Surveillance technology is constantly evolving and has by today reached a level when surveillance systems can be efficiently used not only for monitoring large areas, but also for deterring and stopping crime. Here is how:
- Visible reminders – most complex surveillance camera Denver video systems use cameras placed in visible as well in concealed places. The ones placed visibly work as a very efficient surveillance device that records whatever is going on in front of it as well as a warning sign, telling people planning to intrude the premises that they are being watched and their actions are recorded;
- Motion sensors – many cameras are equipped with motion sensors that turn on a strong light when they sense movement. Burglars usually pick the buildings that they want to enter after observing the building to identify the existing security measures and they are discouraged when they see a harsh light coming up whenever someone passes in front of the camera;
- Recording of the activities inside the building – crimes don’t have to come from outside – we all know of cases when the burglary was committed by the neighbor next door or when the theft that took place in a company was committed by one of the company’s employees. The surveillance cameras installed indoors warn the residents or the employees to refrain from illicit activities, thus helping to stop crime from within.
