Remote Video Surveillance

Utilizing our VSaaS Remote Guard program SMART Security Pros coordinates the installation of video cameras on your property and feeds those cameras back to our 24 hour Real Time Operations Center (RTOC) and to your tablet or mobile device.

Our Remote Guard service involves the installation of a video surveillance system at your property that is actively monitored by law enforcement experienced agents during the times that your property is most at risk. There is no up front cost and everything is included in one low monthly subscription price.

SMART Security’s Mobile Remote Surveillance Trailers are the perfect solution for a variety of sites, usually where a permanent video surveillance system installation is not possible. We protect construction sites, fairs and festivals, short term outdoor events, concerts venues, parking lots and many more.
