Speaking of advances in technology, CCTVs now provide a new level of sophistication, such as infrared night vision. The ability to monitor in dark is obviously fundamental to a comprehensive home security system. Another development is Passive Infrared motion detection facilities and Pan Tilt Zoom cameras. These cameras are able to rotate horiszontally through 360 degrees, vertically through 900 and have zoom lenses capable of giving more than ten times current optical zoom.
Adding a further level of security are covert CCTV cameras available in 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.
Apart from obvious merit of monitoring your home and valuables while away from your home, CCTV Images have also been used as evidence and so offer a greater chance of catching culprit should any offence take place. These cameras provide visual evidence of offender’s crimes. Once people know they have been videotaped there is little, they admit to offense immediately. Such benefits, advance technology and easy availability make CCTVs most widely used and relied upon security measure used in not only homes but also banks, offices, hospitals and other commercial enterprises.
