Loopholes To Get Around Licensing?

Many have moved from labelling security systems as just "security", and are promoting the benefits of having overall situational awareness and monitoring of your work place or home environment. But could this be use as a "loophole" for unlicensed installers to install video and other traditional security systems, since most states require a license to install security systems. But do you need a license to install, say for instance, a video system for someone who claims they just want to monitor workplace safety and productivity, and supposedly not for security?

Could I, as an unlicensed installer, install a video system legally as long as I don't put anywhere on the paperwork it's a security system, but instead label it something like "Supervisory monitoring tool"?
