The concept of remote guarding is simple: Imagine having a security guard who watches your premises 24 hours a day, every day of the year? Imagine that when something untoward is going on, they record the whole thing for you AND let you know about it... That's how remote guarding works.
Using specialist motion-detection equipment plus the latest in night vision and intruder detection systems, our range of Remote Guarding CCTV systems give you tremendous peace of mind coupled with unrivalled CCTV monitoring.
Whether you are guarding a warehouse, shop, empty property or even a construction site, the location of the remote guarding system is inconsequential. For basic systems, you literally only need a power source. For more complex systems which provide you with alarm alerts, you will need phone/internet access. However, we can also provide GSM (phone network) enabled systems for truly remote installations.
There are four basic elements to the Remote Guarding system:
The camera will usually be night-capable. This means that it has special lighting which casts an invisible IR beam forward to the observation area. This allows the camera to amplify all available light—both visible and invisible—and record with clarity whilst any intruder is unaware that they are being filmed.
Aside from great quality pictures, the cameras can also capture sound. Of course, the more information the better, and marrying the crisp, amplified sound with night vision shots gives a major edge over any intruder.
The cameras are triggered by one of several motion detection systems. These range from 'local' sensors, such as IR motion sensors or ultrasonics, all the way to complex digital motion sensors in the recording equipment.
The sensors trigger recording for a period of time until motion ceases, and at the same time can be set to 'alert' remote monitoring stations of activity. This means that your site is 'manned' by guards remotely, who can then act on the information to contact police authorities to take over, providing them with crucial information such as descriptions of clothing, vehicles and points of entry.
The sensors can also trigger remote alarms, activate floodlights or even trigger internal alarms. The whole process is tailored for each individual and situation.
We conduct free, no-obligation on site surveys to suit you. Talking with you about what you want from the system, we tailor the initial brief accordingly. We then head back to the office and design a detailed and bespoke system based on your requirements, to fully optimise the layout of your site and to suit your budget. We then email, post or hand-deliver this proposal to you. This can even be completed on the same day!
We do not employ sales people – the person who visits is one of a small team of trained engineers with immense technical knowledge in surveillance systems. The advice we offer is open and honest and aims to give you the most appropriate system to suit your needs and no more. Surveillance should work for us, and we aim to design systems that are easy to use whilst employing the latest technology in IP HD cameras to give you peace of mind.
Once you have your proposal, feel free to come back to us and ask any and all questions you can think of. We can arrange a follow-up visit or telephone call to go through the design in detail.
Founded in 1998, we have over 20 years of experience designing and installing CCTV and security systems across a varied portfolio of different sites including agricultural sites, commercial and industrial premises and for the public sector. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail in every aspect of the design, installation and maintenance of our systems – contact us today to book your free quotation.
