If you’re interested in remote video surveillance security solutions, you’re one of many forward-thinking companies. Remote guarding, also known as remote video monitoring, is an innovative combination of security systems, software, processes, and staff to leverage technological advancements to effectively secure a property.
Why Consider Remote Video Surveillance Security?
Instead of using live security guards, who are often ineffective and costly, remote guarding utilizes remote security guards to manage live events via security camera system installations in each facility they are protecting. The on-site elements of the system include intelligent video analytics for motion, human, and vehicle detection.
Together, these combined resources turn advanced surveillance cameras and CCTV systems into digital guards that detect potentially dangerous activities or individuals as soon as they enter the premises.
The proven success of remote video surveillance security is based on having professionally trained security personnel operating from an advanced, prepared central command center. There, remote guards use highly automated tools, preventative measures, and standardized response procedures, all optimized to maximize site security.
The Benefits of Remote Guarding
Remote video surveillance guarding provides impressive advantages compared to other traditional security approaches, such as analog CCTV systems and hiring on-site security officers. Some of these include:
Loss and Crime Prevention
Remote security guards provide crime and loss prevention through remote, real-time, live event command, control, and management at centralized facilities. This digital guarding system detects intruders and supports direct communication, informing potential criminals that their activities are being observed and recorded in order to deter or prevent crime from happening.
Cost Saving Efficiency
As a business owner, maximizing profits and minimizing expenses is always to your advantage. The combination of advanced technology, software, processes, and staff significantly reduces security costs. Remote security guards do not sleep, take breaks, or make deals with criminals and are all-around more cost-effective than on-site guards.
Benefits Beyond Security
Remote video surveillance security is also effective at protecting an establishment against potential liability claims made by employees or customers. With access to user-friendly video management software and high-definition camera footage, you can quickly locate and use video evidence to address false claims and accusations.
Faster Response Times
Emergency responders and law enforcement are generally only called when security guards are able to report as a live witness to a crime or other events in progress. Remote guards use their expertise to assist law enforcement once an event occurs and throughout its duration (including live, real-time relay of situational information such as intruder descriptions, location, movements, and presence of weapons) to dramatically increase emergency response times.
