Avigilon CCTV monitoring


As a leading independent Remote Video Receiving Centre (RVRC) in the UK, Farsight values its long standing professional relationship with the Avigilon range of products.  Maintaining the high standards in remote monitoring that we are renowned for is largely dependent on the quality of the systems that we work with and our ongoing ability to monitor a diverse range CCTV systems that are installed at our clients’ premises across the UK by our network of security system installers.  Simply, Avigilon is a brand we trust.

Farsight works extremely hard to stay at the cutting edge of security systems, software and technology innovation to continue to position Farsight at the sharp end of the remote security monitoring sector in the UK.  Joel Babb, Farsight’s CTO says this about Avigilon:

“Avigilon is a polished high-end security solution. When Avigilon released ACC Server and Client it was game-changing.  Now the ability to combine external monitoring with the on-site capabilities of ACC Client and its features, like Appearance Search and Facial Recognition, means our customers have the best of both worlds when it comes to meeting their security objectives.”
