Thieves, adapting to the changing nature of the market, are getting more sophisticated.
In an ongoing effort to keep businesses secure, we present eight best practices for outside perimeter protection using remote video monitoring.
Perform regular walk tests to check the performance of detectors (video analytics, radar, motion detector, etc.).
Ensure that all individuals entering the secured perimeter during surveillance hours have a means of disarming. (mobile application, remote control, access control, pin code, etc.)
If using remote video monitoring AI, check that the lighting is adequate and add a second light source if necessary. We strongly advise against the use of built-in infrared on the camera.
Make certain that no elements obstruct the cameras’ fields of view. (branches, flags, spider webs, dirt, etc.)
If the perimeter is protected by a fence, ensure that it is undamaged.
Add warning signs indicating that the site is protected with 24-7 surveillance.
Check the Voice Talk Down’s audio regularly by conducting a test with your central.
Verify that strong locks are used for gates and storage areas.
To help monitor the state of connected devices, uptime monitoring tools automate the collection and analysis of data from infrastructure components such as security cameras, access system door controllers, intrusion systems, and more. This expedites the process of locating the source of performance issues and ensures the seamless operation of remote video monitoring.
