Video surveillance has been common in the United States since the 1990s; for example, one manufacturer reported net earnings of $120 million in 1995. With lower cost and easier installation, sales of home security cameras increased in the early 21st century. Following the September 11 attacks, the use of video surveillance in public places became more common to deter future terrorist attacks. Under the Homeland Security Grant Program, government grants are available for cities to install surveillance camera networks. In 2009, there were an estimated 15,000 CCTV systems in Chicago, many linked to an integrated camera network. New York City's Domain Awareness System has 6,000 video surveillance cameras linked together, there are over 4,000 cameras on the subway system although nearly half of them do not work, and two thirds of large apartment and commercial buildings use video surveillance cameras.

Wireless security plans also allow remote control of the system and general home automation. If home automation is your main appeal, check out our list of top systems with home automation features. When homeowners choose between wireless and hardwired home security, wireless is generally their top option. Several reasons are that wireless security is no longer expensive, it keeps walls clean, it’s low maintenance, and it can easily be reconfigured if needs should change. For example, you can easily add a video camera to a newborn’s room or rearrange motion sensors after home renovations. Another benefit is optional wireless environmental protection, which includes detectors for smoke, heat, carbon monoxide and/or moisture. Choosing wireless security also makes it easy to automate your home. Examples of home automation are controlling your lights, thermostat and door locks from your mobile phone. Home automation is convenient and easy, and wireless systems help you automate your home that much easier. Smart locks, programmable thermostats, cameras, and other automated home devices are by their very nature wireless, and most home security companies offer a home automation package with an app to remotely control everything on the system. That isn’t to say that you can’t have wired home automation, because you can, but automated equipment that is hardwired into your system is slower and harder to encrypt.
