Video monitoring takes your video surveillance system to the next level by giving you the opportunity to react in the moment rather than respond to something that happened yesterday by going back to watch a video.
You may believe that video monitoring is the best option, but you may not have the circumstance to hire a full-time staff for taking care of this process in-house. Or you may not be able to keep security staff on hand when your offices are closed.
If you want the peace of mind to focus on your business rather than worrying about the safety of your staff and building, outsourcing your video monitoring system is a great option. You get all of the protection of video monitoring at a fraction of the price it would cost to perform the work in-house.

If you have in-house monitoring during the day or feel it is not needed when your building is full of employees, you can still available yourself of the service in the evenings or at other times the offices are closed. This gives you all of the security while limiting costs to paying for exactly what you need and nothing more.
Protect Employees, Protect Your Company
