Protect your people and property with VidGuard digital video security

VidGuard replaces analog tape-based security systems in any application that needs reliable, low-maintenance video security with Internet, LAN or modem access. The system leverages the low cost of high capacity hard disk drives and fast, powerful PCs to create a powerful, easy to use video security system

VidGuard runs on any Windows 98, NT or 2000 PC

Scalable, extensible video security

Whether you need 1 camera for your home or small business, or 1000 cameras distributed over multiple locations with hierarchical central station monitoring, VidGuard offers a solution.

VidGuard's modular, building block deployment strategy means that you can create a system exactly suited to your needs. Huge security systems are built from the same components as small systems - just more of them. Start with a basic security system and grow VidGuard along with your business.

Machine vision system sees moving objects

VidGuard continually monitors video input from all your security cameras, scanning for moving objects larger than a threshold size set by you. When a security event is triggered, it automatically records video to your PC's hard disk and optionally activates other control outputs, e.g. pager notification.. It detects movement directly from the video, so motion detection will work with any NTSC, PAL or SECAM video format security camera.

Flexible triggering and control options

VidGuard includes a built-in security CAD (computer aided design) tool that lets you route video, alarm inputs and relay outputs just by drawing on the screen - a computerized patch panel.

Trigger input and control options
  Machine vision motion sensing.
  Time lapse. e.g. 4 frames every 60 seconds.
  External contact open or close.
  Trigger gating for keyed entry control.
Output control
  Activate a relay for integration with an existing alarm system, e.g. sound siren, or control a door latch.
  Pre-recorded announcements over a loud speaker connected to your PC sound card, e.g. "For your safety and convenience this area is under electronic surveillance."
  Send a page to your beeper. When you get a page alert, you dial into VidGuard remotely to see what triggered the security event - offering 7/24 monitoring and virtually eliminating false alarms.
  Interface with pan/tilt/zoom cameras


System configuration and pricing guide

Select the option that best describes your security needs for configuration information and pricing.

Home Security   One or two security cameras with pager alert and remote access by modem or DSL.
Small Business   Two to sixteen security cameras running on one to four networked PCs, possibly in multiple locations. Video identity verification and electronic door release from any workstation on the network. Communication by modem, DSL or WAN.
Enterprise Security   Eight to 1000 cameras integrated with the corporate information system. Systems distributed over multiple buildings in multiple locations. Hierarchical central station control. Integration with existing alarm back-planes
Bars and Clubs   OCR (optical character recognition) of drivers licenses gives a fast, accurate go/no go of drinking age compliance.
MIS Security   Access control cards are fallible. For critical information systems, you need the additional protection of video access logs.
Parking Lot Security   VidGuard's integration with pan/tilt/zoom cameras makes it easy to protect large areas
