Live Video Monitoring
Commissionaires can monitor most existing networked recorders or design and install a custom CCTV system for you. We offer:
It is estimated that less than 10% of all video cameras are being monitored in real-time, with cameras only recording once an event has already triggered a sensor and leaving no opportunities to stop the event in its tracks. Live video monitoring is proactive and deters crime at the perimeter before it happens. When an alert is received, Commissionaires take appropriate action, such as providing a real-time audio warning to the intruder – most often causing them to flee the scene, thus deterring crime before it happens. As needed, we will dispatch our mobile guards or police services to secure the scene.
If Commissionaires identify a risk to your site, we react immediately and will:
- Communicate directly to the location, sending audio warnings via loudspeaker
- Dispatch our mobile guards or police services
- Contact you (or the keyholder, depending on your security instructions)
Nine times out of ten the loudspeaker warning is enough to drive the intruders away and stop crime before it takes place.
As our professional security staff is watching and reporting on live footage, emergency services will react immediately to investigate the issue. In comparison, if it was a static alarm signal, without any visual verification, the incident may be deprioritized, leading to longer response times and an increased potential for damage or theft. Commissionaires can monitor most existing networked recorders or design and install a new CCTV system for you.
Elevator Monitoring Service
Commissionaires Victoria, the Islands and Yukon is proud to be able to offer elevator monitoring through our 24/7/365 operations center located in Victoria.
You have probably noticed a telephone or call button in elevators that allow you to call for help should the elevator get stuck due to power loss or system failure. We are the ones who respond to that distress call.
Being trapped, left in the dark and not knowing when the light will be back on or when the door will open can be very serious. Our personnel are trained to provide a calming voice and can take action to help.
Commissionaires will inform the appropriate authorities whether property management, elevator service repair or the fire department.
Elevator Monitoring with a difference
Commissionaires exceed expectations by being one of the only elevator monitoring companies that has mobile patrol units available to be dispatched to the location as needed. Commissionaires can access buildings, obtain physical keys, operate key switches, and escort elevator service repair companies as needed.
Complete investigative and surveillance services
Our experienced investigators come from former police services and private industry investigations. Remove doubt through discreet inquiries, observation, and surveillance to find the facts upon which good, sound decisions can be made. Investigators are here to help you with personal, workplace, or insurance surveillance for suspected frauds, domestic situations, child custody issues, relationship issues, and more. Some typical scenarios involve:
- Locates/estate settlements for service of documents
- Child and family maintenance issues
- Service of divorce documents and foreclosures
- Missing persons (Law firms and individuals occasionally need to find people with whom they have lost contact over time)
Commissionaires investigators meet the Province of B.C. licensing requirements and are registered with the Private Investigators Association of B.C.
