Commercial building contracts are forecast to amount to more than 80 percent of the $400 million remote monitoring services industry for intelligent buildings by 2016, according to a study by IMS Research (now part of IHS Inc.).
This represents a shift away from traditional guard services and toward live video monitoring services, which speaks to the success and cost-effectiveness of the industry. In addition to being an efficient crime deterrent, an off-site video monitoring service such as Stealth Monitoring’s greatly reduces the costs associated with both internal staffing and general operations.
IHS explained that remote monitoring service providers have found success by first proving the value of their systems in trial runs that demonstrated a clear return on investment before expanding the application of their services. And as the market in commercial and retail buildings continues to develop, they predict that education, government, data centers, and hospitality will likely follow suit.
At the forefront of the video surveillance industry, Stealth Monitoring is a leading provider of live video monitoring services. While tradition alarm-based CCTV systems are not effective in preventing criminal acts, the proactive approach taken by Stealth has proven effective in deterring crime and getting local police on the scene as quickly as possible. In addition, our remote video monitoring services cost as much as 90% less than the average annual salary of a live guard.
