How To Secure Your Remote Property Without Access to Mains Electricity?

Remote Property Cctv Monitoring

According to recent surveys, nearly 10% of small businesses experience theft or burglary on their premises every year. You don’t want to roll the dice with the future of your business, particularly if you are holding sensitive customer data. But what if you don’t have access to mains electricity when securing your remote property? These are the key solutions you can consider.

Secure Your Remote Property with Remote CCTV Monitoring

Remote CCTV monitoring is one of the best and most popular ways to secure remote properties without access to mains electricity. All you need for this to be a suitable choice is an internet connection.

There are more than 6 million CCTV cameras across the UK. CCTV refers to a security camera that records video. These can be hidden or be on full display and act as a deterrent. Typical CCTV monitoring systems will record footage while remote CCTV systems are actively monitored from a remote location. As such, a potential theft can be prevented without delay because security professionals will be notified by an alarm system that is connected to the monitor for CCTV cameras. The remote team can even move and adjust the cameras to get the information they need.

CCTV remote monitoring provides numerous benefits. Since they are equipped with an alarm, they can scare off criminals and notify people nearby of an issue. This form of CCTV monitoring is also incredibly cost-effective. It saves you from the expense of a full manned guarding unit.

Keep Your Remote Property Secure with Off Grid Security Cameras

You could also use an off-grid CCTV camera monitoring system for your business. In this case, your CCTV systems are powered by renewable forms of energy such as solar or wind. As such, the entire system can be installed without any need for power or data cables. CCTV cameras can be highly efficient and as such, they don’t need massive amounts of power to remain operational.

A key benefit of this type of CCTV system is that there is no dependence on the national grid. If there is a local power cut, your CCTV system will continue to operate effectively, providing you with the footage you need. You can also ensure that your security systems are not costing you a fortune in energy bills. Although systems that run on renewable power may not be as effective and advanced as CCTV remote monitoring systems.

Prevent Unauthorised Access with Manned Guarding

When your business is closed and there is no one on the premises, it’s always going to be vulnerable to a potential attack. Criminals and thieves see an unmanned business as a fantastic opportunity where they can take advantage. This could lead to the destruction of your remote property, vandalism or even theft. If you are concerned about this issue and your business is in a remote area, then you can consider manned guarding. Manned guarding will ensure that no one unauthorised will be able to access your businesses remote property. You will have complete flexibility, allowing you to decide when you need manned guards at your business address.

A key benefit of manned guarding is that you will have someone on-site, ready to prevent a security breach. However, this is one of the more expensive types of security for business owners.

There are numerous options that you can use to secure a remote property when you don’t have access to mains electricity. Exploring these choices can give you the peace of mind you need that your business is protected from major threats.
