CCTV Security Surveillance Systems
CCTV is an incredibly useful tool for employers for a large variety of reasons. Some of these are fairly obvious – such as preventing thefts and other crimes, aiding the police and watching employees. However, there are many aspects and elements that you may not have considered that make CCTV not just useful, but invaluable, and make it a system that every manager should employ.
Below are just some of the extra hidden benefits of owning CCTV.
Protecting Employees – In many jobs your employees are vulnerable to physical or verbal attacks from the general public. In high pressure or stressful situations, it’s not unusual that customers will lash out at a company representative. Knowing that they are being watched by CCTV however, can minimise these cases and empower them to calmly deal with them
Preventing Crime – Of course, CCTV can help you identify how a crime happened and to spot it in action, but it can also prevent it from occurring in the first place simply by them knowing they’re being watched.
Preventing Employee Theft – Theft and crime doesn’t just occur when customers or members of public pocket goods; a lot of the time it is employees themselves who are stealing from the business. Statistics and focus groups suggest that the reason for this isn’t often needed but rather an opportunity. If your staff know that they’re being watched it will make this far less likely.
Keeping Records – CCTV also acts as an automated system for keeping records and can allow you to prove to clients and check yourself that their shipments were indeed deployed etc.
Inspiring Confidence – CCTV can also be useful for the customers themselves by creating a safe feeling environment. It can allow you to spot crimes against customers (particularly in bars etc) and even accidents on the work premises.
Queue Management System
A queue management system is used to control queues. Queue Management Systems manages your queues and enhance customer satisfaction. Queuing is one of the biggest dissatisfiers in a major organisation like banks, telecoms customer service unit, hospitals, government institutions etc while a structured approach to queuing is being expected by a large number of customers and citizens.
Fingerprint Biometric Time Attendance Systems and Biometrics Access Door Lock
Biometric solutions use a person’s unique characteristics such as a fingerprint, to determine access, providing a high level of security as the access credentials are difficult to replicate.
Time and attendance software provides the ability to record employee on and off-site times. Integrated with the access control system, the time and attendance software process the employee transactions and provides data for payroll processing.
Advantages of Fingerprint Time Attendance System over Pen & Paper System
Yes! Now there is no need to use the old pen and paper method for the storage of individual’s attendance in the daily basis. As, fingerprint time attendance system is now got its existence to support the same. This electronic device is now replacing the old and primitive pen and paper method. Fingerprint time attendance system can be implemented in external as well as in internal premises.
Since, this dual suitability feature, the time attendance system has got wide acceptance throughout the world. Of course, it has to be better in order to replace the earlier process. Isn’t it! In reality, the fingerprint time attendance system actually has got a number of benefits that can surely replace the pen and paper system. The number of advantages that the fingerprint time attendance system has over the pen and paper system can be listed as follows:
Time-Saving: With the previous pen and paper method, organizations used to suffer from the wastage of time. People used to take more time to fill the page of the paper to mark the attendance and thereby queue used to form for just marking the presence. Introduction of fingerprint time attendance system has eliminated these problems. You just need to press the finger on the sensor of the device and everything sorted.
Increase Productivity: Earlier people used to waste precious working time only to fill the handbook but now they do not need to stand in the long queue for marking the attendance due to the introduction of fingerprint time attendance system. The time they used to spend waiting in the queue is the time of their productive hours which they can now very well utilize for their work as everything is now got automated with the fingerprint time attendance system.
Greater Storage Facility: With the fingerprint time attendance system, data are saved electronically inside the database of the computer. This helps the device to store a large number of data irrespective of its length. It was not possible with the pen and paper method. Earlier pen and paper system used to tie up a huge bundle of papers for managing the data, which used to become very difficult to keep a track of the data. So now you got the solution!
Access Control & Turnstiles
Access Control is one of the most popular RFID application. Maret provides an easy-to-use system that covers from the simplest to large scale application. Our access control software integrates advanced technology with networking capability and supports full-featured security control.
Input the card holders’ information and security rights into the database through the software. Upload the data to the master controller. Once the data is downloaded to the controller, it can work offline. When a card is read by a reader, its ID is sent to the master controller. The controller will decide whether the card has the access right. If so, the controller will send command to the door control unit to turn on the electric door lock. Records are stored in the controller’s memory and can be downloaded later by the software.
A turnstile is a form of gate which allows one person to pass at a time. It can also be made so as to enforce one-way traffic of people, and in addition, it can restrict passage to people who swipe a card, fob or pass. Maret offers a wide range of turnstiles for your business needs, from full to half-height turnstiles, with a variety of finishes to suit all locations. A wide range of access control system options are also available such as card, push button intercom or keypad, providing secure entry and exit for restricted areas.
How can a turnstile benefit your company?

Automatic Vehicle Barrier & Parking Lot Management System
As one part of parking management system, barrier gate stops unauthorized parkers entering the premises, or giving access to authorized parkers. It has an option to dispense ticket to hourly parkers. While registered parkers get access by self-service swiping their proximity cards close to the reader built-in Entry Station, or enter w/o stop if tag on window shield is read by external long range RFID reader.
Wireless Field Service
RF Drive Testing
Drive Test Data (CINR)
The Drive Test is used for checking coverage criteria of a cell site with RF drive test tool. This is where an actual test is done in a vehicle while on a call in order to test the network. The data collected by the drive test tool is analyzed to evaluate various RF parameters of the network. The wireless cell site may include any wireless standards such as GSM, WCDMA, HSPA, UMTS, LTE, WIMAX, WLAN etc. It helps perform various measurements as listed below.
RF Drive test measurements may include but not limited to following.
- Dropped call
- handover with same Radio Access Technology (RAT) for example GSM
- Handover between two RATs, for example between GSM and WCDMA.
- Varification of different call quality levels by changing different parameters.
- RF Signal strength measurement.
- sector swapping either full Swap or partial Swap
- Edge and GPRS testing with short and long PS call.
- Short and long duration CS call.
- Idle and connected mode tests.
- Checking RLC throughput as per system requirement/limit
The Drive Route and Site Data for the sites to be driven to is taken from the customer.
Drive Test LOG File of the specified Drive Route/Site. It is then saved and the same will be handed over to customer at the end of the day. DT (drive test) Resources identify routine field optimization issues like cable swapping, missing neighbors etc., and rectify the same with the help of the customer.
Our company provides network optimization by meeting existing telecom quality of service requirements at a lower cost by providing incremental telecom network functionality and/or quality of service at an equal or lower cost. We upload all collected and analyzed data to a dedicated FTP server within 24 hours. Customers will be able to access all of the information directly from the server.
