Tech Tuesday: CCTV Components [Infographic]

It's a sad fact that crime is a common occurrence in our society, especially in a metropolitan area such as Phoenix. Most businesses and individuals recognize the value and importance that installing a cctv security system can have. CCTV is a term that is thrown around a lot, but some may wonder, what exactly is a cctv system? To answer that, check out the informative infographic presented by PeaceForce Security below.


A basic summary of this infographic tells us that CCTV is made up of 3 basic componets:


Security cameras or surveillance cameras, as they are sometimes called can come in various forms. There are several types of resolution, physical shapes and other factors to consider when thinking what cctv cameras to install.


There are 2 basic types of recorders: DVR (Digital Video Recorders) and NVR (Network Video Recorders). The main difference between these two is that a DVR typcially sends the recordings to one camera, where as NVR sends the recordings to a network of cameras.


A wide variety of monitors can be used for a CCTV system. Some popular kinds are LED, LCD and TFT. The quality varies greatly on these so it's best to consult with a qualified representative at Phoenix Surveillance if you're wanting to purchase a monitor for your CCTV system.

Secure Your Hotel Guests and Employees with Security Monitoring

Operations managers in Glendale, who are in charge of the overall safety and security of hotel guests; you naturally think first of them when considering upgrading to a new security monitoring system system. But have you thought about your front desk employees on swing or graveyard shifts, who are registering guests into the wee hours of the morning and later? Job security to them doesn’t just mean a steady paycheck, but also a solid sense they are safely secure in the hotel environment at late night hours.

Installing an access control systemaccess control system, outfitted with security cameras, will give a level of assurance they are being safeguarded against the suspicious motives of strangers entering the hotel premises.

By having surveillance cameras located in strategic spots, employees gain a sense of control when they can monitor guest activity in the halls, common areas, lobbies, and areas surrounding the hotel property. If employees happen to see questionable activity occurring, they can respond quickly by calling on-site security officers, or law enforcement to handle the situation.

Surveillance cameras can also help to curb unauthorized entry to restricted areas, either by guests or outsiders seeking valuable information. Business assets such as private files, safes, and electronics kept in a secure location, and accessible only by security monitoring access control devices as card readers, electronic keys, and fingerprint scanners will permit only employees authorized to enter those spaces.

Installing a security monitoring system that includes access control security cameras, and access control restricted protection devices will give you peace of mind your hotel operations are under control.

We Still Love You, Pluto

We Still Love You, Pluto

Many of us nerds grew up absolutely enthralled by science and space exploration. One of the first things we learned was that there were 9 planets. I was even taught a little mnemonic device to memorize them that goes like this: My (Mercury) Very (Venus) Eager (Earth) Mother (Mars) Just (Jupiter) Served (Saturn) Us (Uranus) Pies (Pluto). We held this cherished belief to be true until our worlds came crashing down on us in 2006 when the International Astronomical Union demoted Pluto as a planet and classified it as a "dwarf planet".

Today marks that fateful day 11 years ago when Pluto was demoted. And while some of us may still be sad that Pluto is no longer technically a planet, it doesn't mean we can't appreciate the wonder and fascination of our little friend. Although down-graded, Pluto is still as interesting as ever. Below is an infographic from Forbes that gives us 9 Pluto facts!


So take this day to remember Pluto. The planet that was. And also take a moment to recognize all of the amazing scientists who make discoveries like this possible!
