CCTV Systems

A basic CCTV system comprises of a CCTV camera, a video transmission system which sends video signals from the camera to a recording system such as a digital video recorder (DVR) which in turns sends the image to a monitor for display, viewing of playback purposes

Guard Monitoring Systems

Two systems are available:

Passive System
The standard system consists of a Mag-Touch Patrol Baton, 10 ID clocking points on site, download station and software.

The guard will patrol during the night and you then download the unit via a pc. This historic data will be compiled in a report with logical names for the clock points at each location and automatically saved in directory for printing.

Active System - Mag-Cell Monitoring
The Mag-Cell is a self contained black box, installed in the guard house on-site. Equipped with a GPRS modem, it communicates directly to our web-based internet software.

One needs the passive system in order to upgrade to the Mag-Cell, and to make the site live! A guard will still walk the site on patrols, but now, he has to report to the guard house in the given round time. The information gets downloaded directly to the server and stored in database.

The power of the internet will allow you to view your sites activity from anywhere in the world. Mag-Cell is also a complete control room software. Giving messages to the controller like:
arrowsmallerFailed Patrol
arrowsmallerMissing Point
arrowsmallerPatrol OK


The web-based server can also be set-up by Timeline to:  

arrowsmallerSMS unlimited messages, as above, to any amount of cellphones
arrowsmallerAutomated reports to Email reports daily/weekly or monthly. Thus no driving to sites or collecting batons to download on PC.
arrowsmallerPanic button signal on-site, built in the Mag-Cell Unit.
arrowsmallerSecure login with Username and Password on internet.
arrowsmallerHave unlimited user accounts assigned to sites and reports.
arrowsmallerNo software installed on PC, only internet connection needed. Fully web based software!


CCTV Remote Monitoring

We recognized the need to establish an off-site monitoring facility, a fundamental element of security monitoring whether it is physical or information security. We provide a trusted and reliable solution for Networked Video Recording verification and interactive Monitoring.


The system we utilize to monitor our clients site, is a highly scale able application. Allowing for local and remote control CCTV system, from an entry level system with a small amount of cameras to a large installation with multiple cameras. We are able to convert existing analogue based CCTV systems to digital remote monitoring systems without current equipment obsl . All these at a cost effective rate. The cameras, alarm sensors and detectors are located at the client’s site, connected to CCTV transmission equipment. Our Command Centre provides audible and visual notification of alarms.


When an alarm is set-off, the digital images of what generated the alarm are transmitted to our Command Centre. The operators then respond to the alarm as per the agreed alarm procedures, i.e. audio challenge to warn off intruders through bi-directional audio link, contacts the relevant emergency service, patrol the site and more. If and emergency service was contacted, the operators remain in contact with the emergency service to describe the situation in real time.


Interactive monitoring takes the role of Video Verification a step further. It provided an interface platform between the client, its employees and our Command Centre operators. At just a “press” of an button, the client and its employees are instantly connected through an audio link, to our Command Centre.
