Building A Home Business From Your Own Creativity

unleash-creativityThe advent of technology into modern day life has led to a lot of opportunities for businesses that can be safely conducted from the comfortable environs of a home.

Previously, starting any business meant that you had to acquire premises, decide on products to make, spend capital on putting up machinery, hiring staff and find avenues to market your products.

Technologies, like the internet, have turned these outdated ideas on their head, and now allow a person who is sufficiently entrepreneurial to start a home business without any need for too much of finance or other outlay.

A Creative Use of CCTV – Making CCTV Even More Utilitarian Than it Already Is

cameraThese days, it can really amaze me just how innovative people can be. You would really be surprised with just how smart people are these days, and how resourceful people have become.

You’ll be able to see just how they have been able to come up with all sorts of solutions or methods to make whatever they have to do or go through a) more convenient, b) easier and c) more cost effective.

Competition breeds this kind of innovation and smarts, and it really does help that there are so many innovators in the world these days that people simply cannot help trying harder in order to reinvent the wheel–or at least just to upgrade it (after all, why should you fix something when it isn’t broken?).

I’m talking about this because right now, I’ve come to realise just how people have decided to find new uses for our beloved CCTV (closed circuit television). I came to this realisation because in the past week, I’ve had a terrible, terrible drain blockage that really messed up my plumbing and made it incredibly difficult for water to drain out.

It was starting to get moldy because my floor always had a puddle of water on it. And of course, I cannot tolerate that.. So I called someone. And then I saw them use something that really made an impression on me.

Want to find out what it was that impressed me? Well… They were doing drain cctv inspections.

cam, CCTVWhat are those?
Well, these inspections are, simply put, the best way to inspect your drains and pipes, whether you are doing it in order to fix a blockage that already currently exists, or to prevent one from happening in the future.

It is now a technique or method that is employed by many–and they will all agree that it makes their job so much easier. Why exactly does it do that and why is it the best? Well…

Why is it the best?
Simply put, it’s the best method for doing the drainage inspections because it’s much more cost effective than just about any other method there is out there… And not only that, it also happens to be the safest way to do the inspections.

Plus since the cameras are able to get into the tiniest nooks and crannies, the inspections will always be incredibly thorough, so any service work done afterwards will be thorough as well.

CCTV Drainage Survey

How is it done?
As simple as it sounds, the equipment for this is actually quite complicated. There are special camera systems that are actually remote controlled that they use for this.

The cameras are also attached to a van in which a technician can survey the video feed to see where the the issues lie. They can even burn the results for you on DVD, where you can review the data and videos for yourself.
