Solution-based Monitoring Services
What is Live Video Monitoring?
- UCIT defines Remote Video Monitoring (RVM) as the ability to view on-site cameras and other related equipment off-site using the Internet. Cameras can be viewed by individuals on PCs, desktops or mobile devices or by professionally trained video monitoring operators from secure central stations.
- Since 2003 UCIT has specialized in RVM solutions for commercial applications. Our 3 in-house video monitoring centers across 3 countries are setup to tackle challenges by industry vertical and location. It’s the combination of technology, human intelligence, process and experience that makes us industry leaders.
- Depending on the situation and industry UCIT provides an array of monitoring services to achieve specific client objectives. In some cases, different types of monitoring are used in conjunction to cover various portions of clients’ sites.
- Overall, UCIT’s main objectives are to help customers provide an enhanced level of security while minimizing business risk and reducing costs.
- UCIT’s video monitoring solutions help save clients 25-50% when compared to using on-site security guards.
Live Video Monitoring
Site operators tour cameras several times per hour and respond to analytic-based alarms as they arise. Live Video Monitoring works well on open projects without fencing such as shopping plazas, apartment complexes or low-rise construction sites.
Key advantages with live video monitoring include:
Typically 25-50% less expensive than using guards
UCIT currently averages 25+ police contacts / week

Providing video evidence to assist with documenting incidents
Event Based Monitoring
- Operators react and respond according to video derived from software analytics or hardware-based sensors on-site. If the operator deems the event is legitimate or requires further investigation they will view cameras live in real-time to determine what actions to take.
- Event-based video monitoring works well for restricted spaces where there should be limited or no activity. Sites ideally suited for Event-Based monitoring solutions typically include indoor or fenced areas such as storage yards, warehouses, or utilities substations.
- Event-based two way audio solutions work where operators respond to events from alarm panels or on-site audio devices to communicate with people on site to allow entry / exit of the property. This service works well for industrial or office buildings and often with multi-family residential properties.
Advanced Video Analytics
Over the past several years there have been tremendous improvements in the quality of available video analytics.
UCIT’s in-house team of computer programmers works with our research and development team to integrate the industry’s latest advanced analytics to help enhance our solutions and better serve our customers.
Software analytics can be added to existing analog or IP cameras, eliminating the need to replace entire systems to benefit from using video analytics. Key advantages of using analytics include:
- Help reduce overall security costs by reducing or eliminating guard costs
- Potentially reduce video monitoring costs by lowering the number of false alarms generated
- Optimize operational processes by creating customized rules and scripts
- Stop threats in advance using directional, object tracking and loitering analytics
- Minimize investigation time with a centralized, searchable database
- Simple installation and no need for additional hardware
- Improve compliance requirements with advanced project management reports
- Increase ROI using additional reporting data to improve marketing strategies
Video Escort Service
- Client personnel contacts UCIT via two-way audio devices or by phone; UCIT follows them live on the cameras until they arrive safely in their vehicle or building.
WHY VIDEO ANALYTICS IS THE FUTURE OF SECURITY
Our proactive live video surveillance solutions can protect your perimeter and secure your assets. When our trained operators see suspicious activity they can activate live voice down audio deterrents to scare away intruders or contact authorities. Take a look at the benefits of partnering with the security industry’s most reputable video monitoring partner.
Video capabilities such as object oriented video analytics enable the system to automatically look for humans and vehicles where humans and vehicles should not be located. Such capabilities can drastically reduce the workload of security staff, lower network bandwidth and storage requirements, and enable searches for relevant recordings to be made rapidly.
Unlike traditional alarm companies, UCIT’s video monitoring staff are watching events in real time, allowing operators to scare off criminals using voice down audio deterrents or report live crimes in progress to the police.
UCIT video monitoring solutions can effectively replace, supplement, or compliment on site security guards and mobile patrols often resulting in savings of 25-50%.
New technology makes it easy to integrate analytics-based software with other systems such as access control or existing security installations. Adding new functionality to existing systems or combining analytics with other technologies can be a cost-effective way to upgrade systems.
Advancements in video compression technology and decreasing costs of computer storage space make it possible to archive larger amounts of video data with more parameters. It is now possible to archive months of video footage, which can prove valuable for investigations required after events have occurred.
Whether for security or operational purposes, video analytics can be customized to solve unique and complex business problems.
Retailers may be concerned with people counting and traffic patterns within stores while energy or manufacturing companies may want analytics tied into heat sensors and industrial yards just want to eliminate after-hours trespassers.
