"In God We Trust. All Others We Monitor."


SWS Security, manufacturer and distributor, offers many products for electronic surveillance and intelligence gathering as described below. The ICOM equipment and some others are available to the general public; some are for sale only to government and law enforcement agencies, and select corporate security organizations..



The model #1020 CCD camera was designed specifically for demanding surveillance and intelligence gathering operations. The #1020 is a miniature, rugged, high resolution, very low light CCTV camera that is equally at home in a surveillance situation as it is in more conventional applications.

 Specify the #1020 for applications requiring sharp images in very low light areas. Even where plenty of light is available, the high sensitivity #1020 should be used. A high sensitivity (low light) camera will permit you to operate with a smaller F stop, providing better depth of field. This means that more of the area under observation will be in focus, especially as compared to mass produced miniature "surveillance" cameras. Hand selected low noise CCD's allow the #1020 to operate at high gain while maintaining optimum picture quality. The #1020 is made in the United States. The unit is especially suited for wireless video applications.
