Think remote monitoring of your CCTV is too expensive? Think again!
Historically remote CCTV monitoring was considered a prohibitively expensive option due to the hardware, transmission and annual costs involved, however with new technology and high speed broadband, remote monitoring has become a much more affordable option and a viable choice for any customer of any size.
How does it work?
It works by movement detectors or advanced video analytics pushing an alarm out to our 24 hour RVRC, the integrated cameras and motion sensors detect any movement outside. If an alarm / detector is triggered, images from an associated camera are transmitted to our Remote Video Response Centre. If the images indicate a problem, our SIA trained operators will manage the incident, if necessary, our operators will alert the emergency services who will provide a priority response as the incident has been visually confirmed.
What are the benefits of CCTV monitoring?
Instead of detecting crime after it has happened, you can stop criminals before they attack – reducing losses, cutting downtime and minimising insurance claims. The move to remote monitoring consistently delivers higher levels of security and by working with a remote monitoring station with BS8418 compliance, you will get a priority Police response.
Will it work for me?
In a nutshell – yes! The loss incurred through a break in is quite often more than just loss of stock. With the additional cost of physical damage and loss of trading time can you afford to wait until the intruder has enter the building to raise the alarm? With externally monitored CCTV you can sleep easy knowing VRC are watching over you and your business, stopping crime before the damage is done.
Wait, there’s more!
Why just monitor your external CCTV? By integrating your internal CCTV system with your intruder alarm we can visually verify intruder alarm activations! Not only does that allow us to confirm to the Police that the alarm activation is genuine it allows us to keep the police updated as the incident unfolds, advising them exactly where the intruders are, what they are wearing and how many of them there!
Having trouble with false alarms leading to your Police response being withdrawn? With Visual Verification of your intruder alarm we can reduce the risk to your business of having a Police URN withdrawn due to false alarms.
Worried about your staffs safety? We can also visually verify panic alarms! If you have a microphone and speaker system on site we can not only listen to what’s happening we can also talk to persons on site to ensure they know they are being watched and give staff peace of mind.
DVR stolen during a break-in? Any evidential footage you had is gone. Wrong! Where CCTV footage has been transmitted to us during an incident this will be stored securely on our servers and you can access this at any time through our secure webportal.
