Many property owners have begun hiring remote security monitoring services to ensure the safety and security of their property, assets, and people. Remote video monitoring provides innovative benefits while remaining surprisingly affordable when compared to other security services.
Successful property owners understand that peace of mind is an important investment in an uncertain world we live in. Using the latest surveillance technology and software, remote video monitoring companies can stay vigilant over every corner of a property twenty-four hours a day.
Unlike physical security guards or unmanned security cameras, remote security guards are able to monitor every corner of a property and detect suspicious activity the moment it occurs. In fact, the services that remote monitoring companies offer can make traditional security measures like physical security guards virtually obsolete.
Below are some of the advantages of remote monitoring services and how they effectively keep a property secure. If you have any further questions or would like to learn more, please contact Digital Security Guard today.
How Remote Security Monitoring Services Work
A remote security monitoring service employs a large team of security and surveillance experts. These experts can access the video feeds of each security camera present in a property and monitor them twenty-four hours a day from an off-site facility.
They can coordinate with security personnel at the property and monitor the video feeds for any suspicious activity using video analytics and intelligent software. When suspicious activity is detected, there are multiple options available to the security expert.
In the event that suspicious activity poses a threat to a property, the security expert can identify the issue and determine an appropriate response. For example, if an intruder is detected on the premises, the security expert can use built-in microphones in the security cameras to call out to the intruder.
Simultaneously, personnel on the property can be quickly alerted of the presence of the intruder. Local law enforcement can also quickly be contacted, improving response times.
Remote Guards Are More Effective Than Physical Guards
Since time immemorial, security guards have been used to protect the premises of a property. Until recently, security guards were the most effective way of monitoring every corner of a property.
With new advancements and innovations in surveillance camera technology, physical security guards are quickly becoming obsolete. Unlike the experts in a remote surveillance company, on-site security guards cannot effectively monitor every corner of a property.
Security cameras can produce video images in low light settings much more effectively than the human eye. Despite the innovative technology and twenty-four-hour peace of mind, a remote monitoring service is much more affordable than hiring security guards.
Many properties will incorporate security guards and remote monitoring in conjunction and create a truly effective, proactive security plan. Remote monitoring companies can also drastically reduce the number of false alarms and improve response times.
By maintaining a close working relationship with local law enforcement, response times by emergency services are maximized.
