High quality, reliable CCTV monitoring is a proven method of keeping your property or land continually secure and can be combined with other security measures and visual deterrents. The Cerberus Monitoring Station is fully accredited to NSI Gold standard, one of only a handful in the UK, and utilises leading edge technology to support the monitoring team in detecting and analysing threats to your property, and taking the appropriate action.
Independently and externally accredited to the highest standard in this arena means you are guaranteed a high quality service and response to any call to action. In order to achieve this we make considerable on-going investment in our systems and processes.
A reliable CCTV monitoring service
If you are dissatisfied with the monitoring service provided by your existing supplier, our in-house IT team will guarantee a seamless transition to our system and ensure we dovetail into your systems as required.
We work direct with police forces to establish the identity of perpetrators and to determine the most appropriate preventative action required.
Whether you want to prevent unauthorised entry and trespassing, squatting or fly-tipping, or just maintaining tight control over who accesses and enters your properties, we ensure your remote CCTV monitoring system is not only technologically excellent, but manned by professional security operatives making sure your property is protected end to end by trained professionals.
Ensure your business is protected 24/7 with professional video monitoring of all key parts of your property. Our trained rapid response team is ready to react to any sign of a potential or actual illegal activity – helping you minimise the risk of costly security breaches.
24/7 Remote Monitoring
All CCTV that we install is protected 24/7 at our remote CCTV monitoring station, also known as an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). Our trained personnel give you peace of mind by ensuring your premises are under careful watch by professional teams ready to respond to any potential incident.
Aside from being a clear visual deterrent to prevent illegal activity, Cerberus’ CCTV monitoring services are supported by a trained network of security personnel ready to step in when, and even before, your business needs protection.
As standard, we investigate and filter out false alarms and activations and notify blue light response teams and security patrols when required to help protect and secure your premises.
When combined with other security measures such as security and intruder alarm systems and anti-theft devices, CCTV remote monitoring inserts the experienced human security element into your business security – giving you the expert security enforcement to protect your property at the moment it is needed.

What are the legal requirements for using Cerberus’ CCTV on my business premises?

Additionally, there are stipulations on how you should securely store the CCTV footage.
Are Cerberus’ CCTV monitoring services GDPR Compliant?
One of the legal requirements for running CCTV surveillance is the secure storage of the CCTV footage in accordance with the GDPR standards.
