CCTV Home Surveillance System
By Ralph Winn

When you monitor your home or office with closed circuit television (CCTV) surveillance, it's like you have an entire television network devoted to the safety of your home. CCTV broadcasts your security surveillance on a private in-home network. Unlike broadcast television, CCTV components are hooked directly to each other via cables or direct wireless means. Already popular in large public places where security is heightened, such as at airports or casinos, CCTV surveillance systems are becoming more and more widely used in private home settings as well.

CCTV is inexpensive and simple to use, and it will help increase your security and your peace of mind.

CCTV Technology and Crime

Many independent studies in the United States and United Kingdom have suggested that CCTV surveillance acts as a powerful deterrent, stopping crimes before they happen. Studies also show strong evidence that CCTV can be an extremely effective tool in detection and prosecution. The men believed to have been responsible for the July terrorist attacks on London's public transport system were later identified on the prevalent CCTV networks in the U.K.'s public places.
