Video surveillance for condominium


According to Wikipedia: A condominium is a type of living space similar to an apartment but independently sellable and therefore regarded as real estate. The condominium building structure is divided into several units that are each separately owned, surrounded by common areas that are jointly owned. Condominiums are a type of common-interest development (CID). Similar concepts in other English-speaking countries include strata title in Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, and the Canadian province of British Columbia; commonhold in England and Wales; and sectional title in South Africa.

A condominium, more commonly known as a condo, is a property complex. And as any private territory, it often requires video surveillance to keep the perimeter safe.

In order to do that a multifunctional and reliable video surveillance software is required. In this article we’ll review cctv software Xeoma that will be perfect for condominium video surveillance.
