What Is CCTV and Why Do I Need It?
CCTV surveillance systems use indoor and outdoor cameras to monitor your property. The cameras send signals over a closed circuit, allowing you to view live surveillance footage at any given time. Most systems also let you record surveillance footage around the clock, so if a crime is committed on your property, you have proof.
Did you know that the overall crime rate in San Antonio, Texas, is 108% higher than the national average? Property crimes are especially prevalent in the city but installing a closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance system lowers your risk of becoming a victim.
CCTV Surveillance System Options
CCTV surveillance systems use a variety of components, making it easy to customize a system to fit your needs. For example, if you own a home that’s occupied most of the time, you might save a few bucks by only installing outdoor cameras. Some things to consider when purchasing a system include:
- The number of cameras you need to secure your property.
- Do you want cameras inside, outside, or both?
- Whether you want to view footage on your TV or you prefer to use IP cameras to view footage online.
- Do you need a system that records video?
- Would you prefer traditional or wireless cameras?
