4 Ways Monitoring Improves Commercial Surveillance Systems

Video surveillance is an excellent tool to protect your business, but live monitoring makes sure you’re protected 24/7

4 Ways Monitoring Improves Commercial Surveillance Systems

We’ve written quite a lot about the benefits of commercial video surveillance, and we firmly believe these systems can be very helpful in keeping your business secure. But there’s an important aspect of surveillance systems that often gets overlooked: video monitoring.

After all, you can have the most advanced surveillance system in the world, but if you don’t have somebody watching the feeds at all times, you may not be able to respond in time in the event of a break-in. Here are four ways that adding live monitoring can enhance the commercial video surveillance system for your business in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley.

As we just mentioned, having someone watching the feeds from your surveillance cameras is a crucial aspect of your security system. While having a record of everything happening around the exterior of your workspace is handy, it doesn’t help when someone is actively trying to break in.

With a monitoring service in place, you can rest easy knowing there’s always somebody keeping an eye on your business. Centralized systems make it simple to keep watch over every inch of your property, no matter what time of day.


Similarly, having police respond quickly in the event of an incident is vital when it comes to security systems. Situations can escalate quickly, and you want the best chance possible of catching the perpetrators. By having someone watching your business at all times, they can respond more quickly and get the authorities to your property in time for them to take action.


Security systems can and should protect you from more than just burglaries and other physical threats. Fires can be just as dangerous as an intruder, perhaps even more so. Your video surveillance plays a vital role in your security system. If you synch your cameras with other sensors in your business, your monitoring service provides vital evidence during these emergencies. All these dangers are serious threats that can be countered with live monitoring.


Many video cameras require an Internet connection to provide a live feed. But there may be times when you don’t have a strong enough connection to see what’s going on, or you may not have any connection at all. In those moments, you want to know you can still keep an eye on your business. Our monitoring services use cellular backup to provide that peace of mind.
