a nearby amplified speaker, which is the cookie message. It is a unique idea to provide advertising in the store.
SPECO has brought a revolutionary device suitable for a wide range of applications. The product is supported with an impressive web site and is supplied with detailed and well written manuals and CDs.
Upgrades and new modules are on their web site and may be downloaded and easily uploaded into the DVR via a generous array of ports and connectivity options. The DVR uses LUNUX OS which mean it will be less vulnerable to hacks and more amenable to customization by those of you out there who are into such things.
Your customers will be able to trust in the quality of the SPECO because it backs its product with a three-year warranty.
