How Does Remote Video Monitoring Work?

Remote video monitoring is a service that many organizations contemplate, but few truly understand until they see it in action. If you’re a business owner concerned about loss prevention and property crime, it’s time you found out what remote video monitoring can do for your security.

Stop Thieves, Vandals and Loiterers

If you’re a business in a prime area of town, you may also be a prime target for criminal activity. With remote video monitoring, you have crime prevention technology on your side. The service acts like a remote patrol, touring the property on a scheduled basis just like a live security guard would.

With a voice-down capability, the remote video monitoring guard can communicate through a speaker to let trespassers know they’re being watched and police are on their way. Normally, this sends them running and word quickly spreads that your property is no place for mischief or crime.

Support the Live Security Force

Even if you employ the most professional security guards, they simply can’t be in two places at once. With remote video monitoring, your guards can remain at their posts with the assurance that all points of the property are being watched closely. As the client, you can choose what types of security events call for voice-down warnings, alarm activations and onsite security notifications. The intelligent software communicates with the central station when a security event takes place, and an alert is triggered right away. Your security guards should still go to the site of the event – but because of the support remote video monitoring provides, they no longer need to have eyes in every direction.

Make Your Security Budget Manageable

For many business owners, hiring security guards isn’t in the budget. With remote video monitoring, you can spend a fraction of the amount you would spend on staffing a live security force. For businesses that need to closely manage the bottom line, remote video monitoring can make sound financial sense. To make it even more manageable, some clients opt to use the service afterhours only. Depending on the type of business you run and its location, there are different timeslots to consider utilizing this service.
