When it comes to remote video monitoring for your commercial or residential business, there are several crucial factors to consider when choosing a service provider. As businesses increasingly rely on video surveillance and crime prevention to ensure the safety and security of their assets, staff, and guests, choosing the right remote monitoring service provider is crucial.
What Is Remote Video Monitoring?
Remote video monitoring is a proactive approach to security. Utilizing surveillance cameras, audio speakers, access control management, and other security infrastructure and technology, service providers can monitor a business for suspicious or criminal activity and intervene in real time.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advanced video analytics can alert Command Center Agents to motion or flagged activity. Agents then verify the event is not a false alarm and react based on protocols developed during your onboarding process.
Two-way audio speakers are an effective tool for Command Center Agents to remotely intervene in disturbances on your property. If there is suspicious loitering, a break-in, or other concerning behavior, Agents can issue Voice Commands to instruct trespassers to leave the premises to avoid a police response. Alternatively, audio speakers can be utilized to deliver customer service announcements.
In an event that cannot be resolved through two-way audio speakers, Command Center Agents can dispatch onsite Security Officers or report incidents to local law enforcement. Rather than discovering a break-in, vandalism, or other incident after it has already occurred, remote video monitoring can detect and respond to incidents before they occur or while they are in progress.

U.S.-Based Command Center Agents
All VirtuGuard™ Command Center Agents are based in the United States. Our Command Center Agents adhere to national and international regulations and industry standards. This can provide assurance that security practices and protocols adhere to industry standards, which will enhance the overall reliability and effectiveness of our security solutions.
Proactive vs. Reactive
VirtuGuard™ focuses on preventing incidents before they occur. Traditional security solutions often only react to incidents after damage, theft, or unwanted activity has already happened. Reactionary security measures can cost your business in damaged or stolen assets, property damage, or liability in the case of violent crimes.
By detecting activity before it escalates into a greater issue, VirtuGuard™ can effectively deter or intervene in crime. Prevention should be the first course of action, and VirtuGuard™ prioritizes preventing unwanted activity to save your business money, time, and headaches.
Detailed Analytics and Reporting
VirtuGuard™ delivers detailed reports of each incident that occurs at your business to keep you informed. Additionally, we provide monthly reports of the incidents that occur at your business, including information on how the incident was detected and how Command Center Agents responded. With these detailed analytics, VirtuGuard™ can also make recommendations to further secure your business.
VirtuGuard™ is a cost-effective security solution. The cost of an interactive remote monitoring plan is determined by a variety of factors, including the number of cameras being monitored on your property and the monthly activity level per camera. Additional services like remote tours and escorts, AI response, audio services, and more also contribute to the cost of our services.
Whereas the cost of traditional guard services can cost your business $20-30 an hour, VirtuGuard™ can cost as little as $8-10 an hour.
