Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors. CCTV is often used for surveillance in areas that may need monitoring such as banks, casinos, airports, military installations, and convenience stores.
CCTV systems may operate continuously or only as required to monitor a particular event. A more advanced form of CCTV, utilizing Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), provides recording for possibly many years, with a variety of quality and performance options and extra features (such as motion-detection and email alerts).
The systems are fully compliant with all the different mobile equipment which are available today for remote viewing if the customer is away from the secured location.
Some of the benefits of a fully functional CCTV system include:
Round the clock monitoring and recording of a set perimeter over a set period of time.
Remote management of the CCTV system from anywhere in the world.
Scheduled backup of recorded or monitored data at various location both local and remote.
Covert monitoring of certain key areas within business proximity.
