The Benefits of CCTV

With the cost of CCTV systems reducing quite dramatically over the past decade, a camera system for the home and small business has now become a viable security add-on for the majority of people. Current estimates suggest that there are more than 5.2 million CCTV cameras in the UK.  From a home owners  using simple single camera that views callers at the entrance door to a full-blown system which can monitor and record anything that takes place within the curtilage of the dwelling. Business ownership of CCTV is expected nowadays.
