Surveillance

...is the monitoring of the behavior, activities, or other changing information in your operating environment. This monitoring can be passive or active, overt or covert. It can be performed by a security professional who is trained to observe and report, a licensed investigations professional, or through a variety of optical and electronic devices.

Surveillance can happen in real-time, near-real time, or the video collected can be stored for future reference. The difference between the three are quite important from a security perspective. Real-time allows for immediate intervention if required, while near-real is usually a way of saying that nobody's watching, but an alarm will tell me when to look. The storing of video is usually only used for forensic purposes - who did what when. It has a limited deterrence capability.

REMOTE VERIFIABLE IP SURVEILLANCE

OR WHAT WE CALL VIRTUAL PATROLLING
Surveillance can be done physically, on-site or remotely. The latter capability represents a marriage between digital cameras, wired, and wireless technologies.

Gone are the old days of CCTV. Better cameras, analytics, and IP protocols, are opening up the door to a convergence between physical security, video surveillance and information technology. Many duties that had been handled by guards and mobile patrols can now be transferred to a Security Operations Center (SOC) where experienced operations personnel remotely manage your security and any incidents that may happen.

We have augmented this capability with a physical response from our mobile patrol fleet. Using GPS technology the SOC are able to identified the closest car to respond to suspicious activity. In the event of a verifiable criminal incident, police are also dispatched.
