How does a security camera function?
Security cameras are commonly known as CCTV or closed circuit television. The signal which is transmitted is from point to point or through wireless links. It broadcasts the image or a live feed of the area being monitored to an operator sitting at a location which might be some distance away from the camera. The monitor can rotate according to the will of the operator or stay still and focus on a particular point depending on the requirements of the situation.
The history of the security camera
CCTV was first designed and put into use by Walter Bruch to monitor the launch of rockets. Since then, the use of CCTV at launch sites has been common. Its use then spread to banks and superstores to deter potential thieves. These days, the use of security cameras is widespread.
