How a CCTV System Can Protect You
When it comes to keeping your family or business safe you can never be too secure. Many people make sure to install quality locks and alarms in order to keep unwanted people out of their properties and these are both good precautions to take. However, the best way to ensure the highest level of security for your home or business is to install a CCTV (closed circuit television) system. CCTV systems are becoming more and more popular amongst home and business owners as they offer protections and security advantages that alarms and locks simply cannot provide.
What is a CCTV System?
CCTV systems are made up of a few basic components that work together to form a blanket of security that can cover just one room or your entire property. The basic components of a CCTV system are:
- Digital cameras
- DVR (Digital Video Recorder)
- Wireless receiver
- Wireless transmitters
When setting up a CCTV system cameras are placed in the areas you would like to watch over throughout your home or business. These cameras send live video to the monitor via the wireless transmitters and the video on the monitor is recorded by the DVR.
What Does a CCTV System Provide?
CCTV systems offer a number of benefits when it comes to the security of your home or business. CCTV systems allow you to monitor and record what is going on in and around your home or business. Sometimes called the eyes in the sky these cameras are always watching and recording what is happening to provide you with the comfort of knowing that something is constantly watching over your valuables. CCTV systems are a great source of security because they discourage home and office break-ins and vandalism. When everything is being recorded on a CCTV burglars no longer have the advantage of working stealthily as now their every move is being recorded. In the case of a break-in, robbery, or vandalism you can use the recorded footage to assist law enforcement in catching the criminal(s). This footage can also be used as evidence in a court of law when the criminals are facing persecution. Having a CCTV system in your home or business gives you a chance to get your property back and ensures that that no criminal act can be committed against you or your property without it being caught on camera. In addition to being used by the authorities and courts, the recorded footage of the crime can be provided to your insurance company in order to help you get compensation for your goods and property. In a non criminal setting, the cameras can also be used to monitor your children who may be playing in the other room while you are busy working on something else.
