Remote surveillance may impact your commercial property more than you realize. It can help protect your property, assets, and investments from damage and loss. Property owners and property managers have a responsibility to their investors to ensure that their clients, employees, and assets are protected. Assets include the building itself, benches, artwork and inventory.
Simply recording video does not do much to protect a commercial property and its assets from criminals. At best, recorded surveillance video can only be used as after-the-fact evidence. That is why more businesses and commercial real estate companies invest in a live remote video monitoring service.
How Remote Surveillance Could Have Prevented Damage
A tire shop in Fort Worth, Texas could have benefited from a remote video monitoring system. The tire shop was victim to numerous burglaries and car thefts in a span of six months. They tried to increase security measures which included an on-site guard dog, but it did not deter criminals. Even the guard dog was stolen.
With a customized video surveillance system, the owners could have been alerted about the suspicious activity. A remote surveillance system monitor could have seen the break-ins and thefts and called the local police.
One huge advantage of a customized remote monitoring system is that it can watch for suspicious activity from anywhere. All you’ll need is an internet connection. Property owners and managers can log on (via the internet) and watch their property in real time. The system uses the on-site surveillance cameras and property managers can watch their property via mobile device, tablet, laptop, or personal computer during monitoring times.
Remote Surveillance Provides Peace of Mind
A car dealership or tire store security guard or guard dog can not be at two places at once. Remote surveillance utilizes multiple surveillance cameras installed through a commercial property. Trained surveillance operators can monitor your surveillance cameras in real-time to deter trespassers, vagrants, vandals, thieves from your property.
Remote video monitoring can give property managers and property owners a peace of mind. It may be the greatest benefit of all. Property and business owners can feel safe when they’re away from their property.
