Video Surveillance Systems

Professionally designed and installed video solutions paired with powerful video services take your security to the next level.

TELSCO Video Surveillance For Business

Video surveillance systems are often incorporated into our custom commercial security solutions. Whether you are focused on live viewing, recorded footage or alarm verification, a professionally designed and installed video surveillance system is a great addition to your security solution. With options for Wireless Cameras, Remote Connectivity and Full System Integration, Video Systems are more flexible and valuable than ever.

While surveillance cameras are available at electronics stores or online, they do not offer the same quality of images and capabilities of a professional solution. By assessing the needs of your organization, the experts at TELSCO Security Systems can help you determine what type of Video Solution will deliver the best long-term value for your application.

CCTV Cameras & Security Camera Systems

With so many options available when it comes to commercial security cameras, our consultants will assess your unique needs to determine which type of Video Solution, and which cameras will be best for you.

Our recommendations will depend on the answers to a number of questions:

  • What do you want to see?
  • What kind of image quality are you looking for?
  • Will we be installing indoor or outdoor security cameras?
  • Are we recording in low light?
  • How long do you need to store the recorded footage?
  • Will we be integrating with an intrusion or access control system?
  • Do you want to view your cameras remotely?

No matter what the solution, you can be sure that your custom proposal will include high-quality equipment to be installed and supported by our knowledgeable local team.

In some cases, we can even work with your existing cameras to enable powerful video services that add new value to your security cameras.

Video Alarm Verification

Video Enhanced Response

If you have ever responded to a false alarm or received a call about an alarm going off and wondered what it might be, you will appreciate our powerful video services as part of your security solution.

With Video Enhanced Response and Video Alarm Verification, intrusion detection is taken to the next level. These powerful alternatives to traditional security combine intruder detection with simultaneous video footage to provide the best possible information about an alarm.

Video Surveillance FAQs

Does video surveillance deter crime?

The presence of cameras can act as a visual deterrent to crime. Knowing that there is the possibility of video evidence may cause an intruder to re-think their intentions. Although the mere presence of a video camera may act as a deterrent, we would not recommend relying on this as a security solution.  Video cameras should be equipped with analytics to create alarms or paired with intrusion detection devices to allow for response in the event of an intrusion.

Are video surveillance cameras effective?

The effectiveness of a Video Surveillance Solution will depend on the original intent and design of the solution. Video surveillance cameras may serve a number of purposes, and the expectation of what the video cameras will be doing must be defined early on.

Cameras may be installed simply to record historical video footage, or they may also be equipped with powerful analytics that create alarms and trigger an emergency response when an intruder is in a field of view.

When video surveillance cameras are incorporated with a traditional intrusion system, they can provide enhanced response – allowing alarm operators to see what is happening in the business – in real time – when the alarm is triggered. A thorough needs analysis is critical to ensure that a video surveillance system will be effective for the desired application.

Where can I buy surveillance cameras?

There are hundreds – maybe thousands of options – for where and how to purchase surveillance cameras. When considering video surveillance cameras for your business, it is recommended to work with a professional security partner who has a history of success in this space.

The effectiveness of your video solution depends on a solid understanding of the application, thoughtful design, quality equipment, professional installation – and ongoing support – which a TESLCO security expert can help with.  Working with a professional partner can also limit the security risks that come along with stand alone IP cameras – and may provide integration options to help leverage existing security equipment.

How much does it cost to install CCTV cameras?

The cost of a video surveillance system can vary significantly based on size, quality, and function. With hundreds of options available, a security expert is an excellent resource for determining which video surveillance solution will provide the greatest benefit to your business. When a video system is designed based on your unique needs, it will provide the best long-term value.

Do CCTV cameras need wifi?

A video surveillance system can function without internet, serving simply to record events that can be viewed onsite with a local monitor. However, when internet is available, a video surveillance system can be complemented with several services that add value to the solution. These services include Remote Health Monitoring, Video Enhanced Response, and App Access.

What is the best surveillance for small business?

The answer to this question is largely determined by your primary reason for seeking a surveillance system. Whether you are looking to enhance alarm response, capture internal theft, record unexpected events, the best solution is one that is customized to suit your individual needs.

How can I monitor CCTVs Remotely?

Almost all video solutions now come with an option for remote access. As long as internet is available there should be no issue with accessing your video cameras using an app or web login. Cameras can also be remotely accessed by a professional monitoring centre in order to assist with alarm response or identify any issues with the operation of the video system.
