IP convergence provides security

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2016 - Vol 1 Residential Estate (Industry), CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, IT infrastructure

With an increasing demand for security and communication systems in residential estates, integrators face numerous challenges to deploy state-of-the-art systems in the shortest time frame possible, without breaking the bank. According to Marco de Ru, head of product management at MiRO distribution, the solution to these challenges lies within the wireless IP surveillance industry.

US wireless company Ligowave offers the perfect alternative to traditional cabled infrastructure. The Ligowave products provide the performance and reliability of cabled installations, but without the time consuming hassles of laying down cabled infrastructure.

With a Ligowave wireless network in place, security companies can deploy the Vivotek IP-based surveillance system. The Vivotek IP81XX is ideal for use at residential estate gates, and when specialised lenses are used, vehicle number plates can be easily identified.

Security companies can add an extra level of security by using the wireless infrastructure for internal voice over IP (VoIP) communication between residents and security managers. Grandstream Networks specialises in cost effective VoIP hardware, from phones to IP PBX systems, to ensure seamless routing of calls between extensions.

With Grandstream’s range of Android-based video phones estate residents also have the functionality to use security applications to view video and cameras on their wall-mounted Grandstream phone. Additionally, the video range from Grandstream has built-in wireless, providing users with the functionality to either connect to a wireless network or, by using a cable, to convert the phone into a wireless hotspot.
