Moreover, the service also aids with keeping your CCTV system functioning correctly by reporting camera issues promptly to aid with limiting downtime of your CCTV system.

Monitored CCTV Camera Surveillance that you can rely on

CCTV Monitoring Specialists

CCTV monitoring provides security surveillance to protect you, your business, or your home from criminal activity. We use state of the art technology to react to emergencies rapidly, acting as a deterrent that effectively stops intruders. When you’re away, our remote monitoring can provide you with ultimate peace of mind. Integration with public address systems allows for personalised warnings to be given to intruders before a crime has been committed.

SSAIB Certified UK Monitoring Station
CCTV Monitoring from a UK Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC)

Our alarm receiving centre is based in the UK and operates to the following British standards:

  • BS 8591:2014′ Remote centres receiving signals from alarm systems.’
  • BS 5979:2007′ Remote centres receiving signals from fire and security systems.’ Code of practice
  • BS 8418:2015+A1:2017‘ ‘Installation and remote monitoring of detector-activated CCTV systems.’ Code of practice

The CCTV monitoring station works to react to emergencies, such as intruders or incidents such as fire emergencies at your site. In the event of an incident, an alarm signal is sent to the remote monitoring station, and the CCTV footage is displayed on the operator’s CCTV display screen. The CCTV operator can then assess the situation and bring up further cameras to be displayed or use panning and zooming of the cameras to get the best view of the incident. Once the operator understands what is happening, they can call the emergency services whilst watching the incident unfold to provide real-time information to the police or fire services. The remote monitoring service can be tailored for a bespoke reaction to an intruder or an incident. The aim is to stop incident occurring through intervention by a pre-agreed means such as:

  • Inform you as the customer
  • Use of loudspeakers with pre recorded message such as: “you are being recorded by CCTV and police have been called”
  • We contact the police when an intruder has been spotted through the remote CCTV monitoring software
  • We can also call the emergency services and inform the keyholder in the event of a fire or other emergency situation

What’s unique about our Remote CCTV Monitoring?

ClearView has extensive experience of a range of Perimeter Intrusion Detection methods, including:

  • Fence Detection: Microphonic Cable
  • Active IR Beams
  • Buried Copper or Fibre Cable

However, our primary detection method utilises CCTV video analytics. The sophisticated deep learning software removes up to 90% of false alarms, ensuring that our operators focus on real threats.

ClearView Remote Monitoring Processes

The process that we undertake to set up your remote monitoring through a CCTV monitoring station is as follows:

  • security risk assessment is carried to ascertain the threats and the vulnerabilities of the site so the correct CCTV system and type of CCTV monitoring can be specified.
  • Appropriate camera types and features are discussed with the client and then specified
  • The completed CCTV proposal is sent to the client; this will include detailed information on the camera types, locations and uses
  • When the security system is installed, the CCTV cameras are connected to the monitoring station via the internet. The images can then be viewed by the trained operatives that monitor your site 24/7 365 days per year or as the client requires
  • The system is then commissioned and tested as part of our quality assurance processes in accordance with our ISO 9001 Quality Management System
  • When an incident occurs and an alarm has activated the operatives at the ARC receive the camera images on their screen.
  • The operative will then proceed on agreed courses of action such as deterring the intruder by speaking through a public address system, calling the police or emergency services or inform the keyholder
  • Whilst the incident is occurring, the operative will provide real-time information to the keyholder, police or other emergency services as required

Home CCTV Monitoring

Remote Monitoring Access for Home Owners

Home CCTV monitoring on a mobile phone or tablet will typically involve a CCTV installation or set up with analytics to send push notifications when lines or zones are entered or crossed. The sensitivity and parameters for the notifications can be assessed as part of the security risk assessment process. ClearView will plan the bespoke monitoring requirements in detail to ensure that the right level of service is recommended and installed or commissioned.

Video Motion Analytics Alarms

Video motion analytics alarms from intelligent cameras are sent to our remote monitoring centre where our unique software filters out alarms caused by non-human and non-vehicle motion. It forwards valid alerts for screen verification by our operators who review alarms for threats. The deep learning algorithms learn and evolve with every camera reviewed, becoming more accurate over time.

The huge reduction in nuisance alarms that the technology provides allows our operators to monitor more sites with greater accuracy, reducing the cost of monitoring overall.

CCTV Monitoring Costs

It is important to note that CCTV costs and CCTV monitoring contracts are not as expensive as they once were. Cost-effective packages represent great value and peace of mind for protecting your people and your assets, and your home.

For remote CCTV monitoring provided by an ARC, there is usually a monthly cost that is written into a CCTV monitoring contract. The price will vary depending on the number and type of cameras and the kind of CCTV video analytics or the Perimeter Intrusion Detection methods used.

For home CCTV systems that are not looked after by a monitoring station, the remote monitoring cost is normally provided as part of the scope of works for the CCTV installation. In this scenario there is possibly no monthly costs unless you have a CCTV maintenance contract. However, this is something we highly recommend to keep your system in good working order, and maintenance contracts can start from as low as £99.00 per year for home CCTV systems.
