  • Clearer, more vivid facial images regardless of light conditions. thanks to cutting-edge, wide dynamic range technology.
  • Overexposure control to improve the quality and usability of images, such as reducing the bright impact of car lights at night to make a license plate more readable.
  • Minimized lens distortion, due to correction technology built into the camera.
  • Improved digital image stabilization to reduce motion blur caused by wind or vibration.
  • Advanced video analytics – including loitering and motion detection, people counting, queue management and more.
  • Audio event detection – including explosions, gunshots, glass breakage and screams.

Added Security

Most cameras offer vandal resistant features to prevent tampering. Some bullet style cameras are designed in explosion-proof housings.

Power and Image Storage for Security Cameras

Network Cameras and Video Recorders (NVRs)

PoE (Power over Ethernet) cameras can be connected to your network, requiring no additional power. Separate wireless cameras with their own low-voltage power source can be connected to the network via a wireless Ethernet bridge to cover areas such as parking lots and playgrounds.

Wired or wireless IP (Internet Protocol) cameras can connect to your network, but require a separate power source.

NVRs work with a VMS (video management system) to store images on your existing server, a virtualized server (a designated section of your server) or a designated server which Walsh can build and provide for you.

Other Ways to Store Images

Options include:

  • Appliance-based options -  A growing number of manufacturers offer appliances which may be:
    • Physical – incorporating both hardware and software, or
    • Virtual – in the form of a pre-configured virtual machine with all required software, from the operating system up, pre-installed and configured.
  • Web-based options – via the Cloud.
  • Hosted options - Hire service provider to host your camera server via the web.

Storage Backup

SD card slots are available in most cameras and support up to 512 GB of storage at the edge of the camera, preserving stored data in the event of an unstable network or storage connection. If your connection goes down, the cameras will record the images on the SD card.  When the connection is restored, the footage recorded on the SD card will automatically download to the Network, device or Cloud.  Many cameras today offer two SD cards for backup storage when needed.
