Surveillance is becoming a need in any public or private area to cope up with increasing number of threats starting from burglary, robbery to terrorist activities. The conventional methods for monitoring are commonly confined to use of CCTV cameras or Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). This paper proposed an energy efficient smart surveillance system to exploit spatial correlation using the Visual Sensor Networks (VSNs) which reduces the energy consumption by reducing the amount of correlated data to be transmitted over the network. The end devices of the VSNs are cameras which deployed at the target area and keep the visual evidence of the movement with help of the camera.
