Intruders beware! A West Yorkshire security company has become one of the first to introduce technology that should mean there is no hiding place for criminals.
Keybury Fire & Security, in Keighley, is offering up-to-the-minute technology that enables business or domestic customers to keep tabs on their CCTV security systems remotely through their mobile phones or iPads.
The new state-of-the-art software is compatible with Smartphones such as Apple iPhones, iPad, iPod Touch and Android mobiles.
Patrick Beebe, operations director of Keybury, which also has offices in Skipton, Ilkley, Harrogate and York, said: “It quite literally allows users to tap into their CCTV cameras live and check that all is safe and sound at their business premises – or their homes if they are away. It evens works from abroad.
“Importantly, if customers connected to monitoring centres receive notification via their mobiles of an incident, they can view the scene immediately and respond accordingly, either by visiting their premises in person or alerting police. Real-time photographs can also be taken, which can be e-mailed as proof of suspicious activity, as well as being retained to give a log of the date and time of a recorded incident.
“This represents the latest in 24/7 fingertip security control – the quality of the high definition pictures is good, while a built-in illumination facility also enables night-time viewing.”
Mr Beebe said a keyholder responsible for premises could be off duty and keep an eye on the property remotely after an alert and take action or be reassured that everything was OK.
