MemoCam saves construction costs

August 2005 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Theft from building sites is not new. This ongoing problem is not only costly but can delay completion of buildings when construction is delayed while waiting for replacement materials. This problem can be compounded as more and more sub contractors join the site as the building nears completion. At this crucial stage, the finishing materials can be very expensive, and often imported. These could also be difficult to replace in time.

Video Domain Technologies has invented all-in-one, palm-sized visual evidence recorders, including motion sensors, covert cameras and a digital video recorder in a single detector case.

The palm size systems can be built into almost anything. Clients have to date, concealed the MemoCam units in utility boxes, light fittings, metal and plastic poles, box files and even a toy teddy bear. They can be connected to any pinhole camera, snapping pictures at predetermined intervals or when movement is detected.

Image sequences are recorded upon external/internal dry contact activation as well as on video motion and passive infrared-sensor dual detection. The pictures are recorded onto removable memory cards. Depending on the settings, some units can even record up to 100 000 pictures at very high frame rates. Each picture has the time and date imbedded in the picture. They can be printed or sent by e-mail.

The compact visual evidence recorders enable users to view and record events and individuals of interest in realtime for immediate action or later review. The product range includes MemoCam units with built in infrared detectors, DVR units, weatherproof DVR systems, Memocar as well as MemoCams built into clocks.

The MemoCam family features a range of advanced digital detection and evidence-capture solutions in simple compact plug and play designs.

Video Domain products are distributed locally by Emergency Reaction Services.
