Reviews of the First Alert SCO501CN 3ST are mostly strong. It receives a recommendation from Consumer Reports for its performance as a CO detector, but only a middling rating as a smoke detector as it only has photoelectric sensors for that function once again, Consumer Reports only recommends smoke detectors with both types of sensors, though not all experts agree that those types of alarms are the best option. Still, the SC501CN's performance earns the highest possible grade both when it comes to smoldering fires, and as a CO detector. It receives top ratings across the board for detecting high concentrations of CO, low concentrations of CO and the quality of its alerts. The Kidde KN COSM BA Est. $35 is also worth considering. This combination smoke and CO alarm has been around for a number of years, and was previously known as the Kidde KN COSM B. It has two key differences compared to the SCO501CN 3ST: It is a stand alone detector that does not communicate with other alarms and the smoke detector uses ionization, not photoelectric technology. It has a voice annunciator that will identify the type of hazard fire or CO, but can't relay that to other detectors. It's not been professionally reviewed, but there's a large body of mostly satisfied users that post feedback at Amazon, where its overall score is 4. 4 stars following around 1,750 reviews.

Though almost all video cameras fit this definition, the term is most often applied to those used for surveillance in areas that may need monitoring such as banks, stores, and other areas where security is needed. Though Videotelephony is seldom called 'CCTV' one exception is the use of video in distance education, where it is an important tool. In industrial plants, CCTV equipment may be used to observe parts of a process from a central control room, for example when the environment is not suitable for humans. CCTV systems may operate continuously or only as required to monitor a particular event. A more advanced form of CCTV, utilizing digital video recorders DVRs, provides recording for possibly many years, with a variety of quality and performance options and extra features such as motion detection and email alerts. More recently, decentralized IP cameras, perhaps equipped with megapixel sensors, support recording directly to network attached storage devices, or internal flash for completely stand alone operation. The earliest video surveillance systems involved constant monitoring because there was no way to record and store information. The development of reel to reel media enabled the recording of surveillance footage. These systems required magnetic tapes to be changed manually, which was a time consuming, expensive and unreliable process, with the operator having to manually thread the tape from the tape reel through the recorder onto an empty take up reel. Due to these shortcomings, video surveillance was not widespread. VCR technology became available in the 1970s, making it easier to record and erase information, and the use of video surveillance became more common.
