Video Guard is a device for connecting a company’s electronic surveillance system to SIRA’s computer network. As you may know, SIRA is a government agency responsible for all things related to security within Dubai. SIRA has made the installation of Video Guard a compulsory requirement for companies working in some specific sectors in Dubai.
WHAT DOES THE VIDEO GUARD DO?
Video Guard improves the overall quality and uptime of the customer’s surveillance system. It does this in the following three ways. Firstly, it enables SIRA to monitor the customer’s video surveillance system remotely. Thus, SIRA can watch the video footage of the customer’s site in real-time. Secondly, it helps SIRA to record a backup copy of the Customers’ surveillance video on its computer. Thus, even if a customer loses the video recording at his location, a remote copy is still available at SIRA.
Lastly, it sends out the alarm messages generated by the video recorders and the intruder alarm panels. These alarm messages not only go to SIRA but also to the customer and the security service provider. Due to this, the service provider can attend to the problems quickly and resolve them.
Video Guard sends alarm notifications for the following events:
- loss of video due to failure of one or more cameras
- failure of a hard disk in a video recorder
- failure of a video recorder
- its disconnection from the network
- intrusion detection alarms (if the customer also has an alarm system connected)
