CCTV Home Security

Aug 7, 2008
When you monitor your home or office with closed circuit television (CCTV) surveillance, it's like you have an entire television network devoted to the safety of your home. CCTV broadcasts your security surveillance on a private in-home network. Unlike broadcast television, CCTV components are hooked directly to each other via cables or direct wireless means. Already popular in large public places where security is heightened, such as at airports or casinos, CCTV surveillance systems are becoming more and more widely used in private home settings as well.

What is CCTV exactly? CCTV is a surveillance technology used initially to monitor commercial properties and public places, but has been adapted to the residential property to help home security. It is basically a camera, or a network of linked cameras, that produce viewable and recordable images. It would be quite unusual for a comprehensive security system to be without CCTV. The cameras can interface with other systems such as alarms i.e. the cameras can start recording when an alarm is triggered either automatically or by human intervention. Nowadays, wireless CCTVs systems are gaining popularity as they obviously do away with wiring systems and they are also easier to operate and maintain. They are also easier to protect from being compromised. The wireless cameras also allow for more flexibility and mobility, as it is much easier to install wireless cameras, even in the most inaccessible areas.

The same CCTV video surveillance technology used in our public venues is available for your home. We offer CCTV systems that can monitor every room in your home with clear, high visibility images. CCTV surveillance is available for 4, 9, or up to 16 rooms in your home. By monitoring your family's security on a CCTV network, you are able to record suspicious activities as they occur. Monitor your yard, front door, garage, even your mailbox.

You can set up a wireless security camera for remote viewing or for videotaping. This allows you to monitor what's going on at home even if you can't be there all the time.

Adding a further level of security are the covert CCTV cameras available in the market. Also known as miniature cameras, these CCTV cameras are very small or easy to disguise thus enabling so called covert surveillance. Normal CCTV cameras still prove effective, but are vulnerable to tampering and damage by any would be offender. These hidden or mini CCTVs offer an extra level of security to your property.
