Closed Circuit Television Cameras (CCTV) are used to monitor and record images of what takes place in specific locations in real time. The images collected are sent to a recording device (DVR/NVR) as digital information. The cameras can be fixed or set to scan an area or can be manually controlled by operators. The recorded information can be stored and/or reviewed by those who have access to the recordings at their convenience.

In addition to this, as technology moves forward, it has become possible to view/monitor this footage (live or recorded) over the internet or even on a mobile device.
