CCTV Surveillance System

Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors. It differs from broadcast television in that the signal is not openly transmitted, though it may employ point to point (P2P), point to multipoint, or mesh wireless links. Though almost all video cameras fit this definition, the term is most often applied to those used for surveillance in areas that may need monitoring such as banks, casinos, airports, military installations, convenience stores and the fastest growing trend is the home security systems. Video telephony is seldom called “CCTV” but the use of video in distance education, where it is a very important tool.. (CCTV) cameras can produce images or recordings for surveillance purposes, and can be either video cameras, or digital stills cameras and can be viewed from virtually anywhere in the world where an internet connection is available.

CCTV is becoming more sought after in the private home sector as an additional level of security. The wiring required to install a CCTV system is Data cabling. What you need to determine is where would you want to install the CCTV cameras and wherever you want the camera you need to install a data outlet. The location where you install the cameras will vary from home to home but typically they are installed so you can see anyone approaching any of the entry areas of the home.

The advantage of an IP based system is the flexibility to add devices at a later time. That is you can cable to as many locations as you want and have it terminate on a data outlet near where you may be planning to add devices at a later stage. Adding the device is as simple as plugging it into the outlet and configuring the device.
