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’re 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 manned guarding services.
But why go to the hassle and the expense when there’s another option to hand: remote monitoring through a third party. STANLEY Security’s CCTV remote monitoring service operates 24/7 from our Category 2 NSI Gold Standard BS5979 accredited Monitoring Centre. It’s staffed by highly trained professionals who monitor your CCTV system and provide notiﬁcations and instant response to incidents.
