The image on the left is that of a traditional analogue CCTV system and the image on the right is how an Avigilon IP High-Definition camera displays your video footage.

With surveillance technology like this companies are now able to view more than just blurred figures walking around their premises. With Avigilon surveillance, business owners can now rest at ease knowing that their camera does what it is supposed to in those crucial moments – identify the perpetrator.

Apart from their excellent video footage, the Avigilon product range offers business owners a user-friendly control panel that can be accessed from anywhere on a mobile device or a desktop PC. This means that when management is away on a business trip they can still monitor their business 24/7. Because of Avigilon’s cloud storage facility, images captured can be stored off-site to give that extra level of security for when surveillance systems get vandalized or stolen.

Furthermore, Avigilon is able to integrate with your old analogue CCTV surveillance adding extra value to those important places within the business where high image quality is necessary. Apart from analogue integration, Avigilon systems can also integrate with other biometrics and access control software to provide extra security in businesses where expensive goods are stored.
