A new emerging service has been coming up lately. I believe it will become more prevalent in a shot period of time. That service is Remote Video Monitoring. While installing security cameras and alarm systems are great deterrents, they usually cannot stop criminals. Alarm systems can notify a central station of an event occurring, and security cameras have the ability to record and catalog that event. Having a recording of a break in is a good thing to have. In some and maybe even maybe cases, the video recordings will help you to identify the intruder. Now, you can take the security cameras to the next level. Have them monitored live. When an event occurs, the video monitoring company can interact in real time with the intruders, they can contact the authorities and they can provide intel to the authorities when they arrive on the scene. No you have gone from reacting to crime after the fact to preventing crime before it even occurs.
