The biggest issue that law enforcement agencies face when they’re trying to solve crimes is that either they do not have any footage to review because there was no CCTV to capture the crime on camera, or that there is so much footage to go through that they spend hours, if not days or weeks trawling through footage to identify when a crime took place and what the assailant looks like. The reason for this is that some cameras constantly run 24 hours a day seven days a week, which means that they will capture everything. This was the case with a suspicious disappearance of a holidaymaker in the USA. Authorities had to trawl through a lot of footage and even then the security cameras did not capture the footage that they needed which meant that they chased a lot of dead ends.
You don’t have this problem when you install a motion detector camera because it is set up differently to other cameras. A motion detector camera will normally be installed in a doorway or another area where there is likely to be a change in motion, for example it may be the entrance of a car park or the entrance of a public bathroom or lift. The motion detector camera has sensors that will detect any movement so that means if it senses that there have been enough changes in motion, it will start recording and you will then have footage you can review that may lead to the capture of a criminal or prevent a crime taking place in the first place. The reality is that most criminals do not want to be caught and any security cameras, but especially motion detector cameras can act as a deterrent. They act as a deterrent because the recording only features suspicious activity, so whilst CCTV that operates 24/7 may still contain relevant footage, authorities can move much quicker when they only have to review relevant footage.
The bonus of that is that if goods are stolen or school property is taken authorities can see exactly what property the criminals took and then take steps to track it down so you’re likely to get it back much faster.
