Since 2008, CCTV camera apps have been popular for allowing people to remotely view their CCTV system from a tablet or mobile device. Many security systems come with built-in features for remote viewing from anywhere in the world. This lets you know what is going on when you are not actually home. A CCTV with remote security control is a great tool and valuable for ensuring peace of mind.
Technical abilities will vary from one device to another; some security cameras will allow you to monitor what is going on in your home through either live or recorded video. Some cameras have alarms which can send notifications via the app when your phone is online or send automated emails when they detect activity. Some products are now offering two-way audio technology. Most security camera setups simply send you notifications when they detect any type of activity or movement, while others can identify who or what is causing the motion trigger, also offering face-recognition technology. These specialised units can zoom in on people who enter the field of view and send alerts when a face is recognised or when an unrecognised face is detected.
It is highly unlikely that you have never been recorded in public, either on a CCTV or in the distance on a TV article or news flash. Society, in general, has become more accepting of CCTV and the secure functionality it has to offer.
