Virtual Alarm System London
Construction sites in London are vulnerable to attack from criminals looking for an opportunity to steal or vandalise. Whether your site attracts thieves who are interested in the value of equipment or raw materials left lying around, or just youths trespassing on your site for entertainment, construction companies must take strong measures to lock down the perimeter of their project.
A virtual guard system is one of the most cost-effective and successful ways to secure your site and is easy to implement.
Benefits of Virtual Alarm Systems London Wide
As a premier location for redevelopment, construction companies based in the capital may have multiple sites in operation at the same time. Therefore, it’s important to come up with a security strategy to oversee your various works and ensure that thieves are being effectively deterred from trespassing across the boundary of your site.
Installing virtual guard services London wide across your sites means that your surveillance cameras will be monitored from a remote location for as many hours as you require.
Our trained professionals will watch your site and react in real-time to any incidents that occur. We can position security cameras to cover up to 1000m of your construction site or vacant properties. If the virtual alarm picks up an intrusion or trespasser, then the alarm will immediately be raised. After verifying the footage through our popular virtual guard system London product, a trained SIA responder will attend your site within minutes, usually backed up by the authorities.
Benefits of a Virtual Guard System Over A Manned Guard
Whilst a manned guard can be a deterrent to some intruders due to their physical presence, unfortunately humans come with flaws that could expose your construction site if you rely on them as your sole choice of monitoring. Here are some key reasons why you should opt for a virtual alarm system instead:
- Security guards can be late for work meaning that your site could be unprotected for several minutes.
- In the event that a manned guard is ill, either feeling under the weather whilst on the job, or calling in sick, this can leave you exposed until you find a replacement to patrol your site or vacant property.
- Your guard will be limited to their natural eye range. Not only are they unable to see in the dark, or look around corners, but they also can’t cover the same 1000m span that our virtual alarm surveillance cameras will oversee.
- Security guards don’t necessarily patrol in all weathers, whereas our remote stations will remain fully operational in sunshine, rain or snow.
The Cost of our Virtual Guard Services London Wide
If you’re interested in making the switch to our virtual alarm solution, you could make significant savings in comparison to using a manned guard. Typically, our virtual guard system is 80% cheaper than a physical security guard who might cost £1,000 a week based on 123 hours work. The exact cost of your virtual alarm system London service will depend on how many hours of the week you wish our trained professionals to monitor your site for, along with how many sites you wish us to cover. Our virtual guard system can be armed and disarmed at a schedule that suits you.
