Convergint Total Recall CrimeEye Product Profile

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Jul 11, 2017

Deploying video surveillance in metropolitan areas often brings challenges, including lack of infrastructure or excessive costs to extend facilities. For the past decade, Total Recall has been promoting their camera system designed to address these challenges, which they claim offers a "best-value solution".

In this report we examine Total Recall's previous "CrimeEye" and new CrimeEye-RD-2 rapid deployment video surveillance units, including how they compare to alternative products and approaches to the problem of deploying video surveillance in these environments.
