QUESTION: Dear John

Thanks.

The CCTV cameras will record the exam proceedings in the exam hall where the students are giving exams.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

Answer
Also important, all students must be aware of the fact that they will be video taped.  
It keeps honest people honest.

I actually believe that there should be a documentation of the exam by video, you can also match the face of the individual with the exam they are taking.  I am also aware that many times in the past, other people will sit in on an exam for another student and take the test because the other student is incapable of doing it.  You would be surprised what people will do for money.

So if you are going to do this, you might also consider facial recognition software as well.

Power Quality and Lightning protection for Burgs, Fire, CCTV, and Gate access systems. I also want to hear about Back up Generator issues effecting your electronic equipment. I know all 24 manufactures of fire alarm panels. If you ask me I will tell you who I think is the best, and who is the worst. A lot has changed in 30 years, and many consumers have no idea what they are buying, and what they should expect for reliability for their systems. The question is, why are you paying for so many repairs? In the South, re-occurring revenue is extremely important. Do you fall in that category?
