A video surveillance system is composed of a system of cameras, monitors/display units, and recorders. Cameras may be either analog or digital with a host of possible design features. These systems can be applied to both interior and exterior areas of a building or property. They can operate 24/7, can be designed to only record in response to movement, or set to record during specific times of the day. With the advancements in todays technology, these systems have the capabilities of providing analytics such as people counting, license plate capturing, object tracking, and much more. The cameras may be conspicuous and out in the open to deter crime, or they can be more hidden and discreet to record evidence with fewer chances of being tampered with. Footage can be monitored live by a individual, monitored remotely if using an IP camera and system by a monitoring company, or can simply be recorded and stored by a DVR (digital video recorder) or NVR (network video recorder) for review later should the need arise. Finally, video surveillance systems are closed – this means its signals are not broadcast so that others could intercept and view the content. Only authorized users have the credentials to access and view content.
