On-Site Multi-Monitor Display

The Command Center Approach

Dedicated Security Rooms: Surveillance command centers are equipped with multi-monitor setups that provide a comprehensive view of all security camera feeds simultaneously.

Real-Time Oversight: Security personnel observe live footage to make immediate decisions and enact swift responses to unwanted activities.

Smartphone and Desktop Apps

How to Remotely View Security Cameras Using the Internet

Remote Access: With intuitive smartphone and desktop apps, viewing security cameras remotely is possible on your phone or desktop computer anytime, anywhere.

Camera system apps for remote access provide a detailed view of your surveillance footage by leveraging in-depth monitoring tools and functionalities.

Alerts and Notifications: CCTV monitoring apps not only enable access to live video, they can also send automatic alerts for preprogrammed triggers, such as motion detected in closed-off areas and perimeter breaches.

User-Friendly Interfaces: While phone apps are user-friendly, desktop apps operate on larger screens, allowing users to monitor live feeds while reviewing recorded footage or other security data.

Remote Monitoring Services

Viewing Security Cameras Remotely

When you need continuous monitoring, a remote security monitoring service is a smart investment.

Guards inside remote monitoring command rooms access security footage and other security data via the Internet to keep watch over distant sites and initiate effective responses during incidents.

What’s more, these services apply AI-based video analytics to incoming footage, enabling turbocharged, superhuman monitoring that misses no suspicious detail.

With AI spotting unusual events and behaviors, fewer guards are needed in monitoring control rooms, thereby reducing personnel expenses for remote monitoring services and overall expenses for the customers that use them.

Access to Recorded Footage

Network Video Recorders (NVRs)

Centralized Storage: NVRs store high-quality digital video streams from IP cameras. They serve as a centralized repository for surveillance footage.

Easy Retrieval: With NVRs, you can quickly access recorded footage using filters, a crucial tool for timely investigations and reviews of past events.

Video Management Systems (VMSes)

Advanced Monitoring: VMSes combine live monitoring with advanced features such as analytics to provide a deeper view of your security landscape.

Scalability and Customization: Because VMS solutions are software-based, they can be expanded for additional cameras and customized to meet specific needs.
