Pros of video surveillance cameras
This way, you always know what is going on at home or in your business even when you are not physically present.
This lets you take action fast. In case of burglaries or emergencies, you can call the necessary services and get the situation managed fast.Using video surveillance cameras significantly reduces response times compared to most other systems.
Properly placed cameras can capture vehicle license plates numbers and clear shots of someone’s face. These can be used as evidence in court too.
Cons of surveillance cameras
A solution to this would be to have a network of cameras strategically placed to cover all entryways and places of importance.
It is recommended to let everyone in your home or office (including guests) know that you have a surveillance camera system in place. If you are only installing the system for surveillance when no one is around, making this known, will make people more comfortable.
Some examples of such are when you are sleeping, on a vacation in a different country, in an area with bad Wi-Fi or cell phone reception, or when driving or swimming.
