Video surveillance is everywhere these days, on average a daily commute to work each day your activities will be recorded by over 80 CCTV cameras. Cameras on neighbouring houses to cameras used on public roads and in town and cities, then the cameras used to monitor your place of work, they literally are everywhere and increasing. As technology gets more sophisticated and the image quality improves more and more and the price becomes more affordable cameras will increase tenfold.
Why is this happening? Well, that is the question. The main reason is that cameras are a means for watching everything and everyone, they don’t blink and they don’t miss anything, this makes them the ideal equipment for monitoring premises and people. They hold all the information of any crime being committed as it is recorded literally, like watching a re-run of a movie. The more you watch the movie the more things you notice that you did not see first time round. This is the same with cctv cameras you don’t have to rely on what someone saw at the time, being unsure what someone was wearing or who hit who first, its all there on video
and this video can be used in court as evidence as it very difficult to say it was not you when your there on the large screen in full colour.
This is the reason why there are so many CCTV cameras around and increasing, people want to know who tried to steal their car and then with the aid of social media it’s not long before someone can tell them who it is. It’s the satisfaction of knowing who it was and not being the ones who never find out who it was trying to steal their car, it is also the old justice system coming into play with the naming and shaming the person. So, everyone know that that person goes around trying to steal cars or break into homes or steels from garden sheds.
The quality on cameras currently on the market currently offer amazing image quality even at night where the image in no longer grainy and blurry and the object in the image is neither recognisable as a person is now a thing of the past, The images now are full colour bright image even in total darkness where you can see everything and many cameras now record the sound so not only can you see them you can now hear what is being said.
