Choosing to use a surveillance camera (CCTV) as a part of your security system is a very good decision. There are many different types of CCTV cameras available. There are many benefits that are associated with using CCTV cameras around your home or business. They are affordable and effective security measures.
It is important to note though, that the surveillance or CCTV cameras should be a part of a bigger and more comprehensive security system. It should not be relied on as the sole security measure in place.
The Benefits Of Using CCTV Cameras
One important thing that all business and home owners should understand is that criminals will always target easy targets. By mounting visible CCTV cameras around your home and having other obvious security measures in place will make any criminal think twice before they attempt to break into your home or business. There are also fake CCTV cameras available. These look exactly like the real CCTV surveillance cameras but they do not actually work or record anything. They also serve as a major deterrent when it comes to crime.
There are also wireless CCTV cameras that can be cleverly concealed within the home. These are perfect if you wish to monitor people or staff without their knowledge. For example, you can conceal a wireless IP CCTV camera in your baby’s room so that you can monitor the babysitter at anytime of the day. IP CCTV cameras transmit their feed via the internet and this means that you can access it from just about any internet access point such as your IP video cell phone.
There are also night vision CCTV cameras, megapixel CCTV cameras and analogue CCTV cameras. You should do as much research as possible before you decide which CCTV camera is best suited to your needs. You can consult with security companies for additional input if you are still unclear. Wireless cameras are particularly popular because they are so easy to install and they can easily be moved. Wired CCTV cameras are placed in a fixed position and it is quite tricky and can be quite expensive to have them moved.
