Redcare Surveillance – Fast and Flexible Wireless Surveillance

At today’s BT Redcare event in London, the communications and security giant launched Redcare View. Redcare View is a flexible, one-stop, end-to-end video surveillance solution. It’s designed to support you in delivering CCTV surveillance in the most cost-effective way over one of the UK’s most trusted security networks. Redcare View puts you in control; viewing footage in real time helps you minimise both your response times and the impact of the issue.

Redcare View offers the anytime, anywhere flexibility of a wireless surveillance solution backed up by the reliability of BT’s network and infrastructure – delivering a reliable, secure (AES 256 encrypted) and resilient surveillance solution to you. Redcare View gives you: the ability to put cameras where you need them without the need for fixed connectivity; a secure and resilient network gateway to your cameras; the means to stream video over a wireless connection at an affordable cost to your control room as well as to mobile devices; and the ability to edge record high-quality images.

Redcare View stands out

  • A truly end-to-end wireless surveillance solution.
  • Live streaming across all bandwidths, with high-quality images even at ultra-low bandwidths.
  • Access to the largest wi-fi network via BT Wi-fi hotspots.
  • Edge image recording removes the need for continuous streaming.
  • Managed end-to-end service with full sight of all costs before you sign up.

Rapid, reliable coverage where you need it

The Redcare View platform gives you access to BT’s trusted wi-fi network as the default network for this service. With over 5.2 million hotspots, BT Wi-fi is the largest UK wi-fi network and it’s still growing.

If you’re not near a BT Wi-fi hotspot, Redcare View switches to 3G/4G mobile for smooth, continuous coverage. Or you have the option to extend your existing Redcare fibre network using the Redcare View solution, making the most of your existing infrastructure and giving you greater flexibility.
