Caught in the Act
Crime rates in a lot of countries are steadily rising. This is due to the fact that poverty in some countries is not addressed and people are resorting to these heinous acts in order to sustain themselves or just simply to do evil. This is why the invention of the CCTV (closed circuit television) camera was made. This camera is designed to detect and capture images of these evil people so that local authorities will have the chance to catch them.
These cameras have different resolutions. The more intricate and expensive the camera, the better the image being taken. But, it is not necessary that you buy the most expensive one just to get a good picture. You are able to link most of these cameras to your computer or digital TV at home and you can monitor things from there. This method is mostly preferred by people who are monitoring their businesses but cannot afford the high priced cameras.
Another form that the CCTV camera can do is the motion capture feature. Some cameras have this feature of which it only activates when there is something moving in their field of vision. This works well in houses for persons who are in vacation and cannot have someone to take care of their home while they are away. It also is used in traffic cameras to detect speeding motorists and capture their plates when they violate traffic rules.
Network cameras are also one of the multiple kinds of cameras available in the market. This camera allows you as a businessperson to monitor your business and capture digital images of the culprit in action and even in high speed movement; they can still be captured on camera without any problem. This is usually used in banks and high end business establishments as acquiring and maintaining this kind of system of cameras usually takes a lot of money. An example of this is in casinos wherein you can zoom in on any persons who you see cheating in the tables or robbing someone on a dark part of the casino.
Law enforcement agencies have found that this camera have made it possible for a lot of criminals to be put in jail. This is because the images provide proof without reasonable doubt that the person caught is the one who is in the video and doing the heinous act. It has also has a lifesaving potential of which people who are living in very shady places would like to have. If you were in an accident or in a robbery and you were gravely wounded, a CCTV camera in the right place will catch the act and also alert the right people to call an ambulance to save your life.
