Monitoring of currency exchange / jewelry store
Library archives.
The information contained herein may be outdated.
Many currency exchanges and jeweler's shops are very small business premises. It is sometimes enough to install one CCTV camera directed towards the cashier's desk and the customer.
But the professional monitoring system should also cover:
  • surroundings of the entrance
  • entrance to the store (a camera ensuring identification of faces of the people entering)
  • the cashier's desk (detailed observation of transactions)
Depending on the size of the store, it may be sensible to mount additional camera providing general view of the room.
The choice of suitable equipment is very important. The price criterion alone is the wrong direction - without identification capability the system may be worthless.
The perpetrators of this robbery in Czestochowa, Poland, have not been caught - quality of the video material was insufficient for investigation.
The main purpose of video surveillance in such stores is strengthening the security and safety of the staff. The optimum deployment of cameras allows to follow a potential intruder before entering the shop - recording of the facial features or other details can be crucial for future identification of the person.
The images from the camera directed to the cashier's desk help to control the transactions and provide additional evidence in case of customer complaints etc. It is important to use quality camera, with appropriate lens capable of focusing on the key area.

Not so long ago the recording of surveillance video was performed by VCRs. Nowadays it is not acceptable in any case. All current CCTV systems are based on digital video recorders (DVRs) that do not require changing cassettes, ensure high quality and reliability, and provide a multitude of advanced functions over VCR technology.

The owners of currency exchanges or jewelery stores often have a chain of several or more shops. In this case, parallel to local recording, it is advisable to monitor such a chain via the Internet.
For such purpose there are needed DVRs with network modules. In the case of limited connectivity to the Internet (e.g. ADSL service), the preferred DVRs should achieve good network efficiency (H.264 compression). It is also important to get dedicated "multi-client" software enabling the user to monitor many locations on the computer's screen at the same moment.
All these features have ULTIMAX DVRs. Advanced network software allows full configuration and online access to the the live images from the surveillance cameras as well as to the archives - from any location with Internet access.

Monitoring of dispersed locations based on ULTIMAX DVRs

Without a need of continuous online monitoring, it is enough to employ DVRs of 7300 series ( M74080, M74160). For recording video with high resolution (4CIF - 704x576) and continuous online monitoring, the optimal choice is the 8100 series ( M78080, M78160) or SIGNAL DL-81xx series ( M78308 M78316). The DVRs can generate two independent streams. The first one - usually with the highest parameters - is used for local recording. The second is normally adjusted to the available bandwidth of the network.
The "two streams" concept is especially useful in the case of lower speeds of ADSL service or mobile connections (transmission to mobile phones, PDAs etc.)
HIKVISION-ULTIMAX and SIGNAL DVRs have many options and advanced functions. The most important features:
  • flexible configuration with possibility of assigning individual access rights of the users
  • very efficient network operation due to use of the latest H.264 compression
Typical devices used in these applications:

Due to the potential risk of damaging cameras by the perpetrator(s), the right choice is to use vandal proof devices, especially in places where they are within the reach of people.
We offer high class vandal-proof cameras. Below there are 4 models. Such cameras should be selected taking into account: sensitivity (the minimum level of the light in the room), necessity of automatic IR operation at night (in the case of observation after switching off the lighting), usefulness of focal length adjustment (the camera with varifocal lens enables the installer/user to adjust the size of the observed area), and the look.

A modern digital video recorder, in addition to storage function, is the web server and alarm control center. The class of the device is determined not only by its recording parameters, but also by the possibility of system expansion and compatibility with additional applications. For proper selection of the equipment the user and installer should take into account not only the current needs, but also think about future development of the system.
