CCTV Systems are an obvious visual deterrent, and where an intruder system is present it is almost guaranteed that any perpetrator would reconsider burglary, causing damage or harm.
CCTV cameras are not just for commercial use, they are used for many purposes from capturing a crime on your property for evidence, reducing the risk of health and safety codes being violated keeping everyone safe, or even simply being able to see who is at your front door. Check out an example of them in use at a farm here. Fitted with infra-red for improved night time vision, now available for internal and external cameras, not even hiding under the cover of darkness is an option. Robotic flood lights with built in CCTV cameras are also useful because not only do they light up the area where motion has been detected but they also track the cause of the trigger whilst recording fully lit images.
In most cases your CCTV system can be connected to your TV or a PC monitor. And with the correct equipment, (computer, tablet or Smartphone) it is possible to view the CCTV images from anywhere in the world! You don’t even require a separate monitor or recording device, just 3G or a Wi-Fi router is needed for your device.
