How does Remotely Monitored CCTV Work?
Remotely monitored CCTV is a cost-effective method of providing live on-the-ground site protection around the clock, without the huge costs associated with providing 24 hour manned cover.
It works by connecting motion detectors to cameras, linked to a 24 hour remote monitoring control centre. Using high speed broadband and wireless 3G connections, the integrated cameras and motion sensors detect any movement onsite. If an alarm / detector is triggered, images from an associated camera are transmitted to a specialist Remote Video Response Centre (RVRC), 24 hours a day.
If the images indicate a problem, the trained operators will manage the incident by accessing a site plan and immediately issusing a verbal audio warning to any intruder through onsite speakers. If necessary, operators will alert the emergency services who provide a priority response as the incident has been visually confirmed.
GB Monitoring use the latest technology and highly sophisticated data compression software to provide real time viewing and control of cameras via a broadband connection
Primary and / or backup communications can be provided over a standard telephone connection or a 3G mobile connection, providing additional resilience to protect against potential intruders from damaging communications and maintaining communication in event of a temporary fault on the data network
All monitoring systems are fitted, as standard, with the capability to transmit audio. This can typically be used with an intercom system or with high volume speakers, to order potential criminals off the premises.
For more sophisticated security systems, control relays can be fitted onsite. These can be used to control the site access by operating gates and barriers as well as to control other equipment like smoke generating machines and sounders.
