What is a Smart CCTV system?

A smart CCTV system is a type of surveillance camera that can be controlled and monitored using a smartphone or tablet. It usually comes with a mobile app that allows you to view the live feed from the camera and other features such as motion detection, night vision, and two-way audio.

There are many benefits of having a smart home CCTV system installed in your home. Firstly, knowing that your home is being monitored even when you’re not there offers peace of mind. Secondly, it can act as a deterrent to burglars and trespassers. Thirdly, it gives you the ability to check on your home from anywhere in the world. And fourthly, it’s a lot more affordable than traditional CCTV systems.
