The last 50 years has seen explosive growth and change in the security industry. Yet, out of all these advancements, perhaps none has been quite as freeing as the ability to remotely connect to a security system.

Remote connectivity allows for a higher level of connection between business owners and the businesses they strive to protect that simply wasn’t sustainable—or even attainable—previously.

This article highlights six key benefits of remote security installation for businesses.

1. Remote Viewing Capabilities

Gone are the days of needing a direct physical connection to your security camera in order to view footage (live or otherwise). Remote viewing capabilities allow you to check in on your business at any time, from any place that has an internet connection. You could be in the building you’re monitoring or you could be halfway around the world; as long as your internet connection is strong, remote viewing allows you to stay connected to what’s going on at your business.

Remote viewing allows you to share the load with your security team and with third-party monitoring services, ensuring someone is able to get eyes on your property whenever activity is happening that shouldn’t be.

2. Remote Control Capabilities

Depending on the remote-capable security tech you’ve employed, you’ll be able to do any of the following from just about anywhere in the world:

Adjust cameras

Cameras such as pan, tilt, zoom cameras can be adjusted remotely as the situation calls for it. This is particularly useful when following a perpetrator or a situation as you can pan to follow, tilt to improve the angle, and zoom in for a clearer picture of what’s going on.

Control access

Access control systems can be very effective when it comes to keeping people out, but what about letting the right people in? Remotely controlled access control (especially when combined with a remotely viewed camera feed) allows you to make the important decision of who to let in (and who to keep out) even when you’re not actually in the building.

Activate lights and loudspeakers

Mobile security units, which allow remote viewing via their cameras, take it a step further with lights and loudspeakers. Flashing lights, flood lights, sirens, and two-way speakers all send a very clear message to wrong-doers: “Your actions have not gone unnoticed. Leave now and don’t cause any additional problems.”

3. Improved Response Times

Remote viewing combined with advanced detection capabilities makes it so you and your team are notified if things aren’t as they should be. You can check on situations immediately, allowing you to react to situations as they unfold. In the case of a crime, you can contact law enforcement right away (and their response times are significantly faster for a crime in-progress than for a crime that has already been committed).

With a mobile security unit, you can take these alerts a step further by warning the wrongdoer with lights and loudspeakers that they are being watched and had better stop doing what they’re doing.

4. Complete Coverage

Remote-enabled security systems allow you to have eyes on your property at all times and from all angles. Mobile security units in particular give an added layer of protection in more ways than one: units like the LVT Unit can be moved, are large and obvious (so deter criminals), and protect the entrance of the business, helping to screen issues before they make it inside.

5. Virtual Storage and Retrieval

Remote security solutions typically have the advantage of being connected to the cloud for storage. LVT, for example, is cloud native, meaning it isn’t just adapted to the cloud but actually built for it. Cloud video surveillance allows you to easily store and access relevant footage. Even more importantly, it allows you to easily share that footage as needed in the case of an incident.

6. Cost Savings

IP cameras are significantly less expensive than a full team of security guards watching the property day and night. Paired with the right software, these cameras are even more efficient than guards when it comes to detecting threats and unusual behaviors.

Remote security options like LVT Units also save money in other areas as well by removing the need for costly infrastructure.

Mobile Security Units: The Best Remote Has to Offer

LiveView Technologies offers a great use of remote technology: the mobile security unit. Designed to operate without relying on external power sources or being stuck in one place, LVT Units can be deployed within minutes and can be operated from anywhere in the world. Equipped with remote-connected cameras, loudspeakers, and lights, LVT Units are a great addition to any security situation, whether you need coverage for your remote location or your bustling retail parking lot.
