What is it you are trying to do? – prevent theft, prevent vandalism…? The problem with surveillance is that if no one is monitoring the images 24/7, then you will only find out what happened after it has happened. It only takes a few seconds for someone to smash a vitrine , grab an object, and leave. Putting more effort into measures that make it difficult – and time-consuming – to get into cases, is more likely to prevent theft.
