Remote Security Monitoring – Real-time Video Surveillance

Remote security monitoring provided by Verkada security personnel

What is Remote Security Monitoring?

One of the latest and most popular trends in security is remote security monitoring. So what is remote security monitoring? Simply put, remote security monitoring is when you have an agent keeping an eye on your security system. There are many advantages to using remote security monitoring, including deterring crime, catching criminals in the act, and providing peace of mind.

The Benefits of Remote Security Monitoring

Remote security monitoring is a process by which security professionals can keep an eye on your property and assets from a distance 24/7. There are many benefits of using remote 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 with remote security monitoring can be an effective deterrent to criminals. If potential criminals are aware that their activities are being actively monitored, their likelihood of committing a crime decreases.
  • Identify Criminals in Real-time: Security systems with remote 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: Remote security monitoring can also provide evidence for prosecution in the event of a crime. This ensures that criminals are apprehended and prosecuted, and it may protect your company or organization from a repeat offense.
  • Peace of Mind: Remote security monitoring can provide peace of mind for business owners. Knowing that your property has round-the-clock protection in the event of an emergency can help reduce anxiety and stress levels.

The Steps in Remote Security Monitoring

Not all security systems include a remote monitoring component. Consequently, it is essential to actively seek out security systems that provide around-the-clock monitoring by trained security personnel. With the Alarm license and security cameras from Verkada, you can rest assured that your business, facility, or organization is continuously and remotely monitored for security threats. So, how does Verkada’s remote security monitoring function?

Step 1 of remote security monitoring is detecting unusual activity

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 remote security monitoring to review events

Second, as soon as an alarm is triggered, monitoring personnel will examine the associated video footage to determine if anyone or anything is in imminent 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.

Step 3 - take action

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