How the CCTV Hub can Protect Vacant Property
The Impact of Vacant property
Government data released in November 2022 reveals over a quarter of a million long-term empty residential properties across Britain, excluding the thousands of empty commercial properties. Vacant property refers to the building being devoid of people and belongings. This results in a structure that is vulnerable to problems including vandalism, trespassing and arson; often leading to expensive restoration costs.
How The Hub Helps Protect Vacant Property
Alongside other physical security measures, integrating a CCTV system can aid in deterring and detection of unwanted criminal activity. The rapid and re-deployable 4G CCTV Hub from Redvision is ideally suited to provide this protection due to its 4G connectivity, detection and monitoring capabilities, and rugged enclosure.
Rapidly deployed within minutes, the CCTV Hub can provide control, monitoring, and playback of up to four CCTV cameras from a remote location by connecting to the device over a 4G network. This enables multiple forms of monitoring and response, without the need of having a manned, on-site station. Cameras can be connected directly to the hub, or up to 100m away, providing full site coverage.
As well as being able to remotely access recorded footage from the Hub to detect any criminal activity, the Hub can help deter the intruders before any damage occurs. Detection methods, including Redvision AI analytics and Luminite PIR detectors, are seamlessly integrated to create alarms should an unwanted intruder enter the site. Once detected, the intruder can be challenged with an overt white spotlight from a Redvision PTZ camera or audio over loudspeaker to deter them from entering the site. Moreover, visible confirmation of an intruder enables the monitoring station to provide police response should it be required.
In order to respond to events and alarms as they happen, it is important to monitor the CCTV system installed onto vacant property sites. With the Hub, you have two options. Firstly, by utilising the RedVu CMS, a free to download central management system capable of managing thousands of Hubs, provides the option of self-monitoring and managing multiple sites. Alternatively, the Hub comes complete with Immix integration, enabling third-party monitoring stations to provide response to alarms during the hours required.
In keeping with Redvision heritage, the CCTV Hub is manufactured from a rugged, marine-grade enclosure. This provides re-assurance that while the Hub is protecting the vacant property, it will protect itself from harsh environments and vandalism.
A Rugged, 4G Camera Station
The Hub is a rugged, 4G camera station capable of providing rapid deployment and remote connection to four CCTV cameras across a vacant property. Onboard recording provides evidence of any unwanted intrusion, while integrated detection and monitoring systems enables the Hub to deter intruders before criminal activity occurs.
