Combine Your Security Camera System With Live Video Monitoring

Combine Your Security Camera System With Live Video Monitoring

Maybe you’ve already considered adding some extra protection for your business by installing security cameras. Security systems are a great step when it comes to the safety of your business, but you can do even more than this. By combining security cameras with live video monitoring, you can actively protect your business, your employees, and your clients instead of reviewing the security tapes after an incident has occurred. Live video monitoring gives you all of the benefits of regular security camera surveillance but with the added protection of the watchful eye of a trained security professional. Here are some of the benefits of using both security cameras and live surveillance.

The Benefits Of Security Cameras And Live Video Monitoring

Fast Response Time
Having a security system is a great line of defense and can often deter criminals, but adding live video monitoring can be even more beneficial. Having a person watching the security cameras allows the security professional to call the police if anyone suspicious is hanging around or attempting to break in, even if they haven’t yet triggered the alarm. Live video surveillance can also report on other activities that may not trigger alarms, such as if a member of staff or client has a medical emergency or if a member of staff or client is committing any sort of infraction.

A Good Alternative To Security Guards
It can be very expensive to pay for live security guards at your business, especially if your building is large. You can’t always have a security guard posted at every potential point of entry, and if you did it would rack up quite the bill. With live video monitoring, you can have a security professional watching as many feeds as you would like. By placing a security camera at every potential point of entry, it’s like having multiple security guards without the price tag associated with all of that labour.

Record Keeping
Security cameras give you the ability to have a record of any incidents on camera. This can include proof of attempted break-ins or vandalism as well as potentially capturing a criminal’s face on camera. When criminal activity is caught live on camera by a security agent, you have a greater chance of catching the criminal.

Keep An Eye On Workers
When employees know there is constant supervision, they are less likely to be on their phones, take extended breaks, chat with other coworkers, or otherwise waste time. The security expert monitoring the live video security cameras can also see if any customers are treating the employees poorly or if they are attempting to scam employees. Because these scams are happening in real-time, the security worker can call the store or the management and inform them what’s happening so they can stop it, instead of just reviewing the tapes later.

Having a security system, in general, will help to deter theft and vandalism. When potential criminals see security cameras, they are automatically less likely to target your business. If the camera is not enough to deter them, the security agent watching the live security camera feed can use two-way audio to verbally tell them to leave or they can threaten to call the authorities, which is a huge deterrent that sends would-be criminals running.
