You can never predict when crime or an incident might happen. However, it is a norm that many criminal activities happen during the evening and night hours. Despite this, there are numerous cases of breakings that occur during the day.

One incident, might one way or another, have frightening impact to the business’ assets and the staff. Therefore, having a quality video surveillance solution in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is a worthwhile investment for peace of mind and control.

How Does Event-Based Video Monitoring Work.

Generally, it takes over a minute for an intruder to make their way on to a property. In some cases, the individual uses brute force to enter the premises and then carry out malicious activity. Well, our immediate action is to deter or prevent any malicious activity from taking place.

This is achieved by event-based monitoring that takes advantage of advanced video analytics software and sensor-equipped cameras that trigger human activities and reviews based on defined protocols. Our seasonal virtual security guards utilize our updated and advanced technology and analytics to signal alerts curated from identified thresholds. The moment an intruder accesses or tries to break into the property, our team is instantly alerted.  With our voice-down feature, we can speak directly to potential intruders to mitigate threats and dispatch authorities only when necessary.

Benefits of using Event-Based Video Monitoring Services for your business

Gone are the days when you only depend on physical guards to ramp up security for your premises. With the Event-based video monitoring service, you can get better bang for your buck. Below are some of the benefits of utilizing the event-based monitoring solution.

  • Enhance your security

Event-based video monitoring removes human error by leveraging advanced technology, automation and analytics hence your assets and people stay secured and you never miss a beat.

In addition upgrading your current video surveillance / CCTV system, by simply adding IP and sensor-equipped cameras, the most reasonable choice. IP cameras can be attached to an installation using existing analog cameras, which allows easy integration to the current HD standard instead of hanging on to the old solutions of yesterday.

  • Significantly reduce your cost hence save you money

Every day, small and medium-sized businesses all over the world suffer from fires, theft, vandalism and other harmful incidents. You can get better bang for your buck if you use event-based video monitoring services since the virtual security guard force eliminates the need of having a physical guard on site throughout every shift.  This not only reduces guard cost, but also aid in the prevention of crime that would have resulted in property loss or vandalism.

  • Seamlessly secure multiple places at once

Event-based video monitoring allows you to proactively secure multiple locations by the aid of a few cameras with large fields of view rather than individual cameras in different places with limited viewing angles. You easily capture and deter any unusual activities within and around your premises.

  • Eliminate false positives

Excessive false alerts drive up costs. Central station managers have to hire more operators to deal with them, which places a cap on stations’ profitable scalability. This can be limited and curbed by the use of event-based video monitoring which detects motion and immediately triggers alerts which can be monitored immediately as it occurs and action is taken.

In addition; the dual-channel authentication approach, combines facial recognition system using CCTV machine learning with radio-frequency identification. This helps identify the intruder and protect his or her privacy with greater security.
