4K 8-Megapixel Video Surveillance

4K provides “Quadruple” the Definition of 1080p

4K IP Camera Systems offer the highest level of detail and clarity available.

The 4K Security Cameras featured in Lorex IP Video Surveillance Systems use advanced 8-Megapixel Image Sensors and have approximately four (4) times the quantity of Pixels as a 1080p HD Security Camera.

The Larger Image Sensor in Lorex 4K Security Cameras allows the Camera to Capture More Light, which Improves Color, Contrast, and Low-Light Performance.

4K also adds an increased ability to Zoom In on distant objects without drastically reducing image quality. So, if an incident does occur, it will offer the best chance to capture useful evidence such as distinct Facial Features or License Plate Numbers.

4K IP Camera Systems are also equipped with revolutionary HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding or H.265) Video Compression. HEVC/ H.265 helps keep files sizes small without losing the 4K Video quality.

ECS Overview

Efficient Communication Solutions, Inc. (ECS) is a locally owned Avaya Business Partner that sells, installs, and services Avaya business phone systems in Washington and Oregon.

ECS has been certified by Avaya as a Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) Expert Business Partner.

In today’s business environment ECS can coordinate installations anywhere in the United States. 80% of our installations are in the greater Seattle, WA & Portland, OR metro areas, but because many of our clients have offices outside of our service area we partner with other Avaya Business Partners across the country. We only contract with certified Avaya installers and business partners that have the same standards we have in customer service and customer satisfaction.

In order to earn the status of Emerald Level Business Partner, Avaya requires a 90% “random” customer satisfaction rating and we must deal exclusively with Avaya products. Random means that Avaya contacts 100 random customers of ours each quarter and asks a series of questions pertaining to their experience with us and a MINIMUM of 90% of those customers rate us good or excellent in all categories. These are not customer we “cherry pick” and ask them to call. We register every system we sell with Avaya and THEY pick the customers to contact. Our most recent survey reflected an industry leading 94% customer satisfaction rating.

Make no mistake, we service our customers, period. We don’t leave until your system is operating at peak performance and programmed to your specific needs and requirements. We fully train all users and system administrators so you are happy with the product we sold to you and refer us to your friends and associates. 73% of our new sales in the past 5 years have been from referrals and that speaks volumes.

Establish Your Own Cabling & Infrastructure Standards

You probably have a standard phone type for everyone’s desk, a standard PC all employees, even a standard type of data equipment in your communication room. If you are preparing to start a new structured cabling project, there is a simple but very important item to check off before beginning: defining your company’s cabling standards.

There is a lot that goes into the preparation including: Selecting the right contractor and checking their references, selecting the correct cabling standard; Category 5e, Category 6, Category 6A, or fiber optics, determining how many total cables are needed in your building, suite, or at each location/outlet. What type and how many feed cables are necessary from the demarcation point of the Carrier Services company to your communication room.  The cost/budget and timing/lead-time are very important factors as well.

Here are some tips to create well thought out cabling/infrastructure standards for your company:

  1. Create a labeling scheme that makes it easy to identify a cable out on the floor.

(When ECS designs a system we usually use this sequence: Building/Floor/Com Room/Rack Location/Patch Panel/Port)

  1. Standardizing on a jack color for different types of devices can give you, your IT staff and employees a quick reference on where they can or should plug a device into the wall.  Example would be having white for voice, blue for analog devices and orange for data.  This is less important when creating a “universal” system that allows for every jack to go to the same patch panels and be used for “all of the above”.  But, if you need or want that separation, different colored jacks (and patch cables in the communications room) are a great way to achieve it.
  1. Using faceplates with more ports than necessary can save the cost of replacing that faceplate later.  If every station is a standardized at two cables, the cost of using a four-port faceplate instead of a two-port is negligible.
  1. Standardize on one brand, color and type of cable and jacks so you have an interchangeable system.  A lot of manufacturers use what is known as “keystone” jacks and faceplates.  These are mostly interchangeable, but not always.  ECS recommends using these.  Keep a record of what you have installed for future reference.

Other items you may want to consider for future proofing:

  1. add extra cables now to areas that may have growth to save expense in the future.  If you have an area in your space that you can fore see adding new employees in the future, why not put in some extra cable now, instead of paying for it later when there is furniture/people in the way and it costs more to install.  Not to mention the interruption in your business for the time it takes to install in new cables.
  1. Make sure to have an accurate floor plan or “as-built” of your space with the voice and data outlets clearly marked.  This makes finding the correct cables, jacks, & patch panel ports easy.
  1. Document adding any Moves, Adds, or Changes (MAC) you may perform after the install for an accurate record of your cabling/infrastructure.

  • Do they have Valid/Current General Liability Insurance ?
  • Can/Will they provide a “Certificate of Insurance” (COI) protecting you for their work ?
  • Are they able to obtain a Low-Voltage installation permit ?
  • Do they use employees or sub-contractors ?

Low-Voltage Cabling is a long‐term investment and regardless of the size of your company, poorly installed low-voltage cabling will over time negatively impact your use of technology. Unfortunately, the problem is often discovered months and sometimes even years after installation.

Cloud Storage for Video Surveillance

Cloud Based Storage Option for Video Surveillance

If you have used Dropbox, iCloud, Google Drive or ADrive, then you’ve used Cloud Storage.  According to Techopedia.com, Cloud Storage is used to store data on a remote server that can be accessed via the Internet.  It is located offsite and managed by the service providers.

With the advent of IP and networked cameras, businesses now have the option to store their video footage directly to the cloud.  This is important because it allows your video footage to be kept safe, and away from intruders on your premises.  Because the storage is not located on site, they cannot physically destroy it.  Also, in the event of fire or flood, the video footage will be safe.

Another advantage of storing to the cloud is the ability to view stored video footage and real-time live viewing using only a Web browser or a mobile app.  Cloud Storage is typically very inexpensive with a monthly subscription.  You enjoy low entry costs and your footages are safe.  Plus, setting up Cloud Storage with networked cameras is fast and easy.

Disadvantage:  There is a small chance a slow Internet connection may be experienced, especially when Internet is being used to review the footage. Downloading these videos is necessary to review or stream them.  Additionally, a subscription fee maybe charged for ongoing Cloud Storage.  Lastly, consider video footage and images stored on a cloud usually does not give the user complete legal or physical control.
