Need of supervision:-
Before 21st century security concerns to general public and property were never so important then they are now. Security has become one of the pivotal points in any society’s well-being and progress. The threats have made supervision over them ever so necessary to keep the society pure from criminal activities and antisocial aspects.
Threats posed to societies:-
One of the biggest threats to every country, city or locality whether in the west or east is terrorism. Other threats include bank robbery, kidnapping, theft, hijacking, killing and lots of others. Authorities have taken and are taking lot of concrete steps to create hurdles in the way of lawlessness. One of these steps is installing surveillance cameras to monitor and closely watch the activities of every one.
But where do all these camera reels and surveillance records are saved and monitoring is done? Specially built supervision spaces are almost everywhere like cities, industrial areas, sensitive areas, sports stadiums. But a camera might not be helpful if CCTV control room design is not according to the modern standards.
Important standards:-Some of the standards that are important and should not be taken lightly in setting up a surveillance office include
No Unauthorized access:-
You must have read these kinds of words outside any surveillance space; it is because inside the office a lot of important, confidential and necessary supervision and tasks must be going on and any kind of disturbance to the staff can hinder their work. So the rule of no unauthorized access must be implemented strictly in order to make sure the monitoring is done properly. After all everything done inside is done to keep you and your loved ones safe.
CCTV surveillance is considered as an important feature in strategizing against antisocial activities that cannot be neglected. So it has to operate from a well situated office and the interior of the office should be spacious that allows easy mobility to the workers. Often surveillance offices are built in a building where no other office wants to locate or mostly they are situated in the basements of the buildings.
Experienced work force:-
This is one of the important aspects in the working of any surveillance office. The work force has to be experienced and should be acquainted with the modern rules and concepts of monitoring. An inexperience worker is like a weak point in any security premises which can easily result in an unwanted happening which is hard to control afterwards.
Professionals believe in quality and advise the usage of quality material especially cables and other important monitoring devices. This may incur extra cost in the CCTV control room design, but the staff won’t face any difficulty afterwards. Cabling must also be structured and well managed; otherwise it can create lot of mess for the staff and maintenance cost can exceed the amount saved.
World today is in more crises than it was ever before. The advancement in the technological trends has made it more efficient yet very fragile. No doubt technological advancements have always been meant for the sake of introducing betterment in different domains in order to make this world a better place; however things have gone another way round. Technology is used ethically and unethically, it mainly depends on who is it that is using it and what are the intentions behind such usage. Burglary, breaking into someone’s personal and business premises, kidnapping, stabbing and other similar crime ratios are on the rise and there are many latest tools that are used in order to achieve these unenthusiastic goals.
To meet and beat these threats and challenges one must have hands on a smart surveillance system that is installed in the personal and/or business premises so as to ensure that things are under control and are constantly monitored. The success of the said surveillance system strongly would depend on the approach towards CCTV control room design. If it has been designed in a spacious and professional manner by applying the right approach and tools, then things will be easy to manage and record. The critical task of monitoring will become very easy.
On the other hand, if tasks are carried out in an unorthodox way as far as the design is concerned, then the application of the latest devices and cameras is going to be classified as a useless effort. These tools and cameras won’t function properly and the results will not be up to the marks and set standards. One must therefore ensure that the CCTV control room design is a planned one and is in line with the actual needs. Over exaggeration may not help the cause and tasks may become overburdened and this is where stoppages and failures will start taking place.
