Some of the benefits of cameras are the ability for some semblance of omniscience. As we get older, we
become forgetful. Playing back the day's feed can aid
in delaying an early elderly breakdown.
There are myriads of types of cameras to choose from.
Usually some of the best cameras will have other features such as PTZ,
allowing a user to PAN, TILT, or ZOOM out/in with either a joystick or mouse.
Below are seen two types of cameras incorporated into the building
I generally hobby in. The first type is a night-vision camera
indicated by the IR's (infrared) which surround the actual lense. However the camera to the right
offers the ability to manually focus on a particular point. Focusing
into a spot, such as on the wall, also allows for the increased
fine-tuning of the alarm or other function when the field is tripped.
These cameras are also great for zooming to a point in the driveway
where all that can be seen are stones and concrete up close and personal, until an automobile
arrives, then it's 32 frames of a license plate.

DVR's allow the privilege to play back a fast-moving fox,
something I had never seen before in the neighborhood.
Without cameras I'd not know of the family of possums that is no longer
around. I no longer see the raccoon family either, without
cameras I'd never even know there were ever any out there.
Having cameras allowed my being able to see a feral cat, possum, and
raccon all on the porch at the same time! None appeared to
want to fight, although at one point the possum opened it's big mouth
wide to show the unimpressed raccoon his pearly whites.
I first began installing security systems about a decade or so ago, I realized the importance to also have audio recording at all times also. The
notion was to curtail any communications errors with my
customers. If I cannot remember something, I simply
play it back even if it were a week or month ago.
Cameras put to rest conjecturing.
Cameras allow for the editing or creating of one's own videos.
