With the advancement of technology day by day, the most two crucial words in our lives i.e privacy and security don't go hand in hand anymore. If you want security in your life then you have to compromise with your privacy and if you want to hold on to your privacy then you have to give up security. Now before talking about the pros and cons of surveillance systems which are in current use, let me just break down the different types of surveillance systems that are currently in use.

1) Outdoor video surveillance system

This kind of surveillance system mainly deals with the talking of outdoor video footage.

The public surveillance camera is a great example of such a surveillance system.
