Remote Video Surveillance: The Future of the Security Industry
Perimeter security is a constant struggle for many commercial facilities, but does it have to be?
What if a security guard could send a picture of a suspicious car to a secure directory that would run the plates through the license plate recognition database? What if this system would also send the security guard an image of the driver’s license associated with that plate to the guard’s phone, crosschecking the person’s identity against current watch lists? How beneficial could this be for your organization’s security?
The above scenario is possible with today’s remote video surveillance technology. But that is just the beginning. Remote video surveillance allows the command center to observe video streaming from multiple locations to direct security personnel to a particular location or event. The Command center can then supply additional video content analysis to the field via mobile phones, assisting with the investigation with up-to-the-minute information.
Best of all, this technology is always improving.
Frequently Asked Questions about Remote Video Surveillance

- Does it hog Bandwidth? No. Remote video surveillance networks can handle video traffic streaming without hogging too much bandwidth.
- Is it really fast? Yes. The command center has the processing power to expedite searches, perform data analysis, and stream the results to mobile devices in real time.
- Does it have any other applications? Yes. There are two industries in particular that have utilized remote video streaming for an application other than security. The first, the medical field, has utilized remote video surveillance to transmit high-resolution resolution video and vital signs from ambulances to the emergency doctor on call at the hospital.
