Security & CCTV Cameras

What Does CCTV Mean?

CCTV means closed-circuit television. It’s a TV system in which signals are not publicly distributed but are monitored. CCTV is often used for surveillance. The most common users of CCTV security and surveillance camera systems are for businesses, industry, schools, government, airports, casinos, hospitals, commercial operations, and banks. The more public access that is available, the more CCTV surveillance camera systems are typically utilized.

Example of a CCTV security camera

There are many benefits to employing a closed-circuit television security system (CCTV or Security Cameras) in your Milwaukee, WI facility. Many large buildings that have several nooks on the exterior utilize these outdoor security camera systems. This is due to the fact that there are several areas around the building in which a person could break in, or hide and attack an unsuspecting person. CCTV Cameras can be utilized so that people inside the building can see who is trying to enter and prevent access to someone they do not want on the property. These specialized surveillance cameras offer video surveillance and ensure the protection of the buildings. Make sure to consider CCTV cameras to protect the safety of your property, employees or customers, and your Milwaukee, WI business.

Types of CCTV Cameras

There are several types of CCTV cameras you can purchase for your business. 
  • Dome CCTV Cameras are most often used for indoor security and surveillance. They sit within a dome-shaped housing that is meant to create an unobtrusive but visible camera. 
  • Bullet CCTV Cameras are long, cylindrical, and tapered in shape - similar to a rifle bullet - and are most often used when you need long distance viewing. Bullet cameras can be used as an outdoor security camera.
  • C-Mount CCTV Cameras have detachable lenses and are therefore great for various applications.
  • Network/IP CCTV Cameras can be either hardwired or wireless and are designed to transmit images over the internet utilizing compressed bandwidth to avoid overwhelming your network.

Security Camera Systems & CCTV in Milwaukee, WI

CCTV security camera

CCTV cameras are generally placed throughout all active public areas such as waiting rooms, hallways, entrances and parking lots. These surveillance camera systems are used not only to prevent criminal activity, but should something occur there is a greater chance that the perpetrator can be caught on video to assist police in finding that person. CCTV recorder options make for a great small business security camera system.

CCTV security systems are designed to operate continuously and they can be as simple or complicated as you wish. Either way, you will be able to protect your facility and monitor activity in and around it.  S–O–S Electronics provides CCTV recorders, Security Cameras, Access Control and other solutions for all types of Milwaukee, WI businesses, organizations, or government facilities.


Why Install CCTV Cameras

This system is an effective way to protect your property, employees, students, and anything else that may be captured within the sightline of the security cameras. The presence of this system alone can deter criminal activity, as it increases the possibility of the criminal being apprehended. Even if the criminal decides to act, the surveillance camera provides an "eye in the sky" to capture the perpetrator and their deeds. This feature allows you to watch everything that happened, in the moment it occurred. With a CCTV recorder, the need for an eyewitness is diminished, and there is a first-hand, recorded, bonafide accurate account of what actually happened.
