Motion Media Technology's Video Surveillance Device Chosen by Security &
Surveillance Systems for Retail Security Apps
Remote video security and surveillance device transmits real-time, color video
and audio over standard phone lines
Wilmington, NC (December 10, 2001) - Motion Media Technology, a world
leader in video telephony products for the business and mass markets, today
announced that Security & Surveillance Systems (www.securitysurveillance.com),
a security services firm that specializes in CCTV remote surveillance systems,
has chosen the SS-100, a version of Motion Media's eyesite 110, as a core
element of the company's remote surveillance systems.
A robust video transmission device that provides two-way visual and audio communications,
the SS-100 allows Security & Surveillance (S&S) to deliver its retail
business customers with a quick, cost-effective means to improve productivity,
service, and security. Retail establishments can use the SS-100 to monitor remote
locations from anywhere in the world using standard phone lines. S&S has
purchased 500 units of the SS-100 and will use them in a variety of small businesses,
from restaurants to bookstores to entertainment complexes.
"Most owners and managers want to know more about how well their employees
are running the stores," said Ron Phillips, General Manager of Security
& Surveillance. "Owners learn that with the SS-100 video surveillance
system, they can not only see, but also hear, what is going on in several stores
from a single, remote location. In addition, they can communicate directly with
people in the store, almost as if they were there. There's nothing like instant
feedback to motivate a worker."
S&S is using the SS-100, a compact, portable unit that can easily be carried
between home and office, or even used in a hotel room. The video surveillance
system connects between any standard telephone jack and television, and supports
up to six standard closed circuit TV (CCTV) cameras. Business owners or managers
simply dial the phone number of the remote facility they wish to view using
a standard telephone line. The images from the on-site cameras appear on the
screen. On-site monitoring is supported by connecting the local unit to a TV
in the manager's office. The system can store up to 50 locations (phone numbers)
on speed dial.
The SS-100 can also be connected to the auxiliary output of an alarm system
to automatically "phone home" if the alarm goes off. The alarm can
be sent out to the police or alarm agency in the normal manner, but can also
trigger the local SS-100 to dial anywhere specified - home, security guard,
or office. Managers equipped with a remote unit will be able to see what's happening
even before help arrives.
