Remote video surveillance transmits real-time video from deployed cameras. The open and secure platform allows full telemetry, enabling control over internal video surveillance system functions such as PTZ control, DVR set-up and programming and access control with advanced notification features—including the ability to send bookmarks with specific information related to alarm events. The system provides archived video playback, GPS tracking and alarm monitoring using a map-and-floor plan interface.

Pan-focus cameras give users the abilities to implement imaging technology on an analog platform and to convert cameras for networked operations. The cameras feature deep-focusing technologies to provide continuous focus across the entire field of view, which increases the coverage capabilities of the cameras and reduces the number of cameras required for video surveillance.

Security software is available for use with control panels to improve administrative control and tie unlimited numbers of control panels together. This governs intrusion, fire detection and entry control. In addition, the software allows the user to initiate all panel functions from an on-site personal computer or via remote access. The software keeps CAD drawings, graphics, layers and hyperlinks operational. (Security Engine by Bosch Security Systems) www.boschsecurity.us #15

Outdoor housing unit for PTZ dome cameras protects against outdoor elements and physical damage. The housing unit is water- and air-tight, and is equipped with a heater/blower that performs at temperatures ranging from 30°F to 95°F. The manufacturer also offers a cold climate system for areas that reach -20°F and in areas where ice and snow collect. Also optional is a thermo-electric cooling system that protects the unit in temperatures as high as 145°F. The unit measures 14.9 in. X 11.7 in. x 13.2 in. (D2 by Dotworkz) www.dotworkz.com #16
