How PSA and Penguin Rd Electrics Solved a CCTV Issue

Challenging problems require innovative solutions.

PSA Products has got what it takes to overcome even the most complicated physical, geographical, and budget constraints when installing a home or business security system. The company excels at determining the most practical and cost-effective method, providing their happy customers with a functional solution that won’t break the bank.

The following case study documents just one of the many occasions where PSA has succeeded in doing exactly that:

A client required a live monitoring service at the front entry and the driveway that ran along the side of their property. The issue arose because the camera was located some 200 metres from the NVR control room, which was at the back of the property. Due to the distance involved, standard cables and PoE switches wouldn’t have been a budget-friendly or practical option.

PSA and Penguin Rd Electrics proposed a solution which involved installing a state-of-the-art Honeywell IP Camera System that utilizes a Wireless Access Point (WAP). This kind of system serves as a wireless transmitter and receiver, sending an IP signal from the camera towards a receiver which connects to the NVR through a network switch.

Running at 2.4 GHz, this equipment retains crystal clear video clarity and involves almost zero latency at the NVR. Furthermore, the method is substantially more cost-effective than wiring cables over such a distance.

Both the client and the contractor were thrilled with the outcome.

EQUIPMENT USED:

  • Honeywell 8ch NVR (Part No: PSAHEN08103)
  • Honeywell 8MP IP Camera (Part No: PSAHBD8PR1)
  • IP-Com 2.4GHz Wireless Access Point, 500m range (Part No: PSACPE3)
  • IP-Com 4 Port PoE Switch (Part No: PSAF1105P-4-63W)
We installed cameras along the side of the building.
We installed a Wireless Access Point near the camera, as well as a power supply and PoE switch. Two cameras can simultaneously transmit signals through a single WAP.
A WAP was installed on both ends, seen here circled in red. The distance between the two is approximately 200m.
The setup can capture clear high resolution imagery.

Why Use A Honeywell IP Camera System

IP cameras have become the option of choice in the security industry due to their high resolution capabilities, analytical features, expandability and ease of installation.

Standing for Internet Protocol, IP monitoring systems can capture, transmit, and store footage through a computer network and can connect to the internet.

In most applications, IP CCTV cameras will be connected to a Network Video Recorder (NVR), which processes information and stores data. However, if there should be more than 64 cameras or any kind of special analysis, the IP CCTV system could be connected to a computer server using central management software to fulfil these requirements.

As a leading brand in the commercial security sector, Honeywell has been manufacturing cutting edge products for over 75 years. The trusted multinational brand has earned a reputation for its commitment to cyber security, researching technological innovations and producing quality devices that exceed all international standards.
