Atlanta, Ga (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

The 22 mile American Tobacco Trail in Durham, North Carolina is a popular place where thousands gather to run, walk, cycle, and roller blade their way across a scenic landscape. After three separate robberies and assaults, patrols increased and visitors were warned to call 911 to report suspicious activity, be aware of your surroundings, walk in well-lit populated areas and if you are being followed to quickly change directions and head to a safe location.

Previously, a pilot security camera was installed after assaults in 2012. The recent incidents prompted officials to move forward by placing additional cameras along the trail. Durham Transportation Director Mark Ahrendsen commented on the Pilot camera saying, It was kind of a demonstration. Will it work? Will it transmit images that are readable and helpful? And the outcome is that it was which is why we are moving forward with the additional cameras, reported Time Warner Cable News.

Security cameras are useful tools in identifying potential hazards and suspicious activity. Most importantly, they can record a crime being committed in real-time. Security Product Depot announces the latest in technology that is ideal for outdoor use and clear resolution during both day and nighttime hours. The Eclipse Long Range IR Bullet Camera a offers a 700 TV Line resolution and a high performing color 1/3 Sony CCD video sensor. The security camera is ideal for night time use due to its ability provide adaptive tone reproduction, which protects color reproduction on objects that appear between very bright and very dark sections of the screen. In cameras without W-Dynamic, an object would appear washed out, or invisible, lost within a fog or haze extending from the area of high luminance.

The bullet camera is programmed for optimum performance and is ready to go right out of the box, making it an ideal solution for surveying large scale heavy populated areas.
