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.
