Comprehensive picture management - time is saved!
Redhand provides an effective surveillance system without imposing on valuable management time, except where absolutely necessary. When you do need it, the system is easy to use and very flexible. Images are only captured when there is movement and the picture management system gives a genuinely sequential view of events. Because Redhand takes still pictures on demand and the CD/DVD-Writer software allows you to archive selected episodes.
Runs unattended - more efficient use of time and resources!
Redhand only takes pictures when there is something to look at, so no constant monitoring is necessary. No dedicated tape or disk storage facilities are required and archiving is a simple process. You just select the period for which each camera will retain its pictures, after which time they are automatically deleted.
Software designed to operate across a data network!
It eliminates network and bandwidth problems because it does not use video. The cameras take digital still pictures at a rate of two per second, only when they are activated. All human activity is captured and every picture is a full colour, industry standard JPEG image of superb quality.
Low start-up costs, investment protection and predictable growth costs!
With other systems, your first camera can be expensive when you also have to buy multiplexers, monitors and tape/disk recorders up front. Redhand does not require any of this equipment and if you already have a PC, the start up costs can be very small. If you already have an existing computer network then the installation costs will also be greatly reduced. There is also minimal support overhead on IT, reflected in our confidence that a single day's training and familiarisation will be sufficient.
Low risk AND low maintenance costs!
Conventional CCTV solutions often involve expensive maintenance contracts. Redhand is an IT-based solution. It uses standard PCs, linked to digital cameras using standard networking protocols. All the functionality is in the software and while we are available for advice and support, you do not have to enter into a contract. If you wish to upgrade your PC, subscribe to new software releases or buy more cameras, you can do so.
Continued software development.
We will continue to develop additional features software that will be available free-of- charge under our warranty provisions and thereafter via a low cost software support and renewal contract. Enhancements - many suggested by our customers - recently introduced or planned in the next release include
- A single control for all picture management
- A "magnifying glass" to view selected parts of a picture in more detail
