Video Verification and How it Can Improve Your Business

by | Apr 28, 2017 | Blog, Safety

If you own or operate a business and are not sure what video verification is, you need to know. Video verification is an easy way to save time, money, and increase security.

 “Video Verification is the use of Captured Video or real-time video in which the video information or recording is aligned with the action that initiated an alarm event to assist in determining the protocol to be followed for the alarm event.” – Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA)

This makes video verification a step up from video surveillance.

Live video is viewed from our Customer Care Center, where we verify what is occurring at your business or location. We look for threats such as temperature change, sparks flying, smoke, or a suspicious person. Then, we can either provide a snapshot of the view in question and send it to the chain of command, or dispatch police.

With a basic system it is possible that an alert is a false alarm. With Video Verification, we verify whether or not the alarm is a threat or not by checking the recorded video. This saves a lot of money on false alarm fees and keeps police from dispatching to unnecessary alerts.

Virtual Guard Tours

Video Verification also includes special features such as Virtual Guard Tours. Virtual Guard Tours gives SEi access to cameras that we audit at designated times. Instead of security guards walking around a business premises, we can view the site using the camera system and logging in via our Customer Care Center computers.

This is not only an efficient use of time, but could reduce if not eliminate the need for security guards entirely; saving you money and providing a more reliable and quicker response time.

What is great about SEi is everything can be customized to fit your needs.  From the frequency you want cameras checked to the number of cameras viewed, to what you want us to specifically look for, we will personalize the solution to your needs.  We can do any size business at any location. Currently, we monitor over 400 cameras worldwide.

Other benefits include:

  • Saving money on insurance
  • Reduces chance of accidents
  • Faster response time
  • Reports available for previous day’s activity
  • Less intrusive than security guards
  • More affordable than security guards
  • Flexible for any type of customer

For business owners and managers, video verification offers next level security for any type of building. Get the right equipment before an emergency happens. We will work with you to get the kind of surveillance that fits your needs.
