Welcome to Security Cameras Advice, a guide to setting up a surveillance system in your home or office. There are a number of reasons people might want to use surveillance cameras. Parents have begun using them to monitor both their children and the people they entrust them to – often catching babysitters in the act of child abuse. Spouses have used CCTV systems to catch cheating significant others. Homeowners concerned about protecting their property frequently use them as both a deterrent against burglaries and a way to catch crooks after the fact. And employers can ensure that only their employees have access to an office, as well as for monitoring supplies or stock that is vulnerable to theft. This site will go through all the information you need to know – there are both ethical/moral issues to think about for the reason that you’re using the cameras, and there are technical factors to consider such as which security camera is the best for your needs, how you will want to install it (you’ll need to think about whether you want it hidden or out in the open – often, they’re more useful if people can see them), and where you’ll want to put it.
