A Remote Monitored CCTV System is a pro-active system specifically designed to potentially prevent theft or damage to property before any serious criminal act can be perpetrated. Using cameras with intelligent intrusion detection, or standard detection devices strategically positioned around the protected area, any Intruders are quickly detected and a live picture immediately transmitted to experienced operators at a Remote Monitoring Station, who can then assess what is happening on site. All systems are installed and certificated to NCP104 or BS8418.

10 COMMON SECURITY PROBLEMS THAT ARE SOLVEd WITH REMOTE VIDEO MONITORING
Attacks and Hold-ups on vulnerable staff and lack of protection for lone workers
Staff fraud and theft
Vandalism and Graffiti
Threats to critical infrastructure
Workplace Health & Safety compliance
Construction site theft
Security Guards are a traditional response to problem situations but are not a guarantee of security
High and ongoing monthly costs make them an expensive solution
High guard turnover causes inconsistent performance
Guards can intimidate workers and deter customers
A security guard is unlikely to be in the right place at the right time to prevent employee fraud
When an offender is detained by a guard the case is often, ‘his word against mine’ – not a strong case in a court of law
What you need is a solution that prevents a problem from occurring, thus maximising business continuity and profitability
disruption to business
Security issues can disrupt business in dramatic fashion
One-off incidents are bad enough but persistent problems can bring an organisation to its knees
Threats to staff result in absenteeism and high staff turn over
Temporary closure of a business can deprive retailers of a sale and lose valued and profitable customers
Trains out of action due to vandalism cause delays and inconvenience to passengers
Graffiti on walls portrays an unprofessional image and discourages new customers
Employee theft reduces profitability
What you need is a solution that is cost-effective, vigilant yet not intrusive, works 24×7 – and can be provided as authoritative proof in court.
HIGH FALSE ALARM RATE
Whether protecting staff and stock in a retail outlet, railway carriages in a holding yard, employees in a court building, tools and materials on a construction site, teachers in a school, or critical machinery in a utility – when a critical incident occurs, you and your Insurers must be secure in the knowledge that the police will attend
Police do not want to deal with false alarms – they are time wasting and expensive
To maximise time spent on genuine incidents, police may charge companies for wasted time, or even refuse attendance after a series of false alarms
What you need is a solution that meets auditable standards and guarantees police response.
An important feature of a Monitored CCTV system is a live audio feed from the Remote Monitoring Station to the site, allowing the operator to communicate directly with any potential Intruder on site. In most cases a live audio warning informing an Intruder they are being actively monitored and recorded, and that the Police may be called, will be sufficient to deter any further criminal activity.
In the event of persistent Intruders who are not deterred by the audio warnings, the Remote Monitoring Station will inform your designated response contacts, (i.e. Keyholders or Security company) that there is a genuine Intrusion on site. Security can then be dispatched and, if appropriate, the Police alerted and given an accurate description of the intruders along with their exact location within the protected area.
