us is the security
camera system. This is an amazing, fit and forget, security
system. Being digital it requires absolutely NO attention
or servicing, no tapes and although designed for Taxis, Buses & Trains,
it is equally useful for remote & unmanned sites. Watch

Series Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is a high-quality compact
recorder that combines the functions of a recorder and
multiplexer into one unit. Having no tapes to maintain,
replace, or rewind means that this recorder can be set
up once and virtually forgotten about until and unless
a review of the video becomes necessary. It also dramatically
reduces the down time for maintenance or repair that is
generally associated with VCRs.
can be placed on a shelf or desktop for easy access to
the front panel controls for operation and programming.
A quad display
of live video from all four cameras can be viewed while
can be done continuously, for a scheduled time in a 24-hour
period, or on an alarm input basis. Each camera has its
own alarm input for alarm-activated recording. Using a
combination of these programmable features allows the user
to extend the total recording time.
one with a 30 GB hard drive and the second with a 60 GB
hard drive, generally allow continuous recording for up
to two or four weeks respectively under the most common
recording conditions. Recording time will vary depending
on quality, number of cameras recorded, and record rate.
When the available hard drive storage space is consumed,
the DX1000 automatically begins recording over the oldest
video. This means that the user need not have to worry
about rewinding or changing tapes, or replacing them as
they wear out.
can be stopped at any time to play back video. Entering
the desired time, date, and camera number allows the user
to instantly access any recorded video. Search functions
during playback allow frame-by-frame viewing, fast playback,
and playback of alarm events.
uses password protection to guard against unauthorized
or unintentional recording or playback.
This device was designed because of the terrific rise in the crime of
till snatching in the Swansea area. This is committed by gangs of youths,
who simply run into a shop, grab the cash register and run out to a waiting
vehicle, usually stolen, and make their getaway.
of the lack of skill required, in committing this crime,
and the ease with which small sums of money could be
had, made this a real copy cat crime. Even if there was
very little money in the till, the cost of such an attack
could be quite high. Usually the cash register is destroyed
and there have even been cases where the whole electrical
system of the shop has been damaged by ripping out the
wires. Added to this is the ever present threat of violence
to the staff and the trauma suffered by even the hardiest
of people, when involved in such an attack.
Baywatch Security then developed
the TILLGUARD, which consists of a steel box containing
a very loud battery powered alarm which is triggered by
a chain. The steel box is riveted to the cash register
and a small hole drilled in the counter top. The chain
is then passed through the hole and secured by a padlock
underneath the counter. The slack in the chain allows the
till to be moved and lifted a few inches to allow cleaning
and the recovery of anything that has rolled under it,
but if the till is jerked away, then the chain prevents
its removal and also operates the 130 decibel alarm.
If the cash register requires
maintenance, or even removal to a new position, then the
shopkeeper merely unlocks the padlock. Due to the simplicity
of design and the ease of fitting the cost can be kept
low. There has never been a theft of a till that is protected
by the TILLGUARD.
- Visible deterrent.
- Simplicity of design.
- Allows the cash register
to be prominently displayed to encourage impulse buys.
- Does away with the "Fort
Apache the Bronx" appearance of some till defenses.
- Ease of cleaning etc.
- Low cost.
- Maintenance free and foolproof.
- Minimum disruption on installation.
- Ease of removal for maintenance
This is a system which was designed by Baywatch Security and which has
- It can be used as a silent
theft alarm, by emitting large clouds of coloured smoke
out of the exhaust, if stolen.
- It can also be set up
to be used as a smoke screen, in order to prevent carjacking,
kidnapping or robbery. This is seen as a very effective
defense for the diplomat or executive who may feel
threatened, or that his family may be at risk.
We are now using and can supply and install various security devices,
specially designed to work on computers. These systems can either use
an existing computer or network, or be used on a dedicated unit specially
designed for them. Due to the reduction in
cost of PCs and the availability of specialised security software and
hardware, they can now be considered as an affordable alternative to
traditional monitoring and recording devices, e.g. time lapse VCRs, monitors
multiplexers etc. Digital systems can offer many advantages over traditional
systems, some of which are fisted below.
- Speed of Operation
- Digital Image Storage
- Less Labour Intensive.
- Less Maintenance
- Can use Existing Equipment
- Remote Monitoring
- Easy Future Updates
1. Speed of Operation
When an alarm condition is detected, by PIR
detector, door contact, panic button, motion detector or
any other type of input, the computer can trap the desired
length of action within 1/10th of a second. The speed of
this reaction means that "activation only recording" is
now an economical proposition, in many circumstances this
can be a much more efficient method, especially where multiple
camera systems exist. There are many benefits from "activation
only recording" that can be beneficial to any business.
- No need to review hours and
hours of tape, resulting in great savings in both labour
costs and staff satisfaction.
- Can be used to monitor staff
movements throughout your establishment, e.g., stock
room doors, fire doors, cars or people entering and leaving
car parks etc.
- It's ideal for monitoring
little visited areas and remote sites, as there is no
need for staff to visit the sites to change the video
tapes, that have been recording nothing.
- By using a modem and alarm
can be triggered and the reason for the alarm confirmed
over a normal telephone line by viewing both the live
and the recorded video, so reducing false alarms.
2. Digital image
Because the images are stored as digital information inside the computer
there is no need to keep replacing worn out video tapes in order to keep
up the quality of the image.
- There is no degradation in
picture quality when copied, unlike
videotape which degrades each time.
- The images generated can
be enhanced, using the software package included, allowing
you to digitally zoom in, alter the brightness and contrast,
sharpen the image and many other useful features. This
can be useful for blowing up a number plate, for example.
- Being digital, the image
can be saved to floppy disc, sent down telephone lines,
transferred to video or printed out on paper.
3. Longer Life and
Because of its digital design and the extra
design features that we have built in, the computer should
prove far more reliable in the
- There is no requirement for
the routine maintenance, of the type associated with
VCRs, e.g. head cleaning and replacement etc.
- The computer system is also
less likely to become obsolete as time goes by, being
easily updated with new software.
- There is less need for staff
to visit sites just to change tapes when maybe there
has been no activity.
4. Can Use Existing
Where there is a suitable computer already installed, the hardware and
software can be simply added to it, allowing the computer to be used
for its normal tasks, while the security software runs in the background.
- Reduces cost of buying VCRs,
- Allows for colour cameras
to be used at reasonable prices.
- Easily expanded by using
inexpensive hard disc memory.
- Very useful for schools & colleges,
where computers are idle
in the holidays & changing tapes means visiting the
