How CCTV cameras keep you safe
To be honest, it’s difficult to find a place without CCTV cameras if you’re from Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Jupiter, Martin County, Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Port St Lucie, Stuart FL, Wellington, West Palm Beach.
There has been a lot of fuss around these cameras: some people claiming their right to privacy is violated, others saying that, by contrary, these cameras bring safety into their neighborhoods. To prove their point against CCTV, a lot of people vandalized the cameras. Illegally, of course.
CCTV vulnerability & improvements
The CCTVs and surveillance cameras in general are very vulnerable against vandalism. But this is not the only threat surveillance cameras have to survive: they are also vulnerable to dust or weather pressures.
This is why nowadays most CCTV cameras are dust-tight and pressure resistant; state of the art surveillance cameras can be so well-designed as to resist bullets or even explosions.
However, there is one area whose resistance cannot be improved, and that is the camera lens: vandals know that spraying substances can stain the camera lens up to the point when the image is impossible to read.
Surveillance cameras, an investment worth making
The truth is, CCTV and surveillance cameras often prove to be very useful, both for public and private use. And this is why more and more people install surveillance cameras at home.
If you too are thinking about making such an investment, make sure you take all the needed precautions: the surveillance cameras will keep your home safe from thieves, but in turn you have to make sure your cameras will resist thieves attempts at vandalism.
You can choose from wired or wireless surveillance cameras, but don’t forget to learn a thing or two about the integrated systems unit which allows you to connect to the cameras remotely.
