The Basics of CCTV
If you're looking into security for your home or business, first of all: congratulations on making the right choice. Today especially, it's absolutely essential to do whatever you can to protect your assets from criminals. Fortunately, technology is on your side.
By now, in the year 2016, we are all familiar with Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), usually colloquially referred to as "security cameras." Cameras are ubiquitous in shopping locations of all kinds, from grocery stores to banks, as well as homes especially in high-risk areas. Unfortunately, "high-risk areas" can be anywhere. People associate the term with crime-ridden inner cities, but in truth, you cannot rely on your perception of your neighborhood as "safe" to protect yourself and your property. A robbery can happen anywhere, anytime. Some criminals even target "safe" areas, relying on the fact that residents consider themselves safe and are likely unprepared.
Now that you have decided to take the valuable step of looking into CCTV, this article will start you out with what you need to know.
