Our client already had an alarm system but wanted to supplement with a CCTV system. We then proceeded by adding in an 8 camera CCTV system complete with recorder.
The system was set up so that the recorder recorded on motion detection but also we allowed the Fibaro controller to see the images. This meant that if an alarm is ever triggered an image from each camera can be sent to your email as backup.
This way one image from each camera is sent to your email every 10 seconds for 2 mins. This ensured that we had both footage and stills for any potential investigation.
