The Many Uses of CCTV

One of the greatest equipments of modern security systems is CCTV. CCTV is the short form of Close Circuit Television. This equipment helps to monitor stores and other places from anti-social activities like theft, vandalism, shop-lifting, criminal actions and many more.

Some remote video surveillance cameras have the option of being remote-controlled by a user. This is usually known as the Pan/Tilt/Zoom or PTZ function. This function allows cameras to monitor a wider range of space than they normally could. Dome cameras take advantage of this function when they become remote security cameras. Their one-way vision glass keeps criminals confused about where the remote security camera is viewing, causing uncertainty in addition to providing the camera with protection.

Closed Circuit Televisions are also being used to monitor traffic on highways and motorways. The CCTVs can point out the places where there is a traffic jam or an accident, allowing measures to be taken within minutes.

? IP cameras also provide secure transmission of data through encryption and authentication methods including WEP, WPA, WPA2, KKIP, AES, etc.

In closing, if you are in the market for CCTV cameras and are looking for a way to advance the overall security device that surrounds various assets that you may have, it is truly worth your time to seriously evaluate the AVTech Surveillance camera technology that we have been discussing. You will truly be surprised by just how wonderful this technology is and the difference it can make for you and your business.

If you live in a relatively safe area or have a business in a secure place such as a locked shopping centre, then your needs will be different from a place where crime is very high and businesses are regularly broken into. There are a few different types of alarm system on the market. First of all you can purchase a simple perimeter alarm system. These work because when an intruder crosses the invisible boundary, or does something like climb through a window then the circuit will be broken (or completed depending on the type of alarm purchased) and the alarm will sound. These work well and can act as a deterrent as there is usually some kind of box on display on the house indicating the alarm is set.
