Active Monitoring:
A Deterrent to Crime

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Physical Security

It is the threat of getting caught that deters criminals from committing crimes. With standard alarm systems, the reality is, there is a very low certainty of being caught, so there is very little deterrence for criminals. Live monitoring services increase the likelihood that criminals will be caught in the act, making them a much stronger crime deterrent than traditional unmonitored CCTV systems, or even onsite security guards.

In this paper, we explore the differences between passive and active security measures. We identify the strengths and weaknesses of the different options for securing properties – and the consequences of making the wrong choice.
