Most probably camera is being turned on for a long time, thus whenever you want to recheck the footage you have to skip a lot because of the long footage captured by it, usually, the device is mounted on a pan-tilt platform capturing the limited frame zone. No one likes to watch a long period of films recorded by it, all we need to check out is the recorded part wherever the motion takes place. For such purposes, motion detection techniques have examined and installed in the camera. Now what will happen is that your device gets turned on only if some motion takes place in the particular frame zone rather than that the device will be off and no recording will get generated at that instance. 

Though the detector is capable enough to turn on when the motion takes place and turn off after some time passes away. In this way, one can even optimize the storage of the CCTV.  Furthermore, it can even detect the crime motions, the sensors have installed in a manner that if any equipment like a gun, knife, etc. is been detected by the gadget then it’ll immediately send a mail to the nearer police department. Though, many crimes existing get rescued with the help of motion detection init. Be choosy about the frame range selection as if it is saved then some of them don’t provide another option. Motion detection in the tool helps you in getting what you need.

Infra-Red Lighting

Sun keeps emitting many rays one of them: infrared rays, these rays are the only responsible rays to increase the temperature of any environment. Way similar to it infrared lighting is been introduced. Visibility at night decreases because the light emerging from the moon is less intense; thus a normal tool cannot record clearly any of the motion. Thus, a combination of infrared lighting plays a vital role here.

To make the recording crystal clear even at the night, infrared light sources are been attached at two places of the camera, one is near the axis of it to synchronize the signal while the other placed at the off-axis to generate the pupil images. This pupil image is then visible with the iris and eyelids of a human.

Usually, infrared light sensors are active always, they turn on when they sense the darkness in the surrounding, after then the light emerging from the equipments if sense a temperature above than the threshold temperature it starts recording the video, that too with the exact perception. Infrared lights keep turning on and off varyingly and accordingly to the light level. Furthermore, those lights are inexpensive which means it will not add a lot to your overall cost. I would like to advise you to get it installed because anyhow security is important every moment.

Programmed number plate recognition

As we discussed earlier technology and digitalization of gadgets had gone so far ahead, along with the numerous advantages out of which one advantage is programmed number plate recognition. A programmed raspberry pi installed in it that too with the estimation framework lies less. How will it help you?

Many visitors keep on visiting in our address, at such instances any unknown person can have a visit and can do any crime, if it happens then your tool will detect the number plate of the vehicle on which that unknown person has arrived, and then you can have all the details related it. Moreover, you can install these types of cameras at your residence gate or at the parking places. Just encode your vehicle numbers in your gadget, thus whenever you are trying to access your parking the tool will detect the number plate and opens the parking automatically. Such sensors improve CCTV security. You can even establish a stopping board and get to board programming.

Face recognition

It is much similar to number plate recognition, but in this case, the process of verifying is different. Basically there are 4 steps to recognize the face of anyone detected by it:

Step 1: Upload the picture of you and your family, whether standing alone or in a crowd. Make sure to add a bit recent picture because it is going to be saved in your data until and unless you change it again.

Step 2: Now the software present in it will read the geometry and biometrics of your picture face. It derives information like distance between your eyes, the distance between your forehead and chin, and much more. After recognizing it creates a face signature.

Step 3: The facial signature is then represented as a mathematical number and stored in the data. According to the report of May 2018, it is been deducted that 412 million facial images have uploaded yet.

Step 4: Whenever the device captures any face it starts matching with its data, and if your image is uploaded in it then you grant the access otherwise it will activate the security alarm in the home.

Along with the number plate recognition, facial recognition also contributes a lot in the terms of home security.

Collecting evidence

Many crimes take place in the day – to – day life some of them are being captured in the equipments, if there is a crime occurring outside your house, then your tool will sense the motion and will start capturing the activities going on there, that activities will get stored in the device database.

The camera placed on the pan-tilt will recognize and capture the face of the victims in the data, also if it notes down any criminal weapons it will alert the police, and as the police arrive they can check the data to reach to the victims, as FBI has over 800+ million facial images in their database, thus identifying one with the image that your recording will help them a lot. Furthermore, it will collect the shreds of evidence if any uncertain activity takes place in your quarters, and as soon as any uncertain activity takes place it will drop up a home alert bell.

It has the capability to inform police patrols anytime as it would be having infrared lights that work best in the nighttime.

 The best ever use of the camera in terms of security and its ability is keeping the records. We are now familiar with almost every property of the this device is whether it is number plate recognition, face recognition, infrared lights, collecting evidence, etc. Whenever your tool  records any of the above-mentioned things it automatically saves that data and keeps records in the Google drive itself, thus one who is having the access can log in into Google drive and can get whatever the records they need.

Not only this, but it also keeps several records like the number of visitors coming by vehicle, number of visitors coming without a vehicle, number of ins and outs respective house members did, and much more. All these processes and activities are recorded with the utmost punctuality of time. Also, the number of plates and face scanned remains in your data unless and until you delete them all out.

Last but not least, you might have experienced that sometimes you do not receive the message instantly there’s a time gap in between the incident and messaging, ever thought why is it so?

It is because of the lack of technology and the internet, cameras with the wired systems are a bit slower coz firstly they process the activity from wire then it gets compiled in the database which takes a bit more time. While in the case of wireless systems the activity reaches directly in the database with the help of the internet and drives, which makes the process quicker. And this is the only reason behind the lack of messaging in wired systems.

In a wireless system, as the data is been collected directly in the drive, it can let you know by messaging you in your Email, Whatsapp, SMS, Call, etc. You will receive the message in your respective device connected with it. Having these kinds of digitalized gadgets are worthy to be in your collection if you are achieving the terms of home security innovation.
