What is professional remote monitoring? Why would I offer Professional Remote Monitoring? What do I need to do to connect to a central station? Remote monitoring is a service given by a central monitoring station which will monitor the CCTV system on a premises. Central Monitoring provides an effective monitoring service as the operator will receive only alarm-triggered events to view, verify and respond to based on pre-determined actions set by the end-user. The VXH264 and a professional monitoring service offers the chance for any customer to have access to a high quality, effective monitoring solution they could not have previously afforded. A professional monitoring service can offer cost-effective protection for vulnerable and at-risk workers, particularly out of hours. By outsourcing your monitoring needs, security managers have the flexibility to reduce the cost of their in-house security operation. Install a VXH264 Digital Video Recorder Compatible with Central Monitoring Stations hosting the Immix Software platform all over the UK and Ireland Connect to a router and broadband line Set-up of the email-send facility takes under 5 minutes. Following the configuration and setting the port forward, the machine can be connected to any Immix Central Station with one phone call. The most efficient way of monitoring your CCTV for every pound spent You can offer more at no extra cost Connecting to a Central Station could not be simpler Connecting the VXH264 to a remote monitoring station The customer's site security installation is connected to by broadband line. Example system specification Using a VXH264 with remote monitoring External Detector @ Router Internet High Speed Dome Signal Transmitted to Remote monitoring station Operator issues warning Audio Horn The remote monitoring station detects alerts and events based on site equipment such as PIR detectors and access control points. The event is then verified visually using the CCTV system to check if it is a false alarm. Should the event be a genuine threat, action can be taken based on a set of predetermined instructions agreed by the end-user. www.videcon.co.uk/Think Cameras Alarm Trigger Devices E.g.

Using colour-coded menus and various control options it is easy to program and operate. Every Concept Pro VXH264 digital video recorder is compatible with the Immix software platform, used by many leading central monitoring stations across the UK and Ireland. The panorama search facility allows the user to select a single channel over a 24 hour period which is displayed on-screen in 8 intervals of 3 hours. Navigation is quick thanks to a status bar and shortcut menu on all live view displays, which assists with ‘one click’ access to each main function. Requirements • Broadband connection • Router • Contact your preferred station In the example above, we are looking for an individual walking away from the scene. As opposed to viewing a single time of day from the selected camera, 8 time intervals are displayed at once. Using the fast forward function at the selected time interval, the individual can be identified within minutes. Instant Playback Smartphone Remote Connection Rapid Response Connection via web browser Via web browser The instant playback function allows users to select and view recently recorded footage at the push of a button. Footage from a selected camera can be instantly accessed from the live view screen. The VXH264 range of digital video recorders can be accessed by using any smartphone with a web browser.

An IR Remote Control is included with every unit and is a convenient way for a user to configure and operate the VXH264. The VA-KBDPRO+ can control one or more VXH264 units and is compatible with many telemetry protocols including Pelco-P and Pelco-D Genuine Pentaplex CMS PRO Reserve Data Management Real-time Recording The VXH264 digital video recorder operates 5 key functions simultaneously without affecting the frame rate: Every Concept Pro VXH264 is compatible with our free central monitoring software. Ideal for multi-site operations, the Concept Pro VXH264 allows users to connect, view and operate up to 64 channels simultaneously, creating a central monitoring station at the host computer. Recorded events can be 'reserved' to a data management screen. This function allows the user to build up a list of events for easy and convenient archiving. The data management screen logs the number of 'burns' for each event. The complete range of VXH264 digital video recorders can record at 25FPS @ CIF across all channels (2CIF on 4Ch). D1 recording resolution can be achieved at 7FPS across all channels. • • • • • Recording Playback all channels simultaneously Live view Network playback/Live view Local/Network remote set-up Channel frame rates can be programmed individually to achieve a balance between the quality of footage, the internal storage available and the number of channels in use on the digital video recorder.
