As a major deterrent for potential intruders, the CCTV system has really caused the Security industry to evolve. With wireless CCTV cameras offering security that is easy to install and providing high levels of performance, a CCTV camera is now thought of as a requirement for any security system.
CCTV cameras are now providing high quality pictures at cost effective prices, making it simple to obtain high levels of security at your home or business. From small domestic systems that you can view on your television to extensive industrial CCTV systems that can cover a vast variety of applications, a CCTV system no longer requires the traditional cameras but can incorporate discretely located unobtrusive cameras that offer high security whilst becoming in keeping with the appearance of the building.
CCTV can catch a situation before it takes place. If someone is loitering around outside, a CCTV camera can record them before they try to break in or steal something. This point is a great deterrent as when someone commits a crime the most important thing for them is to not get caught.
With the introduction of digital technology, the CCTV system has only advanced more dramatically, now offering an affordable option for home and business owners alike.
Most digital CCTV security systems can either record 24-7 or can record at certain times or intervals. This is controlled at a central management hub, connected to the full surveillance system of cameras.
Alternatively, each CCTV camera can be used in conjunction with a motion detector so that a specified camera will trigger and begin recording as soon as the detection has occurred. This is can be used effectively to reduce costs and highlight key security areas like entrances and exits.
