A standalone CCTV System can alert you if any of your sensors picks up movement. This allows you to check your footage on your smartphone to see what is going on. You can then call the Police and tell them if there is a burglary in progress or if one of your team have had an accident.
A monitored commercial CCTV system provides an instant response whenever the camera analytics or associated alarm sensors are triggered. Our professionally manned and fully accredited video receiving centre is watching over your premises 24/7 whenever the system is primed. Response does not rely on you receiving a push notification and being able to take appropriate action. This means keyholders, police or any other first responders will already be on their way.
When your system is armed and an incident occurs, your CCTV sends a signal to the VRC (Video Receiving Centre). This allows them to register the alert and view, in real time, events at your premises; and accessing playback when necessary. This is so that false alarms are logged and noted, so you are not disturbed by the local foxes patrolling the yard. Real activations however will trigger the appropriate response, including notification of your nominated keyholders. Many of our business customers use staff and key management for this, however another great option is using a professional and trusted security management company as a nominated keyholder. They get the call and will deal with the alert on your behalf, meeting the police on site if required.
Your CCTV camera images are transmitted to the 24 hour control room at our Video Receiving Centre (VRC). Within seconds the VRC verifies the cause of the signal and, if a burglary is in progress, they notify the Police. The Police will be dispatched to your property.
It’s all done for you. 24/7. 365 days a year.
