A high rise building is a sitting duck for the terrorists. In the aftermath of September 11, 2001 in New York and November 26, 2008 in Mumbai authorities in high-rise buildings are beefing up their surveillance systems to prevent any untoward incident in their premises. The installation of surveillance cameras acts as an effective safeguard and deterrent to protect people and property inside and around a high rise building. Surveillance is not only about cameras but also devices that monitor the entry and exit of individuals, detect an unexpected presence using motion detectors, and identify the potential threat from fire and smoke. They all complement an effective surveillance system. The surveillance solutions must be simple in operations, non-intrusive and highy integrated.
Video surveillance is essential to protect occupant safety from virtually any threat. Designers of high rise buildings, rely on an expert security surveillance company to develop systems that monitor unauthorized intrusions or provide early warning in case of fire, smoke or gas leak outbreak. During incidents that require occupant evacuation, an effective surveillance system can facilitate orderly evacuation and ensure all occupants have safely exited.
A design that strategically places the right surveillance equipment or device throughout the building will provide a complete system to detect all threats inside and outside the building.
The key objectives of installing Hikvision’s surveillance cameras in a high rise building are:
- To provide safety and security to the people
- To prevent crime
- To reduce the fear of crime
- To improve property security
- To safeguard women, children & senior citizens

Video Surveillance Technologies
Hikvision’s Video surveillance in high rise buildings has evolved significantly over the years. Its Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) made significant advances in features and functions. Hikvision’s cameras today have embedded processors that enable video to be compressed within the device and transmitted real-time over IP networks to Network Video Recorders (NVRs) that centrally manage video feeds from many IP cameras. DVRs and NVRs have many advantages over older analog recording technology. Streaming video can be continuously recorded and discarded in cycles of days, weeks, or months. If an incident does occur, disk indexing and time-stamping make it simple to find video from a given date and time.
In short, constant surveillance is the only way to ward off threats within and around a high rise building and keep it safe and secure. Go for Hikvision’s time tested and proven security solutions to protect the high rise buildings.
