Live remote monitoring vs. unmonitored static CCTV:
When video footage is left unattended without any professional monitoring, you are having to take action after an incident has occurred and, very often, the damage has already been done.
Live CCTV Monitoring which is remotely monitored in real time will drastically reduce the risk, threat and criminal activity. This is active crime prevention and our team of highly skilled and reactive personnel will take immediately action 24/7 when there is a threat or emergency.
Why DS Security Remote Monitoring?
We use our cameras to perform visual tours, deliver audio challenges to unwanted visitors and we issue warning messages through site speakers.
If required, we can use our direct links with emergency services to sanction a response. Your assets are safe in our hands.

Unlike a human being, cameras don’t get tired or fatigued and can record footage throughout the day. So be it in broad daylight or during the night, CCTV cameras placed on the inside and the outside of a commercial establishment can keep an eye on everything that’s going on.
Security professionals typically work in coordinated shifts at the remote monitoring station, leading to more efficient and effective supervision.
CCTV cameras are generally installed along the perimeter of a building or complex and they are meant to record everything that goes on in and around all the potential entry and exit points. Installing visible cameras at these points plays a huge part in discouraging individuals and groups from committing criminal acts
PTZ cameras have become one of the most popular types of CCTV cameras in recent times due to panning, tilting, and zooming capabilities.
Thanks to these features, a single camera can be used to cover a large area, greatly reducing security costs for businesses.
Modern-day CCTV cameras have the capability to capture videos in HD, which ensures clear images that can be zoomed without significant pixelation, which can often be the difference between identifying potential criminals and not being able to identify them due to poor image quality.
Even the most stringent security measures may not be enough to stop desperate people from carrying out criminal activities. However, remote surveillance makes timely intervention possible.
As soon as a threat is detected, the security professionals in the remote monitoring station can get in touch with law enforcement authorities so that the perpetrators can be caught red-handed.
There is a difference between potential crime and one that has already been committed. By synchronizing with a business’ on-site audio systems, remote surveillance agencies can issue warnings to potential perpetrators.
On many occasions, such warnings are enough to prevent crimes. But in case they are not enough, stricter action can be taken by making swift contact with law enforcement authorities.
Installing ten cameras on the premises of a business is better than employing ten security guards from a price perspective.
While the initial investments on the cameras would be significant, businesses don’t have to pay monthly salaries that they would have to if human security guards are employed.
Apart from reducing the risks of crime and disasters, remote surveillance systems also put employees under pressure to perform better.
Indoor surveillance can help owners of commercial establishments to identify employees whose performances are consistently poor. The risks of an employee stealing from a business or damaging business property are also greatly reduced.
A business that has a surveillance system set up is more likely to earn the trust of its customers than a similar business without any kind of surveillance.
As soon as customers spot CCTVs in place, they feel comforted. The presence of remote surveillance systems can also prevent crimes such as shoplifting.
Before video surveillance measures became so advanced, numerous businesses installed alarm systems that were meant to go off if unusual sounds were detected.
However, such alarm systems are not always effective, as they tend to ring out loudly even if they detect noise generated by the wind. Such false positives can make it incredibly frustrating for security professionals to do their work.
In this regard, remote surveillance systems work much more effectively.
