When Was CCTV Invented?

CCTV CostsThe first CTV system was invented in in 1942 during World War Two. Walter Bruch, a German engineer wanted to be able to monitor V2 rocket launches and hence designed the world’s first CCTV system, enabling him to watch the rocket launch from a different location.

However, this was not the full CCTV system as we know it today as there was no way to record a video feed. It was not until 20 years later when Marie Van Brittan Brown in the USA utilised the technology and applied it to  a security setting alongside a way of recording footage. This was the world’s first CCTV security system and she and her husband installed the first one in their home. It is thanks to both Walter Bruch and Marie Van Brittan Brown that many of our homes and businesses are protected against burglars by the wonders of CCTV.
