CCTV SECURITY -provides all-seeing eyes in vulnerable crime areas
CCTV Security is becoming increasingly affordable and a growing number of private households are, along with numerous businesses, investing in the latest state-of-the-art CCTV solutions. There is a growing need for cities in South Africa to have CCTV security on every corner in the run up to the Soccer World Cup in 2010, especially because foreigners expect nothing less in terms of their safety. Closed circuit television cameras can provide all-seeing eyes in areas vulnerable to crime, like soccer stadiums and shopping malls.
CCTV can be used in a wide range of situations to detect and reduce crime. Placed on the roofs of city buildings, the cameras give the operators a bird's eye view of the whole city, helping the police to monitor the area closely. They have clear lenses that can zoom in accurately up to three kilometres, and the time and date on which a crime is committed is recorded, and is permitted as evidence in court.
Closed circuit television has been around for decades, so a business without an up to date CCTV security system opens itself up to burglary and vandalism. Ranging from a basic camera and monitor to highly sophisticated digital CCTV systems that offer nonstop recording, people are able to view their premises on their cellphones, laptops or desktop computers from anywhere in the world, and the systems can be equipped with an alarm to alert people to a crime.
Technology is great for deterring crime, and CCTV security improves the quality of life and personal safety of all people in South African cities.
It is imperative to have a suitable system meeting the appropriate standards to ensure its effectiveness, and it is therefore vital that the company you choose to do the installation is a company experienced in security installations and who meet the standards of workmanship and service you would expect
