Today, asset protection is a priority for businesses, gated communities, and homes alike. A closed-circuit TV is a comprehensive video surveillance system, which can be adapted to the needs of practically any place and has multiple applications in theft protection, in the control of production processes, in the monitoring of children, and many other functions. In this article, we tell you how a CCTV operates, what technological alternatives the market offers, and what you should do to ensure that the solution you implement gives you the results you need.
For a few years now, video surveillance has reached every aspect of our life. We began by seeing this architecture in the movies, as a distinctive element of science fiction, but today we are no longer amazed by its massive presence, both in public and private places. The decision to install a closed-circuit TV, or CCTV according to its acronym, is very common and is no longer limited to large companies, public bodies or residential complexes, but reaches private homes and small organizations in search of the long-awaited tranquility.
The name “closed-circuit” comes from the fact that the different components of the system are connected, linked together since the images that are collected and generated through it cannot be seen outside of it.
As we said before, the alternatives that this type of system offers are innumerable, making them adaptable to the requirements of different types of locations. They can be simply composed of one or more cameras connected to a television monitor that reproduces the captured images or linked to integrated security systems, which allow complete monitoring and vision in complex contexts.
Given this situation, the key to being successful on a project is to carefully plan for needs and work with a team of experienced and specialized security consultants like Defense Cybersecurity.
