From the need of increasingly efficient security and monitoring solutions, the surveillance market is in constant expansion. Initially, with analogic cameras, these solutions possibilities were limited to the conditions of the available equipment, apart from restrictions on the image quality and basic surveillance functions. The insertion of IP Technology on the surveillance world increased considerably the market's horizon. With superior image quality and every possibility that both control and IP automation allow, the television closed circles reach not only the purpose of security and surveillance but also access control, perimeters and peripherals in an integrated and easier way, market information management and video intelligence. The new smart surveillance systems goal is to allow the operator to work each time fewer reactively, so the system increasingly works proactively, decreasing flaws and increasing reliability and the operator's quality of work.
