CCTV (Closed-Circuit Television) is the use of video cameras transmitting a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors. In recent years the use of CCTV has grown in mammoth proportions, it is rare to be able to walk anywhere without being watched with more and more public areas being monitored as anti-social behaviour increases.
The installation of a visible CCTV system might not stop all crime, however it does act as a deterrent. The evolution of the system has made it easy to become confused by what your business might require, but it is clear that the knowledge that there is a working CCTV system brings peace of mind for all stakeholders involved your business.
So how would you go about choosing the right system for your business?
Newly arriving on the CCTV scene is internet protocol cameras (IP cameras). IP cameras use the Internet Protocol (IP) used by most Local Area Networks (LANs) to transmit video across data networks in digital form. IP can optionally be transmitted across the public internet, allowing users to view their camera(s) through any internet connection available through a computer or even a smartphone! Whilst Video over IP used to be seen as a solution for your larger scale projects recent developments in technology have provided the same solutions for small and medium sized installations as well.
Closed-circuit digital photography (CCDP) is more suited for capturing and saving recorded high-resolution photographs, whereas closed-circuit television (CCTV) is more suitable for live-monitoring purposes.
