One of the most popular uses for CCTV systems is for residential security. Closed Circuit TV broadcasts to specific monitors and requires proper cables or wireless receivers and transmitters to send the signal to the specified location. If you are considering a CCTV system, let Home Media Solutions help you determine the best system for your home whether you need onsite viewing or remote viewing or both.
Home surveillance and security cameras are utilized to help deter theft or break-ins and can also provide a way for a homeowner to be able to view the things that are going on in or around his or her home at any time of day or night. Having the recorded video allows you to go back to the time when the problem occurred and see exactly what was going on. Providing this evidence to the authorities can make all the difference in the perpetrator going free or being caught.
