Scan through days, weeks or even months of video in a matter of seconds so that you can actually use your security cameras.

We take each and every client's situation into consideration when we come out on-site for a Free System Consultation, to ensure that we are not just installing a security camera system, but providing an actual solution that takes your concerns into consideration to try to solve the issues that you have at your property. We don't believe in one-size-fits all approach to security, as we understand that each and every situation and property is different.

Through thorough testing, we ensure that we know the limitations of each camera and system. From text message alerts to fast video playback and real-time remote access, we ensure that your security camera system will serve the needs of our neighbors and friends in Chicago.

#1 Our Technology is the best!

Every security camera system on the market makes promises on what their system will do. Unfortunately most fall well short of their claims. Platinum CCTV is different. We do not settle for the bare-minimum when it comes to your security. This is the reason that we designed our AVM system with our customers' needs in mind. Our AVM Software disrupts the security camera industry by looking at video in a far different way. It starts with our hardware. We use only the latest model Intel Processors, delivering 10s of thousands of times more processing power than other vendor embedded NVRs. Then we install our proprietary AVM (Advanced Video Management) software, which completely improves upon every aspect of the security system.

Finding your video fast makes all the difference when it comes to security camera systems. This was the first change that we made compared to other DVRs and NVRs. With our innovative CMS4 sofwtare, you can scan through days, weeks or even months of video in a matter of seconds visually to find the video you need. This allows our clients to use their video much more than they did with other systems. Most systems take hours to playback and fast forward video to try to find the video you need. This is why clients of other systems rarely ever use their video. Our clients use their video constantly because the AVM software makes it a easy to use.

Remote access has always been on the mind of our programmers. Even back in the days of dial-up internet and flip phones, we were already viewing our cameras. As each new cell phone platform came out, we have been one of the first to support it. From Windows Mobile through Android and iOS and beyond, we have always stayed ahead of mobile phones to ensure that our clients can access their video from anywhere. Our remote access is designed to make the best use of your internet connection for each connection, a luxury provided by the enhanced processing capabilities of our NVRs. Watch your security cameras in REAL-TIME from anywhere in the world like our customers have been for over 19 years. When your security matters, Trust Platinum CCTV

Find your video fast

You are likely considering installing security cameras, because you know at some point in time you will need the video. Most camera systems on the market are very difficult to play back from, making the systems unlikely to be used unless a major theft or vandalism occurs. Platinum CCTV was founded on the belief that fast access to scan through video is the most important part of a security camera system. This is why we build our NVRs with better hardware and program them with better software, to ensure our clients will use their video. We make playback of video so easy, that many of our clients use their video daily to visually scan through days, weeks or months of video in a matter of seconds.

This level of access to your camera footage is critical in making your security camera system useful and a valuable asset to you and your property. Our competition can't offer this same playback, which is why often clients with other systems won't use their video, making it less valuable. In many cases, the video is so difficult to playback from, that system owners won't use their video for months or years at a time, and end up finding out too late that they did not capture video they needed, because the system had not been working in months or years.

The key to ensuring that your cameras are providing the video they need, is making the video easy to access, reliable and easy to playback. This is where our AVM system excels at every level. Once your video is easy to review, you can make use of video in ways you never imagined before, scan through days of video to find when someone dumped garbage, whether your grill fell over due to wind or tampering, track pallets through a warehouse over the course of days or months, monitor employee time cards, check to make sure the billing from a snow plow company was correct by scanning through a month of video, and many, many more ways. Your security cameras have the potential to become a great asset to your and your company, but only when the NVR recorder allows fast access to playback video like our AVM NVRs. Not all NVRs are created equal, and playback is a big differentiator.

The Best Quality Video

Even existing IP cameras can look far better when connected to our AVM NVR systems. This is because most systems do not have adequate processing power to allow recording of the full bitrate of the cameras. This means that many systems will look great if nothing moves, but when there is motion on the screen, they look blocky or pixelated.

Platinum CCTV AVM NVRs provide the full quality available from your HD IP cameras, through better hardware and better software than other NVRs. We start with late-model Intel CPUs, which have 10s of thousands of times more processing power than traditional embedded NVRs. Next, we build on that processing power with software designed to process your video smoothly, provide better motion detection, and utilize the full quality, resolution frame rate and bitrate of video that is offered by your cameras.

Without the strong processing power and software that is included in each of our AVM NVR systems, NVRs are not able to keep up, so they have to reduce frame rate (making video choppy), bitrate (making vide blocky or pixelated), or resolution (dropping overall number of pixels) in order to keep up with the video of even 1, let alone multiple HD IP Cameras. Since many of these security camera system manufacturers use resolution of the cameras to sell their system, the cut-backs usually come from the bitrate, framerate or both. This way, the video can still be called 1080P, 2K or 4K since the resolution has not been altered, but the video might still look like an old analog camera due to the reductions in quality necessary to allow the system to record. If you have ever seend video from a cut-rate or cloud-based camera system, then you have likely seen video that was 'choppy,' 'blocky,' or 'pixelated.' Our AVM System can record at the full bitrate, framerate, color depth and resolution provided by the cameras, giving you better quality without even upgrading your physical cameras.

Find Vehicles and People Quickly

If you pair our AVM NVR system with any of our A.I. series 8th generation HD IP cameras in your Chicago building, you can unlock the true potential of today's business security camera systems. Our CMS4 software allows you to search through days, weeks or months of video to get a list of people who entered into a certain area of the camera, or vehicles that passed your business. This is fueled by the deep-learning AI in these cameras and fully supported in our NVRs to make your cameras work even harder for you. This is just another way that our AVM software with CMS4 client allows you to find your video quickly so that you will use your video more, without wasting time.

Use this innovative VCA (Video Content Analysis) feature of our AVM software to find a specific person that entered your business, by allowing you to click through a list of just events that were triggered by a human. This is useful for checking time cards of employees, locating a specific customer, counting the number of customers entering, identify or even alert when people are entering certain zones and more. Vehicle detection filter allows you to run searches to find each vehicle into your driveway or parking lot, forklifts entering certain rows and more. This AI eliminates the false-alerts associated with competitors' systems, ensuring that you get to see just the video that you need.

The AI VCA features and our AVM System ensure that you can make the most out of the video for your security camera system in Chicago and better manage you property, business or home. This is another reason that we carefully custom-design each Chicago security camera system, providing you with the features and functionality that you need for your budget. Every Chicago building is different, which is why we approach them with experience, intuition and a lot of questions. This way we can make sure that we are providing you with custom-solutions and options to suit your needs.

Our NVRs deliver, where others give only empty promises

Find Vehicles Instantly based on License plate

Find vehicles from their license plates. This is not just a feature of our high-end police camera systems, but is actually available to all of our home and business security camera system owners. Our AVM (Advanced Video Management) NVR software combines with our 8th Generation LPR ANPR cameras to provide you with that ability. Each vehicle's license plate is read by your ANPR cameras, then entered with a snapshot in the database of our AVM NVRs.

These HD-LPR-ANPR license plate capture cameras can read plates from vehicles, even in complete darkness up to 75 miles per hour. This ensures great capture of plates during the daytime and at night, with onboard OCR technology to provide not only crisp images but also to read the plates into actual searchable characters.

Once the License plate text is stored in the database of our AVM NVR, you can search for instances of these plates using a fuzzy match, to ensure you can see each time a specific plate entered or left your parking lot or driveway. Save these searches for fast repeated searching (like when employees arrived or left, or when a specific customer has visited your facility).

Our AVM NVRs will also allow you to send text or email alerts based on actions triggered by a specific license plate as well. Want to receive an alert when an employee or ex-employee arrives at your facility? Programming alerts based on a license plate can allow you an even greater level of pro-active security for your facility. This is why we have been installing many of these HD-LPR-ANPR cameras in facilities throughout Chicagoland. Even if you do not need this technology right away, selecting an NVR system that will allow you to add our HD-LPR-ANPR License Plate Capture Cameras to your security camera system in the future will make those features possible in the future without replacing your entire system. Our AVM NVRs grow with you and your business, 'future-proofing' your security. Our AVM system keeps growing with your needs. You never need to throw out your recorder and start over.

Smart Camera Alerts

Almost every camera system over the past 2 decades has told clients "We can send you text alerts" when your cameras detect motion. This has been a somewhat true statement, they CAN send those alerts, but most clients will never use them. This is due to the fact that all of these systems are prone to horrible false-alerts.

False alerts are the enemy of security in several ways. First, if you receive a good number of false alerts, your brain naturally starts to filter out the notification sound, because you have trained your brain that the alert means nothing, because it has meant nothing for the past 100 times. This means you might not even hear the alert anymore as your ears become brain-deaf to that sound. Next, if you cannot or do not become brain-deaf to the notifications, then you will likely shut off the alerts...in which case it doesnt matter if your system has the capability or not.our NVR systems having more processing power, better AI cameras and better software to eliminate these false-alerts.

Most of these systems employ pixel change or video motion to send alerts. This is why they are extremely prone to false notifications and alerts. There are always pixels changing on the screen. With these systems, you find yourself setting motion recording sensitivity lower and lower to try to combat false alerts, until your system is barely ever recording. The truth of the matter is that Chicago property owners want their systems to record far more often than they want alerting. This is the reason our AVM NVR recorders use the pixel motion for recording, so that you get all of the recording you need and more, instead our systems use VCA events and AI for sending notifications or alerts with our SMART Cameras.We give you all the recording you need without false alerts. This is why, at Platinum CCTV we have always treated notifications differently to help reduce or eliminate false-alerts completely. We have had customers receiving notifications via text or email for nearly 20 years, by engineering technology that will actually work. Early days, we needed to use PIR sensors in addition to the cameras to identify only warm bodies that moved into an area. Now, our 8th Generation AI smart cameras deliver deep-learning technology to determine the difference between a human, vehicle and other motion on the screen, ensuring that you will get recording when you need it, but also receive alerts only when you want them. Our systems have so low false-alerts that many of our clients set their system as an emergency bypass, so they will receive alerts even when their phone is silenced.

At Platinum CCTV, we are experts in Smart Camera Alerting, we've been doing it for 20 years
