London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/25/2016 -- Recent reports have drawn attention to ongoing developments in CCTV systems; highlighting that it is a method of surveillance with ongoing potential to improve security,especially in public spaces. Just before Christmas, the rise of Facewatch CCTV in some High Street stores gained significant ground– the collaboration of sharing CCTV images of known criminals along with facial recognition software. These CCTV devices allow big businesses to potentially identify when a known shoplifter or criminal enters the store. The development is expected to have big implications for 2016: not only highlighting the importance of CCTV to business, but that it is also a technology which advances to protect people.
Until recent months, Facewatch was a system which just shared CCTV images between businesses. However, recent months have shown its development through CCTV cameras complete with facial recognition technology in order to take criminal detection up a level. This could be seen as part of a trend;surveillance technology on the rise as a method to both deter and detect crime.
The developed technology has increased business efforts to invest in CCTV – some opting just for the cameras alone whilst others investing directly in the Facewatch scheme – which has over 10,000 registered. The popularity of camera-based surveillance is clear and people are choosing to install them outside their homes too. Cricklewood Electronics had this to say:
"The growing numbers of businesses involved in Facewatch and similar schemes not only highlights CCTV as a key method of business security, but a way to forge communities committed to the elimination of crime. This can extend to homes too, and here at Cricklewood Electronics, we offer surveillance systems suitable for domestic properties also."
