What is Remote Security Management?

Remote Security Management is a secure and cost-effective monitoring service to secure your business premises 24/7. A CCTV Camera with added intelligent video analysis software is the fundamental component of the service.

A web connection transfers the footages from your CCTV cameras to remote screens located in our monitoring station. If any unusual activity is detected, the incident will alert our monitoring centre. A STANLEY Security Alarm Operator will handle received video alarms alerts and evaluate what is happening in the LIVE footage.

An example is asking unauthorised person to remove themselves by using a live audio warning. If audio warnings are not enough to deter the intruder, then the emergency services will be contacted.

The functionality can be extended with ordinary cameras, both internally and externally.

Our remote monitoring centres handle all traditional on-site security guard tasks, reducing security staff costs, and giving you the benefit of knowing that a central operations team is always monitoring your business premises. They will evaluate the situation and confirm if an intrusion attempt has taken place, reducing the occurrence of false alarms which leads to faster Police response.
