5 Things You Need to Know About Remote Surveillance
Professional guards know exactly what to look for and when to act.
Have you ever ignored something suspicious only to regret it soon after? Or maybe your second-guessing led to some stolen property you have no way of recovering. Suspicious things happen all the time. Professional security guards are trained to not only know what to look for but what the best action is to take once something does catch their eye. This decisive action and close collaboration with local authorities ensure faster response times. And there are even steps to take to deter the suspect from acting on their intentions completely.
Much cheaper than a physical security guard.
Traditional security plans use a physically stationed team of security guards. These virtual guards are restricted to a confined space and can be very costly. Remote surveillance saves you money short term since remote video monitoring costs a fraction of these security guard teams. It will also save you money long term by providing you with added asset protection and an increased likelihood of recovery (should someone get away).
Easily incorporated into current security strategies.
Do you already have a security team on-site? Digital security guards work well with others. Not only do you get a combined force, but you also get added expertise. By collaborating with your onsite team, these remote monitors can tell them where to go to catch a criminal before they escape.
One remote guard can do the same work as multiple on-site security guards.
Because of the remote accessibility, one guard can view multiple monitors at once. What is more interesting is the added features of motion detection, tripwire, intrusion, missing object, and other smart and intelligent options.
24/7 security notifications, even during power outages.
Due to our advanced security equipment, something as small as a power spike or shortage will immediately notify our guards. This means that in the event someone tries to tamper with your system or the power fails in your area, you are still protected. A guard will immediately notify a response team to show up directly as the flagged spot within minutes.
