3 myths about CCTV debunked
Security cameras have been protecting our homes and businesses for decades, but there are still a number of myths and misconceptions that surround this technology, including:
Anyone can install CCTV
Although it is technically true that anyone can install a CCTV system, it is highly advised against. People install CCTV systems in their property in order to protect their belongings, and by permitting someone with little to no experience to install the cameras themselves, they may make a mistake or set up the camera in the wrong location. To avoid experiencing the horror of looking through your security camera footage after a burglary only to find that the CCTV camera did not capture the event, get in touch with an expert CCTV installer to make your security system work optimally.
CCTV is difficult to use
For anyone who isn’t as skilled in the technology department, you might avoid installing a CCTV system in your property due to the fear that it might be difficult to use. However, modern CCTV footage is very simple to monitor. After setting up your security camera to save the footage onto your own device, all you need to do is to log in to your computer, smartphone or TV to access your footage. With the most up-to-date security systems, you can even check your security camera activity when you’re out and about.
CCTV is enough to keep my property secure
CCTV systems are an extremely effective layer of security, but they are not enough to keep your home completely secure. Not all potential criminals will be deterred by the presence of a CCTV camera, so it’s best to install additional security measures in your home or business premises, such as an alarm system to alert the police when someone enters your property without your authorisation.
