OMNI-EYES Video Transmission System.

This 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 ISDN line.

Each 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 ).

- Extremely user - friendly. Portable. The Omni Eyes unit is smaller than an A4 sheet of paper.
- An unlimited number of stations can contact each other by using dedicated passwords.
- The use of passwords can also be used to restrict which station could view various others.

This 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 their getaway.

Because 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.


  1. Visible deterrent.
  2. Simplicity of design.
  3. Allows the cash register to be prominently displayed to encourage impulse buys.
  4. Does away with the "Fort Apache the Bronx" appearance of some till defences.
  5. Ease of cleaning etc.
  6. Low cost.
  7. Maintenance free and foolproof.
  8. Minimum disruption on installation.
  9. 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
  • Versatility
  • Less Labour Intensive.
  • Reliability
  • Less Maintenance
  • Can use Existing Equipment
  • Remote Monitoring
  • Easy Future Updates

1. Speed of Operation
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 any business.

  • 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 false alarms.

2. Digital image Storage
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 the
long term.

  • 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 Existing Equipment
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 background.

  • 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.
  • Very useful for schools & colleges, where computers are idle
    in the holidays & changing tapes means visiting the premises.
