CCTV (closed-circuit television) is a TV system in which signals, through the use of videos cameras, are monitored in the interior and exterior of a property and are used for various purposes, primarily for security.
Its use is not confined to closed or private places, but the CCTV is used as a security system extending to public and crowded places like malls, traffic intersections, etc.
Older models of CCTV systems used monitors which were small and low resolution black and white with no interactive capabilities while the Modern CCTV system use monitors which display color, high resolution and includes the ability to zoom in on an image or track anything among their features.
An alarm system, however, alerts the owner of the property immediately when his property is unattended and invaded by thieves. An alarm system is a smart device which is easy to learn; it notifies you when your property is under attack while you are away or asleep.
