Remote monitored CCTV control room

In 2020, VIS made the decision to invest in setting up our own dedicated CCTV control room. Having previously outsourced CCTV remote monitoring, we felt that we did not have full control of service quality standards that our clients expected and wanted to ensure that our partners consistently received best in class service and a complete future proof solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a remote monitored CCTV control room?

A dedicated 24/7 operation that is designed to monitor intruder alarm activations from CCTV systems. VIS is a specialist in construction site CCTV monitoring with over 20 years management level industry experience.

How does CCTV monitoring work?

VIS have a range of CCTV solutions suitable for any size and type of construction project. Once a solution is installed on your site, it will be connected via 4G to our control room. If an intruder enters your site out of hours, VIS operators receive an instant alert and will audio challenge the intruders with a verbal warning. Local security response and Police would then be contacted as required and a detailed incident report would be issued to the project team.

What are the benefits of a CCTV control room?

Take the hassle out of construction site security and remove the need for traditional manned guarding security.

How often is the CCTV monitored?

Your CCTV is typically monitored outside of working hours for crime prevention and safety. Our latest CCTV systems use advanced virtual detection so cameras can differentiate between a human and vehicle, and filter out unwanted false alarms due to materials, wildlife and other building related factors.

Do VIS offer manned security guarding?

We understand that certain projects may still need security guards for insurance purposes or high-risk, sensitive sites. As part of the SIA approved contractor scheme (ACS), VIS can combine manned security, remote monitoring and a diversity of security products and services, Regionally and across the UK, to underpin and optimize our partners security and safety operations 24/7 - 365.

Oops! Something went wrong while submitting the form.

As part of our carbon initiative and while setting up the site with no mains electricity, we needed a high-quality, monitored CCTV tower that did not require a generator as these systems use diesel and create unwanted noise for local residents. VIS Eco Tower is solar-powered and has been on site since week one of the scheme. The unit is rapidly deployable and can easily be moved around the site if required for plant and security monitoring. We can access the HD cameras remotely and feel it is an immensely sustainable and cost-effective solution for both initial setup and end of project handover. Once we have the main cabins in situ and electricity is live, VIS will then implement stage 2 of the plan, remove the tower and install our site-wide CCTV.
