  • Data Protection: Implement robust cybersecurity measures to safeguard camera feeds and sensitive data.
  • Scalability: Opt for a scalable camera system that can adapt to the changing needs of a growing city.

By adhering to these best practices, cities can maximize the benefits of city surveillance cameras in enhancing public safety and security.

Remote Security Monitoring

Remote security monitoring is a process that allows security professionals to keep an eye on your city surveillance camera system from afar 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Step 1: Choose the Cameras for Site Surveillance

You begin by determining which cameras will be watched and at what times. Verkada’s high-tech AI analytics then notify on-call security personnel whenever a human is detected at the scene.

Step 2: Security Officer Checks for Danger

Second, when an alarm goes off, the people who are watching the live video feed will look at the footage to see if anything is in immediate danger.

Step 3: Security Officer Responds to Incidents

Ultimately, if there is a real danger, the monitoring agent will immediately contact the customer’s call list. In the event of an emergency, customers can also request that agents contact the appropriate authorities.
