Not surprisingly, with the increase in demand comes an increase in new products, with manufacturers offer custom systems to meet the needs of individual clients.
The popularity of CCTV systems can be attributed to the fact that is fairly inexpensive when you compare it to other security system. That it is easy to install is also another factor. While it is true that sometimes you need a professional to install it, most of the time it is actually easy to do it yourself. As a matter of fact, a CCTV system is actually much easier to install than a home theater system, and easier to operate too.
However, the main reason why most people prefer CCTV systems is the fact that it’s not easy to manipulate.
