Another disadvantage is that they can be expensive. Proper cameras usually cost hundreds, even thousands, of pounds depending on the features and number of cameras bought. Having them installed and regularly maintained is added cost on top. Amateurly installing cameras could risk a later fault and extra expense.

With technology advancing every day, it may be easy for a criminal to hack into the cameras and disconnect them, even manually.
