In the world we live in, we are under almost constant surveillance anytime we step outside of the comfort of our own homes. Whether we are fueling up at the local gas station or picking up a few groceries for supper, there is a good chance that there is a camera somewhere recording our every move. Cameras are used by businesses to protect themselves from theft and to identify criminals. Even schools use them to monitor students and prevent dangerous situations.

With the massive gains in technology and price reductions video surveillance is becoming very popular and is not just for “Big Businesses” anymore. At Eagle Tech Corp, the expression that they see on their clients’ faces when they see their cameras on a monitor for the first time is priceless.

It is not just government buildings and businesses that can put these types of systems to use. Even homeowners can use a basic security system to record activity at their front door, backyard, or driveway in order to provide themselves with a greater peace of mind. Parents may even want to consider using a surveillance system to monitor their children, especially if they have young ones that they are worried about or if they are looking to keep an eye on caregivers while they are not around.

Most security camera systems work in basically the same way. A camera records activity which is then displayed on a monitor of some type. Of course, there are systems that are very advanced and they utilize things like infrared technology and remote viewing to allow an individual to see what is going on even in lowlight conditions while they are thousands of miles away. The most basic system, on the other hand, generally involves a camera which is connected to a television or computer monitor and some type of recording device to keep a record of surveillance.

While a top-of-the-line, hardwired security system cost more than the popular “Ring” or “Nest” doorbell cameras. Still many existing and new construction homeowners are opting to hire a professional to hardwire their homes so that they are able to take advantage of the superior quality of Professional Grade 1080p even 4k video surveillance systems, with live viewing, remote playback, recording and no monthly fees.

A business, on the other hand, that is looking to monitor an area like a parking garage, warehouse, or dimly lit lot will want to consider something like an infrared camera designed specifically for outdoor use with either a wide angle lens or the ability to pan, tilt, and zoom so that they can see as much of the area as possible without having to install more cameras than are necessary.

Although cameras are valuable when it comes to recording criminal activity, the simple act of installing a camera can deter criminals from committing a crime in the first place.

When it comes to a simple deterrent that can protect an individual’s valuables and their safety, a simple security camera provides a level of protection that is difficult to beat.
