As a homeowner, this may or may not be an ideal solution, but for businesses this virtually essential. For instance, a retail store can catch a shoplifter red handed. The technology used for businesses is often different than for residential use. Usually homeowners will only look at video recordings post event. However, some CCTV technologies are designed to alert homeowners using motion detection.
