Top 5 reasons why visually verified video surveillance is best
Video surveillance is an essential element of modern security systems, helping to enhance public safety, deter crime and provide objective evidence in the case of an incident.
However, not all video surveillance systems are created equal, and visually verified video surveillance stands out as the best option.
Here are the top 5 reasons why visually verified video surveillance is the best choice for enhancing security.
ARC Integration: An Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) receives live video feeds 24/7, monitored by trained staff who can provide the necessary escalation. This allows for immediate response to any suspicious activity or security breach, including contacting local law enforcement, notifying the security team onsite, or activating other pre-agreed security measures. The ability to have real-time support from trained personnel ensures that any security breaches are addressed promptly, helping to prevent crime before it happens.
Focus on Immediate Actions: Visually verified video surveillance is not just about recording what happened last night, but about what can be done now. With live video feeds and real-time support from trained personnel, visually verified video surveillance allows for immediate actions to be taken in case of a security breach. This can include notifying the police, dispatching security personnel, or activating other security measures. This immediate response can help to mitigate the damage and prevent further incidents from occurring, ensuring the safety of your premises and assets.
Avoid false alarms: Is that alert a real security threat or has a fox just walked past your camera? Only a mere 1% of CCTV footage is reviewed by humans and even with video analytics it’s not realistic or time-efficient to expect your manned security guards to consistently be in front of a screen identifying, escalating and responding to threats in real-time. Visually verified video surveillance through a dedicated ARC roots out false alarms and working with site owners, manned guarding and the police to deal with real threats, safely, effectively, and quickly.
Proactive Crime Prevention: A full service visually verified video surveillance system also provides a clear visual deterrent as the unit is clearly visible as a security system and the provider is a recognised brand with perimeter and asset signage that acts as an additional deterrent. The most efficient solutions often incorporate visual and audible warnings to an intruder that they have been detected. If the warnings fail to deter the intruder, the ARC will continue tracking their movements while notifying site security and law enforcement.
Provides Peace of Mind: Knowing that both property and employees are being actively monitored by trained personnel can provide peace of mind for site operators and owners. Visually verified video surveillance offers an added layer of security, giving both companies and clients confidence that their security needs are being met.
As the criminal landscape constantly evolves, visually confirmed video surveillance is the ideal solution for sites seeking optimum protection and peace of mind, providing real time response to changing focus of criminal activity. When compared to standard CCTV systems that review footage after the fact, visually verified video surveillance provides unparalleled security benefits due to its connection to an Alarm Receiving Centre, skilled employees and real-time support, proactive crime prevention, and emphasis on immediate actions.
