Yes. CCTV acts a visible deterrent but is frequently of little value on its own. Hoodies, balaclavas, false number plates, poor lighting all contribute to images being of little value in many remote sites and it usually prohibitively expensive to place cameras so that all areas of a site can be under surveillance.
Tag Guard offers a unique integration between its TagAlarm and TagCam systems that overcomes many of these problems. The TagAlarm system detects the presence of an intruder the cameras, where fitted, are directed automatically to view this exact area within seconds. The control centre staff then have a significantly improved opportunity to see what has caused the activation and to take appropriate action.
When the alarm is first triggered the response is despatched and video information is also relayed to the guard going to site – so he is made aware of who is on site and where they might be.
