How does it work?

State of the art detection and camera systems are strategically located around the site. Images are transmitted from the CCTV cameras on your site to a dedicated CCTV remote monitoring station. Within seconds of system activation, a camera will focus automatically on the cause. Simultaneously the system will transmit real-time images from the camera to the CCTV monitoring centre.

specially trained and experienced operators have complete controlcontrol room over the system, to identify whether the system has been activated by a customer, staff, deliveries or a criminal attack. The operator has the ability to pan, tilt and zoom cameras to get an accurate picture of the disturbance. The operator will make a rapid assessment of the situation and take the appropriate action, such as notifying the police. False alarms are virtually eliminated as all system activations are verified by the monitoring centre, thus ensuring police response if required. As the system incorporates full audio facilities, operators at the CCTV monitoring centre can give verbal warnings to potential attackers or assistance to staff, customers and other visitors to the site. An intercom link can also be provided for authorised enquiries.

Systems are designed in line with the British Standard for ‘Installation and Remote Monitoring of Detector Activated CCTV Systems’ (BS8418:2010). The Code of Practice developed and ratified by the Association of British Insurers, Metropolitan Police, National Security Inspectorate (NSI) and the Home Office, sets a standard for the design, installation and commissioning of event-triggered remotely monitored CCTV systems.

The use of CCTV to detect crime and enhance public safety has proven successful in many applications and has received overwhelming public support. They have become essential in areas where the security and safety of staff, customers and assets is a concern.

Remote Site Management System

Whilst CCTV systems are an effective crime deterrent, there is still a requirement to minimise the effects of any potential threats through immediate action. A remote monitored CCTV and site management system can not only detect an activation but our trained operators can act accordingly to the information received.

Specialist Operators

The monitoring of CCTV footage is fundamentally different to other alarm activations, we have specially trained CCTV operators to determine how the images presented should be responded to. The system not only has the facility to view more than one incident at a time, but our experienced operators can pan, tilt and zoom cameras and take control of any situation that may arise. We also operate peripheral devices such as two way audio facilities.

Monitoring – a fast response service

State of the art detection and camera systems are strategically located around the site. Within seconds of system activation by an intruder, a camera will focus automatically on the cause. Simultaneously the system will translate real-time images from the camera to the CCTV remote monitoring centre.

At our CCTV Remote Monitoring Centre our experienced operators have complete control over the system, to identify whether it is a customer, staff, deliveries or a criminal attack. The operator will make a quick and accurate assessment of the situation and take the appropriate action. No more 98 emails per night because of cats and foxes.

The system also has full audio facilities; this enables our operators to give warnings to potential attackers or assistance to staff, customers and other visitors to the site. An intercom link can also be provided for authorised enquiries.
