What is Remote Monitoring?

This concept is very straightforward. Remote Monitoring is the ability to view and manage CCTV without being physically at the location. As long as there is an internet connection you can monitor your cameras from anywhere in the world. This article explores the benefits of remote monitoring – how it decreases your exposure to burglaries/robberies.

 

Round the clock surveillance

Traditional camera systems needed a dedicated security guard. Someone on site in the control room watching all the camera feeds. Remote monitoring removes this physical presence need, now it can be done from afar. You can either watch your property yourself or contract a security monitoring centre.

 

Many businesses would not have had the budget for a 24/7 security guard sitting in their control room, but remote monitoring ability solves this problem. Security cameras allow property owners to watch their property in real time or go through footage later to detect any suspicious behaviour or criminal activity.

 

Intruder Deterrent

CCTV camera’s primary method of fighting crime has always been that of a visual deterrent. Burglars or intruders are aware they are being monitored and recorded. Security cameras are visible and are clearly seen by anyone approaching the property, and this can be enhanced with “CCTV operating” signs.
