Basic Components of a CCTV System

Basic Components of a CCTV System

May 26, 2016

How does it operate basically?

In fact a CCTV system consists of 3 major components:-

   a. The Camera - Which actually captures the happenings.

   b. The Recorder - Which records the happenings

   c. The Monitor - Which displays the movements

The Camera:-

 

The Camera is actually an Eye which keeps 24 x 7 on your working area, which works like a security guy to keep watch on you constantly. The Cameras are various types, depending upon your requirement. They are selected with reference to the usage, area of surveillance etc. The IP based cameras now, can be zoomed, panned etc, as per need. The resolution can be More or less as per the area it covers. If they have to keep a watch on the whole factory building from terrace, they need to be of higher resolution, whereas, if it is to keep track of a particular operation at a particular stage, such as keeping track of Printing mfg Date on labels on a Packing Belt Conveyor, it can be of lasses resolution.

 

The cameras can be installed within a closed room, e.g. in a hospital room, or can be installed outside, e.g. near the security cabin of a company's entry gate. The cameras installed outside need more Robust Stands & structure for sturdiness.

The selection of a proper camera is very vital as the whole CCTV system begins at this point. Usage of a proper Branded Camera is very important. Hence proper counseling (not just consultation) is needed before you finalize the camera.

What is a CCTV System Environment ?
 
As everyone is aware now, CCTV is nothing but a Close Circuit Television system Environment. Typically you find these CCTV systems in Residential societies, colonies, Industrial premises, Hospitals, Institutions, now even on Public systems such as Roads, Highways etc.

They are used to monitor the movement within the premises to keep it safe. The systems typically, when "ON", record the movements within its periphery and keep memory. This can be used further if any mishap happens.

The Recorders:-

 

If Cameras work as the five senses, Recorders connected to computers are the "Memory & Brain" behind it. Recorders are mainly of "DVR" & "NVR" types. DVR stands for Digital Video recorders, which are Analog type recorders, which are standalone mainly.

DVR stands for Digital Video recorders, which are Analog type recorders, which are standalone mainly. On the DVRs, the data is saved on a hard dedicated drive Whereas NVR stands for Network Video Recorders, which are IP based recorders, which track multi camera environment.  On the NVRs, Data is stored on a virtual network with special software to manage it. The DVRs are outdated technology, but still in use, lesser compared with the NVRs.

Pune Declared as the second in the smart cities list

May 26, 2016

Pune Ranks 2nd in the Smart Cities Shortlisted cities

Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi had appealed all the city corporations in India to participate in the smart cities scheme, out of which 100 cities will be chosen to become Smart Cities in India. Many of the major ones participated in this, and recently the Government published their first list of 20 cities. The list tops Bhuvaneshwar i.e. Capital of Odisha, whereas Pune becomes the second next to Bhuvaneshwar. Other surprise entrants are Solapur, Belgaum & Davangere. But, basically, what’s a Smart City?

What’s a Smart City?

Smart City is basically a design of resources within a certain city limit. It is designed keeping in view to improve the quality of life of the citizens living in it. As the cities start growing more, typical problems like the increasing traffic, security become critical. It does not remain just a task, but a priority to cater to these rising situations using a different, smarter way. There comes the establishment of an ‘Information & Communication Technology Solution (ICT)’, which is the backbone of the whole Smart City Plan.

“ICT allows city officials to interact directly with the community and the city infrastructure and to tell what is happening in the city, how the city is evolving, and how to enable a better quality of life. Through the use of real-time systems and sensors, data are collected from citizens and objects - then processed in real-time. The information and knowledge gathered are keys to tackling inefficiency.”

--- Wikipedia

You can read more about exactly what’s ICT & its relevance to a smart city on Wikipedia .

How will that be different than your existing cities?

Let’s take a typical case of Pune. Pune is claimed to be one of the fastest growing cities in India, and preferred as well by many to reside & settle in. But, last 1-2 years, the Puneits are not so happy because with faster growth there is a tremendous pressure on the Water System, Traffic & Security as well. So, if we think in respect of a what Pune will become when it becomes “Smart”, it will typically have an excellent Transport system , water conservation systems like Rain Water Harvesting systems , Security measures like CCTV monitoring at all major Public places too. In other words, Pune will become a highly “Manageable & Secure” city compared to what it is today.

Let’s take an example of the security systems today. Recently many mishaps were recorded about Chain-Snatching by some local goondaas. However, a smart city can’t eliminate these tendencies entirely, it will have a real time CCTV camera based system which will record & transmit data in real time , so that a remedial action can be taken immediately, which is not present at all locations today.

The Role of a CCTV based Surveillance system for a smart city

If we observe clearly, the smart city plan always rotates around the word “People’s Engagement”. And very true, without engaging the people, how your city can be smart? With the growing demand for security, organized traffic, the real time data recording, transfer & monitoring also becomes important. As India has lesser Police Force per citizens, we will always be exposed to this reality. To handle this situation, technology has an answer in form of CCTV systems, from where the real time events can be recorded & acted upon. In a smart city, to interpret the data, it will be essential first there exists the data through recordings. The CCTV fulfils this need very clearly.

As a citizen, how will you be secured?

 

 

As a citizen, if you come across any incidence like an accident or may be a medical emergency or a social emergency, there will be a Mobile App which will intimate the nearest Police Station or a Hospital; help will be available from there. And if need some investigations, a CCTV system recording will play a very crucial role. It will add security.

The Railway Budget 2016-2017 & CCTV Cameras on Stations

The Railway Budget 2016-2017 & CCTV Cameras on Stations

May 26, 2016

The Two Budgets

In February every year, the Indian citizens eagerly wait for two major budgets which really mean something for them.

·         The Railway Budget

·         The Union Budget

The Railway Budget for 2016-17 was announced in February, and the Union Budget was announced in the 1st week of March 2016. As the Railway Budget did speak about the installation of CCTV systems , we were curious to have some light on this subject .

What did the Railway Budget say about CCTV Systems ?

Actually , to improve the security levels at the Railway Stations , the Railway Ministry has suggested to install CCTV systems at 311 stations. This is what the Hon. Minister for Railways , Mr Suresh Prabhu said.  After this , here was an increase in Stock Prices for companies who deal in Surveillance equipments . We won’t talk much about this , as it usually remains as a public reaction in anxiety. But there will be a boom in this sector, no doubts.

The current scenario about CCTV systems on Railway Stations

So, don’t the stations have CCTV systems currently ? Some might be having, some might not. Again, if installed, at which places ? At least at the important locations -are they installed? The Ideal locations can be at the Point where passengers board in or get out of the trains.

This is really challenging , as you see the heavy rush in the suburban trains in Mumbai. Still, compared with the current scenario , this will bring some more security for the passengers.Even at present, there must have been CCTV systems installed at various stations, at least the important stations like Dadar Railway Station in Mumbai. We recently read news which actually has a coverage of a man being crushed to death.

Special Panel to study the feasibility in Railway Coaches

Further, the Railway is also eyeing the importance of installing such systems in the Ladies Coaches of the Local Trains . They have already started this by appointing a special panel for Mumbai Suburban Trains.  The panel is going to study whether it will be feasible to have such systems within a coach.

As it will initially focus on the security of the Ladies travelling by suburban trains , the priority will be installing CCTV’s in the Ladies Only coaches.

CCTV Systems at Tatkal Counters

Tatkal is an urgent emergency Train Booking System for Indian  Railway Passengers. But, why is the Govt going to install CCTV systems at Tatkal Counters? Is it the safety measure, or is it to prevent fraud? As we know, there is a heavy rush at the Tatkal Booking Counters.People start standing in queue right at 7 a.m. in the morning to claim their urgent tickets. There are Agents too, who “take care” of your booking , they say. (“aap fikar mat karo, hum sab dekh lenge”)

Installing mobile DVR in a teenager’s car will be advantageous to parents and the teenager. The parents will be able to monitor the teen’s activity and vice versa, the teenager will also be responsible while handling the vehicle gifted to them by their parents.

Geo Fencing can also be marked for a vehicle, so that a alert is triggered immediately, if the vehicle goes off the pre-decided route.

 

Where can we install this Mobile DVR system.

This Mobile DVR system can be installed in all vehicles whether personal or private. School Buses, Company buses, Ambulances, Fleet owners, Travel agencies, Milk Vans and Police vehicle; should be provided by the Mobile DVR system. These surveillance systems are based on latest technology, as per market demand. They are reliable and give accuracy and promptness to track the vehicles.

The Mobile DVR system challenges the day to day entry and exit point of each and every vehicle, monitoring all the instances of the day. It prevents vandalism of the vehicle and its passengers.

How Mr. Wanjale used Mobile DVR successfully?

Mr. Wanjale is the owner of 5 numbers of tourist taxis. All the taxis have been fitted with Mobile DVR and are under surveillance and all the vehicles are tracked by Sim card. Today he has bought a new vehicle and has been fitted with camera. A new driver has been appointed and immediately sent on an outstation trip. Mr. Wanjale was not satisfied with the new driver but could not refuse the trip as he felt that getting a trip immediately on bringing the new car is lucky for him. He was not worried because the new car was fitted with all the necessary accessories to be tracked on the DVR. That night when Mr. Wanjale went to sleep everything was ok. Next day morning he received an alert from the Geo Fencing feature that the new car was going off the route. He tried to call the driver but the phone was switched off. He kept tracking the car till it reached the nearest town. The car stopped there probably the driver wanted to have tea. After 10 minutes, the owner switched off the engine through the DVR and informed the local police station about the theft of the car and the location of the car. Mr. Wanjale immediately left his office with another driver and reached the place by afternoon. He registered a complaint against the driver of the new car in the police station and with the help of spare driver which he had taken with him he brought the car back to his place.
