We install a cost-effective computer-based system, ensuring maximum surveillance capabilities with a wide choice of cameras, both visible and covert. All of our cameras are able to pan, tilt and zoom on live views and recorded video clips. They also will record synchronized audio with no limit to the number of cameras on the system.

    After speaking with two other companies, we hired Silent Watchdog Video Surveillance because Tom Camp was so knowledgeable, attentive and just down right passionate about his work and the quality of his camera! The best part though was working with him during the installation. We have a very old house and Tom was very quick to creatively problem solve during the installation process. After everything was in place he demonstrated the software on our computers, helped us set up and answered our questions. A few days later he followed up by calling to see how everything was going. About a month later, I called him and he promptly called me back to answer my question. I enthusiastically recommend Tom Camp because from start to finish he was terrific!


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
There are many options available for video surveillance. The standard analog camera and DVR system will work for many applications, but does not provide the highest resolution video images necessary for facial recognition or detail such as licence plate recognition. This is a lower cost solution, but may not provide the coverage you need. The Mobotix Megapixel IP cameras will provide a much clearer, high definition image while also giving you a lot more flexibility in viewing and event notification. Described as a "decentralized" system, the cameras are able to record to a micro SD card installed within the camera itself. There is no need for a Digital Video Recording Device (DVR). With an IP system you have the option to use an unlimited number of cameras to record massive amounts of video to Network Attached Storage devices located on your local network. As a full service installer, we try to provide the most cost effective solution that will meet your surveillance needs.
