Most CCTV security surveillance systems employ a dual-mode technology using digital and analog audio monitors. This provides flexibility in choosing monitor stations that provide CCTV coverage with the security measures included in one system, without the need for additional hardware. A CCTV system with video monitoring is ideal for high value or restricted areas, where physical access is required. It can also provide remote access from a location with Internet connectivity. The installation of a CCTV security surveillance systems consists of the acquisition of a camera, mounting the same at the desired location, and installing the appropriate CCTV software.

Home surveillance systems can be used for many different purposes, such as monitoring employees’ activities, identifying intruders, and conducting home inspections. Security surveillance systems are also valuable for security purposes at business premises, such as storing and monitoring valuable or sensitive information. Some companies provide mobile video surveillance systems so that the surveillance can be carried out when needed, without requiring an employee to be onsite at the time.

One of the main benefits of CCTV surveillance systems is their ability to provide visual evidence on demand, which means that a crime scene investigator can obtain visual images of what really took place at any point during the crime without having to wait for equipment to be recovered, or for a suspect to be interviewed. In an ideal situation, a CCTV surveillance system can be operated through radio communications between the monitoring station and the camera. The images from a CCTV surveillance system can then be transmitted to a central monitoring station or a personal computer. Another benefit of CCTV surveillance systems is that they can provide evidence against a suspected offender long before he or she has been arrested or convicted.

There are two types of CCTV security surveillance equipment, those which record video images directly and those which record information on an audio format. The majority of today’s cameras record both video and audio. It is possible to watch a person in action, say as they walk past a door, and get a live viewing of what takes place without the need for physically watching the person. The recording can then be played back later for a more detailed and in-depth view of what took place. For security purposes this type of footage is especially important.

In some cases it may not be practical or reasonable to install a CCTV system in an area. This is particularly true in businesses where it would be impractical or impossible to have staff monitoring all areas at all times. CCTV cameras can therefore be used in areas where access is limited, but still required to ensure that safety is achieved. Some CCTV cameras today even have the capability to alert security personnel if there is danger present in the surrounding area. This is especially useful in the case of dangerous animals.

Installing a CCTV security surveillance equipment is a relatively straightforward process but care should be taken to ensure that you are buying a camera which is suitable for your purpose. A CCTV security camera is generally only suitable for the purposes that it is intended for. For example, a CCTV video surveillance camera is not suitable for installing in a place where there are people who are permanently employed such as a factory or a mine. If you intend to install a CCTV security camera outside your home then it is advisable to get advice from a security consultant first.
