24/7 Smart Surveillance
24/7 Smart Surveillance is a technology that enables CCTV systems to intelligently assess an environment and notify the 24/7 Command Centre of an intrusion. The technology draws immediate attention to unauthorised activity, allowing us to intervene and react before a crime occurs.
In contrast, traditional means of CCTV surveillance only cater for investigations after the crime has occurred, in many cases having costly consequences for the business or homeowner.
While the technology behind proactive off-site video monitoring is sophisticated, the way it prevents potential crimes is easy to understand:
- A potential threat approaches the perimeter of your site or property.
- This threatening activity is picked up by AI technology.
- An alert is sent within seconds to the 24/7 Command Centre.
- The operator assesses the threat over a live video feed and actions the required response – audio warning, Armed Response deployment etc.
Proactive monitoring systems can be armed and disarmed for specific types of activity and certain times of the day. This is especially useful for business owners because it allows them the control to set the system to arm outside of business hours.
Video surveillance can be divided into two categories – proactive and reactive. Reactive video systems solely rely on surveillance footage of the crime after it has taken place and cannot prevent a crime occurring.
Proactive video monitoring, such as 24/7 Smart Surveillance, differs from reactive monitoring because the intelligent detection software employed behind each camera effectively turns it into a 24/7, 365-day security guard.
