Have you felt that you were being watched ? Do not dismiss that feeling as paranoia. Perhaps you are being watched.
In light of recent terrorist attacks and the increase in the rate of crime, people from both the public and private sector have been obsessively setting up digital video surveillance systems.
These days, it’s almost impossible to enter a building or even stand on the sidewalk of a busy street without a video surveillance system “keeping an eye on you”.
Video Surveillance System
Digital video surveillance systems are designed as a security measure to record criminal activity. They are also intended to serve as a deterrent to crime.
With all the different digital video surveillance systems available today, it’s important that you choose the right video surveillance system for you.
Digital video surveillance systems come with a big price tag so before investing much time looking into any particular system, make sure that it’s one that fits within your budget.
Do not attempt to install your video surveillance system yourself
Video surveillance systems can be a complex labyrinth of wires, cameras, and monitors so is very important that you have your system installed by a professional installer.
Scare off the bad guys
Video surveillance cameras are a very real threat to criminals. Just the appearance of a video surveillance camera and the thought of “having their picture taken” will usually send crooks on down the road.
Catching criminals is not the only purpose that video camera surveillance systems serve.
Let’s discuss a couple of other legitimate uses for video surveillance cameras…
Sleeping employees busted by the boss
The lack of trust that employers have for their employees today has resulted in employers installing video surveillance systems in their businesses. Employees are viewed and recorded chatting with their friends and family members during office hours.
Video surveillance systems have also caught employees sleeping during meetings and seminars. Employees are caught stealing office property for their personal use.
The decision to install a video surveillance system often times blows the cover of lazy employees as well as those stealing office supplies.
