With all of the concerns about security in modern society, surveillance cameras are often a proposed solution. While surveillance systems can be extremely useful, these technological eyes do have some drawbacks as well.
Surveillance camera systems can be expensive. The camera itself is only a part of the cost, and it may even be a reasonable cost if you buy a lower-end model. But you also must pay to store what the camera views (tapes, CD’s or a computer dedicated to the camera), and you will need software upgrades, parts repairs and other ongoing expenses.
