Surveillance equipment is no longer just the stuff of spy movies. Today, there are many surveillance products available to the general public that would make James Bond jealous. Telephone surveillance equipment can be purchased, which can tap and record telephone conversations. Computer surveillance devices can record key strokes as well as monitor internet and e-mail usage. The most popular form of surveillance equipment, however, pertains to video surveillance.

Video Surveillance Equipment

Video surveillance has become increasingly common in private and public settings. Video cameras have evolved from large, bulky items to being small enough to hold in your fingertips. Wireless surveillance cameras allow individuals to record video in almost any situation. Manufacturers are making surveillance cameras with night vision and infrared technology for use in low light, low visibility situations.

Many businesses use these capabilities to monitor customers and employees. Some services allow you to remotely monitor what's going on from any computer, no matter where you are, as long as you have a web connection. These services are usually subscription-based, but can offer a lot of freedom and peace of mind in return.

Wireless video transmitters allow individuals to transmit video signals to various receivers. There are some video transmitters that will transmit video directly to your television using an UHF signal. Powerful video transmitters can be used to transmit video signal through any type of wall except steel. Video transmitters use radio signals to transmit data and will typically require a license in order to be legally used.
