Digital Video Surveillance & Security provides a blueprint for the IP-based electronic security system clients need, allowing security professionals to protect their client’s place of business or home. The author gives detailed plans on the best camera position, areas of coverage, and hardware and software to select to maximize the effectiveness of newer lower-cost networked technologies. Clear, step-by-step descriptions and detailed illustrations describe the integration of such components as the current or new security system, door and window sensors, or other access controls, offering the capability of instantly launching a video of the area under surveillance on a computer or HDTV.

Today’s digital video surveillance solutions are networked, digitally archived, offering granular, managed accessibility from anywhere (any office, home, PDA, or┬ásmart phone), and providing interoperability and simple scalability. With recent advances in technology, DVS is economically attainable for most businesses. Security consultants can use this information to guide their clients in making budget-friendly choices of design and equipment and assembling the optimal system for their needs. Systems installers can use this step-by-step illustrated guide to master this crucial new technology.

Perfect for the Serious Home or Small Business Owner This may be the most accessible technical book I’ve ever used. I was interested in setting up multiple cameras, quality images, night capability and having enough information to understand the technical-economic tradeoffs. I was tempted to buy a catalogue system, but couldn’t find anything that really seemed to do what I wanted. That’s a viable solution if your requirements are simple and you don’t care much about quality or long term storage. A professional was the next step, but even if I’d hired a pro, I wanted to know enough to make the decisions and manage the project. After reading this though, I decided to skip the expense and markup of a pro. No, the book doesn’t make you a “pro” and I wouldn’t take on anyone else’s project.The book is divided into two parts, Part 1 is about chosing the equipment, Part 2 is about executing the project. Chapter 2&3 cover digital video overview and equipment, 3&4 cover wired and wireless networking; for me that was the value…

Comprehensive overview of digital video surveillance and security Anthony Caputo has spent more than 20 years in the digital video surveillance field and currently works with IBM Global Technology Services on the Digital Video Surveillance Homeland Security Projects. In short, Caputo knows whereof he speaks and he is kind enough to share it with the rest of us. As a result of my work, I have a small degree of familiarity with digital video surveillance systems and a much greater understanding of networking. I am impressed by how much information Caputo packs into a mere 314 pages of text. His writing style is clear, even though many of the concepts he addresses are quite complex. Caputo’s focus is on larger scale projects. If you’re interest is in setting up a remote controlled camera to monitor the baby’s room, you’ll find the information here, but may not know how to navigate all the information extraneous to such a project. If, on the other hand, you need to design and implement a networked multi-camera surveillance system…
