Remote CCTV monitoring services provide you with peace of mind. And with Farsight monitoring your CCTV systems you can feel reassured that you have a 24/7 security solution in place that’s managed by highly skilled personnel.

Remotely monitored CCTV deters intruders and immediate action is always taken to minimise both risk and damage. With unmonitored CCTV, footage can only be reviewed retrospectively: after the damage has been done.

There are up to 5.9 million CCTV cameras in the UK – make yours one of the effective ones with remote monitoring from Farsight.

How do remote CCTV monitoring services work?

Remote CCTV monitoring is simple:

  1. Your Internet connection routes the CCTV images from cameras at your site over the web to our servers at the Farsight Observatory.
  2. The connection between your security system and the Farsight Observatory can be live at all times or automatically switched on at the end of the working day.
  3. Our software monitors activity. As soon as an alarm is activated on your site, the incident is routed to the screen of one of our security professionals.
  4. Our professional operators will then monitor activity manually. We can pan and zoom cameras, switch cameras for a better view, and rerun recent footage.

If we identify a risk to your site we react immediately:

We call the emergency services
We call you (if that’s what you want)
And we communicate with intruders via loudspeaker.

Nine times out of ten our loudspeaker warning is enough to drive the intruders away.

But because we’re describing live events, the emergency services will react regardless. If it were a static alarm signal, without any visual verification, the incident may be deprioritised.

Why choose Farsight Security Services?

Everything we do is fully transparent. You can log on to our system, using YourSight, at any time to see what’s going on at your premises and at our remote monitoring station.

By combining the records on YourSight with the reports we issue you can start to see hidden patterns in security incidents. Are night-shift staff propping open fire doors? Is there a particular time of night favoured by intruders? And what is their preferred route into your site?

We go beyond the industry standards here at Farsight and continually work towards achieving and maintaining accreditation. Find out more about the standards we set.
