What is remote monitoring of CCTV?
Remote CCTV monitoring is a cost-effective security solution that helps to protect your business, commercial property or home from criminal and environmental damage and is the first line of defence.

This connection can be live 24/7 or only armed at times when your site is unattended.
When the system is armed, if a external motion detector is triggered, an alarm is sent to the remote monitoring station with footage from the corresponding camera.
The operators then investigates the cause of the alarm by viewing the footage, if the site has pan/tilt and zoom cameras, they will be used to look around the site. The operators can also view multiple cameras to view the site from different angles – a crucial step in ensuring intruders cannot hide in any blind spots.
If there is an intruder at your site a live audio warning will swiftly be issued:
“Your attention please, this is a security announcement. You are being monitored and recorded on live CCTV. This is private property. Leave now, or the police will be called.”
In the majority of cases, an audio warning will deter intruders from your site.
