Monitor the blind spot in your building security

  • Improve your tenant's experience - Passengers will feel safer with increased security.

  • Video verify emergency button call requests.

  • Eliminate Non-emergency 911 service fees.

  • Real-Time video for better risk management.

  • Deter equipment vandalism saves costly repairs.

  • Mitigate risk & liability from accidents or criminal behavior.



Up & in the clear:

The radio waves coming from your wireless system do not shoot like a laser beam; rather, they radiate from the antenna like a flashlight beam. Therefore, the transmitter and receiver should be up and in the clear. We recommend a minimum mounting height of 15 feet above any obstructions. 

Ground Plane:

If the radio devices are not mounted high enough above obstructions, the signal strength will be seriously reduced; therefore, your distance will be reduced. The signal will literately bounce up and away from your intended target. This is known as a negative ground plane effect. The ground plane could not only be the ground you stand on but could also be the rooftops of cars or distant buildings. If we have a choice, place the transmitter/receiver enclosures, or if external antenna, on the edge of the roof looking AWAY from the building rather than installing them in the middle of the roof.


Trees Grow!

If we install the video link in the winter, the leaves that come out in spring may eliminate your wireless link. Are you trying to transmit through trees? Then you will need to seriously consider how much range will be lost. A field test is always the best way to find out. Speak to a Video Comm Technologies Tech for a possible solution.

Unusual Traffic

Watch out for unusual traffic in your transmission path. Tractor-trailers or other large vehicles may be a factor in transmitting over a highway. Metal obstructions between the antennas cannot be ignored, including electrical transmission lines that may not be obvious in the distance.
