CCTV is short-term for closed circuit television

When it comes to your security, you have many more options than you used to. While security used to consist of a security guard, there are now so many other things that can help out! One of those things is CCTV. CCTV is short-term for closed circuit television, something that most businesses and even some homes apply today. With general television, signals are broadcast and anyone with the right antenna can pick them up. With CCTV, however, the information from cameras is broadcast and only authorized access can pick it up. Now that you know what CCTV is, you might be wondering if your business really needs it!

There are few businesses that couldn’t benefit from having CCTV. Because you’re able to store and watch the feed from your CCTV, if you have a break-in, theft, vandalism or other issue, you can be prepared for when authorities arrive with an explanation of what happened, what was taken and even what the person(s) look like. Additionally, CCTV is an excellent deterrent of would-be criminals. No one wants to commit a crime while a camera is recording their every move, clothing type, height, build, and facial features!
