In the Washington D. C. area, there are more than 30,000 surveillance cameras in schools, and the Metro has nearly 6,000 cameras in use across the system. The Cheshire figure is regarded as more dependable than a previous study by Michael McCahill and Clive Norris of UrbanEye published in 2002. Based on a small sample in Putney High Street, McCahill and Norris extrapolated the number of surveillance cameras in Greater London to be around 500,000 and the total number of cameras in the UK to be around 4,200,000. According to their estimate the UK has one camera for every 14 people.

And, they give you a 10% discount if you pay for a year’s monitoring in advance. So there’s an upfront cost for the equipment, but it’s a DIY installation. Here are some of the Scout pros and cons. The Scout system works with Alexa, Google Home, Nest, IFTTT, and can be voice controlled, or by using the mobile app. The Scout hub also comes with ZigBee and Z Wave as well. However, Scout isn’t as user friendly as some because you have to use their app for control. The Scout system doesn’t come with a control panel/keypad. You can buy their basic packages, then add on to them as needed. However, if you want to use the automation features, including the app, you will have to pay a monthly subscription fee. If you don’t, you’ll only get the basic package and the web based self monitoring option, which is almost useless without the app. But, the Scout system is suitable for renters and homeowners alike because it’s portable.

When movement is detected, you will receive notification to alert you of suspicious activity, which allows you to more closely monitor the situation remotely. However, some home security cameras can differentiate between what or who is being targeted for activity – an animal, a car, or a person. Even still, some super smart home security cameras are delving into face recognition technology, involving an automatic zoom in on the people within the field of view and a notification of recognition or unrecognition sent.
