Stay Safe with Live Video Monitoring

The use of live video monitoring systems has become increasingly popular as a means of providing security for businesses and organizations. These systems provide real-time footage of the secured property, giving owners, managers, and security professionals the ability to identify and respond to potential threats quickly and efficiently. In this article, we’ll review the benefits of live video monitoring before shortly turning to security solutions by Verkada.

The Benefits of Live Video Monitoring

There are many benefits of live video monitoring, including deterring crime, providing peace of mind, and increasing safety.

Live video monitoring can be a great deterrent to crime. If potential criminals know that their actions are being watched, they are less likely to commit a crime. This can help to keep your building and your community safe. In addition to deterring crime, live video monitoring security can also provide peace of mind. If you know that your business or organization is being monitored, you can rest assured that it is safe.

Furthermore, live video monitoring security can also increase safety. If there is an incident, the footage can be used to identify the perpetrator and bring them to justice. This can help to make your community a safer place for everyone. Finally, live video monitoring is beneficial because if an incident or a crime were to occur, the security professionals monitoring your property 24/7 can take quick action to reduce emergency response time.

How Does Live Video Monitoring with Verkada Work?

Live video monitoring is not included with all security systems. Consequently, it is vital to actively seek out security systems that provide round-the-clock monitoring by trained security personnel. With Verkada’s Alarm license and security cameras, you can rest easy knowing that your business, facility, or organization is protected with live video monitoring. But how exactly does live video monitoring work?

First, you decide which cameras will be monitored and when. Then, whenever a human is detected in the scene, Verkada’s sophisticated AI analytics alert 24/7 monitoring agents. Alarms can be generated by other Verkada devices, such as access control or intrusion sensors.

Second, as soon as an alarm is triggered, live video monitoring personnel will review the associated video footage to determine whether anyone or anything is in immediate danger. Finally, if there is a genuine threat, the monitoring agent will immediately contact the customer’s call list. Customers can also ask representatives to contact emergency services on their behalf. The agent reduces the likelihood of false alarms by dismissing the incident if there is no immediate danger.

Essentially, the Verkada agents in charge of your building’s live video monitoring services (1) detect unusual activity, (2) investigate the situation, and (3) take the initiative if an emergency arises
