Description: CCTV is a monitoring system that allows a business to record footage based on the system's programming. A closed circuit television, or CCTV, describes a system that captures and records video on a closed, connected system. This differs from broadcast television in that a CCTV system involves a direct cable or wireless connection between a camera, receiver and recording device, as opposed to a wireless signal publicly broadcast to multiple, properly attuned receivers. CCTV systems are used for surveillance purposes, to increase levels of safety and security.
Systems are often implemented because they: Detect theft, Reduce vandalism, Monitor high risk or secure areas, Ensure quality control, Decrease liabilities (ex. fraudulent injury claims), Increase safety for staff in facilities and parking areas, Provide evidence by recording from the earliest stages of break-in attempts, Confirm remote processes are running properly etc.,
