A closed circuit camera is considered by many as a remote eye and recorder to
watch over the designated area. The implementation of a CCTV system, properly
designed and applied, can be extremely profitable to an institution.

It is a highly sought after solution to deter, apprehend and prosecution of offenders.
For security purpose, the main objective of the CCTV system should, first and
foremost, be used as a psychological deterrent in preventing crime and not just for
apprehension of perpetrators.

Today, the application of surveillance cameras can be seen in every sector of the
market be it for crime prevention, construction progress monitoring to disaster control

At ELID, we have assembled a complete suite of surveillance components to take the guesswork out of putting together a reliable and cost effective surveillance solution
for your facility, your remote offices or your home.


Conventional cameras or analog cameras capture and store images in standard
definition. This was the technology available to many users at the time. As such many
instances, the user (during video playback) could see the crime unfolding but, however,
could not make out clearly the image of the perpetrator for investigation purposes.

If this worries you; which you should, you may now consider investing and installing
High Definition (HD) cameras. A high definition camera is a multi-megapixel IP
camera providing crisp and crystal images of up to 15 times image resolution than
an ordinary analog surveillance camera. It works just like your digital picture camera
taking sharp images every time so that every detail of the scene is captured,
identifiable and more importantly usable as evidence prosecution.

With the growing trend of IP- based infrastructure deployment coupled with newer
technology of HD cameras and affordability, users can now look forward and take
advantage in bringing this superior performance in video surveillance into their
modern facility layout.


Video Analytics is a new and promising technology in surveillance monitoring. As we are all aware, all standard video images are merely captured and are viewed and processed by human to identify if that scene is normal or a crime is taking place. Video Analytics assist the human to detect such behaviours or incidents before the guards are aware of it. It is based on the analogy of using the computer operating a set of algorithms to analyze the content of the video to help detect anomalies and alarm the operator to further increase security enforcement effectiveness.

Video Analytics promotes active surveillance, prompting alarms to operators and guards to take immediate response.
