Video Transmission System.
state of the art unit allows remote video surveillance,
using ordinary telephone lines, of up to four cameras
per unit, from anywhere in the country (or even the world
). The unit, which is smaller than a laptop computer,
can both send and receive high quality video images,
without the need for a computer interface, modem or special
unit, which is both transmitter and receiver, is merely
plugged into the telephone line, and by using a password,
can contact any other Omni-Eyes transceiver in order
to receive pictures from the far end stations.
Omni-Eyes is so portable that
it could easily be taken from place to place and set
up in seconds. Instead of the usual dedicated telephone
line needed for other systems, along with the permanent
connection and large associated bills, any phone can
be used, and can still be used as a normal phone unless
the password is used.
An optional second control
unit can also be connected for alarm signaling and pan/
tilt/ zoom facilities if required.
1 - Up to four cameras can be observed from BOTH ends.
2 - Quad picture reception.
3 - Full frame of one picture at high resolution ( slow update ).
4 - Full frame of one picture medium resolution ( medium update ).
5 - Full Frame of one picture digitalised resolution ( fast update

can supply any type of conventional CCTV system,
as used by Burgerking, St David's
Cathedral and many other
device was designed because of the terrific rise in
the crime of till snatching in the Swansea area. This
is committed by gangs
of youths, who simply run into a shop, grab the cash register
and run out to a waiting vehicle, usually stolen, and make
of the lack of skill required, in committing this crime,
and the ease with which small sums of money could be
had, made this a real copy cat crime. Even if there
was very little money in the till, the cost of such
an attack could be quite high. Usually the cash register
is destroyed and there have even been cases where the
whole electrical system of the shop has been damaged
by ripping out the wires. Added to this is the ever
present threat of violence to the staff and the trauma
suffered by even the hardiest of people, when involved
in such an attack.
Baywatch Security then
developed the TILLGUARD, which consists of a steel
box containing a very loud battery powered alarm which
is triggered by a chain. The steel box is riveted to
the cash register and a small hole drilled in the counter
top. The chain is then passed thru the hole and secured
by a padlock underneath the counter. The slack in the
chain allows the till to be moved and lifted a few
inches to allow cleaning and the recovery of anything
that has rolled under it, but if the till is jerked
away, then the chain prevents its removal and also
operates the 130 decibel alarm.
If the cash register
requires maintenance, or even removal to a new position,
then the shopkeeper merely unlocks the padlock. Due
to the simplicity of design and the ease of fitting
the cost can be kept low. There has never been a theft
of a till that is protected by the TILLGUARD.
- Visible deterrent.
- Simplicity of design.
- Allows the cash
register to be prominently displayed to encourage
away with the "Fort
Apache the Bronx" appearance of some till defences.
- Ease of cleaning
- Low cost.
- Maintenance free
- Minimum disruption
- Ease of removal
for maintenance etc.
We are now using and can supply and install
various security devices, specially designed to
work on computers. These systems can either use
an existing computer or network, or be used on
a dedicated unit specially designed for them. Due
to the reduction in
cost of PCs and the availability of specialised security software and
hardware, they can now be considered as an affordable alternative to
traditional monitoring and recording devices, e.g. time lapse VCRs,
monitors multiplexers etc. Digital systems can offer many advantages
over traditional systems, some of which are fisted below.
- Speed of Operation
- Digital Image Storage
- Less Labour Intensive.
- Less Maintenance
- Can use Existing
- Remote Monitoring
- Easy Future Updates
1. Speed of
When an alarm condition is
detected, by PIR detector, door contact,
panic button, motion detector or any other type
of input, the computer can trap the desired length
of action within 1/10th of a second. The speed
of this reaction means that "activation only
recording" is now an economical proposition,
in many circumstances this can be a much more efficient
method, especially where multiple camera systems
exist. There are many benefits from "activation
only recording" that can be beneficial to
- No need to review
hours and hours of tape, resulting in great savings
in both labour costs and staff satisfaction.
- Can be used to monitor
staff movements throughout your establishment, e.g.,
stock room doors, fire doors, cars or people entering
and leaving car parks etc.
- It's ideal for monitoring
little visited areas and remote sites, as there is
no need for staff to visit the sites to change the
video tapes, that have been recording nothing.
- By using a modem
and alarm can be triggered and the reason for the
alarm confirmed over a normal telephone line by viewing
both the live and the recorded video, so reducing
Because the images are stored as digital information inside the computer
there is no need to keep replacing worn out video tapes in order to
keep up the quality of the image.
- There is no degradation
in picture quality when copied, unlike
videotape which degrades each time.
- The images generated
can be enhanced, using the software package included,
allowing you to digitally zoom in, alter the brightness
and contrast, sharpen the image and many other useful
features. This can be useful for blowing up a number
plate, for example.
- Being digital, the
image can be saved to floppy disc, sent down telephone
lines, transferred to video or printed out on paper.
3. Longer Life
and Less Maintenance
Because of its digital design and
the extra design features that we have built in,
the computer should prove far more reliable in
- There is no requirement
for the routine maintenance, of the type associated
with VCRs, e.g. head cleaning and replacement etc.
- The computer system
is also less likely to become obsolete as time goes
by, being easily updated with new software.
- There is less need
for staff to visit sites just to change tapes when
maybe there has been no activity.
4. Can Use
Where there is a suitable computer already installed, the hardware
and software can be simply added to it, allowing the computer to be
used for its normal tasks, while the security software runs in the
- Reduces cost of
buying VCRs, monitors etc.
- Allows for colour
cameras to be used at reasonable prices.
- Easily expanded
by using inexpensive hard disc memory.
useful for schools & colleges, where computers
in the holidays & changing tapes means visiting
