Our live security camera monitoring is real-time observation of surveillance camera feeds by trained personnel to detect and respond to security incidents if needed. This proactive approach to security provides several benefits, and while it may not necessarily "stop" crime, it can significantly deter, prevent, or mitigate criminal activities on a property. Here are some key points and statistics supporting the effectiveness of live security camera monitoring:

1. Deterrence Effect:​

o Benefit: Visible security cameras, flashing lights, and microphone act as a deterrent to potential criminals, as the presence of surveillance implies an increased risk of detection and apprehension.

o    Statistical Insight: A study by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte found that the presence of surveillance cameras led to a significant reduction in crime. In some cases, the reduction was as high as 51%.


2.  Evidence Collection for Prosecution:

o Benefit: Recorded footage from live monitoring can serve as valuable evidence for law enforcement investigations and prosecution.

o Statistical Insight: The Urban Institute reports that surveillance cameras have been effective in solving crimes, with video footage serving as a crucial tool for identifying and apprehending suspects.


3. Increased Security Awareness:

o  Benefit: Live monitoring creates an environment where potential wrongdoers are aware that their actions are being watched, leading to increased caution and a reduced likelihood of criminal behavior.

o Statistical Insight: A study published in the Criminal Justice Policy Review found that areas with visible surveillance cameras experienced a decrease in crime rates due to the heightened perception of being under surveillance.


4. Cost-Effective Security:

o Benefit: Live camera monitoring can be a cost-effective security solution compared to physical on-site security personnel, especially for large or remote properties.

o Statistical Insight: The Electronic Security Association notes that the installation of surveillance cameras can result in a return on investment (ROI) through reduced security costs and losses.

While specific statistics may vary based on factors such as location, property type, and security measures in place, the general consensus is that live security camera monitoring contributes significantly to crime prevention and mitigation. The combination of deterrence, immediate response, and evidence collection makes it a valuable tool in enhancing the overall security posture of a property.
