Security cameras (often referred to as closed-circuit television or CCTV) provide a powerful deterrent for criminal activity when used as part of a security system.
Facial recognition (an image of a face) can now be used in court, hence would-be burglars are very wary about being identified on CCTV.
If there is an instance of burglars getting into your home or business premises, then security cameras can be set up to monitor such intrusions, and alert authorities or security guards.
CCTV can be used in a vacant or occupied property. Whether at home or office, surveillance can monitor visitors to your premises, so you can identify them before answering the door.
There are many reasons for installing a CCTV security system in your business. A typical commercial property can have a number of sensitive areas, such as private car parks and storage units. CCTV can be used to identify delivery drivers and their vehicles before they enter the premises.
Security cameras can be a useful addition to help prevent internal workplace criminal acts, with systems set up to monitor people and staff.
Security systems can be designed around the applications, which will lead to a more efficient and effective system. Prior to installation you need to gain a thorough knowledge of the layout of the property, highlighting any particular trouble spots and concerns.
After installation a CCTV system can monitor your premises 24 hours a day, inside and out, to help with crime detection and enable early intervention when a monitoring service is included.
A specialist installation firm will advise you on the applicable privacy laws you need to adhere to when installing CCTV. There are also data protection rules governing where you can film and how long you can store the images.
