MeerCams Rapidly Deployed Around UK To Stop Copper and Metals Theft

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

The Camvista MeerCams battery powered GPRS mobile wireless motion detector CCTV remote security cameras are being deployed by companies and organisations around the UK to help stop and combat the dramatic rise in copper theft and other now valuable metal thefts.  Metal and copper theft is now the fastest growing crime in the UK costing businesses and organisations over £650m per year – in 2011 reaching epidemic proportions which is expected to greatly increase the $650m yearly loss of copper theft

Stop Copper Theft - MeerCams

Copper prices have soared to over £4,854 per tonne making copper theft very profitable to serious criminals and organised gangs by stealing copper products at remote locations to sell onto the black market.  Hitting Railway companies, Power Utility companies, Water Operators, Telephone companies, Construction companies and Void Property companies to name a few business sectors that are being targeted by criminals to steal copper and other valuable metals because some of their business locations are unstaffed and remote where the copper products are being used for their business requirements

Because power and telephone/broadband lines are required for traditional security CCTV security monitoring many companies and organisations are unable to protect their remote locations with CCTV monitoring cameras to stop and reduce copper and metals theft at their remote facilities.

However – the Camvista self powered wireless GPRS mobile CCTV security monitoring camera system – the MeerCam - is now allowing Network Rail, Power Utility companies, Water Boards, Telephone companies, Construction companies and Void property Housing Associations and Council’s and Education Authorities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to greatly reduce their risk to metal and copper theft crimes by rapidly deploying the MeerCam battery powered infrared motion detector CCTV portable surveillance cameras at any remote security location to combat the organised criminals and gangs that are making theft of copper and metals the fastest growing crime in and around the UK.

Already some construction companies have seen the full benefits of deploying the MeerCams onto their construction sites to stop and catch theft of copper and metals.  On one construction site over a three month period the MeerCams have stopped three serious break-ins with the police being able to arrest and charge 9 criminals who were trying to steal copper and metal from that construction site on 3 seperate attempts.  Proving that the MeerCam is not only a good deterrent to stop and prevent theft at remote locations that are unmanned out of working hours but will actually help to catch the criminals that are targeting remote locations for copper and metal theft

Managing Customer Throughput with Remote Alert

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

ra_shopMany Remote Alert customers, are using our online security camera monitoring application, not just for security camera monitoring but for other important business monitoring applications. Remote Alert is ideal, for Retail sector, Tourism and Visitor attractions, Bars and Restaurants who would like to manage customer throughput, indoors, or outdoors, at their business premises. For example, one of our first Remote Alert client’s, a small Jewellery shop in Edinburgh, purchased our Remote Alert security camera monitoring package, to allow management to monitor an indoor IP wireless security camera system, remotely. The Edinburgh based Jewellery shop, currently has a number of indoor CCTV security cameras in operation, with a security video recorder, where they can view all CCTV camera footage from videos 24 hours a day. However, their traditional CCTV camera system doesn’t allow them to view the cameras, or video footage, remotely, from a computer device. (more…)

Registration Plate caught on Wireless CCTV

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

 

regMany Remote Alert customers, when purchasing our security camera monitoring package, request if our range of wireless CCTV network cameras will allow them to view car registration plates, in car parks, driveways, online, from our Remote Alert security camera monitoring application.

 

To show a working example, from a Fife based Taxi car company, of an IP security wireless camera in operation, overlooking the parking area where his taxi cars are cleaned and fuelled, the saved pictures clearly show a good view of the car registration number.  The saved images have been taken by one of our wireless CCTV security cameras, Y-cam, which has a weatherproof housing for outdoor camera installations.  In darkness, at nightimes, the security camera images will produce a different result because infrared led’s normally reflect on vehicle registration plates.

Setting Up Infrared IR LED Lighting on YCAM Knight and Black

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

When setting the Infrared IR LED lighting on the YCAM Knight or Black you select Camera in the admin section, folowed by Night Vision Setup, you will be presented with the following page like below:- 

In our experience we find that the above settings work well indoors when there are a lot of reflections from surfaces See Below:-

 

 

Switching “Black and white mode” off gives a good low light colour image see below:-

Our suggestion is to play around with the setting at different times of the day and night to find which  settings suits your required image using the built in Infrared LED Lighting on this wireless IP Camera, and on YCAM have launched the outdoor housing it makes the Knight and Black camera a lot more flexible. TIP Remember keep a note of settings and a snap shot to help to see best images.

If we were looking through glass we would switch off the “Infrared LED Control” and switch on “Moonlight mode” This would give a good low light image at night.
