Cameras today have become very useful device in day to day life. A camera is used to click photographs and make video clips. These photographs and video clips can be seen or viewed any time by the user. They are like a memory elements. A normal human brain have tendency to keep things up to a certain period but after that periods the memories fades. So the cameras help a lot as a memory element that captures various moments.
The cameras were invented for these purposes but slowly engineers and scientists developed and updated with a new design. They made it efficient to be used for security purposes. The Surveillance cameras can be installed in any public, official or non official areas. Today the manpower has got such a big worth that it is not possible to hire security guards everywhere. These cameras have replaced the manual system to an automated system. They shoot the videos and photograph of the area in which they are installed and store them on a local memory device. Thus they keep a regular record of all the information. You can see them installed in public places like hospitals, railways, banks, and many more places.
