Remote monitored CCTV control room

Having previously outsourced CCTV remote monitoring, we felt that we were limited on the quality that we could provide to our clients and wanted to ensure that our partners consistently received best in class service and a complete future proof solution.

The progression of CCTV technology over recent years has meant that the majority of site can be adequately secured with CCTV alone, whereas 5/10 years ago it would have been far more common to have placed a guard (or two) on a project. With regards to remote monitoring, the current VIS control room works a lot better, they send out reminders about weekend working, issue reports following an incident and appear to be far more reliable. CCTV cameras have also played a major part in recording some incidents/accidents, this in turn records the true event that has taken place, affords us to put control measures and learning in place to prevent it happening again, and prevents manufactured claims coming in from unscrupulous individuals.
