GB Monitoring Director, Tom Smith, explains how remotely monitored CCTV can replace existing security measures to save you money and improve security.
Many companies are still using traditional manned security guards and mobile patrols to keep their properties safe. Security guards are often expensive and sometimes unreliable and mobile patrols can only provide limited coverage.
Remotely monitored CCTV systems are relatively low cost and can protect any type of closed location including construction sites, depots and factories to offices, schools and colleges. The advanced technology used in these systems ensures that they can be adapted for use at any site.
“Remotely monitored CCTV reduces the risk of human error, it cannot be threatened, it does not require facilities such as rest rooms, radios and vehicles and it will never fall asleep on the job. Many problems which we have overcome for our customers,” explained Tom Smith.
He continued, “A switch to a remotely monitored CCTV system often results in cost savings of more than 80% on the annual security bill as well as boosting security standards by having 24 hour protection.”
For companies with static cameras and local onsite recording, the move to remote monitoring would deliver higher levels of security and reduced management overheads. By working with a remote monitoring station with BS 8418 compliance, you also get priority Police response.
The major benefit of a remotely monitored CCTV system is that instead of detecting crime after it has happened, you can stop criminals before they attack – reducing losses, cutting downtime and minimising insurance claims and management overheads.
