CCTV Cameras: What Are They and Who Needs Them?

Home > Security Solutions Blog > CCTV Cameras: What Are They and Who Needs Them?

If you are currently looking into a security system for your home or business, you may have seen or heard about CCTV cameras. CCTV stands for closed-circuit television, and it basically refers to video surveillance. It is referred to as closed-circuit because the video is not openly transmitted, but the footage is instead only sent to a set number of surveillance monitors. Most of us can picture scenes from movies of someone looking at several rooms throughout a business over multiple screens. This is that basic idea of a CCTV camera.

CCTV Cameras: What Are They and Who Needs Them?

A CCTV camera allows you to keep a constant watch on multiple areas in a building, whether or not you are there. These cameras can also be set up and monitored by an alarm monitoring company.

So, who can or should use CCTV cameras?

  • Schools and daycares: Cameras can deter unprofessional and/or unlawful behavior from employees, and they can also protect employees from any claims that may be made against them.
  • HOAs or residential buildings: Your complex or neighborhood group may be able to keep acts of vandalism, theft, or violence at a minimum with the use of CCTV cameras and provide helpful evidence should any of these acts occur.
  • Retail or other commercial businesses: Any business that is dealing with money or the exchange of goods may find that its safety is improved with the help of CCTV cameras.
  • Warehouses or factories: You may find the productivity of employees is better when they know video footage is being recorded. CCTV cameras can also help prevent harassment in the workplace.

The truth is that almost any company or residence can benefit from CCTV cameras. To learn more, contact us at Safe N Sound Inc.
