After all of the school violence in the past 10-15 years, parents and communities have requested more and more security for their schools. Recently we are hearing of schools installing not only access control but also surveillance systems to be sure that no one goes in or out of the building undetected. They are installing cameras and duress buttons so that in the case of another violent act they will be able to communicate with the outside world without risking the lives of any of the students or personnel in the building. As parents, the most important job we have is to keep our kids healthy and safe and when they are out of our sight this becomes the job of those we trust our kids to. Children as young as 2nd and 3rd grade have been reported bringing weapons to school and then you hear about outside threats like what happened in Sandy Hook where a family member of one of the teachers came in and killed 20 children and 6 adults. As a result of this, the schools need to be protected better. With surveillance systems in place the evidence to put these criminals away will be right in front of their eyes and could very easily deter the criminals from acting on their intentions in the first place. Crime is going to happen no matter what because we have a society that has in so many ways devolved and the best way to respond is to protect the people and things we love the best we know how. At least with a surveillance camera the perfect crime is becoming a thing of the past.
Cameras, however, do not only need to be in our schools to protect our kids. With our economy the way it is and the cost of living going up more and more parents are both working and even more of them are single parents. We have no choice but to work full time to support our family and maintain a comfortable lifestyle. So more children are home alone after school and in that case a bigger target for thieves and criminals. What better way to ensure that your kids are safe and secure then to be able to watch over them from your phone, tablet or computer at work? With a remote access surveillance system you can log in from anywhere and check on your home and your children anytime and be sure that they are free from harm and even make sure they are behaving the way you expect hem to when you are not home.

In the world of advanced technology, Security cameras play an important role in safety and security. These security cameras are utilized for commercial as well as residential purposes. The main and foremost reason for getting security cameras is to observe and supervise during times that you cannot be there. It also ensures safety and security by ensuring that your investment is being monitored at all times. Security cameras are widely used in homes, businesses, malls, stores, convenience stores etc. With the amount of robbery and burglary activities on the rise, it is very important to install a security camera.
Sense of control –
When you are away from your home or business there is a sense that you are not completely in control of what is taking place.
As a home owner it may be that while you are at work you worry that your home and belongings are secure. You may even be a parent that worries that your children are home alone and are doing things they are not supposed to be doing. There is also the feeling that they are not safe because children are vulnerable to predators and negative influence when they are out of our care. Having Security Cameras installed in your home will allow you to monitor and check on them to be sure that they are safe and sound and that they are staying out of trouble.
As a business owner, if your business operates while you are away, you have a lot of money invested in your business and the most common form of theft is theft in the work place. As our economy is unstable more and more business owners are experiencing a rise in theft and there is no way to prove who is doing it unless you have evidence. You can eliminate your suspects but in the long run the fact is that if you don’t have the “evidence” they will not admit to it. Cash register theft, office supply theft and even merchandise theft cost both you and your customers money because as things are walking out the door you have to raise your prices to cover the cost. With a surveillance system we have solutions for all types of businesses including a POS system that ties right into your register and can watch your cash at all times.
As technology advances more and more people depend on their smart phones to stay connected. When our system is tied directly into an internet connection you will be able to log in to your system from anywhere in the world and monitor your home or business at times that you are not able to do it in person. This allows you to go on vacation, go to your other locations when you are a business owner that has more than one location and to monitor your investment at all times.
The existence of security cameras definitely reduces the chances of robbery and damage in homes, stores, shopping malls and various locations. As the actions are continuously observed it reduces the possibilities because the offenders never want to get caught. If there is a higher chance that they are going to get caught they will likely move on to the next home or business that doesn’t have cameras.
Assists in preserving proof
The data is recorded by the security camera in the form of videos that are regularly documented and saved on the server or DVR. As a result, this data is effortlessly recovered as needed and helps in preserving evidences and documentation if the authorities are involved.
The videos generated by the security camera are a legitimate evidence source and fact in opposition of the offender if the case should go to court. If any crime is to occur on private property where cameras are installed then the footage is admissible in court and can prove to be quite powerful evidence in a court of law.
Bottom line, Surveillance Systems cameras are our eyes when our eyes can not be there.

There are various types of security cameras found on the market in the present day and there are various security camera installation methods. The security surveillance system is the system which monitors activities, behavior, or other changing information of people in order to influence, direct, protect or manage them. The security surveillance system has the power of observation from a distance by means of various electronic equipment or to intercept electronically transmitted information such as phone calls or internet traffic. Instead of using simple and relatively low or no technology methods which include postal interception or human intelligence agents.
One system is the closed circuit camera which is commonly known as CCTV. This type of security cameras uses video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place which is on a limited set of monitors. Closed circuit cameras differ from broadcast television, as the signal is not transmitted openly, though it may employ transmission from point to point, from point to multi-point or from mesh to wireless links. In general, all video cameras fit this definition. Most often this term is applied to security surveillance systems in areas where monitoring is needed such as military installations, casinos, airports, banks and various convenience stores.
Another type of digital video camera which is commonly employed for surveillance is Internet protocol camera or commonly known as IP camera systems. Unlike the closed circuit television cameras, these cameras can send and receive data via the internet or a computer network. There are two kinds of IP cameras, the centralized IP camera which requires a centralized network video recorder to handle alarm management, video and recording and the other is the decentralized IP camera which has built in recording functions and thus can record directly to local storage media, like hard disk drives, flash drives or to standard network storage attachment.
A more modern type of security camera is mainly wireless camera. These are the closed circuit television cameras which transmit an audio and video signal to a receiver through a radio band. Many wireless cameras require at least one wire or cable for power, while the transmission of audio or video requires no wiring to the wireless devices. Some of the wireless cameras are powered by battery making the cameras totally wireless from top to bottom. Due to these various types of cameras and various mechanisms of operating, security camera installation methods vary from one to another.
