3D CCTV Design Tool Improves The Quality of Your Video Surveilance

Every serious video surveillance company should have a 3D CCTV design tool to do their designs on.

This would reduce the number of dissatisfied clients who have paid for camera systems that are next to useless.

So what would be more likely to close the sale?
Obviously the 3D modelled one.

Following are two software packages that will increase your sales through better presentation.

I personally use both these products in different situations depending on the clients requirements. Each has its own advantages that are covered below.

If you are in sales and want to be sure your design will work.

The IP Video Design tool by JVSG is the best software package for you to improve the visual presentation of your quote without needing to spend too much time in the software. The 3D design interface is easy to learn and give professional results that show your client you have actually designed their CCTV system.

The key benefit is its ease of use for a novice.

  • You can quickly design a layout and get an accurate indication of the camera and lens combinations you require.
  • Model different camera resolutions on the same scene
  • Change the camera installation height
  • Draw simple shapes, walls, doors and windows
  • Place pre-defined 3D objects to show the client what to expect.
    EG Various people, vehicles  and other objects
  • Import any objects you or others have created in Scketchup
  • Creates a legend of cameras & lenses for each design

This is a powerful tool that any salesman could use.

    That is a really good design tool. With 3d, I guess you’ll be able to convince just about anybody that your system is the best and would close the sale. I really hope it’s not as complicated as it look and is really user-friendly and novice-friendly.

      Hi James,

      I use it most days for my own designs. The JVSG CCTV design tool is really easy use. It will take you about 30 minutes to start to use it effectively.
      The CCTV CAD design tool is a far more powerful package so does take time to learn the more advanced features like lighting.

      One of the great things with both CCTV design tools is they stand by t products with a 30 day money back guarantee so if you do buy one, it is easy to get a refund should it not be what you had hoped.

      I would love to have some of the other users of the software drop a comment with their experience of either JVSG or CCTV CAD.

    Very nice tools. I think these can add more value to engineering designs if used along with autocad…

      Thanks for sharing.
      Could you give more details why you recommend autoCad?

    This is a great CAD tool. The software uses the basics of CAD embedded in for example, AutoCAD, SolidWorks. However, they created it specifically for CCTV design. Nice!
