CCTV Accessories by SCK
Security Camera King offers a wide variety of security and CCTV accessories that potentially make any job easier than ever. CCTV is an acronym that stands for or closed-circuit television. CCTV is the combination of cameras, and recording devices such as Digital video Recorders and/or Network Video Recorders (DVRs and NVRS). NVRs use IP-based or ‘network’ cameras while DVRs can utilize digital over COAX-based cameras. CCTV is important for several reasons. The first being the ability to have evidence to prove fault in accidents or criminal activity. The second is to monitor events live, so personnel like guards can then react in real-time to something that may occur. Though not its primary purpose, CCTV also tends to act as a deterrent. This is because those whose intention is to commit criminal acts are often swayed from doing so should they see a CCTV system installed. CCTV is both a proactive and reactive security solution.
