Wondering how can we evaluate your security needs and recommend solutions from our office in Portland, Oregon? With our Virtual Integration Program, we work with all of our customers to produce quality video security solutions. By answering a few simple questions, our experts can get a good handle on what your security needs are and help you determine what video security products will be the right fit for your site.
The VIP program offers the following services free of charge:
1. Remote “Site Security Audit” of your facilities/building
We'll do a virtual walkthrough of your facility and grounds to understand your site layout and current security systems. After an initial phone consultation with you, we use blueprints, floor plans, rough sketches, Google Earth, and digital pictures of the property to determine overall project scope.
2. Evaluation of your security needs
Using the information we’ve gathered during the Site Security Audit, we’ll discuss your project to ensure we have solid understanding of your objectives and security concerns. As part of this step our video surveillance experts consider best practices for your industry and application to create a security plan for your project.
3. Recommendations for camera locations
Our experts will also make suggestions about camera placement. We know the right questions to ask in order to determine where security is needed. We’ll help make sure that cameras are placed where they are going to be the most effective.
4. Recommendations for networking, wireless, and cable locations
In addition to camera placement, our IP video experts can also design a wireless network and plan transceiver locations if necessary. We’ll evaluate strategic locations for cabling for your video surveillance system offering suggestions on how much will be needed and where to run it.
5. Recommendations for video management and storage
Whether you are using an IP or CCTV security camera system, our video experts will help determine how much hard disk drive storage is needed and make recommendations for video management solutions. If your system will be using IP cameras, we’ll recommend network video recorder (NVR) server or video management software (VMS) options. This ensures camera compatibility and video recording performance. For systems using CCTV cameras, we will provide recommendations for digital video recorders (DVR) based on security and system growth needs.
6. Technical Support
Getting started with an IP security camera system can be tricky, especially if the technology is new to you. Our experienced technical support team is standing by ready to answer any questions or concerns that you may have. We can also connect to your computer remotely to provide direct assistance.
For those who need to install cameras ASAP or are less comfortable with technology, we recommend our affordable Camera Configuration and NVR/VMS Configuration services. For truly easy and fast installation, your cameras will be ready to mount right out of the box. We’ll take care of documentation, firmware updates, setting IP addresses, and camera assignment within network video recorder (NVR) or VMS software. We make surveillance set-up easy!
