The Benefits Of Video Surveillance For Caregivers

According to recent national surveys, 70% of caregivers with a full or part-time job suffer from work-related difficulties due to their dual care giving roles. Many caregivers in this situation end up having to rearrange work schedules, decrease hours, or take leave in order to fulfill their roles as caregivers.

Remote Video surveillance solutions can ease this burden and allow you to care of your loved ones while balancing other responsibilities. From checking in on elderly family members to making sure your children arrive home safely from school, video surveillance can seamlessly integrate into and improve your daily routine.

As loved ones begin to age, they may require more assistance around the home, aid for everyday tasks, or you may just want to check-in on them more often. Assisted living facilities can be pricey, and many elders do not relish the idea of living there

Video monitoring solutions can help older family members hold onto independence, while worried family members maintain peace of mind. The cost of video surveillance installation & monitoring is minimal in comparison to an assisted living facility, and elders can continue their normal routines.

Use Remote video monitoring to check in on your loved ones to make sure they haven’t fallen or injured themselves, and even to ensure hired caregivers treat them well. It is an unfortunate truth that some professional caregivers do not carry out their jobs properly. Video  relieves this worry by putting you in control.

In addition, incorporate a remote unlock feature to provide added convenience and safety. If you have a caregiver who comes regularly to tend to an elder family member, remotely unlock the door to let them in or automatically unlock at a certain time of day. This allows caregivers to come and tend to your loved ones without them having to get up and answer the door.

  • Provides assurance that your loved one is being cared for safely and effectively.
  • Confirms you have an honest, well-trained and reliable caregiver.
  • Spots things you and your caregiver may need to discuss. For example, perhaps you have an easier way to help your loved one in and out of bed or getting dressed.
  • Caregivers feel a more positive connection with families, knowing they are being informed and trusted they are doing a good job.

Benefits for the Police & Emergency Services

Verified Video alarms provide immediate and actionable information for greater situational awareness, officer safety and more arrests. The monitoring station operator is a virtual eyewitness to the event. As a result, verified Video monitoring is the only method accepted & endorsed by ACPO & CFOA for reasons that include:

  • Better use of resources by preventing dispatches to false alarms.
  • Greater safety for the responding officer being aware that an actual intruder is present.
  • More effective dispatch policies prioritise crimes-in-progress over standard (non-verified) burglar alarms
  • Higher arrest rates mean a safer community and lower crime rates.
