VIDEO SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS
Integrating video surveillance into a home automation system
As per other services, video surveillance systems can also be integrated into a building equipped with a home automation system to manage different systems and then be controlled via smartphones or control units, and managed on the basis of pre-established scenarios.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VIDEO SURVEILLANCE
It is possible to use two different solutions when designing a video surveillance system:
– Implement a network consisting of several cameras connected to a central computer, which deals with software management and image sending
– Install video surveillance systems with DVR, able to make immediately recorded images available without the use of external PCs and software
In a domotic system, the video surveillance system also contributes to the creation of particular scenarios: in the event of an intrusion, for example, it may be possible to activate scenarios that provide for blocking outputs and shutters, turning on lights, activating alarms. sound, sending messages and so on.
