Surveillance cameras can solve mild to severe crimes. Over the past decade, YouTube has become full-to-overflowing with compilations of people falling over caught on CCTV.
However, CCTV systems are very practical. In the past they’ve been created for practical reasons, for example, in 1942, German engineer Walter Bruch designed CCTV technology to monitor V-2 rockets.
In the 60s Marie Van Brittan, an African American nurse from New York created the first closed-circuit television security system and paved the way for modern home security systems.
The African American woman invented different types of CCTV cameras aimed to optimize home safety in her area.

What else is on the Market?
On the market, two wireless doorbells are fighting for the top spot.
American-based security provider, Ring is a subsidiary of Amazon and they sell a similar doorbell to the Ezviz wireless doorbell. Although there are a few differences, for example, the Ezviz doorbell comes with two storage options including using an SD card and cloud storage (with a monthly storage fee.) This allows the user to reuse the SD card multiple times.
