More and more, business and homeowners alike are implementing CCTV (closed circuit TV) as part of their security system. With a range of set-ups and equipment, CCTV systems can be integrated with your security camera systems to fit your needs.
How Does CCTV Work?
Closed circuit TV uses cables, wireless receivers and transmitters to send video to specific monitors. Depending on the type of system you choose, there are set-ups with remote viewing options, onsite viewing options or both. Security camera systems broadcast signals to certain monitors and the video is then recorded using a DVR (digital video recorder) or NVR (network video recorder).
Why Use CCTV?
There are a number of benefits to using CCTV as a part of your security system, for both homes and businesses. Some of the advantages to employing home surveillance and CCTV systems include:
- Discourages break-ins, theft and vandalism.
- Allows you to keep an eye on what’s going on any time, day or night.
- Can be used as evidence for authorities to help catch the guilty party and to assist in court if charges are pressed.
- Enables you to go back and view exactly what happened when a problem occurred.
