For a truly effective CCTV system, you need to monitor it round the clock to check for suspicious activity; otherwise, your system is mostly a deterrent or there to provide evidence post event (when most people would prefer to prevent the ‘event’ in the first place).
CCTV remote monitoring
If you run a a small business, you could do this yourself, maybe through a mobile app to view images wherever you are. If you have the budget, then you could stretch to on site security personnel to undertake this, including physical on-site guarding services.
But why go to the hassle and the potentially unnecessary expense when there’s another option to hand: remote monitoring through a professional service provider. STANLEY Security’s CCTV remote monitoring service operates 24/7 from our Category 2 NSI Gold Standard BS5979 accredited Monitoring Centre.
