Farsight’s CCTV monitoring operators remain ever vigilant during these unprecedented times, protecting thousands of premises across the UK. CCTV audio warnings can be an effective deterrent as part of any security system. In October 2020 Farsight’s CCTV operators issued a staggering 7,209 audio deterrent warnings and escalated 801 intruder related incidents to ‘blue light’ emergency services and keyholders – resulting in double the amount of arrests compared to the same period last year.
What is a CCTV Audio Warning?
When your CCTV cameras detect unwanted visitors on your premises, Farsight’s remote CCTV operators receive a notification.
A Farsight CCTV operator then patrols the cameras on the site and issues a live audio warning announcement as a deterrent.
The audio warning announcement is transmitted to the site…
WARNING. THIS IS PRIVATE PROPERTY. YOU ARE BEING MONITORED ON CCTV. PLEASE LEAVE OR THE POLICE WILL BE NOTIFIED
…to deter the unwanted visitors from progressing any further – before committing theft or criminal damage to your property.
