Imagine having video surveillance that can:
- Prevent crime in real-time
- Increase criminal apprehension rates
- Protect your property, business, and assets
- Be cost-effective
- Keep you from having to lift a finger
Sounds too good to be true? It’s not.
One of the most important improvements to video surveillance technology over the last several years is live video intervention. When a security event triggers an alarm that is integrated with a video surveillance system, a notification can be sent to a monitoring station where trained operators can instantly view live video footage and intervene – mitigating criminal activity long before the authorities are notified.
Live remote guarding allows station operators to catch intruders in the act, verbally warn, and monitor the situation in real-time. In most cases, live video intervention can get the intruder to leave the property before law enforcement even arrives.
What sets video intervention apart from typical alarm and video security system features?
Typical CCTV surveillance systems only record footage that is either accessible remotely through cloud-based technology or stored for later viewing which means they can only show you who or what is tripping an alarm. There isn’t really too much one can do other than to see and record the security event happening and alerting the authorities – meaning room for criminal activity to take place while you watch and wait on law enforcement to arrive on the scene. This is the gap that live remote guarding can fill.
Video intervention serves as a comprehensive, monitored video solution that takes security a step further because the system collects audio and visual data, checks for irregularities to secure the facility perimeter, and provides you with mobile/remote access to live and recorded audio and video. Operators can then intervene through the use of live, two-way audio talk-down features that deter theft and trespassing. This comprehensive intervention solution will increase the likelihood of priority police response, minimize losses, and increase apprehension rates.
Why video intervention is valuable to you?
The long and short of it is that video intervention can add immeasurable value to your peace of mind and the overall security of your property:
- It deters criminal activity and minimizes losses
- It increases apprehension rates and the likelihood of priority police response
- It offers trained operator support – meaning less headache for you!
If you’ve ever watched criminal activity take place through your video surveillance system, you know the anxiety that follows in knowing the crime could have been prevented. Having video intervention via remote guarding by trained operators eliminates the need for this anxiety altogether because you’ll know the situation is being handled immediately. If you ever require any kind of support, operators are always there to assist.
