Professionally Monitored Video Verification for Your Business Alarm SystemJuly 25th, 2019
What happens if you are unavailable during an alarm? If you contract with a professional monitoring company, they can use video verification on your behalf to determine if a trigger is a false alarm or worthy of a police dispatch.
It should be no surprise to you why having cameras as part of your security system provides added security — when you’re not there, cameras let you keep an eye on things remotely through an app or browser.
When you have cameras connected to your system, you will receive video verification on any alarm and you will be able to easily monitor and manage your system from anywhere. In the event of an alarm, video verification can increase response time of emergency responders. Based on your knowledge of the situation and camera footage or what you’re witnessing at the premises, depending on your security system you may even be able to cancel or verify the alarm right from the app. It also allows you to store all video triggered by an alarm which can be used as evidence and may help recover costs of damages or stolen goods in the case of a break in.
But what if your unavailable for any reason to confirm which it is? When you choose cameras integrated with our monitoring center’s Video Verification services, we’re able to work on your behalf and make informed decisions based on what we’re seeing.
Like you, our operators are also able to use Video Verification to view your cameras’ recorded clips and live views. Upon an alarm, our operators can view the footage right away. It also allows us to capture clips from live view to share with you. Rest assured, your privacy is important to us and they’re only allowed access to your cameras for a limited time only before and after an alarm.
If you’re unavailable, we’re able to determine whether the trigger is a false alarm or worthy of a police dispatch. As a result, we can ensure police and/or fire departments are dispatched to a “real” alarm, plus we can prevent you from being assessed heavy fines for false alarms. Some of the other benefits of choosing cameras and NVRs that allow us to enable Video Verification on your account:
Faster police response due to professional verified alarms. Priority response is given to alarms with video footage.
Facilitates more arrests and increases the chances of recovering stolen property.
Assists in officer safety before arriving on the scene.
Video verification assists in lowering insurance costs in some areas.
In the event of an alarm, you’re the best one to assess what’s happening. But if you’re unavailable to respond, we can offer you the peace of mind knowing our Video Verification services give us the power to work on your behalf and quickly confirm a valid reason to dispatch emergency responders or cancel false alarms.
