What is remote CCTV monitoring?
CCTV cameras are a powerful tool to deter illegal activity. It ensures that your premises are being watched in real-time by professional security monitoring staff. This is especially beneficial for when your home or business is unoccupied or in a vulnerable state. The real advantage of detecting a threat while it’s in progress is the action that can be taken to deal with it, such as notifying your keyholders or alerting the police.
How does remote CCTV monitoring work?
CCTV monitoring works by sending the video data the camera picks up to our 24-hour control room. This is manned by Security Industry Authority (SIA) licenced officers who can undertake a range of responses to deal with the situation. All of these activities are either programmed on a schedule or are driven by an alarm, making it a very productive and cost-effective solution.
Is CCTV monitoring expensive compared to having a security guard who is actually there on my site?
CCTV monitoring is a highly cost effective alternative to static guarding, particularly when paired up with a keyholding and alarm response service. Typically it is cheaper that engaging a full time security guard. It is also worth noting that if you already have CCTV installed it can probably still be monitored, again keeping costs down.
