CCTV Industry history
At an ancient time when CCTV Industry was not there, people hire a guard to monitor but it was an impossible task to monitor every second. human monitoring failed where the environment was not suitable for human, like in a lab, or in a small cave. So a requirement comes into existence and takes a shape of CCTV monitoring system.

The most important thing about this industry is that each and every person needs it in a simple word you can say that people want to be the secure and first step of security is CCTV. CCTV is not only a solution of security but it also provides a way to watch the things at the remote location.

The first CCTV surveillance system was developed by a German engineer Walter Bruch in 1942 to monitor a launching of the V2 rocket.
Walter Bruch was also the inventor of colour television. At that time it was very unreliable and expensive process.
