CCTV’s provide 24-hour security surveillance capabilities and provide peace of mind for home owners and businesses who wish to protect themselves from undesirables.

How do CCTV Cameras Work?

CCTV Cameras work by transmitting video footage through a closed circuit. This means that the video cannot be transmitted to an outside device. CCTV cameras, CCTV monitors and CCTV recorders all are linked to provide immediate access to security footage. The CCTV camera enables you to watch live video streams of what the camera is recording. The CCTV footage is then also sent to a digital video recorder where it is stored. CCTV cameras are usually small and able to be installed in inconspicuous places, out of plain sight from people, both indoors or outdoors and they can even be installed in gardens.
