the costs and the future

how we calculated these costs

We calculated our costs by pricing the camera the same as 2017's top-selling security camera, the $479.99 Netgear Arlo Pro 2. Then, we researched the cost for a fMRI machine, a technique for measuring and mapping brain and neutral activity in a non-invasive, safe way. This scanner ranges from around $500,000 to $3,000,000. However, as the global electronic security system market continues to grow, the prices are expected to decrease.

Also, depending on the settings of the scanner (high-security, small business, etc.), the depth of analysis will vary. For example, high-security environments (large companies, airports, etc.) would have more thorough scanners while smaller businesses would have less in-depth scanners.
