Camera observation systems

See and know what is happening on your site

Camera systems are an integral component of any integrated security solution. Camera observation and video management systems are a valuable addition to optimize your security. In order to be able to offer the most suitable camera system for every situation, Heras works with key partners such as Bosch, Pelco and Hikvision. With these partners we are able to meet your individual security requirements.

  • Cameras and camera observation
  • Video management system


Your security needs drive the decisions needed to provide the optimal camera system. A camera system can be used for the following purposes:

  • Detect: An object or person can be detected using video content analysis.
  • Observing: you have an overview of your site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Recognition: clearly recognizing specific characteristics of a person or object. Correct color reproduction plays a major role in this.
  • Identify: helps establish the identity of visitors.


Cameras and camera observation

Detect, observe, recognize, identify

Camera observation systems do not have to be complex. With todays technologically advanced camera systems we can setup each installation to your requirements both effectively and efficiently.

Camera observation function
It is important to determine what you want to achieve with your camera observation system. What is the goal? To detect, observe, recognize or identify ?.

Cameras for use during the day and in the dark
Do you only want this during the day, or also at night? It is also important to know whether the system will be used reactively ( i.e something has happened and the alarm images are needed for review) or proactively (guard watches the images 24 hours a day).

Camera types
Your needs determine which type of camera is used. Whereas a fixed camera is focused on a specific area, a moving camera (PTZ) can be utilized to view a far larger area and be controlled via a keyboard, mouse or joystick. A panoramic camera allows you to get a complete overview at a glance in 180, 270 or even 360 degrees. For a thermal image, use a thermographic camera.

Placing, installing and adjusting cameras requires specific knowledge. Heras has this expertise in-house. For good advice and the complete installation of your camera system, you have come to the right place at Heras.

Video management system

When multiple cameras are required to secure your site

If the security of your site is protected with a large number of cameras, with many viewing/operating stations (and therefore many recordings), we recommend integrating a video management system. A video management system allows you to monitor complex areas and scenarios.

Easy to use: Video management systems must be intuitive and straightforward to operate for your security team to be able to make decisions quickly and effectively.

Reliable: a stable and reliable system is essential to ensure business continuity.

Scalable: a video management system can be expanded and adapted to the needs of the customer with extra cameras and recorders where necessary.

Resilient: whether it concerns a single cameras or multiple cameras in different locations. Your video management system needs to be stable and secure.
