Modern CCTV systems have come a long way over the past 10 years. Even the most cost-effective modern CCTV system is extremely advance, providing highly detailed black-and-white or full colour images in HD – the days of juddering, low-resolution VHS footage are long gone.
With the advances in internet technology and an increased usage amongst domestic and commercial users, it is also possible to monitor your system directly from your mobile device or computer, no matter where you are, and in ‘real-time’. This is perfect for those who go on holidays frequently, are often away with work, or who conduct business away from the office.
Outside of being able to monitor your premises, CCTV cameras continue to serve as an excellent visual deterrent for burglars. This remains biggest and most recognised benefit for those who choose to add CCTV systems to their property. Just like seeing an alarm system installed, an intruder seeing cameras may decide that it’s easier and safer to move elsewhere. It’s much better to prevent intrusion than dealing with it after it’s occurred.
