24/7 Continuous Security monitoring by expert

What is Continuous Security Monitoring?

If you’ve been doing your research on the latest, most advanced security systems, you have likely encountered the term “continuous security monitoring”. But what does it mean? Simply put, continuous security monitoring is the process of using video surveillance cameras to monitor an area for activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are many benefits to using this type of security system, including deterring crime, catching criminals in the act, and providing peace of mind.

The Benefits of Continuous Security Monitoring

There are many benefits of using continuous security monitoring for your organization including deterring crime, catching criminals in the act, providing evidence for criminal prosecution, and peace of mind.

  • Deter Theft, Vandalism, and Crime: Security systems that boast continuous security monitoring can serve as a strong deterrent to crime. If potential criminals know that their activities are being actively monitored they are less likely to commit a crime. 
  • Identify Criminals in Real-time: Security systems that have continuous security monitoring can also help catch criminals in the act. This type of system provides a proactive approach to security by alerting security personnel to potential risks as they are happening, rather than after the fact.
  • Provide Evidence: Continuous security monitoring can also provide evidence for prosecution if a crime occurs. This helps to ensure that criminals are caught and prosecuted, and it may help protect your business or organization from a repeat offense.
  • Peace of Mind: Continuous security monitoring can provide peace of mind for business owners. Knowing that your property has round-the-clock protection in case of an emergency can help reduce anxiety and stress levels.

How Does Continuous Security Monitoring Work with Verkada

Step 1 of Continuous security monitoring is detecting unusal activity

Not all security systems come with continuous security monitoring. Hence, it is important to actively look for security systems that do offer round the clock monitoring with security professionals. With Verkada’s Alarm license and security cameras, you can rest assured that your business, facility, or organization is protected with continuous security monitoring. But, how does continuous security monitoring actually work?  

First, you choose which cameras you’d like monitored and when. Then, Verkada’s sophisticated AI analytics notify our round-the-clock monitoring agents whenever a human is detected in the scene. Other Verkada devices, such as access control or intrusion sensors, can also generate alarms for review.

Step 2 of continuous security monitoring

Second, monitoring personnel will check the associated video footage as soon as an alarm is set off to see if anyone or anything is in immediate danger. Finally, the monitoring agent will immediately get in touch with the customer’s call list if there is a real threat. Customers can also request that representatives call emergency services on their behalf. By dismissing the incident if there is no immediate danger, the agent reduces the likelihood of false alarms.

Essentially, the Verkada agents that run your building’s continuous security monitoring (1) identify strange activity, (2) examine the situation, and (3) take initiative if there is an emergency at hand.
