The benefits of video security.
Video surveillance is one of the most representative examples of the evolution of security and the use of new technologies in the service of protection. Video security is a proven device. Experienced since the 1970s, this system has continued to improve thanks to digital progress. Formerly decried for their poor image quality and lack of direct intervention, today video security is one of the most widespread and effective security devices. CCTV cameras are now essential prevention and action tools in the fight against damage, theft, and violence.
The effectiveness of a video surveillance system lies in its management and the expertise of the company that installs and operates it. Indeed, it is important to rely on professionals who will be able to best determine your needs and the appropriate solutions. The location, type, and number of cameras are not insignificant and are decisive in the effectiveness of video surveillance.
Increasingly efficient command centers
Although new equipment is appearing on the security market, the surveillance camera offers an advantage inherent in its function, image capture, and backup. These images viewed live make it possible to better visualize the risk and to intervene accordingly and they are solid evidence for possible legal proceedings.
Today, video security offers are multiplying and are more affordable. However, it is necessary to choose a service provider that is responsive to the maintenance of the equipment and to the answers to your questions. Also, it is essential to ensure the quality of the command center which betrays the CCTV images. Indeed, the effectiveness of this command center results in the effectiveness of video protection.
Command centers have evolved enormously and are now capable of combining a great deal of visual and computer data (cameras, alarms, sensors, etc.) and grouping them together to gain a rapid, complete, and reliable understanding of events. Command centers can be configured to automatically combine disparate information and identify key elements allowing operators to respond to the threat perfectly. Operators have various direct means of action, triggering an alarm, calling the police, intervention by a security team… Each threat and situation are unique. The expertise of the agents in the platform is essential in order to choose the most effective response.
Video surveillance, complete and effective protection for everyone
Video surveillance offers daily protection, 24/7 without interruption. It is now possible to consult the images of the cameras live from his smartphone, which offers a reassuring side for the owner of the protected site. Individuals cannot permanently monitor their property themselves, which is why it is essential to associate with a professional command center for complete protection.
For individuals, video surveillance can safely protect their homes, property, and occupants at a reduced cost. Video security is just as suitable for professionals. The cameras have the role of deterrence and effective action alone. They can also be coupled with a glass breakage sensor, an intrusion alarm, etc. Video surveillance can provide more information than these devices. The operators having this gain of information, can intervene more quickly and accordingly.
But video surveillance, today, does not intervene only during or following harmful events. With operators and technology working together, it is now possible to identify and detect preliminary factors that can lead to damaging incidents. This preventive work mitigates the threats to the site and its assets.
Video surveillance, if in principle has not evolved much, remains one of the most widespread and effective security systems available. Modular, it can easily be accompanied by many different systems. If the concept of the cameras has not undergone a revolution, the accompaniment or all that revolves around it allows this system to be highly efficient and to remain an essential part of surveillance. Image and video is the most informative tool, they will always remain at the center of any effective security system.
