The critical factor in effective use of the remote video guard patrol is clear criteria in what actions to take in various conditions. Instructions to "report anything suspicious" is not going to be effective since people's ideas of what is suspicious are not the same and it may be very specific to a situation and location.
Examples of effective specific action may include:
- Report to call list any persons on site between the hours of 10PM and 6AM
- Instruct anyone loitering to move on and, if they fail to do so in 90 seconds, dispatch the police
- Send email to contact list if a package is deposited to front porch or removed by someone not entering the home
Urban Alarm will work with you to determine if this method of security will be effective in addressing your needs and to define effective processes and procedures.
