Camera-Com 2 is an add-on audio intercom and signaling system used to enhance the security of any CCTV video installation. The Camera-Com 2 can be attached to any CCTV camera. The addition of two-way audio communication dramatically improves the response time of security personnel. The ability to communicate with someone in the surveillance zone more than doubles the security of that area and allows security personnel to handle many situations in the security zone without having to leave the monitor station. This reduces the number of security personnel required to handle the system and enhances the security.
The fixed operating expense of the security system is reduced and the long term cost savings is easy to sell to your customer. Audio will alert security personnel to danger in the observed area, even if the danger is out of sight of the CCTV camera. Personnel will be alerted to security problems without having to observe them visually. Security personnel can verbally direct the actions of others in the security zone.
The two-way signaling allows a person at the camera to push a button and ring the monitor station. People in the security zone can alert the monitor station when a problem occurs speeding the reaction time of security personnel. A Call Light on the Base Station console tells the monitor personnel which zone is calling. A push button on the Base Station activates a relay closure at the camera that can be used to open a door or operate other equipment.
The built-in two-way Automatic Volume Control maintains the listening volume regardless of the sound level in the observed area. You will hear foot steps and shouts equally well. A video camera only looks in one direction at a time, the Camera-Com 2 monitors in all directions all the time. Since the Camera-Com 2 uses the same coax as the video picture, sound can be added without additional cables.
The Camera-Com can be used with switchers and remote control equipment. It can be powered by the same 24VAC transformer as the video camera. Simply connect the Remote Station and a speaker to the camera in the area to be monitored, then connect the Base Station with an amplified speaker to the video cable in the control room, that's it. The system uses Subcarrier Above Video technology to communicate two-way voice and control contact closures without interfering with the video picture.
The unit comes with a mounting flange for easy installation. Simply mount the Remote Station in the area to be monitored then connect the camera's power and video cables to the unit. For covert installations an optional External Microphone is available. Then install the Console Face Plate and Base Station near the monitor and connect the power cube and video cables
