The security industry as we now know it began with the implementation of alarm-based entry-detection sensors. Once tripped, the sensors would set off an alarm, and the surveillance company would subsequently alert the police to the potential threat. Typically, by the time the police arrive at the location, a costly amount of damage would have already been done.
The Onset of Video Surveillance
With the increased prevalence of video surveillance came the addition of analog video cameras to those alarms. Analog cameras recorded onto tapes had a tendency to fill up and wear out quickly due to overuse. The introduction of motion-only recording alleviated these problems to a certain extent, but surveillance was still primarily used as a record to review after an incident rather than a proactive tool to prevent crime.
The Digital Age
With the invention of digital technology, more footage could be recorded, the images were clearer, and the ease of review skyrocketed. More video cameras were installed in public places and digital video surveillance cameras continued to become more and more technologically advanced. Despite technological advances, these systems relied on sensors to alert them of security breaches. The security industry remained primarily reactive.
Stealth Monitoring has taken the next logical and technological step with live video monitoring. By utilizing remote proactive video monitoring at anytime, there is a much better chance that dangerous activity can be minimized before the situation gets out of hand. Web-based technology makes communication between property managers, monitoring personnel, and local police as efficient as possible.
Stealth Monitoring provides live, proactive surveillance by trained personnel to help keep your property protected.
