Video surveillance cameras are an important and increasingly helpful tool for homeowners as well as commercial establishments. Luckily, according to a story recently published on www.syracuse.com, there are some dedicated and skillful neighbors who are installing security cameras for free in order for the cost to be practical for low income residents who cannot afford to have them professionally installed.
The Syracuse Police Department has itself installed over 40 surveillance cameras since 2011, but, at a cost of $10,000 per camera, the technology unfortunately has not been able to extend into many neighborhoods that have requested one.
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) usually applies to surveillance cameras that transmit signals to a limited number of monitors at a specific place.
Resident Bob Korzuch says that monitoring these cameras can even be done on one’s smart phone while you are away from home, and he also uses a smart phone app to check the security camera of an elderly neighbor.
Paragon Security NYC offers a wide array of security and surveillance cameras for residential and commercial establishments and would be happy to discuss with you what your particular requirements are.
