Perseus Wireless: Mobile Access to CCTV

The Perseus Wireless system uses security/CCTV camera(s) and a Perseus Video Server to produce streaming video that can be sent through the Cingular network and viewed remotely on "The PerseusPhone" cell phone.


With the development of alarm systems, property owners/renters gained a sense of comfort, realizing that their property had protection. Sensors strategically placed along the building's perimeter and inside maintained security and would notify the residents if security was compromised. However...

Note: Perseus recommends that a test cell phone be used at the wireless server location to ensure that the signal strength is sufficient.

The two servers are designed to operate with most security/CCTV cameras. Before purchasing any video camera, determine the application. The application will determine the type of video camera required. For example, if you want to see a person at a door, the camera should have an appropriate focal length to provide a clear image of the face or the desired portion of the person at the door. If the need is to observe a large parking lot or a factory, the focal length may be significantly different. Know the application prior to purchasing the camera.

The quality of the camera will reflect on the image observed on the telephone.

The Perseus Servers each handle one video input. If there is more than one video camera, using a multiplexer or commercial surveillance Digital Video Recorder (DVR) allows you to do a tour that cycles through the different cameras. Depending upon the DVR, cycle times are adjustable. Nuvico, a DVR manufacturer, and Perseus have partnered to enable the Perseus Phone to choose which camera will output to the PerseusPhone. Using a list, the Perseus Phone can choose which video camera's image will be streamed. The system can deliver video at up to 15 frames per second depending upon the connection.

Perseus Wireless has a Technical Help Desk, telephone 877-819-6028, available Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. West Coast time.
