CCTV Monitoring


Continental Security can provide CCTV installation and maintenance with full documentation, including operation and maintenance manuals and drawings as required. Some security and surveillance systems may require a simple, off-the-shelf solution, others may encompass hundreds of cameras, be spread across a huge site or require special interfacing with other equipment. Our CCTV Systems are linked to our Alarm Receiving Centre and are able to monitor 24/7, 7 days a week.

CCTV monitoring services provide commercial properties, business locations and construction sites with a peace of mind security solution that doesn’t require the hiring of additional security staff around the clock. Monitored CCTV deters intruders through the implementation of audio warnings and ensuring immediate action is always taken, whether by contacting key holders or emergency services, to minimise both risk and damage to property and assets.

When using unmonitored CCTV in your business, recorded footage can only be retrospectively reviewed: after the damage has already occurred and the intruder has likely already left the area. If we identify risk to your site, we react immediately by:

  1. Contacting the emergency services.
  2. Deploying our Mobile Patrol Officers.
  3. We notify you (or the key holder, depending on your security instructions) and we communicate with intruders, sending audio warnings via loudspeaker.
  4. As our trained CCTV Officers are watching and reporting on live footage, emergency services will react immediately to investigate the issue. In comparison, if it was a static alarm signal, without any visual verification, the incident may be de-prioritised, leading to longer response times and an increased potential for damage or theft.
