Home security cameras or professional security cameras provide many benefits. First of all, cameras help law enforcement to identify intruders. In addition, potential thieves will be deterred by the site of a camera and therefore much less likely to intrude. Furthermore, surveillance cameras are useful in areas where intruders would otherwise avoid detection and remain hidden due to blind-spots.
Cameras typically come as part of alarm monitoring packages that may also include fire and flood detection.
Security cameras can capture people, events, or even vehicle license plates. Additional zoom or wide angle lenses can be used to view activities from great distances – even a kilometre away. You can view a wide area that regular lenses may not capture. Night vision can be used to record in extreme low light conditions, or even in the dark. Cameras can be mounted in a fixed position to aim directly at a specific point, or they can move to view a 360 degree area.
The benefits for businesses include loss prevention, safety, intrusion deterrent, and as an investigation tool. Guard against theft, intrusion, and vandalism!
