Surveillance System

SUPPORT Technologies provides technology solutions in Structured cabling, Total Networking and Surveillance System.


Surveillance cameras

Surveillance cameras are video cameras used for the purpose of observing an area. They are often connected to a recording device, IP network and/or watched by a security guard/ law enforcement officer. Cameras and recording equipment used to be relatively expensive and required human personnel to monitor camera footage. Now with cheaper production techniques, it is simple and inexpensive enough to be used in home security systems, and for everyday surveillance. Analysis of footage is made easier by automated software that organizes digital video footage into a searchable database, and by automated video analysis software. The amount of footage is also drastically reduced by motion sensors which only record when motion is detected.

The use of surveillance cameras by governments and businesses has dramatically increased over the last 10 years.



Biometric surveillance

Biometric surveillance refers to technologies that measure and analyze human physical and/or behavioral characteristics for authentication, identification, or screening purposes. Examples of physical characteristics include fingerprints, DNA, and facial patterns. Examples of mostly behavioral characteristics include gait (a person's manner of walking) or voice.


Type of Cabling
Every security installation works on a form of cabling architecture. There are many forms of cabling types and styles. The appropriate cabling setup depends on the needs of the equipment you have installed and the location of where the surveillance system is placed.

We will design the cabling architecture to suit your surveillance, while keeping in mind your individual needs and budget.

This is a list of all the types of cabling styles:

Analogue - Your basic type of security system will use copper cable

Digital - Your more modern security system will be based on IP technology

Fibre Optic - Long cable runs or large amount of data to be transmitted

Wireless - Difficult or remote areas to be cabled can have wireless network
