CCTV can play a major role in protecting business premises by providing detection that can allow your site to be watched over 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Security cameras also provide the opportunity to record criminal activity for evidential purposes.
The effectiveness of security cameras has improved over the years with advancing technology bringing with it an increased demand for Detector Activated Remotely Monitored camera systems. These CCTV systems work particularly well for large or exposed sites and provide an alternative to the out-of-hours continuous live monitoring of images.
When set, the remotely monitored CCTV system will activate in response to a detected intrusion and send an alert signal to a Remote Video Response Centre (RVRC), where an operator will then evaluate the situation and respond accordingly.
Where premises need to be secured or high value items protected around-the-clock, remotely monitored CCTV can be an effective and economical solution for detecting and then identifying potential intrusion within a secure area.
You may wish to ask the crime reduction officer at your local Police station for advice before you buy-in a system. If you want your security to be effective and meet the requirements set out by police and your insurer, it’s important to have CCTV systems installed and maintained in accordance with the required standards by a professional company such as ourselves, an approved NSI installer.
