Are you a homeowner or own a business? Are you looking to add a security system to your home or business? You know what you want to cover, but don’t know what camera quality may be best for you? Well, there are a variety of qualities that are out in technology these days. At Security Surveillance System we offer 2K, 4K, and even 8K systems. You may be wondering, what does the K stand for in 2K, 4K, or 8K, which some people didn’t even know existed? K stands for thousand, and it is referring to the number of pixels built into the camera. When there are more pixels in an image, the picture will stand out more in details, henceforth the higher the quality. Cameras come in many shapes and sizes, but the main purpose of a security camera is the image it transfers to a monitor. Security Surveillance System offers many unique cameras from 2 thousand up to 16 thousand pixels. Depending on your needs, detail is really important. For example, a 2K camera will be able to catch the face of a victim, 4k might catch the jewelry the victim was wearing, but 8K will catch the slightest and most important details, like the tattoo of the victim or the marks and bruise they might have. Not that the 2K and 4K will not catch that, but the detail will be remarkable in 8K footage.
Televisions have advanced majorly in the past decades, we went from box TV’s to flat screen HDTVs that show you an image almost close to reality. Soon, 8K TV’s will be offered in retail, which will bring visions of reality to life when showing you the footage on screen. When an incident happened, the TV that the camera footage is transferred may not yet be able to handle it when footage is minimized, but when the footage is maximized, the detail in the footage is remarkable and unbelievable. We also offer HD 1080p, our economical packages still clear as day, but to maximize efficiency and performance, 8K is the way to go.

In a study by Mikael Priks of the Leibniz Institute for Economic Research at the University of Munich, newly installed surveillance cameras in subway stations in Stockholm, Sweden were shown to decrease crime in that area. Cameras were installed in over 80 subway stations in Stockholm and stayed in operation for two years. The overall crime rate in these usually high-crime stations was reduced by 20 percent, and incidences of robbery, drug-related crime and pickpocketing were reduced by 20-40%. What was also found was that crime outside of the stations where there weren’t any cameras was also reduced.
In Baltimore, Maryland, the city placed hundreds of security cameras in the high-crime and downtown areas. These cameras are “actively monitored” by retired police officers. A study done on this surveillance system showed that there has been a reduction of at least 30 incidents of criminal activity per month since installment. According to the Urban Institute, while the city spent a whopping $8 million on the system (installation and maintenance), they have saved over $12 million in criminal justice costs!
Although the success rate of crime reduction in security camera use depends on users actively monitoring the system , the majority of studies about this subject come to the conclusion that camera surveillance is indeed a great tool to prevent crime in public spaces, homes, and businesses.
