Remote video surveillance is becoming an increasingly popular way to keep an eye on your property. Whether you’re looking to monitor your business or protect a valuable asset, remote video surveillance can offer a number of benefits. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at what remote video surveillance is, how it works, and some of the benefits it offers.

What is Remote Video Surveillance?

Remote video surveillance is a remote monitoring system that uses network or cloud-based cameras to capture and record activities in real time. This can be done from any remote location and is especially useful for remote locations such as businesses, schools, hospitals, manufacturing facilities, warehouses, and other remote sites.

The Benefits of Remote Video Surveillance

Remote video surveillance offers a range of benefits for businesses and facilities of all types. One of the main advantages is that remote video surveillance systems offer a greater level of flexibility than traditional security systems by allowing users to customize settings and access remote cameras from anywhere with an internet connection.

Additionally, remote video surveillance systems can provide a greater level of detail than traditional security systems, allowing users to view activity in real-time or review recorded footage at any time. This can be invaluable for businesses who need to monitor their property but have limited manpower on hand.

Finally, remote video surveillance systems deters crime and protects your property, employees, and customers. After all, it is known that criminals are less likely to target businesses with security systems. Overall, there are many benefits to incorporating remote video surveillance as part of your security system.

An Introduction to Remote Video Surveillance

Overall, security systems with 24/7 remote video surveillance by a security professional are a great way for business owners to protect their investments while also keeping their employees and customers safe. With these systems in place, businesses can rest assured knowing their building is safe and secure.

However, not all security systems come with remote video surveillance services. For this reason, it is crucial to actively look for surveillance systems that offer such services by trained security personnel. With Verkada’s Alarm license and installation of security cameras, you can rest easy knowing that your facility is protected with remote video surveillance services. But how precisely does real-time video surveillance work?

How Remote Video Surveillance Works
Step 1 of Remote video surveillance - detect unusual activity

You begin by determining which cameras will be watched and at what times. Verkada’s high-tech AI analytics then notify on-call security personnel whenever a human is detected at the scene. Additionally, access control and intrusion sensors are two other Verkada devices that can trigger alarms. Second, when an alarm goes off, security officials will look at the footage to see if anything is in immediate danger.

Ultimately, if there is a real danger, the monitoring agent will immediately contact the customer’s call list. In the event of an emergency, customers can also request that agents contact the appropriate authorities. The agent avoids unnecessary alarms by disregarding the situation if it poses no immediate risk. The Verkada agents in charge of your building’s remote video surveillance services will essentially (1) spot suspicious behavior, (2) look into the matter, and (3) take charge if an emergency occurs.
