CCTV Monitoring

CCTV monitoring is a proactive security solution to protect people, property and assets.

How can CCTV monitoring help to prevent loss or damage to your property or assets and ensure the safety of your people?

Is CCTV Monitoring A Solution For Any Business?

CCTV monitoring connects your business, locations, and assets to a professional Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) and a team of experienced security operatives who will perform various tasks for your protection and peace of mind. It offers a 24/7/365 security service that can reduce substantial costs to your business by providing a proactive and efficient alternative security solution.

Corps Monitoring has extensive history in protecting businesses and individuals from the threat of assailants looking to gain access to property and infiltrate valuable assets thus putting your employees and key stakeholders at risk in the process.

According to the latest report by the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW), from the year to June 2023, robberies increased by 11%. The rise has been an ongoing trend since 2020, and it can be attributed to the current cost-of-living crisis and the poor economic climate that has exacerbated it. As people become more desperate, it is vital to consider whether your business could be a target.

Overall, criminal damage and trespass have reduced, providing a glimmer of hope that the prevention of such crimes is having a positive impact.

CCTV monitoring is one of the most cost-effective and efficient counter-measures to avert attacks on your business. Most businesses will have a functioning CCTV system and connecting most of these systems to our ARC is relatively straightforward. However, it is always advisable to ensure your system is CCTV monitoring ready. Please get in touch if you are unsure or would like professional advice.

When was the last time you had a security review? Have you considered whether CCTV monitoring may be a suitable solution for you? Do you know the difference between CCTV Sensor Activated Monitoring and CCTV Live Surveillance solutions? Have you considered linking your Intruder Alarm Monitoring and Fire Alarm Monitoring to one professional monitoring solution? If you cannot answer these questions, consider a consultation to review your security provision and ensure you do not become the latest statistic.

How Do I Know If My System Is Suitable For CCTV Monitoring?

Most modern CCTV for business is suitable for CCTV monitoring, but it is always worth consulting a professional company to ensure your system is compatible. CCTV monitoring adapts your security from a reactive (recording to a digital video recorder) to a proactive monitored security service. One of the key benefits includes audible pre-recorded or live announcements to let criminals know they are being monitored. It is not uncommon for this function to be unavailable on some older CCTV systems.

In light of the upcoming switch from Public Switched Telephone Network to digital VoIP services by December 2025, as reported by Ofcom, it is worth checking to see if you have a legacy system that relies on this network. This is rare with CCTV monitoring services, but it would be advisable to check your Intruder and Fire Alarm Monitoring if you have it as it is widely considered to be the most affected.

    Protecting Homes And Individuals

    Corps Monitoring is a leading purveyor in one of the most significant growth areas in CCTV monitoring: protecting people’s homes and personal assets. Recently, there has been a rise in prominent robberies and criminal attacks on high-profile and high-net-worth individuals. Those in the public eye, such as politicians, footballers, actors, CEOs and prominent C-Suite board members are particularly at risk.

    At Corps Monitoring, our CCTV monitoring services, as well as Intruder and Fire Alarm monitoring, are equally designed to protect individuals and offer the highest level of personal protection. Our services guarantee industry-leading data protection, discretion and anonymity as standard and conform with all current GDPR laws. Our team broached the subject in a recent blog – “Why Adding CCTV Alarm Monitoring To Your Christmas List Is A Good Idea.”

    “The Corps Monitoring control room operatives are so helpful when our engineers are on site. With other monitoring providers, it’s been a case of the engineer doing their work and telling the ARC to press a button when their work is finished, but that’s not the case with Corps. They help our engineers at every step and the high-end technology that Corps Monitoring deploys makes connections quick, easy and very simple.  We all have peace of mind that the system is installed correctly, and Corps Monitoring are picking up the signal. Corps Monitoring gives me great confidence. When a customer has an alarm sound through the night and they speak to Corps Monitoring, they are met with a personal touch and our customer comes off the phone knowing that they’re looked after. I can rest assured our customers are in safe hands. I know Corps Monitoring won’t let us down.”

    AI And The Future Of CCTV Monitoring

    CCTV monitoring services benefit from advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Corps Monitoring was one of the first professional CCTV monitoring companies to adopt the new technology into our ARC systems. AI and ML solutions are available to customers with modern installed CCTV systems — get in touch to see if your system complies with the requirements — and offer advanced identification and tracking solutions hundreds of times more powerful than the human eye.

    In addition, through ML and recorded analytics, the ARC systems constantly learn about assailant behaviours to predict next moves and potential additional threats they may impose, which can be processed faster than the human brain. It is important to note that new technologies only work to their full potential when combined with human intuition. The AI vs human debate has been rife across the sector for some time, as fears mounted that technology would begin to replace operatives over time. Corps Monitoring addressed the debate recently in a blog – “The AI In Security Debate: What Is The Future For CCTV Monitoring?”

    At Corps Monitoring, our team see the collaboration between technology and humans as the future of security and will continue to adopt solutions that benefit our customers and broader society. You can learn more about AI and ML in our CCTV Monitoring blog – “Artificial Intelligence In Security Monitoring; There’s Nowhere To Hide.”

    Choosing The Right CCTV Monitoring Company

    There are many considerations when choosing a company to provide CCTV monitoring. The security industry is highly regulated, and all ARC operatives should be fully licensed Security Industry Authority CCTV Operatives. While this is the industry standard, Corps Monitoring is pleased to offer our operatives additional upskilling and virtual reality training via our award-winning MOONHUB training.

    The standards applied to CCTV Monitoring companies are fundamental. Our ARC is NSI Gold accredited, for which we are incredibly proud. Our average response times are less than 20 seconds, well under the NSI Gold requirement, which stipulates that 80% of CCTV alerts must be responded to within 90 seconds and 98.5% within 180 seconds. Any responsible business in the sector should be proud to demonstrate and share their response times to allow you to make an educated decision on the most appropriate supplier for you.

    Corps Monitoring is also certified to the following British Standards: BS 5979, BS 8418, BS 8484 and ISO 9001:2015 certified, and we hold a firm belief that this is the minimum standard you should expect from a CCTV Monitoring provider.
