Thermal cameras can create virtual perimeter fencing to detect an intruder before they get near the assets being protected. Fixed cameras can provide asset specific protection for gates, connex (storage) box, high value equipment and materials, etc. A Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) camera can be controlled remotely by our monitoring agents for the purpose of following an intruder. A PTZ can also be programed to take “tours” at regular intervals with its home position set for the most optimum view of your site.
Remote monitoring centers are set up with multiple “guards” (operators, agents) watching a limited # of cameras each and if one operator has 16 cameras and 2 of those go into alarm, another operator will take over monitoring of 14 cameras so that the 1st guy can deal with the alarm situation on the other two. With multiple operators in the center along with supervisors to step in as needed, it unlikely that anything will be missed.
Remote monitoring agents are closely supervised and made to take frequent breaks to keep them alert in the middle of the day or night.
