The Benefits of Remotely Monitored Video Surveillance Cameras

Mobile Video Surveillance Cameras act as a visual deterrent and allow for the investigation of criminal activities.

They are utilized at construction job sites, parking lots, businesses and for a range of remote site security applications such is their proven effectiveness. 

But when surveillance cameras are backed by professional video monitoring services, a camera becomes a virtual security guard - always awake, always on guard and always protecting your sites.

WCCTV, the USA's leading provider of mobile video surveillance cameras, explores the numerous benefits of remote video monitoring below.

Benefits and Advantages of Remote Video Monitoring

Before we detail the specific benefits, let's first explain what remote monitoring actually means - and how it occurs. 

All of WCCTV's mobile video surveillance cameras deliver live and recorded video via 4G LTE. The video can be accessed at any time, from anywhere with any connected device. 

For professional remote monitoring purposes, the video stream is sent directly to an Interactive Surveillance Operations Center (ISOC) where a security professional will receive an alarm or alert from your site, immediately review the footage to verify the alarm and then take appropriate action.

Typically, these alarms are generated via Video Analytics - intelligent rule based surveillance algorithms built into WCCTV security cameras that detect movement on your sites

The Key Benefits of Remote Monitoring

  • Crime prevention: Alarm monitoring allows potential threats to your sites, businesses or property to be spotted in real-time and addressed

  • Caught red-handed: If criminal activity is detected by your security cameras, the ISOC can raise an alert to Law Enforcement or security patrols who can respond to site and catch the offenders in the act

  • Cost-effective: Security cameras, even when backed by remote monitoring, are up to 80% cheaper than the cost of a security guard

  • No compromise: Cheaper doesn't mean less effective. A monitored security camera is always awake, always on guard and can spot criminals even in total darkness 

  • Evidence and investigation: A professional security camera operator can track every move a criminal makes, gathering critical evidence that will assist with Law Enforcement investigations 

  • Reporting and analysis: An ISOC will be able to provide you with a customized report of any incidents that take place at your locations, and give details on what action was taken

  • Alarms, sirens and audio voice-down activation: If an intrusion is detected at your site, a remote operator can activate the inbuilt blue lights, siren and voice-down systems on a WCCTV surveillance camera. These are a proven deterrent to any potential criminal activity

  • Fewer false alarms: Having your security cameras monitored by professionals means they can detect things on site that may trigger false alarms, and they can also filter these out completely for you

  • Expertise: WCCTV's partner ISOC is managed by a team of ex-military, police and law enforcement professionals who provide 24/7/365 vigilance when it comes to protecting your sites

  • Convenience: Rather than worry about late night call outs, reviewing your sites over the weekends and holidays - why not leave it to the experts and have complete peace of mind that your sites and properties are in the best hands?
