Can I install a CCTV hard drive on my desktop?

Hi everyone, I was planning to buy the WD CCTV purple hard drive and install it in my desktop. Is that doable? I'm currently using my WD Black Hard Drive (Main Storage for everything) and I've researched about the difference between the desktop for storage hd and the surveillance hd  and found out that it's bad to use the desktop hd for surveillance purposes. I connected my CCTVs using ispyconnect. I would like to hear some recommendations. Thank you!

Yeah it's kinda the exact same drive but marketed differently. Also, it's not bad for the drive at all, people have been using "normal" drives for CCTV boxes since those exist and nothing has ever happened. All drives will eventually fail, the rest is cheap marketing and scaremongering.
