What does a remotely monitored system achieve?
Our remotely monitored CCTV solutions act as an active deterrent, allowing immediate action to be taken and preventing or reducing damage or loss of property. CCTV footage that isn’t remotely monitored is great for providing evidence once the damage has been done, however, a monitored system can help prevent it entirely.
- Your CCTV system is connected via your internet to our secure monitoring station, sending images from your CCTV cameras directly to our security monitoring personnel.
- The footage can be monitored 24/7 during selected hours, or alternatively an arming station can be supplied to activate the CCTV when the site is locked.
- Our smart security systems inform the monitoring station in the event of an alarm being activated. To provide the best view possible, cameras are then zoomed in or an alternative viewpoint is selected.
- Our security then manually monitor the CCTV footage, looking at recent recordings as well as live footage to properly assess the situation.
If a risk is identified by our remote monitoring centre, we react to manage the situation by either:
- Communicating directly with the intruders via an inbuilt tannoy system.
- Informing keyholders.
- Contacting the police and other emergency services.
Normally, intruders are deterred by the tannoy system and the realisation that they have been detected, but in the event that they aren’t, our team is in a position to ensure the emergency services can act accordingly to minimise the risk during an incident.
