How CCTV Cameras Work
CCTVs transmit video through a closed circuit, meaning the video recorded cannot be transmitted to an outside device. CCTV cameras, monitors and recorders all are directly connected to provide immediate access to security footage. A CCTV camera allows you to watch live streams of whatever the camera is recording. The footage is sent also to a digital video recorder where it is stored for later viewing. CCTV cameras are generally small and unobtrusive. They can be placed anywhere on the exterior or interior of a building. If you don’t want the cameras to be obvious, you can get small cameras that are easy to hide in plants or behind speakers.
Advantages of CCTV Cameras
The primary advantage is that CCTV acts as a crime deterrent. Potential criminals who see the camera may be dissuaded from following through with their planned criminal activities for fear of being caught on tape. This leads to another advantage of CCTV – increased safety. Increased safety for you, your employees and your customers is likely a top priority, and a CCTV camera can help achieve that. If a crime does occur, the CCTV camera can provide evidence needed to catch and convict the criminal. This can be especially useful if there are no witnesses to a crime or if witnesses are unreliable sources, since a camera records what actually happens. Another advantage is that you can monitor your business from anywhere. Technology allows you to watch the camera feed on your smartphone or via the internet. That means you can check in on your business during off-hours, on weekends or when you’re on vacation.
