While Security systems provide protection, surveillance, records, and more, in some cases they can be used to confirm suspicions, and maintain a safe living environment. While hidden surveillance is mainly a precautionary tool, it can also be used in situations where danger is seemingly already present. Two college students in South Carolina used hidden cameras to catch their third roommate allegedly poisoning and tampering with their food.
The women relied on concealed cameras to document the illegal and dangerous acts after the accused roommate acted erratically. Surveillance systems can confirm suspicions and maintain a safe living environment. The footage collected immediately went to authorities as proof of malicious actions.
There is no doubt that hidden cameras provide peace of mind in general, but in many instances the technology can also provide, reveal, and confirm, lurking dangers, suspected or otherwise completely unknown.
