Writing Task 2: Responding to Survey Questions

Read the following information.

Hostel management has decided to upgrade the security in and around the campus. The management has sent out an opinion survey to see what residents would like to have as new security measure.

You are residing in a College hostel :

Option A: New HD Night Vision Cameras covering the area around the hostel.
Option B: Installing biometric locks on the doors.

To whom it may concern I second your suggestion of installing HD night vision cameras over biometric door locks mainly due to 2 reasons. Firstly, I believe it will cover a large area, and secondly, they are more economical. While on the other hand, biometrics are much expensive and will safeguard only the indoors and not the outdoor area. The CCTV cameras will cover the hallways and the nearby campus area, which is much advantageous for students. This is because many people stroll outside the hostel at night, and these cameras will ensure their safety. Moreover, it does not require to pay extra for manual labour, and they come with a warranty of many years which makes them more economically fit. Although the biometric will also ensure security, the installation cost is way more than a security camera. Furthermore, this upgrade in security will only secure the inside area of the hostel, which can be perilous, as many crimes in the past have occurred just outside the main entry door. I hope to clarify the benefits of HD night vision cameras, which cannot be attained from a biometric door system. Regards Tony
