The Advantages & Disadvantages of Surveillance Cameras
Technology is a double-sided blade. While innovation and upgrades can have many benefits for us, they can also be used to cause problems.
Although majority of us reap its advantages, but a few with vested interests continue to abuse this amazing tech and make the lives for the rest of us dreadful.
The surveillance camera is one of the greatest wonders of modern technology, which is used at homes as well as in businesses. It has gained immense popularity as an effective home or business security measure, thanks to the large number of benefits it offers.
But just like other great technology, security cameras have a few setbacks as well.
The advantages, however, outnumber the disadvantages, and this revolutionary technology continues to be popular with those serious about keeping their loved ones and assets safe and secure from intruders.
By far the greatest and the most obvious benefit of installing surveillance cameras are once they are placed, you will be able to see the effect on people almost immediately, even if they are placed out of sight, you will start feeling a sense of safety, which is priceless.
Whether you install the surveillance cameras in your home or at your business, you can prevent theft from occurring. The mere sight of the surveillance camera staring back at them, and just the thought of getting caught red handed are intimidating enough for trouble-makers to be on their best behaviour as they would know that their identity and illegal activity have been captured and can be used against them.
Whether you’re experiencing problems related to burglary or lack of productivity, your surveillance camera can provide you with the solutions needed. It empowers you and prevents your home and business from becoming easy targets.
There have been a few cases in the past where surveillance cameras have stirred up controversies, especially in professional environments. There have been instances where employees have objected to being under surveillance without their permission and citing the ‘invasion of their privacy’ as the reason. A few have also resorted to taking legal action against their employers for not obeying their privacy demands.
Critics of surveillance camera systems have taken offense to them being placed in offices and have fought that doing so implies that the employer has either already assumed or is convinced that his employees are up to no good and will do something illegal which is why their activities need to be recorded throughout the day.
