But while that was the first recorded use in the United States in the now-conventional use of CCTV, the first CCTV camera was introduced decades earlier. In 1941, with WWII in full force, Siemens AG in Germany developed the first CCTV to observe rocket launches in the water.

However, by 2001, and partly as a result of the 9/11 attack, CCTVs became a key tool for fighting terrorism and more and more countries started to adopt the use of surveillance cameras.
