The year was 1942 and the country was Germany. That’s when and where CCTV first emerged. It was originally intended for use in observing the launch of V-2 rockets. Since then it has expanded all around the world, with it first entering the Australian market in Perth in July 1991. It was used by the City of Perth and acted as surveillance of the streets when police or other authorities could not physically operate on the ground.
Of course, CCTV footage is now used for a myriad of different reasons, the most common reason is to catch criminals. CCTV is used for public (government), private (residential) and corporate (business) purposes. All of these properties are at risk of being burgled, however with the right CCTV system you can reduce the risk of being burgled, criminal property damage, graffiti, safety in schools or industrial sectors and also used for access control.
CCTV should just be one component of your security system, with an alarm system being another component. Alarm systems are normally monitored by security companies who specialise in the monitoring of alarm systems. When the alarm is activated the control room will be alerted and the CCTV acts as a method to verify that the property has in fact been subjected to an unwanted intruder and that it is not a false alarm. CCTV has been instrumental in catching dangerous criminals and recovering stolen goods. In addition, CCTV footage is often used as evidence in a legal setting.
It is vital that businesses have a high quality security system that consists of CCTV monitoring because without it they could lose thousands of dollars in profits due to theft. CCTV also reduces the likelihood that staff will be tempted to take goods from the shelves when they think that nobody is watching. This is important if your staff have access to the business after hours. CCTV records 24 hours a day 7 days a week and should be set up so that every corner of the business is covered. Even better is that these days the CCTV technology has become more and more advanced so that you can monitor it from your mobile device which means when you are not on site.
It’s not just businesses that need to worry about theft. Individuals also do. While more and more people in Melbourne are living in apartments, some people do still live in houses and there is still the risk that someone will rob your house when you are at work or away on holiday. You will have peace of mind by getting CCTV installed. The CCTV will be monitored while you are away from your property.
