Burglary and Vandalism are the number one reason most people install video cameras. Video cameras and CCTV often deter criminals from attempting robberies. If there is an incident, such as car keying or graffiti, a well-placed video camera can provide the necessary evidence for Police to arrest and charge the perpetrators. Neighbour and Neighbourhood disputes are another popular reason for Security Surveillance Cameras. Whether or not a recent incident has spurred your desire to keep an eye out for anything out of the ordinary, security cameras can help alleviate any concerns and show you what is taking place in front and behind your home. A properly installed outdoor video surveillance CCTV camera can record all activity and give insight into what is going on when you’re not looking.
Outdoor security risks. Whether you have a swimming pool in the back yard or expensive patio furniture and equipment at risk, a camera system can secure the products and provide you with alerts and peace of mind. Has the delivery service left the package at the door? Family and Children monitoring. Many parents install video surveillance to ensure the safety of their family members. There are a variety of practical applications, including real-time video look-in to check on the Nanny, or the teenagers left home alone for the weekend. The ability to have alerts and video clips sent when events occur also provides peace of mind.
(closed-circuit television) is a TV system in which signals are not publicly distributed but are monitored, primarily for surveillance and security purposes.
CCTV relies on strategic placement of cameras, and observation of the camera's input on monitors somewhere. Because the cameras communicate with monitors and/or video recorders across private coaxial cable runs or wireless communication links, they gain the designation "closed-circuit" to indicate that access to their content is limited by design only to those able to see it.
Older CCTV systems used small, low-resolution black and white monitors with no interactive capabilities. Modern CCTV displays can be color, high-resolution displays and can include the ability to zoom in on an image or track something (or someone) among their features. Talk CCTV allows an overseer to speak to people within range of the camera's associated speakers.
CCTV is commonly used for a variety of purposes, including:
Maintaining perimeter security in medium- to high-secure areas and installations. Observing behavior of incarcerated inmates and potentially dangerous patients in medical facilities. Traffic monitoring. Overseeing locations that would be hazardous to a human, for example, highly radioactive or toxic industrial environments. Building and grounds security. Obtaining a visual record of activities in situations where it is necessary to maintain proper security or access controls (for example, in a diamond cutting or sorting operation; in banks, casinos, or airports).
CCTV is finding increasing use in law-enforcement, for everything from traffic observation (and automated ticketing) to observation of high-crime areas or neighborhoods
