Over 50 Years of Safety and Security Experience
For more than half a century, BRK Brands, Inc. has made the home-safety and
security products that make your job easier. These products are marketed under
the First Alert, OneLink, Family Gard and BRK brand names. Our products
are built to the highest standard which has earned the company a leadership
role in the home-safety and security product categories. We are committed to
serving our customers, from you, the professionals who install our products, to
the families who count on them.
First Alert/BRK has introduced a line of Security Cameras targeted towards the
small business owner and high-end residential market. Until now, your customer’s
options have been limited. Spend thousands on the design, installation and
maintenance of complicated security systems or sacrifice quality and features for
other entry level systems. First Alert Security Cameras have all of the important
features your customers need for their small to medium security monitoring
requirements.
First Alert Quality Features:
First Alert Security Camera systems are available in systems that can accommodate
up to 4 or 8 cameras. For most residential and small business applications this is
sufficient for covering a front and rear entrance along with several inside locations
like the cash register, storage area, key warehouse locations or residential interior
rooms.
Wired or Wireless?
Wired Systems: Wired systems provide the most secure camera monitoring and are
perfect for new construction or anywhere access to an open cable run is available.
In addition, the wired systems supply power to the cameras from the cable so no
electrical outlets are required near each camera.
Wireless Systems: First Alert wireless systems operate on a secure 2.4 GHz digital signal
using frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) technology. This FHSS technology
is highly resistant to narrowband interference and is difficult to intercept. However,
as with any wireless transmission, it can be subject to interference, interception or
jamming under certain conditions. Wireless signals can be significantly reduced
depending on the structures the signal must go through. Concrete, copper and metal
pipes and heating ducts tend to reduce the signal length. In addition, the camera
needs to be plugged in to a 120V outlet near the camera. If no outlets are available
they will need to be installed first.

Small Business/Retail
Small Warehouse
Our wired systems have the capability of being monitored using any internet connection
or via a smart phone. For internet access you must have a static IP address. This is
usually available from your internet provider at an additional cost.
Longer runs may require an upgrade to RG59 Coax cable. First Alert kits ship with
economical AV cable that is designed to work well up to the length of cable provided,
usually around 60 feet. If longer distances between camera and DVR are required,
you will need to upgrade to RG59 Coax cable. We provide several lengths up to
300 feet. In addition, if you need to run cable for in-wall installations, then you may
require fire rated cable, FT-4/CMR UL approved for in-wall installations.

HOW TO CHOOSE
WHY FIRST ALERT SECURITY CAMERAS?
Do you need audio surveillance?
Our wireless systems and some of our wired cameras have the capability of audio
surveillance and recording. Be aware that audio surveillance in some states is illegal
or requires permission from one or both parties to record someone’s voice. Laws are
also different from residential vs. commercial applications. Be sure to check with state
or local authorities in your area for laws that may affect your installation.

The IP rating is used to specify the strength of the enclosure that surrounds electronic equipment
and is determined by specific tests. Each IP rating consists of using two separate measures. The
first is protection against solids; the second number is protection against liquids. So therefore an
IP rating of 65 is totally protected against dust and is protected against low pressure jets of water
from all directions with limited ingress permitted.

CAMERA KNOWLEDGE
COMPRESSION FORMATS
The foundation of these standards is JPEG, named after the group that developed
it in the mid-1980s, the Joint Photographic Experts Group. The first JPEG
standard was released in 1991. Another group of developers, in the late 1980s,
developed a standard for compressing moving pictures and audio - the Motion
Picture Experts Group, hence the name MPEG. MPEG-4 was released in 1998.
H.264/AVC (for advanced video coding), is the latest block-oriented motioncompensation-based codec standard developed by the ITU-T Video Coding
Experts Group (VCEG) together with the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts
Group (MPEG), and it was the product of a partnership effort known as
the Joint Video Team (JVT). The ITU-T H.264 standard and the ISO/IEC
MPEG-4 AVC standard (formally, ISO/IEC 14496-10 - MPEG-4 Part 10,
Advanced Video Coding) are jointly maintained so that they have identical
technical content. H.264 is used in such applications as Blu-ray Disc, videos
from You Tube and the iTunes Store, DVB broadcast, direct-broadcast
satellite television service, cable television services, and real-time video
conferencing. The standardization of the first version of H.264/AVC was
completed in May 2003. Version 13 was implemented in March 2010.
H.264 provides good video quality at substantially lower bit rates than previous standards. Basically
it compares compressed images using the first compressed image as a reference frame, then it sends
only the parts of the following images that differ from the reference image. This substantially lowers
the amount of data that needs to be transferred making it more attractive for video network delivery
and the delivery of HD video. H.264 is an open format and is available for anyone to implement.
M-JPEG is the most widely used picture compression format used today and is a video
codec where each frame is separately compressed into a JPEG image. The resulting
quality of video compression is independent from the motion in the image. Each individual
image is a complete JPEG compressed image, unlike H.264 which uses reference images.
M-JPEG is ideal for courtroom evidence, whereas H.264 could be challenged as every frame is not
a complete picture. M-JPEG technology is simpler however uses more storage space. As images are
compressed, clarity can suffer. A balance needs to be drawn at reducing image size and keeping the
image clear. Latest versions of H.264 improve clarity.
CAMERA MOUNTING OPTIONS
Most First Alert cameras can be either ceiling or wall mounted by simply reversing the mounting
camera stand. Holes are provided on both the top and bottom of the camera housing to accommodate
most mounting requirements. It’s important the camera is mounted correctly to ensure the image is not
upside down as the camera lens can only be positioned one way.
CAMERA KNOWLEDGE
COAX CABLE CONSTRUCTION
Not all coax cables are created equally. First Alert’s RG59 combined coax video and DC power cables
use a solid copper conductor for less voltage drop and better signal over longer distances. This also
makes the cable easier to handle versus other lower quality copper clad steel cables as it is less rigid
and will not remain coiled. In addition, the cables are double shielded with aluminum foil insulation
and braiding to help protect the video signal from interference. Each cable comes with BNC Male
connections on each end of the video cable and 1 jack male, 1 plug female on the ends of the DC power
cable (2.1mm I.D./5.5mm O.D.). We also supply two adaptor plugs for your convenience. One is a
BNC female to BNC female adaptor to provide a way to connect two lengths of cable together. The other
is a BNC Female to RCA male connector to attach cable to a TV RCA female (Yellow Video in) input. In
addition, we offer cable that is fire rated FT-4/CMR UL approved for in-wall installations. All of these
features ensure your customers of the highest quality installation.
