Common uses of video surveillance include sports events, public transportation and retail stores, warehouses, junkyards etc….
In addition, many small businesses throughout the globe benefit from adding video surveillance. According to the Municipal Technical Advisory Service the effectiveness of security cameras depends on a number of different factors. Some of these factors are:

- The more cameras in an area, the more chance of reducing crimes
- CCTV is effective in “car parks”
One of the most important factors to consider when implementing video surveillance is the quality of the footage. Purchasing cameras with high quality lenses and positioning them in appropriate locations leads to much better results. Common camera locations include:
