Over the years, closed-circuit television (CCTV) has increased in popularity as it has helped individuals, businesses and organizations boost their security.
These video surveillance systems take a record of events as they unfold and give you a live feed of everything that occurred in your environment. One of the best things about CCTV cameras is that they can deliver clear images at night, though you will incur some extra power costs running them during the day and at night. To save power costs, you can opt for solar-powered CCTV cameras as they do not require power cables to operate, instead, they make use of energy from the sun.
