CCTV remote monitoring

What is CCTV remote monitoring?

Shield Security Service’s CCTV remote monitoring uses a combination of the latest CCTV and video transmission technology to offer monitoring of client sites by our off-site team.

Traditionally, unmanned CCTV systems record incidents in progress for later viewing. Needless to say this offers no opportunity to prevent or limit damage in progress or to enable security suppliers to offer interactive, responsive security cover. CCTV remote monitoring services provide commercial and domestic properties, business locations and construction sites with a peace-of-mind security solution; meaning you don’t need to hire additional staff to provide around the clock security.

At Shield we offer the added benefit of our own state-of-the-art control room, which is manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This hi-tech remote monitoring station enables our experienced and trained controllers to view live events at customer sites whenever required. Advanced video transmission equipment can be installed into existing, as well as new CCTV systems, allowing the Shield control room to view live CCTV images over the internet or telephone lines. Powerful software enables efficient and effective monitoring of large numbers of remote customer sites.

From the control room, our controllers utilise site data to make decisions on how best to keep premises secure, including using information from alarm systems, motion detectors, door contacts and heat sensors. Other hi-tech systems allow Shield security officers in the control room to communicate to intruders that they are being watched. Linked intercom systems also enable Shield controllers to hold conversations with visitors and allow or deny access through locked doors.

This highly cost-effective system can be utilised in a variety of remote or unmanned areas; where the cost of traditional security for these sites is often untenable in the long term.

These surveillance areas include:

  • Large offices
  • Utilities and heavy industrial premises
  • Service stations and retail outlets
  • Financial institutions
  • Warehouses
  • Airports
  • Schools and universities
  • Marine ports

CCTV remote monitoring can be combined with other Shield Security services, such as mobile security patrols, key holding services and emergency response to provide a complete security package for your site.
