Remote surveillance camera monitoring is part of $85 billion global security guard and monitoring service market, according to the Security Magazine article How Remote Monitoring Can Combine Services and Surveillance. Live surveillance takes advantage of high definition video cameras and Internet connectivity.
Additionally remote surveillance camera manufacturers and service providers like Stealth Monitoring provide intelligence through video analytics and automated monitoring and alerting. This technology improves the detection of motion in the remote video field and service of remote camera and network equipment. These video efficiencies bring down overall security costs for enterprise security managers and shopping center and commercial property owners. Remote video surveillance cameras with live video monitoring can reduce live on-site security guards and other personnel, as well as related expenses like benefits, uniforms, vehicles, and office space.
According to the article, "when you combine remote video surveillance concepts with basic guarding and monitoring, service costs can be dramatically reduced without lowering the service quality. Some examples of basic guarding operations that can be replaced with remote video surveillance services are: remote identification and verification, remote tours, remote escorts and remote customer service via kiosk-like systems."
Fairfield is located between San Francisco and Sacramento in northern California. Fairfield was founded in 1856 by ship captain Robert Waterman. It was named after his former hometown of Fairfield, Connecticut. Fairfield is the home of Travis Air Force Base and Jelly Belly jelly beans.
