CCTVs have become a common piece of tech in this generation. With growing needs of security, as every generation has its own needs and requirements, CCTV offers a peace of mind to people at home and even to store owners who don’t want their items to be stolen. CCTV stands for closed-circuit television, commonly known as the tech needed for video surveillance.

The cameras used for surveillance can be wired or wireless. As it is a closer-circuit surveillance, no one other than the person who sets up the rig is allowed to view the footage.

The cameras can be connected to a desktop, something that is usually done; however, with phones and tablets turning powerful, wireless cameras can also be connected to a phone or a tablet.

CCTV cameras are now also available as standalone pieces, meaning there would be no compulsion of connecting the camera to a PC. The cameras come with a slot for SD-card, most of them support storage of upto 128 GB which is usually more than enough for days of recording. Also, popular these days is cameras with cloud storage, they are connected to the WiFi network and the whole footage is uploaded to the cloud; the user can monitor the footage from anywhere in the world on the internet.

CCTV For Home in Dubai will be going an extra mile when it comes to monitoring the footage in the future. The Dubai police is planning to link the cameras with the control room (operations room) under a new home safety programme.

The first phase of the plan is to integrate the already installed CCTV cameras in villas to the operation room, so that, when the residents go out for a tour or on a long vacation, the police could be notified in advance and after their leaving, the police will be monitoring the footage.
