What is REMOTE GUARD &
how it's your Best Resource in Security
Remote Guard gives you: Instant Notification and Eliminates FALSE ALARMS
VERIFY SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY & FALSE ALARMS AT HIGH-RESOLUTION
With Remote guard our monitoring center can receive video alarms and verify suspicious activity promptly. Operators receive an alert as soon as movement is detected and can view your alarm event immediately at up to 3.1 Megapixel resolution.
SUPERIOR DETECTION METHODS
The Remote guard system can detect alarms at your premises in a variety of ways:
Standard infrared movement detection. PIRs are built in to select MOBOTIX models and are also available as an add-on across the
MOBOTIX range. Avigilon range and some Bosch models.
Advanced decibel detection. Decibel thresholds are monitored via the MOBOTIX built-in microphone (available in select models).
Movement detected in specific areas of the monitored scene via the MOBOTIX camera lens.
Movement detected when a specific sequence of events occurs e.g. only cars ‘leaving’ the car park trigger an alarm.
Remote GUARD can be configured to continuously record and only report alarm events to our monitoring center at certain times of the day or week. For example, only after hours and on weekends.
STREAMLINED PROCESS FOR OPERATORS
When an alarm is received by Fivestar monitoring center it has a short video clip attached, taken at the time the alarm was triggered. The operator can view the footage and determine what caused the alarm or access the cameras at your site in real-time to gain further clarification as to what triggered the alarm. Verified alarms can reduce the costs associated with false alarms and can result in faster alarm actioning, which will enable faster response times from the authorities.
Patrol Man That Is Always On Site
NO WAITING FOR GUARD TO ARRIVE
In the event of an alarm, or when a routine patrol needs to be carried out at your premises, there is no better way to ensure site security than with Remote guard virtual patrols. Virtual patrols can be conducted upon request, at pre-determined intervals established by you or at random. When an alarm is detected, virtual patrols can help operators determine its cause, and decrease response times from the authorities when suspicious activity is sighted, and a genuine threat is detected.
PATROLLING OPTIONS DESIGNED FOR YOU
Multi-view - multiple cameras are viewed simultaneously through one intuitive split-screen display. This option allows a quick overview of your site and is very cost-effective. It's perfect for ensuring operators don’t miss any activity when patrolling many camera views.
Walk-through - the operator scans every camera view one by one, just like a physical guard would do, zone by zone. You can choose how long you would like them to view each area before moving on to the next. The operator can also stay on a certain camera if abnormal activity is detected. Walk through patrols are a cost saving alternative to physical and static guards.
NEED MORE SECURITY, BUT LESS ACCESS?
Secure areas such as sterile medical labs, volatile storage areas, bank vaults etc. all require more monitoring than they can afford to receive from a physical guard. That’s where Remote GUARD comes in. Monitoring center operators can regularly patrol secure areas without setting a foot inside them. Remote guard is the perfect solution for secure areas that need a high level of monitoring without the physical aspect.
DETER WOULD-BE INTRUDERS
The two-way-voice and microphone built into select MOBOTIX cameras allows operators to communicate with anyone visible at site, allowing them to warn and deter any would-be intruders before the damage is done.
REDUCE YOUR SECURITY COSTS
Virtual patrols are a cost-effective alternative to physical guards because they are time and data billed and require less time and effort to ensure your site is secure. Another cost-effective factor when considering Remote guard is that data usage can be minimized by quality of image. Operators can initially view footage at a slower frame rate or lower resolution, thus reducing bandwidth usage and costs. If suspicious activity or movement is detected, operators can
then view the footage at a higher framerate or resolution to determine details of the scenario.
Remote GUARD virtual patrols are the smart and inexpensive way to ensure your site security is always at its optimum.
GET MORE OUT OF YOUR MONITORING CENTER
Remote guard enables your monitoring center operators to provide real-time video verification of alarms, perform remote virtual patrols and give remote site access to authorised personnel. For them, the task is easy, as the Remote guard software module installed on their workstation is integrated seamlessly with their regular day-to-day alarm automation software. For you, this means better service and faster responses to events.
IT'S YOUR CHOICE
You get to decide where, when and how your site is monitored. Remote GUARD can monitor different cameras or areas at different times of the day or week. You also get to decide what Remote GUARD should be monitoring – simple movement using a PIR, movement in certain parts of the frame, audio levels or a combination of detection methods using the MOBOTIX event processing algorithms.
PART TIME ON-SITE MONITORING
Remote GUARD, thanks to MOBOTIX, is compatible with MxControlCenter, a software monitoring system for viewing live and recorded images from MOBOTIX cameras. This means you can have security staff monitor on-site during work hours and cut costs by switching to Remote guard after hours. You can have all the advantages of remote monitoring while having direct access to your cameras and NAS systems for event playback.
The reporting capabilities of the Remote guard software module provide you with detailed reports on site patrols, camera access times, data usage and operator notes. All this information is available to you; it’s automated & transparent.
