Remote Security

Secure your site and operations with remote security that combines technology with response. Specialists within our Securitas Operations Centre monitor CCTV and alarm systems 24/7 to identify threats and respond appropriately. Remote security can also protect your lone workers and valuable assets and be used to manage entry and exit points.

Suitable for sites of every size

Remote security is a cost-effective way to protect any aspect of your operation that could be vulnerable to intruders, criminal damage, or other threats such as fire.

If an alarm is triggered or untoward activity observed on CCTV, officers at our Securitas Operations Centre (SOC) will assess the risk and take appropriate action. The response may be an audible warning to deter would-be intruders (via the surveillance camera system, if fitted with this feature), or we might despatch a Mobile Security team to investigate further. In the event of a fire or large-scale disturbance we will alert the emergency services and direct them to the scene. Remote security offers more than just peace of mind:

Other applications for remote security

As well as monitoring CCTV and alarm systems at your site, the SOC will respond to alerts from lone worker alarms or trackers on high value goods or equipment. The GPS on these devices enable us to direct Mobile Security crews to an individual needing help, or to trace the whereabouts of stolen assets.

Remote security can enhance your operations, by controlling access and exit points by identifying (via CCTV) those who are authorised to be there. The data gathered can also be used to extract insight and intelligence, for example about the movement of people around the site or key vulnerabilities.
